Last Friday my partner and I adopted a shelter dog. He loves running and so do I, so I’ve taken him running with me for a few miles several times.
I live in an area where thankfully I am rarely harassed while running. Two of the times I’ve taken my dog running with me, however, I’ve been honked and hooted at by men in three different vehicles, including a delivery truck yesterday. He and I are still getting adjusted to each other and to running together. Having men honk and hoot at us is NOT HELPING. It’s startling and distracting for both of us. It’s rude. It’s upsetting.
