I am at a McDonald’s now just to make a brief post. When I leave here I will cross into North Carolina within two minutes.
Early this morning I had another dog encounter. Heading north on SR 521 out of Lancaster three dogs spotted me and started running towards me from the other side of the highway. They didn’t cross the road and I turned and went back the way I came. There were two Doberman’s and a Rottweiler. I waited for about five minutes contemplating what to do and then called 911 for an officer to assist me. The officer met me and I showed him where the dogs were. He approached the area and all three dogs barked and surrounded his car. As I watched from a safe distance, the officer assessed the situation. After a few minutes the 911 operator called me back and said the officer believes the dogs have shock collars and would probably not leave the property. I told the operator I didn’t feel good about testing shock collars. She said the officer would wait in the median until I got past. I asked if the officer would get out of his car while waiting in the median to see if the dogs crossed the barrier. She reported the officer said no.
The officer came back to where I was to see what I wanted him to do. He was unable to locate owners by running tag numbers on cars parked in the driveway. I told him I was not familiar with the area and asked him if there was another way around the dogs. He gave me directions to get around and I was on my way.
Enjoy some photos for now.
