Default Backpack abuse: stupidity at its best (moved from gen info to stories)

While I was jogging/walking with my pup, who was wearing his backpack, a lady comes up to me telling me I'm abusing him. She asks me why I'm "forcing" him to wear a backpack, and that it's "inhumane". She says, "Why are you treating your dog this way? It's abuse." And then she walks off shaking HER head. Unbelievable.

Mind you, I live downtown, and I'm confronted by crazy people everyday, but this one takes the cake.

I've had people give me dirty looks and ask me why he's muzzled when we're using his Gentle Leader/Halti, but really this "backpack abuse" is by far the best one yet.

Anyone else have any funny stories??
