Sorry, I'm really needing to vent.

I'm so confused, I posted a while back about dogs parks ack and got good feedback and agreed.

So I decided to take My 2 on a little nature/flower walk, Both are on leashes, We are enjoying the day/smells etc.....then what's there? a Pitbull and 2 other type dogs, I'm like arghhhhh hope when the none leash dogs do decide to approuch us it will be ok.......first 2 smaller dogs approuch, I'm think were are the leashes? *doh to late they are smelling my dogs greeting eachother nicely....all is ok, the Pitty decides that she/he is being left out, and approuches Charlie,starts to smell Charlie all is fine till charlie wants to smell he/she back, UH OHHHHH pitty goes on a rampage, *attack mode I pull charlie back tight on his leash, pitty is not giving up, standing infront of my 2 dogs blocking them, Pitty is growling barking saliva/ now charlie starts the protective mode bark (I said Charlie don't bother that dogs gonna eat you for breaky......what seemed like a long time/ which was not owner finally decided to grab the pitty calming it down. (charlies like ho-hum smelling around on the ground).....The owner goes dogs will be dogs.....I said cuse me........He said first mistake you made , you should of taken your dog off leash, I am Uhhh what come again? *confused now* He said that dogs will be dogs and should meet off their leads, specialy when there is a problem, I'm dumbfounded now, Hey buddy this is not a dog place, I'm thinking in My head....anyhow longer story short.......I'm finding it difficult dealing with certain owners, could you imagine if I would of took advice and takin charles of lead when the dog wanted to scrap...My dog had/has no chance. on a light note of this......Charlies brother normaly will try to protect Charlie but Rolo kept his mouth closed and tight during this encounter..:) odd

Makes you wonder what would have happened if it were a 2 year old toddler with her mother walking when they met the pit bull.

I still feel that dogs should be on leash in areas such as that. The dogs will be dogs comment by the owner doesn't cut it with me. It's a matter of taking responsibility for the actions of their pets-especially an animal such as a pit bull.

Here, Here! Our trainer always told us that WE MUST remain in control of our dog, even if that meant telling other owners/people that ITS NOT OKAY UNTIL I SAY SO
While practising in Pet Smart a little terrier nearly took out Winston. I repeatedly told the owner not to let it near him as he was training and must obey before he can greet. She of course was its okay. I discussed this with the trainer afterwards and she said it's unbelievable the amount of owners that come there and have no clue. Even little dogs can be dangerous to other dogs if not properly controlled.

He also had no business telling you your first mistake. I think he falls into that clueless category. Someday he'll be one of these owners that are ordered to have his dogs put down, something that doesn't have to happen if the owner has a clue.
So glad that pitbull didn't get to your dogs.

Don't let him get to you. Sometimes you just don't have a bag with you and need to leave the doggy doo at the park.

I also agree that dogs should be leashed in areas like that. Especially if the owner doesn't have complete vocal control of their dog. It drives me crazy when I'm walking through my neighborhood with my dogs leashed and someone's dog comes rushing out to the street barking it's head off. Glad you guys are okay.

excuses, excuses. that's all he offered you, just lame excuses.
truth is, he is the one resposible for the dogs poor behavior. on leash or off, a good dog is a dog dog, the end.

Now that's funny-I love the metaphor!
Yep, and with a little luck, jerks like that will step in it.

I hate people who tell us that we should let our dogs off the leash because THEIR dog is being a pest. Glad you are o.k.
