Quoting Liss ♥:" So I was walking my dog earlier on the sidewalk like EVERYONE and like always I had a bag to pick up ... [snip!] ... that? I never take my dog out so I don't know what's her problem, maybe I'm overreacting but the way she said it got me so mad!"
Hey, I don't blame you. My dog just recently passed but, people used to give me smurf all the time...He was a pitbull mix, so everyone is 'on edge' about him anyway. Like, people would grab their dogs leashes tighter, and smurf like that. My dog had an amazing temperament. He NEVER barked at other dogs, not once did he see a dog and start barking..he just did his thing.
I actually got into something like you had with a woman up the street (a little different) but, she would do what I mentioned earlier, grab her dog's leash and go, "HURRY COME ON!" and walk the other way..but, I ALWAYS pick up after my dog. This lady comes down to my yard EVERY DAY with her little yappy dog that never shuts up and lets it smurf in my yard and doesn't pick it up. One day she was right outside my house and I took my dog out and she got real snippy with me and said, "Can't you wait until we're up the street." I said, "THIS IS MY SmUrfING HOUSE AND MY SmUrfING YARD! No, I won't wait..why don't you take your dog and let him smurf in your yard? You bring him down here and he smurfs in my grass and you just leave it there, if I see it again I'm picking it up and putting it on your doorstep."
I was also pregnant and angry.
