After work I took the boys with me to drop off our two bikes at the shop to have new inner tubes installed. When I got there the technician told me I could wait, as it would only take a half-hour. I said I had two dogs in the car and he said I could let them run in the fenced yard next to the shop where they had a track so people could try out mountain bikes.
I got the boys out and pocketed some poop bags, knowing Duke, and released them in the yard.
You would have thought those two had never been outside in their lives. They immediately started running as fast as they could around the yard. Duke disappeared behind some of the staff cars parked in the yard. I call to him and he came charging out directly at me. Like John Grogan said about Marley, I could tell the pilot had left the wheelhouse.
How and why he didn't see me standing there I'll never know but before I could move he slammed into me and knocked me on my a**.
Unlike the last time he did not hurt my knee so no harm was done.
Oh, and yes he did poop.

Haha.. I'm picturing Duke flying around like that - sounds like something Abbey would do. Thankfully she's pretty small (~45lbs) so she doesn't knock me over nearly as easily.
Too Funny! Hope your keester isn't bruised... did any one else witness that fun little display?

Cinder did that to me once. But from behind. I swear it was like it the cartoons. I was horizontal to the ground, airborne. It was not a soft landing. But when Cinder saw me on the ground she was suuuuper excited since she was sure I was down there to play. I took a moment to make sure all my parts still worked.
The important question is.....who saw?
I have never been knocked down by a dog from the front. Not even by Hershey Kisses, but then she is not a jumper.
On the other hand, several dogs at the dog parks have taken me down from behind. Two dogs running together, paying attention to each other only. If you happen to be in their path, anything the size of a Lab will hit you right about at the back of the knees. Legs go up, back comes down, Ouch!
Hershey Kisses, In charge of getting Ed out to the dog park so that he gets some exercise.
the pilot had left the wheelhouse. lol DESCRIBES IT PERFECTLY
but then she is not a jumper.........They don't need to jump to knock you over !
At least he didn't knocked you over IN the poop!

Sounds like something Champ or Buddy would do. They just get so excited that the brain takes a coffee/tea break while the body just keeps right on going.

Too funny, espcecially since I just watched Marley and me for the first time last night! I've never been knocked down but...one time I was getting stuff together to put lil one down and I went to lean over the back of the couch to get something and my shadow of a dog decided to lay down right behind me, needless to say when I went to turn around I tripped right over her, because I was holding baby, I had to stay on my feet...it was not a graceful recovery, kinda looked like I was stepping through hot coals. The baby thought it was funny...I did not!
