Do you get a lot of them? We do , they are easy to spot, they have the wrong footwear , thinking that as it hasnt rained for two days the woods will be dry so they come out in trainers or worse, sandels ! So then they try to pick their way round the woods avoiding the muddy bits. Their dogs are totally out of control working off all the pent up energy they havent been able to get rid of all winter and you can hear the owners screaming because their nice trainers/sandels are covered in mud or theyve stepped in somthing squishy or they are screaming at the dog who is bouncing around like a stray rocket crashing into everyone, causing fights being a general pain. I want to shout at them ..Just because its cold or wet doesnt mean your dog doesnt need to walk.. Having a dog means getting wet and or muddy because rain or shine they need to get out. There are so many that we see in spring/summer but come winter they vanish. Sometimes pups youve see all summer vanish never to be seen again because the reality of having a dog in winter is too much for some to bear. Although I love springtime I dread the fair weather walkers.
