In response to the 'Bravest' thread, in which I feel I made a good showing.
Ten years ago, my wife and I (pauses for effect) were walking along a section of Hadrian's Wall when we were accosted by a very large, very angry dog.
Leaping into action, I grabbed my wife and shoved her in front of me.
I've felt extremely ashamed ever since, and so I should. Crap behaviour. She calmed the dog and we all made friends but needless to say, neither of us have mentioned it since. This is doubly embarrassing as I market myself as a dog photographer, with a special affinity with dogs.
I suspect this will be a three post failure, but do feel free to chime in...
