WTF?

So today I went for a walk on the beach with my wife (her birthday). We had two of our dogs with us. The beach was populated - so we had our dogs on leash. If the beach is empty - we'll often let them run off leash, but they come when called. Immediately.

So on to the story... Guy has a labrador - running FAR in front of him. Off leash. Dog is running up to everyone - K9 or human, ends up facing off with another off leash dog. Nothing came of it, but could have. So I asked if he had a leash "nope - don't have one on me". Said something about there being a leash law and him obviously having no control over his dog (dog refused to come when call - obviously a game).

Dip...poop... gives me this "we don't use leashes 'round here" and "ya'll with leashed dogs are the real problem"

I have no problem with dogs off leash - in the proper setting, and with a well trained dog - dogs enjoy time off leash. But in a densley populated area, with a poorly trained dog - just an accident/ bite/ dog fight waiting to happen. Of course - had a bite happened, the off leash lab would have all of a sudden been a pit bull.

Damn irresponsible dog owners!

Just had to rant...

Yup... I"m the problem! The RESPONSIBLE DAMN DOG OWNER PROBLEM.

The mind boggles at his logic. I don't even understand what this means. So his dog is free to attack anyone or anything and won't obey it's lazyass owner, and YOU'RE part of the problem?

Sure, It's no problem until someone complains. Then you're the problem for saying anything.

I empathize with you. I spent a LOT of time training my dog when I got her. It really annoys me when people don't train their dogs.

Obviously the guy is too much of a moron to realize if something happened, in our litigious society, he could get sued in a blink.

Everyone want all the dogs tied up...

And then wonders why their trash is always attacked by skunks/coons/etc and wonders why deer are brave enough to wander the suburbs...

I mean, when Massachusetts suddenly has a coyote problem, come on. Cave men has this figured out 1000's of years ago.

LEASHED - or well trained.

If you live in the middle of BFE and have 100 acres and a dog that respects the boundries (physical or previously laid out by the master) - fine. But lets face of it, most of us don't.

I have the opinion that a suburban dog's place is inside the home - obviously, once again, if you're in the middle of nowhere and the dog has a job to do this doesn't apply.

I don't believe in tying up dogs outside, there are these cool things called fences... and um... inside...

But of course... it's much better to let your dog roam... neighbors love having dog crap on their yard, dogs never get in fights, never chase or kill cats (that's another issue...) , and dogs certainly never get into trash...

Duuuuuuuude... I've got it. I'm the problem because I'm a suburban ******* that actually passed gradeschool!

I grew up in the suburbs... Every boy wandered around town with his dog, and many other dog wandered around town without their boys...

The average 10yo could do a respectable job of breaking up a dogfight.

Somehow we all survived. I don't recall the world being covered in dog doo.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Then I remembered the rule about not feeding the troll, so I chose to ignore it.

What can be said? People are stupid. You know, and we all know that you were in the right, and that guy should probably have his head examined, but what are you going to do? Not even worth worrying about.
