Do you tie your dogs up and leave him or her outside?

I was wondering how many people leave their dog tied up outside.
We never tied Molly up outside once! While we are at work she is in the house and when we are home she stays with us 100% of the time.

my answer is no

Wolfie gets tied up on a trolley run for an hour in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. I go in the house, but I am forever checking on him the whole time he is out there. He loves it. He runs around, makes his log creations, barks at the wild things in the woods, and sometimes he naps. He is in the house or out with me the rest of the day.

our dog is an inside, lay on the sofa,
lay on his bed our bed dog. i tied him
outside once. we went to a party and there
was 6 dogs there running around having fun.
when we first arrived one of the dogs growled
and barked at our dog. in order to avoid a conflict
i leashed Loki and stayed outside with him. when i came
inside to get something to eat i tied him outside. then
i sat on a deck over looking him. when i came from inside
with my food the dog that growled at Loki was licking his face.
i went downstairs and untied him. all of the dogs ran around having fun.
there was a cat there. the cat was walking around. some of the
dogs including mine gave him an occassional lick. the cat wasn't
bothered by the dogs and the dogs weren't bothered by the cat.

I have never tied out my dogs, we have a fenced in acre for them. I don't know how they'd act if they were ever tied out without me with them.
I have had Karlo tethered during training and left him while others with their dogs walked by. He wasn't crazy, just sat there looking towards the area I walked away. If I just left him alone with no one around, I think he would have gotten anxious.

Our yard is completely fenced and my dogs are too big to worry about them getting through anything (weak spot in gate) but they also aren't escape artists, however my mother's beagle basset cross, he could get out of anything, so he was on a long chain while outside in a fenced yard. Never for long, long enough to get floors washed or something.

I've never tied a dog out and never will. My dogs are brought inside the house if one of us is not there to supervise. Safer, and if they bark at passers by it won't be heard as well by our neighbors.

Also have a fenced in yard, but I attempted to tie my dog out once and it was a disaster. We were camping and my fiance wanted me to try golfing for the first time since he's pretty into golfing. There was no way we could keep Chrono in the tent because he would destroy it and break out in a second, and we couldn't bring him to the golf course, so we tied him out. After about an hour of being chewed by mosquitoes and not even being able to hit the ball 80% of the time, I quit halfway and we went back to the campsite. Even though he was on a 20 foot tie out, Chrono was right against the tree we tied him to because the tie out had become completely wrapped all around his leg. I have no idea how people are able to leave their dogs tied out all day, we were only gone for an hour and he couldn't even move when we got back he got tangled up so badly.
