"She Can't Control Her Dog."

Yesterday I saw a woman walking her dog near the Almon Street post office. Her dog barked at another man, but not in a mean way. In a, "C'mon, play with me!" way. But it's okay if you find dog body language difficult to interpret. You don't have to like a dog barking at you. But shrug it off and walk away. Don't call the cops like this guy did, citing that she "couldn't control her dog." Bullshit. More like he couldn't control the idea that a dog didn't like him--what a smart dog! A waste of police time and an embarrassment to the woman who had a friendly dog. And what a way to ruin the beautiful Sunday we just had. Old man, do us a favour: go back to sitting on your porch and yelling at people to get off your lawn. Save money on our taxes and your cell phone bill. —I Was So Enjoying the Sunshine
