It watched me the whole time and I watched it, I really didn't know what I would have done had it been aggressive, and I was pissed I was not packing heat. This is a popular trail, used by lots of kids and I have not walked it since. Makes me mad that a douche owner would let it run free on a public trail, even if you think your pit wont hurt a fly, Joe public walking the trail does not know that, I think that is what the assholes get off on.

Along those lines....I'll tell you my dog story. This only happened 3 weeks ago.  On many Sunday mornings, I go garden in the front yard. I take my little portable radio with me and listen to NPR Ted Talks and This American Life. It's a nice little routine.  Well, now I have the dog. He is sweet and kind and gentle and I make him sit next to me while I chop or dig.  ( I have a tiny little chair, because I can't really just stand and garden anymore).  There's a family who walks by on Sunday mornings on their way to church.  Very cute. Kinda "fundy" and biblical looking with 4 little children all dressed up in quite the finery.  The children are young, All under 6.  They walk by and we exchange pleasantries. The oldest politely asks if he can pet my dog and my dog goes to say hi. He's all wiggle and squirmand wag; a torrent of gentle enthusiasm. Then they go on their way.  Well, the dog loves this. He loves children.  But then another family came by, this time a cute Hispanic family with two women, and two children. The children maybe 7 and 8.  Well, Mr. Dog is SO excited!! And this time, he disobeyed my command to stay and ran over to greet the children. But they were not delighted. Here was a 100 pound dog loping (charging ) at them with mouth open, and huge rows of sharp, white teeth..(FANGS!)  This family did not smile. This family did not laugh and greet the dog.  They screamed in pure TERROR and they RAN right into the street. I live on a busy street. It is NOT safe to run into the street.  They (the children mostly) were running into the street, shrieking and crying, convinced this monster was going to eat them.  I was mortified. I quickly had the dog and was reassuring them it was ok and I was sorry. I even said it all in Spanish just in case.  They smiled uncertainly but you could see they knew I was wrong about that. Then they crossed the street!  I felt awful.  Now when I garden I take the dog, but he's on a leash because I just can't risk that.

We often walk our dog around the neighborhood. My  wife always wants to let him off the leash when we get to the local park. I always resist this impulse of hers. My reasoning: We KNOW that he won't hurt anyone but the people that he runs to for pets have no idea of how loveable he is. What you've described above is exactly what I'm talking about.

Yep! Now he's developed this play noise that is in his throat and sounds like a growl. To me, he sounds a bit like Chewbacca.  He runs up to people making this sound.  At the dog park a lot. Now at the dog park you'd think people would know dog body language, but no, he ran, romped, really, up to one lady making this sound and wanting to greet her and she hit him across the face.

Jerk LOL. My Cane Corso Coco  growls when she REALLY wants your attention.
WE took her and my old girl the English Mastiff Lola to the vet. Lola for a rabies shot and Coco to see why she limps in the mornings. Turns out she had injured her knee. So the vet says she not allowed to run for a while. And no more running to fetch.. her favorite thing in the world.
So now she's so frustrated because I won't play ball with her and she comes up with here stupid ball in her mouth growling at me Laughing
They weighed her, 129 pounds. And when she goes after a thrown ball she has all that weight to deal with.
Also the vet says she's fat LOL. WE feed her once a day and now we have cut down a little.
