Ok, so now I am one of THOSE owners. Oops!
Well, as it was Sunday, after the Browns won, I took the kids and Karma, my 7 month old pup to the park. There was some fall festival going which I did not know about, so I parked far away, and went into the park through one side, instead of over the bridge -- yeah, this actually does matter. Normally when I bring a dog, we walk with the dog to Calvin Park, but the kids wanted to go to the Purple Dinasour Park -- their name for it, and we have to drive to that one.
Anyway, before getting to the park we were stopped by people wanting to pet her, and once we were in, she saw a little dachsund that she was dying to meet, but I wasn't so we didn't. Anyhow, I let a few kids pet her, and we sat at a picnic table just being near the craziness, without being submersed in it. The girls played some, and stayed with the dog some.
Everything went fine, and soon it was time to take the girls home and finish the dinner. We went over the bridge and the younger one points at the rules where it clearly states, "No Dogs." Uhg! What a dumb rule, but I shouldn't have broken it anyway. It just didn't occur to me. I see dogs all the time at Calvin Park, and there are those signs that say something to the effect that if you do not clean up after your mutt, then we will dispatch you to the Fiery Pitt post haste.
Oh well, everyone there now thinks I am a jerk.
