Vail Daily, Vail Colorado COLeash that dogMy name is Karen Jones. I was running on the Riverwalk path recently on the right side of the path as a woman and her two dogs were walking toward me. I moved over to the left side of the path, and one of the dogs who was unleashed ran over and bit me on the leg. It bit through two layers of running pants and broke the skin. It’s a pretty bad bite; it hurts a lot right now, and I’m sure the correct protocol would have been to get her name and number. But I was a little bit in shock, and I just have never been in this situation before. She did tell me that her dog’s name was Dusty. I just wanted to say that if you are Dusty’s owner, please keep your dog on a leash. If you know Dusty’s owner, please ask her to keep her dog leashed.
