    Back when I had my Camaro, I had a German Shepard run into the side of it as I was driving through a neighborhood. Of course it hit the only metal thing on the car, the rear quarter. Stupid Dog!

    Not mowing related. I have a favorite fishing hole I liketo go to. I have to drive through this little eye blink town to get there. One time I was slowing down, (damned 55 to 35 and back to 55 in less than a minute), and out of the ditch came this Cujo looking St. Bernard. I was in a brand new Jimmy 4X4 and down to around 35 mph. This damned dog attacked the truck tires and I heard a thump and the dog went rolling into the ditch, got up and chased me all the way through the town. Then I never saw the dog again. I stopped at the local Sissy's (local convenience store) on the way back through town and asked if anybody knew the dog as it left a dent behind the drivers door and actually took a chunk out of the left front tire. Nobody would admit they knew the dog.
    The only other time was when we were chipping out a couple of stumps in a fenced in backyard. The homeowner decided to let their English bulldog out into the yard with us. Normally a very friendly and calm, yet slobbery, dog. Well, I guess this dog took offense to this large, noisy piece of equipment tearing up his stumps. My partner had to kick the dog to get it away from the cutter. He was trying to bite it everytime we fired it up. The homeowner got mad because she thought it was cute. :dizzy: Should have just ground the dog to dust.
