Today, I went for a run, and my own dog attacked me. FML

Maybe it thought you needed to run a bit faster.

Perhaps the dog freaked out because of your bizarre behavior. It wants you to be back on the couch eating Cheetos as usual.

It's people like you that fill up the SPCA -__- how about you try training the dog?

I've never taken a dog to a shelter, but the dog is apparently dangerous if he attacked her randomly, which is why I suggested she may want a new dog. Unless she likes being attacked. *shrugs*

Do people really just give up dogs because they got attacked by their own? The word "attacked" can be ambiguous. We don't have enough information from OP to just jump to conclusions like you did, 14.

Well no attack is good so I'm not really jumping to conclusions.

Running away from a dog triggers their attack instinct, because you're behaving like a 'prey'. That's fairly standard dog behavior...

1- you don't just get a new one and throw away the other dog into the pound. You need to train them. With time and effort they will be very loyal

@19: I agree. I've met people that believe a dog trying to lick them is 'attacking' them. Attack varies from person to person in meaning.

23 - You've never been attacked by an ice cream monster made of your favorite ice cream. It is heaven! :D unless, of course, you don't like ice cream or are lactose-intolerant, in which case it might not be so fun :(

Sometimes when I get cold, I roll myself up in my comforter and pretend I'm a burrito.

What? I may have missed the memo where this FML had to do with pretending to be a burrito. Such a pointless and unnecessary comment and only there to gain likes because it is "random". Well I'm sorry to say your comment doesn't strike at my funny bone..

Sometimes, when I read comments like yours I cringe at the unoriginality

I think it's original, but not really suited for this FML. I mean come on. Burritos and comforters? I would have never thought of that.

A comforter is like a large fluff filled blanket put on beds to keep warm

I think it's the point to be random, you guys

Time to get some dog training??

That's strange, maybe there's something wrong with your dog and that's why it didn't recognize you?

Maybe it thought you needed to run a bit faster.

He gets practice chasing paperboys and mailmen.... How can you compete with that??

I wasn't much practice for the dog that got me on my mail route. The only practice it got was chewing it's food properly...

Maybe you should've kept your dog inside?

Theory; OP consumed too much bacon, and is sweating the grease out.
