Ok, I know I'm going over old ground by reviving this thread but I really just wanted to vent. I just had a really awful confrontation with a large, intimidating man about his dog that was charging around the playground (I was with my 2 year old). I tried asking him politely to please put his dog on its lead and basically he told me I was overreacting and being unreasonable and generally got quite aggressive. Meanwhile he wasn't even able to call his dog to him to put the lead on (it was running all over the place). It was really awful and not what I needed at 39 weeks pregnant!
