      ( 12:30 AM ) teahouse

This morning on my way to work, I walked past a man who had, on a leash, one of those little yippy dogs.

This little dog had a wee little cast on one of his front legs. I wish I'd caught it on camera. It was adorable. In spite of it, the little dog was limping along quickly, full of energy.

A woman walking another dog went by. She had, on her leash, a really big dog. A Great Dane.

All at once, the little yippy dog started barking loudly, and lunged at the big dog.

"Whoa!" cried the owner of the little dog. "Down, boy! Do you want casts on all three of your remaining good legs?"

I couldn't help but guffaw loudly as I walked by.



I always have to admire the fearlessness of those fightin' little dogs.

I have a little dog so I am all too familiar with this scenario. Little dogs always get aggressive around big dogs because they`re nervous. It`s like a survival instinct. I`ve seen some shows on TV to train them out of it, apparently a lot of it has to do with the owner getting nervous whenever he sees a big dog (that the little dog will start up again) and the little dog can sense this. It`s a vicious cycle.

I too wish you had a shot of that and oh yeah, I so would have laughed :-)

Haha, sometimes it is the size of the dog in the fight that matters!

My cat had a bandage on his leg once, and while it was sad, it was definitely super cute.

my neighbors' dog is like that... however, it is only brave behind a screen door. in the open courtyard, it is a scaredy cat.

That's pretty cute. I can totally picture that.
