Hi Mitzi & Cynthia,
I’m writing to thank you for all the help and training you gave me when I was with Davey Tree.
My wife and I were on our morning walk today when I spotted a pit bull mix that we had never seen in our neighborhood before. We started to cross the street to give it some room and it came at us. I stopped and faced it in the middle of the street. I made myself as big as I could and started yelling at it and it veered away at the last second. It made a couple more close approaches and backed away; wouldn’t hold eye contact which made me feel better. Lot’s of teeth and snarling! I thought for a second I was going to have to fight it. There’s no doubt I would have been bitten if I had turned away from the dog.
I called 911 and reported an aggressive dog loose in the street and that I had been attacked.
The nice lady told me that if I wasn’t bitten, I wasn’t attacked and that I should have called the non emergency number but she would pass the message along. I’m not sure what to make of that.
The rest of the morning has been pretty quiet.
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I appreciate the skills you shared with me. I hope all is well with you and the rest of your team.
