Today’s WTF moment…

Miss D proves to be a wonder to me. We did not meet up with any dogs this evening, thank Dawg! However, on our nightly patrol we were passed by several cyclists, both in the proper bike lane and on our sidewalk. No problem. A little excited panting, but no “Alert!” or “Suspicious!” stance. (Yes! Treat.) We were also passed by walkers and this is where it gets interesting.

A single person passing, either from behind or coming toward us, was watched with suspicion, but from a seated position, well out of their path. (Yes! Treat.)  Couples walking together silently were also watched with suspicion, a little more intently and with a definite unfriendly stance. Still, no “Alert!” or threatening behavior, so I’d say it was a soft B-/C+. But couples walking and talking, or groups of three or more, were found to be very threatening. We had to cross the street before they got too close.

Large groups of strangers coming toward us, OK. I kind of understand why she would feel threatened. But why the couple talking? Is it simply the noise of talking that made them different than the silent couple? It’s not as if they were arguing or talking excitedly. It was simple chit-chat. Two gals catching up on the week’s events. What is so threatening about that? WTF?
