People are such JERKS

So I was walking Ozzy. Big deal. Whoo.

There's this guy in our neighborhood with a Weimereiner (sp?) and I already know he's a jerk. One time Aiden got out (Mom let him out on accident, oops), and he FLIPPED out. Saying we need to control our ******* dogs and it's people like us that shouldn't own dogs, blah blah blah.

I was going to play fetch with Ozzy, but he was there. So instead, I walked through and headed home. He said, "Great, a dressed up ankle biter." (Ozzy was in his jacket - it was cold out, I wish I took my jacket).

I'm fed up with people calling him an ankle biter. I walked up to him and said, "Excuse me? My 'ankle biter' is actually a POMERANIAN, and a well behaved one at that! So you can shut the h*** up and mind your own d*** business!" During this time, Ozzy sat right next to me, and his dog sat there waiting for him to throw the frisbee.

Then I walked away and he stood there dumbfounded. I think the way I'm dressed helped in my favor. Haha.

Not the best approach, but I'm sick of just 'ignoring' people who think they're better than everyone else. Kick in happy pills, kick in happy pills, kick in happy pills.....

Uh-oh, I think of little dogs as anklebiters too. I would have to be really annoyed with the dog to actually say it out loud where the person could hear me.

I have wash and wear dogs that can be out in any weather in their birthday suits. I understand that some breeds do not have the double coat that our breed has, and that their owners have to compensate if they want them to live in this climate. So, I try not to give any funny looks when I see a miniature dachsund or whatever in a sweater.
It was rude. He probably did not see it as rude. The next time you see him with his kid, say, "Great, a dressed up hoodlum."
I am now an older single female. I think that to view the world as a scarey place where everyone is out to get you, makes you a victim anyway.

I do not usually respond to rude comments because I consider the source and do not usually think they are worth my effort, but, I am NOT afraid of anyone. Sorry. Life is too short to walk around terrified of your own shadow.
