Loose Nigerian Mastiff--rubbed against me but did not JUMP against me
If one of these dogs playfully pats your chest, you fall.
If one of these dogs sneezes against your knee, you fall.
If you are over 60 and you fall, you may be hurt so badly that you have chronic pain.
If you are over 80 and you fall, sooner or even sooner, you die.
