I was walking the dogs this morning when I noticed man leisurely walking in the rain on the metro path. As I got closer, I realized that he was walking slowly because a Canada goose was on the path in front of him barking at him in a treatening way. As I approach with my dogs, the goose flapped it's wings and turned to shoo it's family towards the pond. I said to the man "were they holding you up?" and he responded that he didn't know if they were dangerous or not so he was going slow. "good thing" I said. "canada geese are really mean".
"oh, then I don't feel as embarassed for being afraid of them then".
He was six four, 200lbs and afraid My little 38lbs dogs were fearless.
