By frame - Canada
Today, I was walking my husky when she saw a cat and bolted toward it. I couldn't let go of the leash because my hand was tangled up. Forced to run along, I ran into a parked van at full sprint. I lost my dog, broke two ribs and have to pay for the dent in the van. FML

Are you some sort of fucking retard? If he let go of the leash he wouldn't have gotten dragged on by the dog. Which means no broken ribs, and no car damage payment.

I'm pretty sure if you were to hold your ground your dog couldn't have pulled you too much. Unless you're a 90 pound person, in which case you probably couldn't have helped this situation. Broken ribs suck either way.

Yes they can drag greater weight...which is why op should not just lay down on the ground and hope the dog can't drag her. Humans theoretically have muscles. It's like those strong-man competitions where guys drag large trucks; how many of them do you think could move the same truck if it was turned on and gunning it the other way?

That said, I'm sorry for op. I love big dogs, but they can be a handful, particularly if they catch you by surprise. You shouldn't take a dog in public that you can't reliably control through either strength or the dog's training though. And modern cars dent way to easily. And broken ribs suck. And I hope the cat's ok.

#2, she would let go of the leash so she wouldn't be forced to run with her dog... Although #4 has a point... dogs are pretty strong, but most people are able to hold them back somewhat unless the person is small, or the dog is HUGE.

So... if you hit the van, doesn't that mean your dog ran into it too? I mean your dog was guiding you right? Hm... maybe I just can't picture it
