Why do Boxers Attract Stupid Owners? (RANT)
I was at the park playing fetch with Ozzy when a woman walked by with her boxer.
Ozzy started making an advance toward him, but I immediately called him off. The moment I commanded him, he returned to me.
The boxer started going nuts and slipped out of his collar, but the woman managed to keep him in place.
Normally, I would apologize for the inconvenience, but before I had the chance, she started screaming, "WHY ISN'T YOUR expletive DOG ON A LEASH?!"
Um. Because he listens... maybe?
I don't know how many of you know, but I have bipolar depression, and I'm not currently on medication for it. (I was actually on the phone making an appointment to get back on my meds).
That's relevant, because I can't always control my anger, and this was one of those times. When she started yelling, it instantly threw me into a rage.
I told her to She said something about what I would do if another dog ripped into Ozzy, because he 'obviously doesn't listen.'
Even though MY dog was under my complete control and her dog was going nuts trying to get at Ozzy.
I told her that if her dog DID rip into Ozzy if he wasn't under my control, I fully understand it would have been 100% MY fault.
To add insult to injury, I asked her how many champion sport titles and Petsmart job offers her dog had received. I made Ozzy start weaving through my legs after she got her dog restrained.
I don't need you guys to tell me I could have handled it better. I don't need you guys to tell me that the incident was essentially my fault. I know that. But I went into a rage, which literally blinds me with anger and clouds my judgement.
I have only EVER had issues with boxers and their owners. Around here, they seem to attract the most idiotic dog owners.
