MaggieDog Posted July 12, 2007 Report Share Posted July 12, 2007 So there are these two nasty little chihuahuas on Maggie and I's walk route - they've chased us twice already and their owners just laugh. Maggie does ok, but I can't stand the little buggers breaking up a nice walk. Today the bigger (and louder) one was taking himself for a walk, so i decided to take charge. Picture this: We lock eyes (he's pooping on the neighbor's yard btw), he finishes and starts advancing w/ a bark. I put Maggie behind me and continue the staring contest while growling "Mine!" everytime he looks at Maggie and thinks about barking/growling. He crosses the street and Maggie and I move forward - he starts growling and I whip around (Maggie automatically goes behind me this time), lock eyes again and he suddenly decides I'm not that interesting and he was heading home anyway. LOL He ignored us while he walked home parallel to Maggie and I but on the opposite side of the street. Should be interesting to see how the chihuahua behaves the next time he sees us, but man that was wonderful to finish the walk in peace! Please note - had this been a bigger dog I would never have used such continued threat posturing, but since my dog and I outweigh the little thing by a whole heck of a lot and I had a set of keys to throw if necessary I decided it was a safe bet in this situation.
