Wow! You get away with _that_? I have seen more than one episode where if somebody so much as touched another person's dog to restrain, there was a row. Along the lines of "How DARE you?" Mind you they are rare. I have seen them because I used to frequent a dog park that at times could literally have hundreds of free dogs....the owners were far more trouble than the dogs in most cases ....that and the bolshier bike riders, who were allowed to "share" the paths with us at 30-40KPH.
