TLDR:watch your dogs at the fucking dog parks. It is your responsibility as the dogs owner. 👌
Today I decided to pop down to an off leash dog park for my two puppers. Immediately once I stepped through the gate this huge beast of a dog was on me for my ball. The dog didn't have a collar or tags, and the owner was no where to be found the entire time. The dog jumped up on me repeatedly, almost knocking me down. As I'm looking for the owner the dog grabs my chuckit and starts pulling. I tried to pull away and as I did he bit 3 of my fingers, breaking 1 nail 😒
I released and the dog ran off with my ball, which he destroyed in 5 minutes. I now I have 4 people helping me trying to look for the dogs owner. A woman pointed out a man saying how they both looked out of place, and she was right. He was sitting alone on a bench hunched over looking dirty with multiple sweaters on and hoodies up. Probably in his 40s & scruffy faced. I approached the man and asked if he knew the dog, he said it was his dog and he knew the dog was a "ball thief". I told him he needed to be watching his dog, since for the past 20 minutes I was dealing with a dog almost the damn size of myself while calling for the owner. He replied "it's an off leash dog park. He got your ball? I can't get it back. Not my problem" to which I responded, how as a dog owner it IS your responsibility.
I would have taken a picture of the man but wouldn't be surprised if he tried to retaliate so I went home early. 🙃
I don't understand how someone could feel so entitled? Like your dog is fucking huge and misbehaving and you're not even in sight??? I'm incredibly lucky the dog didn't show interest in my min pin because he could have eaten him and the owner wouldn't have even seen. !! If you managed to read all of that then you are awesome.
Also, just watch your damn dogs. Please. For the sake of other human beings and dogs.
