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
How many times have you heard, my dog never bites! Our training Is a joke!...dont run from the dog, use the DIAD as a weapon!....wtf?
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.
I did beat the crap out of a dog,with DIAD 1....now that was a weapon!
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??
Lol those things probably weighed about what...5lbs?
Dont want to offend the customer!....be like the Post Office! Any time a carrier gets bit, they drag them to court for damages!
It was a killer Chihuahua !
I believe 3lbs,11 ounces. Most of the weight (battery) was at the top!
How many times have you done DR - dog? Jettison that package and let dog eat it as you run away.
DIAD 1 was between 4.5 and 5 pounds, yeah. I weighed that brick to find out.
I had one that had a nice, Honey Baked ham for dinner!....Lucky dog!
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.
Hero! Plain and simple!
