A note to dog owners:
I really love dogs. I even call them doggies, but I really DON’T like being lunged at by strange dogs.
So, Dear Dog(gie) Owners,
If your precious Pookie decides to lunge at a stranger and bark as they pass by, please just apologize.
I don’t want to hear about how I startled your dog by walking by. I’M NOT A HEARD OF ELEPHANTS OR A MOTORBIKE. I should be able to walk down a sidewalk. I know this is hard to hear but it’s not actually my fault. It’s your dog’s fault. No scratch that, it’s probably your fault.
So when this unfortunate incident happens- please just apologize and deal with your dog.
PS- I am writing this because this morning when this happened to me i just yelled ”jesus christ!” and kept walking away while dog owner lady was trying to explain to me how i had just scared her dog and how it was ok because we just scared each other- and i honestly feel bad for the way i handled the situation. i should have talked with her but i was too shaken…
oh also, why must you leave your dog poo in little plastic bags everywhere? IT’S A FUCKING PLASTIC BAG. That shit will be there forever. I mean- thanks for not leaving it there for me to step in, but just put it in the garbage, man.
