I've calmed down a bit now
and obviously no actual harm came to Wanda although I know she had been frightened because she was very well behaved on the way home and even sat down to let another dog pass us, without being asked!
Thanks for all the comments on my blog - especially yours Sharkie. yes it was probably unnecessary of me to run after the woman and ask her name and say her out of control dogs should be reported .... but this was after two or three perfectly polite requests for her to call her dogs away or put them on a lead for a moment while I caught Wanda... And that's the bit I really don't get....even if you see someone with a clearly badly behaved/out of control dog and your dog is behaving impeccably if they said - please could you just call your dog away or put it on a lead for a moment while I try to catch mine - why on earth wouldn't you want to help another dog owner.
I'm guessing that she was maybe embarrassed that her dogs chased Wanda who was obviously frightened.....and perhaps people don't think that Staffies are frightened of anything least of all retrievers.
