    So very touching!! I absolutely love this poem!! This is the exact reason I dont take Aston to dog parks. He is content going for walks down by the pond or down the street. just enough to make him squint in the sunlight and have the fresh air in his nose! GREAT post!!
     
  5. Wow, Pretty disturbing Story! I use to love the idea of taking my pup to the park! only to ware him out not to socialize him though. i bring him to my In laws cause they have 2 dog's and he loves them. I Use to only bring him in if there is no one there and i mean No 1. I Love my dog to much for something like that to happen :(

    last time i was at the park there was no one there so i took the leash off and started throwing the ball back and forth with him, within a blink of n eye there had to be about 15 dogs coming in. so i kept my dog on a leash, every single person that was there walked up to me and asked, are u new here ? i said yes'' they were like well take the leash off and let him Run.

    My heart was throbbing the hole time. and sure enough not every dog in there was enjoying my dog's company. but there was no fight's, so no matter how good ur dog is with others, Some thing will probably happen! So Now i just do not go there any more! I Love my Pup to much to let something like that Happen. i would die before i let some one take him from me.

    Awesome Thread Tho, Thanks For Sharing.

    Sounds like you have a great dog! A similar story happened to mine, we went to a different park than usual. They had 2 areas, one for larger dogs, one for the little fellas. The large dog area was empty so we went i and started playing fetch. Well, the little dog kennel had these two little fur balls, no bigger than kittens. And they were able to get under the fence! They chased Rogers all over the park, jumping on his back, yapping away. They had a blast for about 20 minutes. Then a man showed up with a boxer and told us his dog has been acting aggressively lately before he came in. So we all left. I would never go back, because if those little guys can get under the fence, that's a sign of poor maintenance. But it sure was funny watching those little guys chase my guy all over the park.

    If you're gonna cuss, cuss for chrisssakes. Why say "fucking" in one line, and "freaking" in the next? Just go all out. We get it, you're right, we're wrong, and that's all there is to it.

    Oh, and the poem was alright, but it aint exactly Walt Whitman.

    OMG, this literally brought tears to my eyes! No joke! Its so crazy because I was just told a couple of days ago by quite a few people on here that I shouldn't be taking Meli to the dog park because of a couple of incidences that happened (none that she started). I took all their advise to heart and won't be taking her anymore. I was always one of those people that thought, "My dog isn't like that" but people brought to my attention that I shouldn't even put her in the situation and take that chance because of someone's ill-mannered dog.

    Wouldn't even consider taking mine to a dog park. Have enough trouble waking in my neighborhood and everyone who thinks an electric fence will keep their aggressive dogs from coming after mine.

    Aww.. What a sad poem. It's really sad that even if your dog has good intentions or is the innocent one it could still cost them their lives. It really isn't fair but it's something everyone should be aware of. Thanks for sharing.

    Almost made me cry. I have never taken either of my babies to a dog park because I have always been worried about that sort of thing happening and I for sure never will now!!

    Yeah, not a good idea to take these types of dogs to dog parks. I have had back to back Pitbulls, a rednose and now a bluenose. Both have been socialized about as good as I can possibly do so; it just takes that one time, one simple quick moment and all of sudden something is in a world of hurt. I have seen it happen right in front of me.
    And it is not that easy to break up such a fight either (unlike the dog whisperer). Im constantly amazed by the sheer strength of these dogs...and it applies perfectly in a tussle with another dog. Its not worth taking the dog and risking a chance in losing it while at the dog parks although I Know it looks like so much fun.

    I am terribly sorry to hear about your dog there...wow.
     
  19. Our dog park has two sides. A large dog area and a small dog. Everyone uses the small dog area because it's much larger (for some reason). Sometimes ill take my pup to the empty side and leave if someone comes in. Mostly we play in my yard or will use empty tennis courts at the regular park we walk through. My dog is a rescue who had a third degree burn down his back so I avoided bigger dogs so they couldn't hurt him since they could reach his burn, but even now that it's healed, I still wouldn't take him to the side with other dogs. I know he would be blamed for anything that might happen. I sometimes have a friend bring her Bassett hound, so she still gets familiar with other dogs that I know well and we can watch carefully.
