DD, age 5, and I went on a bike ride today. She was leading and as she went past a garden she started singing very loudly. A massive Rottweiler jumped up at garden gate and barked really loudly, making DD jump so much she fell off her bike. Luckily she fell onto grass and was fine, owner went it to garden to see why dog was barking, said he was friendly and DD was stroking him so all fine in my opinion. When she told DP tonight however he thought I should've had a go at the dog owner and that such a big dog shouldn't be in front garden. WIBU to not have said anything?

I have had a neighbour complain to the HA about my dog barking 'all the time'. She only barks when their kids are out in the street banging a ball against my fence. The HO took so little notice they decided to film my dig barking. They also filmed the ball being banged against my fence. The HO wrote them a warnign about it!! grin

The dog in the OPs case was only doing its job!! YANBU!!

When I was a teenager, there was a Great Dane who lived in a house next to the main road - the drop to pavement was about 5foot, but the drop in his garden was only a couple of feet.

Dog would regularly put his head over to 'greet' passers by with a throaty bark- just a bit unfortunate that his head would be about level with theirs. grin.

He was an evil git that dog grin
