ill tell you right now, i fear no man! but dogs(even little ones) scare the crap out of me. customer calls for an estimate. i go over. ring bell, no one home. i need to measure for applications. i go to back fence. now, when no one is home, i usually rattle the fence, yell, make noise, and if there is a dog, he comes running and barking. so, i bang on fence, yell, etc. no dogs. great. i go in, start measuring. i have my head down, lookin at the wheel, im walkin, and i hear this sound....grrrrrrrr, i look up. its a dog, a very mean looking dog, hes showing his teeth(they are big), i show mine too, he doesnt look intimidated. i slowly walk backwards, out of the yard, all the while keeping this beast at the distance of my measuring wheel. i make it out, and close the gate. i dont know what kind of dog he was. but, he didnt seem so interested in biting me, seemed more interested in me just leaving, he walked me all the way out. anyone ever been bitten?
