i was walking by the pont de la tour this morning, with my dog and a friend. the hedgetrimming man out front, kicked the dog!
he was sniffing the hedge (dog not man) and i guess he thought he was going to lift his leg up.
he said, 'no!' and kicked his rear with his foot, moving him away.
i said, 'don't kick my dog, i'll move him'. he did not respond.
surely on a public thoroughfare the hedgetrimming man does not have the right to kick any suspected canine leg lifters?
it was a disproportional gesture for the anticipated action.
thanks hedgetrimming man! what a strange way to go about your business.

Outrageous! I will keep an eye out for this [non-sniffing] hedge-trimmer and, as much as I abhor violence, I will kick his backside!! I trust your dog has made an excellent recovery - and you, too.....and your friend :-)

That's way out of line.

I'm about to run past PdlT. If I see him I'll aim a clearing-your-nasal-passages-whilst-running-and-not-with-a-hanky thing at him ;-)

When you say he kicked your dog, was it a tap with his foot, or a Jack Black in Anchorman drop-goal?
