I am soooo angriy Much the same as the other thread 'incosiderate owners'. Just got back from taking Duke for a walk. We were on our way back from a long walk crossing a green on a nearby housing estate Duke obviously on a lead. i notice kids playing on the green they had 2 dogs with them, the kids can't have been any more than 7 or 8, I also notice a policeman chatting to someone in a car, nothing unusual in that. Then out of the blue one of the dogs comes hairing over to us, Duke does not like being taken by surprise by over excited off lead dogs, when he is on lead, this is perfectly understandable, not many do, and like any other dog greeted so rudely he will bite. I shout over to the kids 'hey who's dog is this'? No responce the dog has a lead trailing behind it. I grab the lead and the dog practically strangling Duke to stop him from having a pop. I shout to the officer, twice, 'excuse me excuse me' quite loadly no responce! I march over to the officer dog in tow, explain the dog is not under control in a public place, the road was yards away, The officer finds out whose dog it is and tells the kid to take it home, with that another dog belonging to the same kid starts harrassing Duke again the officer just tells the kid to take his dogs home. I ask him what he is going to do about this situation? eg speak to the parents, maybe ask them if they are aware of the dog law, something sensible like that, he responds no its all sorted now and goes back to talk to his mate!! OMG If I could swear on here this thread would be Bluuue!!!!!! If the Police won't inforce the laws what hope is there for the rest of us!!!
