I love (most) dogs, but I am of the firm belief that they are not my kids or friends. I know that they are not only animals capable of rational thought, but they need the structure of a pack to perform and behave. And they also knew they were at the bottom of the pecking order of the pack which is why my 95 lbs wife would control dogs of equal or bigger weight than hers.
But this is the crap that makes dog owners look like the idiots they are. Apparently, they missed the Park’s instructions on pets.
If my dogs were outside our property, they were ALWAYS on a very strong leash and in full control. This “wondering around nature” bull gets people and animals killed.
Puppy here was damned lucky.
