Re: “Aggressive owners

I understand your struggle and frustration OB. After dealing with dog-aggression with my own dog for years, I know how tempting it is to just find a place to "let them run" when it's not "likely" you will encounter any other dogs. You have chosen the wrong place. Period. You may think that you are being cautious and responsible by going at times when you are not likely to encounter other dogs, but this bitch just proves that your plan aint workin. Recall is a lot easier to teach than training your dog to accept other dogs, so why for the love of all that is holy, haven't you perfected that if you want continue to put your dog and others at risk by letting him run in a public park? Get some professional help or you will find yourself at the other end of a very serious lawsuit. Stop taking risks and putting others at risk. Jeesus.

Re: “What made you think that was okay?!

I agree - you really should have found the owner and told them what a dipshit they are.

Re: “Too many animals!

OP - try some clear expectations. When I wanted a dog, but my husband didn't, we agreed beforehand that the dog was totally my responsibility - food, exercise, vet bills and cleaning up after it. (As well as agreeing that anything the dog destroyed was my responsibility to replace.) When you look at things from this perspective before adding an animal to your home, it makes you damn certain that you are really getting a pet for the right reasons. Probably too late to try and work this kind of arrangement with your GF, besides the fact that she sounds like a crappy pet-owner anyway. Maybe try it with your next GF, because if you don't get tired of scooping shit all the time, you'll probably get tired of doing all the cooking and cleaning and realize she's taking advantage of you in more ways than one.

Re: “Dog park blues

OMG - kimi with the aggressive dog- WTF is wrong with you? If you have an aggressive dog, don't take it to a dog park, let along a park for service animals!!! Jesus H! How can you expect a visually impaired person to know that they should wait for you to leash your dog before entering the park that was created specifically for THEM? How would it even be reasonable to expect them to do so?! I know other people have already called you out for your blatant stupidity and ignorance, but I felt compelled to comment as well in the hopes that it might cause you to think twice about your behavior in the future. It is not up to HRM to provide a fully fenced area for you and your dog to exercise. Even if there was a beautiful, large, fully enclosed property outside your door, it would be used by multiple dogs, so what good would that be? I'm speaking from experience, that when you own an aggressive dog, you lose a lot of the privileges and options available to "social" dogs. Get a clue, or it will be your dog that suffers.

Re: “Boy-crazy bestie is bonkers

Your friend might be better served if you actually explained why you were avoiding her, instead of just, you know, avoiding her. It seems like this boy issue - too much, too fast - is a pretty obvious pattern to everyone but her. Also, just going out on a limb here, but if all she ever talks to you about are the guys she is sleeping with or obsessing over, she might have a bit of a void in her life in terms of hobbies, interests or even additional female friends that she can vent to. Thus, she probably doesn't value herself all that much, hence the reason she sleeps with any guy who shows an interest and then wonders why she's not finding "mister right". It's probably a hard conversation to initiate, but if you actually value her as a friend or person, you might be able to open her eyes with a little honest observation, and then, who knows, maybe she will get off the man-wagon and expand her horizons, thus making her a better friend. Win/win!
