    Default Pointless Vent...

    I was just at the dog beach and there was this silly red Dobe there. It was careening around the place chasing after dogs, juuuust avoiding collisions... It came up to Tay a few times and she just ignored it but then it actually bowled into her! She snarled after it...

    I saw it harrassing a poor little Boston. The owner put her on the lead at one point but that just made her bark and lunge at other dogs so she went off the lead again.

    Dumb dog had no sense of doggy etiquette (well, that's my take on it anyway). Silly thing deserves a bite, show it that that behaviour's not acceptable. I have the feeling if it annoyed Taya again she would have gone for it . She doesn't appreciate behaviour like that

    On a lighter note I saw a beautiful GSD...

    That would've being so annoying! Yes, I think my friends lab has no dog etiquette, ALWAYS in Dora's face. Lets hope that dog gets a clue before Tay bites him

    Hey Loren,

    The owner deserves a bite, I'll agree with that one.

    What is it with dog owners these days? No idea, or they just don't care? Or I'm just getting more jaded?

    People seem to not take responsibility for their dogs. But then again a lot of people don't take responsibility for their skin kids either!
    It sure sucks for everyone else.

    Must be something in the water that is making people lose all commonsense.

    I would never have a dobe off lead, the owner sounds stupid even with the lead on she couldn't control the dog.

    100% Agreed. Then again, the dog would probably be the one who pays for that

    Yup! And I voice my disapproval of it loudly in the middle of shopping centres much to some 'mothers' dismay

    Actually a dobe has the potential to be an incredible dog. They are gorgeous, sooky, friendly and amazingly gentle when they are raised correctly - same as any other dog. Seeing a dobe in full controlled drive doing an obedience trial is, IMO, breathtaking. Same with a shepherd or a rottie!

    Completely agree!! It irritates me when people get dogs and don't train them then think they're fantastic.

    'Don't you love Boris? Isn't he gorgeous?'
    '...I might warm up to him after he stops trying to kill me'.

    Do you honestly think you are making the "Mother" (as you call them) feel any better by you loudly objecting to THEIR kids behaviour?!? I can't see it is ANY of your business quite frankly!

    I dare anybody "to have a go" at me if one of my children chucked a hissy fit at a shopping centre...not that they actually did.

    My first question would be...do you have any kids? If they said no...I would say...come back when you do, because frankly you haven't got a clue! I will bet you...the "Mothers" who have had or have young children will be standing there...feeling sympathetic and nodding...thinking...oh I am glad it wasn't me today!

    So next time you hear a child screaming...take a deep breath and consider...there might be a reason for that hissy fit other than that kid just being a little sh!t.
    Gees, totally agree on that one, could be autism, any reason and all of them none of anyone elses business. One of my sons was a tantrum thrower and I dealt with them as it was thought to do so in that time. Anyone butting in, giving their uneducated opinion would be severely told.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I have to admit that sometimes I get annoyed when there are kids running around carrying on, but I'm not talking about toddlers screaming, more the older kids that decide the supermarket aisles are a good place for a game of tag. A few months ago an elderly woman got knocked over in front of me when some kids (one maybe 4, one maybe 6) ran smack bang into her, too busy laughing and running and not looking where they were going. "Mum" was standing gossiping to a mate. I rushed over to help the lady up (luckily she was okay), but a few people ended up having a go at the mother, she didn't even ask the lady if she was okay. Grrrrrr.

    But toddler tantrums....ohhh I developed a LOT of sympathy for the mums after visiting my best friend and her then "terrible twos" son. Went to the shopping centre, he wanted lollies, he wasn't getting them...next thing he flings himself on the ground and screams and kicks! My friend who is easily embarrassed just had to sit there waiting for him to finish, enduring dirty looks etc. Finally she just said okay we're going are you coming and walked off...we got about 10 feet away and son looked up, realised we were leaving and next thing he's running after us! After that little episode I am a lot more tolerant....although I still make a run for it if there's lots of screaming!
