So Daisy was ten feet away and the woman was kicking at air with that much distance between them? I really don't think there's any reason to scold her for trying to kick the dog. There's that much space between you already and she takes a step back as well? I'm having a tough time imagining how either of you could think that she was going to kick Daisy from that distance, unless she's Stretch Armstrong. If she was really that far away, accusing her of trying to kick Daisy sounds kind of like the kid who complains that their brother is touching them because he's inching his hand across the car seat. I would skipped the part about kicking the dog and left it at, "Don't worry, she won't jump on you. I've got her under control and we're leaving." As Girly said, my facial expression would probably say, "Why are you doing the foxtrot in a park?"
