To most of the people I see walking their dog,
Stop running across the street with your dog as soon as you see me and my dogs. No wonder your dog is barking, pulling and squealing - you never let it meet anyone! I'd be pretty pissed too!
I own two of the nicest dogs you'll ever meet, and I take a lot of pride in them and their behavior, but the dog owners in this city are really starting to piss me off with how they shelter their dogs from others. It's actually starting to affect my dogs behavior because I try to socialize them and it's nearly impossible.
If you don't want to take on the responsibilities of owning a dog, then you shouldn't have one. Period. —Two friendly dogs! Woof woof!
