A Need to Vent

Two things I need to publicly vent about because one day it will ruin things for all of us.


  1. Why can't people clean up after their dogs????????? I have a lab and I always carry bags with me when I walk her. Generally I have her go on our own spot before the walk, but sometimes I need that bag during the walk. I ALWAYS see remains lying on the ground from other dogs. If some folks are too good to clean up after their dogs then maybe they should reconsider bringing their dogs camping with them. The campground employees are not responsible to clean up after you.
  2. Why can't people follow the simple rule that their dog must be on a leash any time that dog is outside. I can't tell you how many times I see a dog running loose because "they are so well trained they do not need to be on a leash". I'm sure when someone walking their dog passes by someday, and gets attacked that will be very reassuring.


Sorry, but I needed to say that.

I agree. It's part of the responsibility of owning a pet. Once while walking my dog with my friend and his dogs he told me I should let my dog off his leash so he could have fun, I declined, five minutes later we were removing porcupine quills from the nose of his dog........fun?

We Agree! Yeah!

Concerning your point #1, my wife carries lots of extra bags, and will GLADLY give them out when the folks that are missing them, obviously need one .

As for your point #2, while hiking this summer, we came around a narrow corner on the trail to find an elderly gent laying on the ground in obvious distress. A pair of ladies had been "walking" their large dogs without leashes, and the dogs had surprised the elderly man and jumped on him, in a playful manner, but still knocking him to the ground causing bodily injury. Could it lead to criminal charges? Maybe, probably not. Some fines for breaking the leash law. But civil charges? YOU BET.

You cannot teach common sense. Hopefully, your thread may just enlighten some folks to these concerns.

1. This is so true! I usually find the mess by stepping in it...which I just
love. it takes all of one second to clean up after your baby....

2. Even though I own dogs, I am scared of ones I do not know because I
was attacked when I was a child. Again....it only take a second for them
to get away or get hit or something unexpected to scare them and for
them to react badly.

I cannot FATHOM the trouble I would be in with the DW if our pup got away while I was walking him
I may as well just keep walking ..... away

I too am stunned by people that let them run...
OR just walk up to our dog without announcing themselves and their dogs!

I'll add #3 ... Why can't people understand that I do not care to have my personal space/site invaded by a dog where the owner says ... " he/she just wants to say hi! "?

Can I add also...extra long leashes that the dog (not purposely) wraps around and trips someone? I guess everyone has their own theory of what is acceptable or considerate.

It seems to me the most inconsiderate types are the ones who Have the ill trained dogs as well. I once was photographing a group of coyotes and a guy let his dog run loose, and I warned him of the coyotes. He was positive his one dog could handle them. What a moron.

Gawd! How timely, went out to mow yesterday and there was a pile next to the mailbox bigger than I could leave. It's a busy road so the dog was surely leashed. Dogs will be Dogs, People can be Pigs.

Just the other day I stopped in a rest area on hwy 99 in central ca. I was admiring a beautiful motorhome, the door opens, a woman runs her dog to the grass without a leash, dog does his business, she runs him back in, they drive off.

Our dog was attacked by one of those unleashed dogs that would never hurt anything last November at a KOA in NC. Why people think their dog will never bother anything is beyond me. Our little shih tzu would not hurt anyone. Is always on a leash. After being attacked by a full size Labrador she looks for protection from wife or me. I called the police and filed a complaint with KOA. Police came and had a talk with owner. KOA did nothing.

I love the owners of unleashed dogs who say "Don't worry, he/she is friendly" when the dog runs up to mine while we're walking. Sometimes I don't have time to respond that "Mine is NOT friendly"

How many of you do like my wife and I do by picking up what others have left? I pick up after my dog and I also pick up after others' dogs. I know it really isn't my responsibility, but I feel it is the right thing to do so that one day all campgrounds don't ban dogs. Wouldn't that be a shame? I have yet to read where somebody else does what my wife and I do -- I just read where everybody whines about it.
