Did I used to ride with you on club nights?

Seriously....some years back we had a dog issue on a part of our ride. One of the guys thought it would be a good idea to bring pepper spray (or similar product made for dogs). I can only assume gel didn't exist then (I just learned about it in this thread), or the guy didn't think/care enough about the possibilities. The group was cruising along at a good clip and here comes dog, out come spray blinding the rider directly behind, causing a wreck that broke one fellows collar bone and another of the riders still has a droopy ear from broken cartilage.

In respect to the issue. I hate little dogs, and packs of dogs worse. The little dog in the neighborhood is right there under my wheels yapping away. Get out in the country a few places 'roun here and there are packs that will come out. That is darned scary.
For the most part I generally try to stop if it's single dog, firm no/go home. I have been lucky enough not to be on the wrong side of serious from a four legged animal anyway.

Worse than dog on your bike? Dog while on your trike.....face level teeth, no fun.
