I must agree with this Flo, it's a hard line to take, but people who have their dogs off-lead should be 'licensed' to do so. Really, if they have them off lead, they should be able to produce a license from their pockets saying they and their dog have been trained and the dog is a good citizen, etc. etc. But then, how would it be enforced and would it be abused? Best thing is to always be VIGILANT and always be prepared. As one other poster said, I would put myself between my dogs and another, because I would have more legal standing on getting hurt... and... most likely to survive (please God). I'm an overprotective mother anyway!
We are all wondering about Ben, looking forward to an update soon.
