On our way back from Satya’s walk we saw a lady that looked like someone we may’ve met before. So much so that Satya jumped and tried to kiss her.
By the time it dawned on me that (a) I have never met this lady before, and (b) that she doesn’t like dogs (like, at all) it was too late.
I tried to pull Satya back but I was carrying a shopping bag with the other hand. Her paws managed to make contact on that lady’s chest. Oh, the daggers she shot at me.
Alas, it didn’t stop there. Satya and I kept walking down the pavement. I then looked over my shoulder and that lady was still staring at us. I turned and kept walking another bunch of steps until I checked again. Sure enough her eyes where still fixated on me. Yikes.
Eventually, thank God, she was on her way. Dear me, that must be the scariest encounter I’ve had in ages. And it was in my neighbourhood so I dread at the prospect of walking into that woman again.
I am (slowly) learning to be more responsible with Satya. Keep her on a tighter leash and always assume that people don’t like dogs unless they actively come forward. Always stay mindful.
To that woman I send love and ask for forgiveness. I have aggravated and perhaps even scared her. I’m sorry.
