Nice to know I am the one being ridiculed, and just to add i was not the one who posted that i kicked a dog! yes I DID tell the kids to take the dog BEFORE they stated where the dog lived, they were both younger than five, i thought it belonged to them as they were calling it. i was not going to ask (after knowing it did not bleing to them) two very small boys to come take this dog, i said american staffy/pitbull looking thing, because this is eactly what it looked like, just a bit big which is why i added maybe a mastiff mixed in. I wont be ridiculed on this. I was doing the right thing, my dog was on a lead and it was a terrible experience, yes it appeared to be friendly, but it annoyed the **** out of me and this dog should be more properly contained as to not get out. Yes i walk this way every day, does not mean that the dog, if getting out all the time, only gets out at this particular time every day. I am not the irresponsible one. their NEIGHBOUR of whom i assume they WOULD know should be telling them what a nuisance their dog is or was on this particular day. I take care of my own dog, i wont be responsible for others. ridicule me all you want.
