Irresponsible dog owner morons

Posted on Thu, Jul 3, 2014 at 3:38 PM

We were at a local park earlier this week enjoying a little stroll when, all of a sudden, we were confronted by two large powerful looking dogs that came charging towards us growling and snarling as if they were going to rip us apart at any moment. Luckily for us the owners caught up to them and hauled them away. But it left us trembling with the adrenaline of feeling we had just dodged a bullet. The owners in turn didn't even bother to apologize or ask if we were okay. They just scampered off like rats with their mutts in tow. This raises a number of questions: With all of the modestly sized and pleasant dog breeds available why do all of these twits need dogs that were bred to harm other people? Do you think they are some kind of status symbol? Are you trying to intimidate people? Why would you ever let those beasts off leash when you know the damage they are capable of and that once they get away you may not be able to catch them in time? Why do you think you are an exception to the rules for a park that requires dogs be on leash? You know you don't have full control of those mutts. There are many responsible dog owners and many wonderful gentle dog breeds. It's a shame that a few selfish jerks can ruin it for everyone else - good dog owners and people who just want to go for a simple walk without being set upon. -Mr Magoo
