|We were in the backyard on a nice summer day doing lawn work. The dog, a terrier, who was chained-up on a 30-foot chain in the yard, began barking a lot. We knew something was up.
Then we saw one of those Jehovah's Witness guys walking from our front walk, down the sidewalk. He was wearing a suit and had a bible in his hand.
The dog hated strangers, especially men, and charged at the man, barking and growling like the the dog was going to mawl him.
We didn't think anything about it at first, because this was normal behavior for the dog. It was always full of energy and barked a lot anyway. And after all, he was chained-up. So we were not alarmed.
The dog must have really scared the Jehovah's Witness person, because the man began to run. That was the absolute worst thing he could have done. It made the dog insane.
The dog ran faster at him, broke the chain, and then ran full speed at him, barking and growling the whole time.
Now, the Jehovah's Witness man was running as fast as he could down the sidewalk toward the corner, while the dog chased after him. He looked like he was an olympic sprinter, except that he was wearing a suit and was carrying a bible.
So what did I do?
I laughed my ass off!
I figured maybe this would make them think twice before they came to our block again.
I did call the dog back once they got to the far corner. It was a close call. The dog almost got him.
And no, he never came back. And neither did the rest of them that were working the other side of the street.
