Thread: Grrrr I Hate Irresponsible Dog Owners.

    CL - I don't think any breeds should be named when people write these sort of threads unless they are 100% sure of the breed.

    Poodles are not my breed though so I probably wouldn't jump in if that was the case. It also differs as poodles don't or rarely get misidentified in attack cases and are in no danger from BSL.

    Anyways don't think there is any point rehashing that part of the conversation.

    Everyone said what they thought and I guess Dan can take it on board or not.

    Yep agreed, although I do get angry when my poodles get misidentified as labradoodles but that's a whole other chapter

    I don't want to add to this but I had another experience with a roaming dog.
    Our dogs are alway behind the fence and only ever got out to the front when we were with them.
    Then for some reason we started to get these messages left by a dog on our front lawn. Doing the right thing I cleaned it up but the next day there was another message.
    So I decided to sit by our bedroom window and see who ever this dog was.
    I only had to wait a short time when this old Heeler Cross came along and left the message again.
    So I watched it walk away and then followed it.
    The dog actually live a couple of houses up from ours but on the other side of the back ally.
    So I decided to actually write them a message telling them that I am so sick of cleaning up after their dog as well as cleaning up after our own dogs which left thier messages in our own back yard.
    Well the written note never worked. So then next time it came I wrote down the time and then rang the council and complained about it.
    They told me they would get on to it.
    And low and behold it stopped for a bout a week then it began to happen again.
    So I called the council again and this time the lady was given a fine and she shipped her dog off the her father, who owned a farm.
    I know that this happened as a lady up the street knew them and she told me this happen. That was the end of these dirty messages.

    Moral of the story is I keep my backyard clean of droppings and why should I have to do the front while my dogs never do anything there.

    Excellent thread.

    I am going to sick by my original post that you cant assume an owner is irresponsible because a dog has escaped. I had an escaper and i is extremely frustrating when you are doing everything you can to keep your dog on the property and they still get off...or when you only find out your dog is escaping because the pound guy finally manages to chase him home (his is how we fund out he was an escaper).

    I agree, it does suck having strange dogs run up during a walk. If that happened to me while walking my dogs there would be a fight I imagine.

    No problems here with "identifyig a breed". I read it as a description of the type f look it had, not an actual breed identification.

    Also, I notice oyu stated that people with entire dogs are irresponsible. My male is entire, there is no reason for him to be desexed IMO, that doesnt make me irresponsible.

    Dan4nas, I like yur posts. I think you can be quite funny but I do think you have a tendency to get a bit upset with others and perhaps take what they are saying personally.

    Lala - Angela said people could see having entire dogs as being irresponsible but that she doesn't and then also pointed out she has an entire dog.
    She was just saying some people see entire dogs as irresponsible.

    Actually my point was more that having an entire animal does not make a person irresponsible. To add to that though, having an entire animal and letting it breed over and over and over again, every season or with every entire female it comes across is irresponsible.

    But if the post had have said "there was this poodle that was harassing me" there wouldn't have been a second thought.

    I don't take a spare lead with me when I walk my dog. If I see a stray dog wandering the streets I am very cautious. How do you know that dog is going to be friendly?
    Yeah sure it might look nice and be wagging its tail chasing after you but if you go to put a lead on it, who's to say it won't bite?
    A friend of mine has a Husky, nice as pie... until you touch his collar.

    I would always just call the council or pound straight away to pick up the dog, and if possible try to confine the dog... ie: if it was in my yard when I came home I would shut the gate so it couldn't run back to the street.
    Totally agree with what you have said.

    However, I can well understand the sensitivity surrounding identifying a breed as a PB. They are afterall a very much maligned breed and have been for some time. Some of which is deserved, but most of it isn't.

    Anyway, back to the debate - dan, don't leave. That's my role on this forum - to be the big tanty thrower and leave. Take a break and come back. I can understand you feel you are under attack and I agree that you are but I also agree that you need to be careful with wording sometimes.

    Di posted a fabulous post some time ago in a thread about how words are often misconstrued and intention cofnused or taken out of context and i believe that is what has happened here on both sides.

    Wow, that was some search, but it was successful.

    Di, I hope you don't mind me adding your quote here but I think it is appropriate;

    The main problem, as I see it is that type, as a communication medium is a very flat and restricted one. No body language or voice inflections are there so people can judge intent of words. Those with a clipped curt way of speaking, and translating that to type can come across as aggressive where maybe it is not meant to. Others may post more words in an effort to try and get around this type problem.

    Apart from obvious times when people are not getting on, I feel that the typed medium is the real culprit along with how a person is actually feeling in themselves on the day which may or may not distort their perception of words, on both sides.

    Everytime I see this thread in new posts I cringe honestly..

    Im sure people have noticed that Dan has not come back "To look at who replies"

    Point is... If I seen a dog that looked like a Bulldog I would say it looked like a bulldog, If i seen a dog that looked like a Rotty I would say it looked like a rotty and If i seen a dog that looked like a pitty I would say it looked like a pitty.

    Yes no other dogs are facing being banned but they are not the only dog with a bad reputation!

    My passion subject in life is breastfeeding, sometimes I come accross over the top and actually abusive when I honestly dont mean to. It just I feel so strongly about it!

    K & P and Ang Honestly I think this is what happens to you sometimes. You dont realise it, you dont mean it but it happens.
