I work from home, and every school day I take my GSD Lena with me, on leash, to meet my kindergartner's bus. It's just a short distance, but of course Lena likes to go with me! and the kids on the bus enjoy looking out the window at her-- some wave, which is cute.
The problem is that someone in the neighborhood has a chihuahua that is allowed to roam free, and is a holy terror. This little creature, on many days, comes and barks its little head off, trying to "chase" Lena down the street. Lena is a good dog, but she's still a dog and after a while she's had enough and tugs hard at the leash in this dog's direction. I'm having to pull hard on her to get her back in a heel while this little yapper follows us down the road.
It just really annoys me that these people are so irresponsible with their dog. I am not 100% sure who the dog belongs to. I have narrowed it down to a couple of houses.
Like most places, my county does have a leash law. Am I being a total bi-otch if I go knocking on doors until I find who owns this animal and inform them that I've had enough? I don't think it's too much to ask that I am able to walk my leashed, trained dog in peace.
