So, I had some time alone today with my 5 year old...and we went down to Lake Huron to hunt sea glass (found 51 pieces!!) and I took the dogs with me. I have an Australian Shepherd and a Doberman...both of home look extremely aggressive but are not only sweet, well behaved dogs, but also well trained. I had them both on leashes, and when we got there...I ran into a gal that I work with who has three pitbulls, two adults and one puppy. She had one adult and the pup with her, and she was walking them around the loop at the park. We got to talking, and this woman marched up to us and said that she "Didn't appreciate us bringing such dangerous animals out in public when there were little kids around that could get hurt." Normally, I'd verbally bitch slap this woman into the cosmos but I didn't. I told her that the dogs were all leashed, not barking, growling, or looking at any other person. In fact they were minding their own business....like she should. She huffed and puffed and walked off...the end. Not so much. SHE CALLED THE POLICE and said we were letting aggressive dogs run wild at a park. The Animal Control came and everything. Took about 15 seconds for the officer to see what he had on his hands, and asked us to just put the dogs away or leave, in order to keep the peace. I told him that I would not. My dogs were being no bother, and I was following all posted rules about dogs...they were leashed, under control and I was cleaning up all messes. It really miffs me because if I had a cocker spaniel and was letting it run off it's leash and do whatever...nobody would give a crap. I guess it's just the price of ownership of a breed most people have already declared dangerous. Any other Rogues have a dog that gets a bad rap?
