More annoying than the dogs themselves, I find their owners who stand by with a tender smile on their face, while their dog is molesting me.
'He means no harm!' they say encouragingly while their dog is aiming for my ankles.
And when dogs, who obviously haven't read that memo, sink their teeth in my calve anyway, the owners usually say accusingly: 'He never does that!' This statement is often accompagnied by a look that says: 'You must have asked for it!'
So when I heard about a little apparatus called the 'Dazer' I was delighted. 'Just one push on the button of your dazer and the big bad dog will run away!' the company states.
I wonder if it works on their owners too...
