    Whatever it takes to protect myself. Damned if you do, and damned if you don't. It's a helpless and terrifying feeling getting attacked by a dog, and he had THREE after him. I don't blame him one bit.

    I like how people think we are allowed to carry pepper spray

    And I love the part about how ups trains us to handle dog situations

    Driver in my center got bit recently..he hit the dog so hard on his head with the diad...the owner had to have the dog put to sleep.

    The idea being...if you can't outrun the dog...and get back to your truck before he catches you. I get it but it's not practical. But what ever is at brown??

    DIAD 1 was between 4.5 and 5 pounds, yeah. I weighed that brick to find out.

    And they should! If your kid got bit by a neighbor's dog...you'd hold them responsible. If people can't control their dogs...they shouldn't own any!

    Back in the day a fellow driver threw his clipboard at a dog in self defense and the tab of the clip entered the dogs skull and killed it.

    I did punt a few little ankle biters. Never killed any though. Just got them a bit confused about their surroundings.
