Regarding the evil dog, I've found that if you try to talk to him he barks and snarls, but if you look away or ignore him he's OK.

I must admit I was petrified, wanted to find a tree to climb up.

I did carry on walking and he was behind me following. Whenever i turned bk, he was a foot behind me and he would start again, I just didn't want to be ambushed!
