Keep your FING dog on a leash or in fenced in! Apparently anyone who thinks a dog should be leashed is overreacting.

Dezzy was out "walking" the dog. (she walks three houses one way and one the other way from our house. she is 8) when a friggin husky comes up! Rosie tries to protect her (a 5 month old cocker spaniel)! THANK GOD I got to them before ether of them got hurt! Husky ran away from me. I hate morons who don't care for their animals!


this is how populated it is where I live. That large patch of green is the park.

I agree.

 I had a farmer's wife threaten to shoot me because I maced their dog twice...both times after it chased me down the PUBLIC road where I was running.

 Huskies are notorious escape artists. Its possible the owner doesn't know it found an escape. Either way the owner needs to fix the problem.

if my dog went after someone and ended up hurt or dead because of it I would NOT blame that person.

 That's kinda sad. I hope the poor dog gets a responsible owner before something tragic happens

yep. I personaly think that the first time no fine then after each time found out about should be more and more money to get the dog back.

My mom always has this battle when she's out walking on trails. People are ALWAYS making a big stink and picking their dogs up or ushering them into their vehicles when my mom's dog comes running up to sniff and play. It's pretty sad. If she felt her dog was going to hurt another one, she'd have it on a leash, obviously.

I've had that with my purebread American Couch Dog, too. He's deaf, half blind, obese, and nearly dead. He doesn't even notice other dogs or people on the trails. But the moment we encounter another person, they immediately get defensive and huffy, assuming he's going to attack them because he looks like a pit bull.

*Shrug* I think people need to stop flipping out over small stuff.

First off WE ARE NOT IN THE COUNTRY. We were in our nehborhood IN THE CITY with houses close together. SECOND The owner was NO WHERE in sight. THIRD the dog tried to attack my daughter. My cocker protected her. FOURTH there are leash LAWS for a reason. FIFTH we are next to a HUGE park with LOTS of kids and all local baseball games are held there.
