i really can't stand some pet owners

- bring a female dog in heat to a public dog park which is only for fixed animals

- bring an aggressive dog which in this case sadly was a husky pup who attacked a pit who tried getting away.. and then blame it on the pit saying he started it. when in fact he was playing with my little girl with no issues until he came to stalk the pit.

- throw a small weirner dog into hip deep water.. and when the dog starts to go under from being tired dont go in to rescue her. and when the pit (same as above) goes and picks her up and brings her to shore. the owner says the dog is dangerous. when in fact once he put the dog down the pit walked away...

- then there are the rude people who hog the only pond and blame all the other dogs and owners for there dog not coming to them when called..

and the list goes on...just from one day at a dog park ... some people just really are so frustrating

I think some people buy dogs (and other animals), because they look cute and don't bother training them or learning about them. People like that really annoy me. And then there are people who just have no common-sense...

I hate it when people bring in aggressive dogs, then let them off the leash. We were sitting at the table watching Sam run around and play, when these two guys brought this HUGE dog in. He immediately started barking and growling and pulling on his leash. We had to grab Sam and put him on his leash and have him basically in our lap while the two guys let the dangerous dog run around. Meanwhile, they were playing football. What's the point of going to the dog park if your dog just sits in your lap?

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

This is why I don't take my dogs to public parks. Too many stupid, inconsiderate people in one place.

Try working in veterinary medicine. How about the type that walks in with a dirty/filty (skin in bad shape do to neglect) black lab who has an ear that is filled up like a water balloon full of blood/serum. Ask how long this dog has had this problem, and they say oh it just happened over night. When in fact in this particular case, this type of fluid had to have days (if not a week) to fill up like this. Then after some surgery and drainage put in it, they come in later in the week with another dog that had something wrong with it - when inquiring about how the dog with the ear problem was doing, they say

oh I shot him - I could tell he was just going to cost me too much money.

And the list goes on.............

yeah I saw some horror stories at a vet clinic too, clippityclop - I was working reception at a clinic that had a groomer working in the back. Some people brought in a persian cat "just for a bath" and it had matted so badly there were maggots on its skin. When confronted they claimed they had no idea that the cat had any matts at all, then left without paying or claiming the cat. A fellow receptionist adopted him.

My stories at the dog park are similar. We have a giant German shepherd who is sweet as pie until someone becomes mean to her. Then some lady's spoiled brat of a dog starts to harass her she does to to get away but eventally she does show her teeth (growl, I have never seen her ever bite, maybe nip.) . Then they start calling bloody murder because she's a bigger dog. Like the pit how is it fair you can have these awful little dogs everywhere but when you have a big dog defending itself it's suddenly a danger?
