Her husband had brought their dog and children up to meet Georgia [who was tied up]. The dogs had a kerfuffle, one child got too close and Georgia may have banged into him or grabbed at his hand. [She's not actually sure if anything happened since she wasn't there.]
She'd been scolding her husband for going up to an unknown dog when Cushion turned up, and she just transferred her anger to him. She said she'd felt bad about the confrontation and her over-reaction ever since.
So there in the park, both parties sensibly apologised. And Georgia and their dog [both not tied up or cornered] sniffed each other with no problems.
Cushion told me about the chat when he got home. I'm very proud of him.
Darn it. I'm proud of them both.
Is there a lesson in all of this, children?
P.S. Interestingly, on Saturday, Cushion met a man who had witnessed the whole Incident. He was just as uncertain about what had actually happened during the kerfuffle, and the stories matched perfectly. So, no Rashômon here :)
