    ... to take your cell phone with you while walking.

    Yes, it's inconvenient when all you want is some peace and quiet while walking along a public road with your own dog, but you may need it if you have to call 911.

    Wacka-do-waddle neighbors don't make things easy for those who would prefer a live-and-let-live world without fearing an attack from a canine (or any other animal).

    Stay safe....

      I will be safe.

      It's funny--I've been walking this route 6-7 days/week since Spring of 2008. I have seen snakes, coyotes, foxes, deer, elk...and never felt I was in danger. Not til a 2 legged doofus & his outta control pooch made me carry a weapon.

      On the other hand, the elks at the 'elk farm' on my route are dropping baby elks like there's no tomorrow. ...must be 75 next to the fence. If you've never seen one, baby elks are extremely cute...and on our way back from the trail,we watched a newborn foal stand for the first time--not much cuter than that!

        That had to be a magical moment!

        Take pix if you have a camera you can hang around your neck....
