Is it really too much to ask that dog owners follow the law and keep their dogs on leashes when out in public, especially if it's in parks and playgrounds?
We have had a lot of development around us recently and now live close to parkland and a playground and every day we have people walking their dogs that are not on leashes. It's not uncommon for a dog to come bounding over to you in the park area or in the playground. I don't like dogs, especially dogs I don't know. I don't care if the owner thinks that fluffy or fido won't hurt me - I don't want a strange dog coming near me or my children!
We have fenced off leash areas about 2 blocks away!
As for the bloke who doesn't clean up after his dogs when he takes them for a walk, well, I am hoping that the forces of the universe combine and make him step in his dogs' poo whilst barefoot.
That feels better now.
