Probably not a Labrador. And hopefully not Doug.

Based on purely anecdotal evidence, which dogs do you get as far away as you can when see them?

Let's not get into a "mean dogs come from mean owners" discussion. Talking completely in generalizations, which dogs are the friendliest?

My commute runs along a multi-user trail where I encounter lots of dogs. I never worry about the Labs. They just always seem so well-behaved and happy to be out and around.

I look at dogs as sprinting competition. I treat them all as hostile, and I start the sprint as soon as I see them. When I pass, I yell "NO!" several times at them.

Not sure which breeds are nastiest. I never let them catch me to find out.

It's a good idea to ride with someone who you can out sprint. Guess which one the dog will go for?

is this self-cannibalism or schizophrenia? nmJs Haiku Shop

I held 31mph for about a minute (the adrenaline totally takes over), then the dog finally gave up. On my way back, I decided to take a different way home :).

P.S. I am also the frienliest, but bikers drive me into bloody meat frenzy.
