And now it’s time for …
“The Burma Shave Potentially Hostile Situation of the Week”
I don’t think there’s much I can add to this, except to say:
- Yes, the dog did start barking furiously, and
- The cyclist, who was in a position to pass the pickup truck on the right as it slowed for traffic, instead hit the brakes and backed off, seemingly not eager to pass this alert pup. This almost caused me to crash into the back of this cyclist.
But it was fine. And once we were clear of the puppy dog, we rode two-abreast in the bike lane all the way up Coburg Road, chatting and almost getting right-hooked twice.
He was a real nice guy — the cyclist, that is. Not sure about the dog.
