It came from behind his master's van and started barking loudly as it ran towards me. My instinct was to stop in my tracks and half-turn away from him. This appeared to do the trick as he stopped at exactly the same time as I did. Fortunately, this occurred at precisely the point at which I was to divert to another track, which saved me ...
