Seems that you may experience a threat to your chosen path from an unforseen direction, and/or in unknown and possibly forbidding territory.
You may be facing and fighting old fears and foes again, and possibly the grown-up versions of them as well. Perhaps your triumph will not be in inflicting harm, but in walking away from the (city?) sidewalk and toward the (trees?) stump, where you will go to (identify with) the dog(s) and again be challenged by the grown-up version of those childhood fears, again to triumph without inflicting bodily harm.
