Re: Can I pet people's dogs?

OK sure whatever... trying not to go down to someone's level can be reserved for bullies or harsh words, not for someone violently attacking my family member. If anyone abused my pet in front of me, I would do whatever it took to stop them, plain and simple.
Preventing the woman from doing what she was doing by running away for example is one thing. Striking her is another. I guess it is a question of self-defence. I just think if you strike the woman, it changes things and leaves you yourself open to prosecution as well as her.
Everyone reacts differently and in the heat of the moment of course things can happen...
Having said that I do appreciate that one wants to protect a pet or (as you quite rightly put) a family member.
