To The Editor,
Last Tuesday, May 2, around noon I was walking my daughter’s very small Norwich Terrier, Lucy, along Governor Street when a very large dog came around the corner from Bissell’s and lunged ferociously at Lucy. The owner was unable to restrain the other dog, which clamped its teeth on Lucy. Fortunately, Lucy was able to break free. She also broke free of her leash and took off at high speed towards East Ridge, which she crossed without looking both ways and without slackening her speed. Although I couldn’t possibly match Lucy’s speed I followed her right away without stopping to talk to the other dog’s owner. I have the impression the dog was brown and black and long-haired — and obviously aggressive. Several people along the way saw me hurrying carrying an empty leash and had seen Lucy tearing by.
