We talkin' trails then dog attack

I crossed the Bull creek today, had to stop and take my shoes off, the water is over the slab by about a foot, then dry my feet, re shoe, and run...the trail was not bad, I've decided I need to research a good shoe for trails and road.
Scared up another turkey, saw an old cemetery, saw a conservation agent, ran to a fork in the road and turned back.
As I was nearing home here came the house with the dogs, sure enough here came the one full bore right at me, I really felt like he was going to take a hunk out of me, I swung the stick and caught him on the side of the head, he yelped and retreated. I really feel bad about this, I love dogs!
I'm certain the owners have to know this has happened. I do not want to get off on the wrong foot with a neighbor but I really believed this animal was going to bite!
My stick actually broke at the bottom so I got him good.
8.13 miles today. Felt good. Trail running is slow, though. Peace (I wish)

Except for the dog, sounds like a great run. I do hope you can figure out how to talk to your neighbor and come to some kind of solution to the dog problem. That's no fun.
