My older son also has an autism disorder (Asperger's) and both my boys are nervous around dogs. I've been in a similar position many times, with unleashed dogs. We had such a situation on the Rail Trail just last week. Thankfully I was able to get myself between the kids and the dog and order it off, which worked fine.

So sorry this happened to your daughter. I don't know what to do with dog owners any more; I sympathize with the lack of accessible leash-free areas within the city, but so many dog owners it seems don't take into account the responsibilities to their dogs (a border collie in the city? really?) and to the community when deciding to get a dog.

As always (especially with animals it seems) it's a selfish few who ruin things for the responsible many.
