Maze 253: If you’re a dog owner I would suggest skipping todays post! So this morning my sons are walking to school and a dog runs up to them and jumps up on my middle son trying to be playful. My son has been attacked by dogs on three separate occasions and is scared of them.
So he throws his hands in the air scared and was whining. The owner comes up to him and says how the dog is nice and mocked my sons gestures on how he shouldn’t react that way. So just so your all caught up I wasn’t there a neighbor witnessed this and told us. (If I was there this would more than likely have been my first day missing the maze.)
That neighbor followed the guy home and reported him to animal control and then let us know the situation. I thank her! So tonight I will actually be going to the guys house to speak with him about the situation. Although he was correct in how to handle stray dogs he’s a f**king a**hole for doing it. Reason 1: 9-year-old kid is scared of your dog put him on the leash and leave the kids alone. Reason 2: He doesn’t know my sons history at all he just assumes as the majority of dog owners in Denver seem to think that everyone likes dogs. Reason 3: It’s the law! In Denver dogs must be on a leash with the exception in a dog park.
I have reached my limit with this f**king dogs. Last summer a dog ran up on my middle and youngest and I had to tackle it before it got to my sons. As my 3 year old screamed in fear the dumbass owner of the dog said please don’t beat up her dog. As I asked her where was her leash she pointed off in the distance. As I reminded her of the law she told me to kiss her a**. Not sorry to my screaming 3-year-old but kiss her a**. When the reality of the situation is that I could have killed her dog and it would have been her fault because she didn’t use the leash.
Its mind-blowing how out of control dog owners have gotten where I live. They let their dogs sh*t everywhere in a park where kids play, no leash, they let their dogs run up to strangers jumping and sniffing them. And the first thing out of their mouths is that the dog is like their child. Well be a parent then. Clean up the shit after your kids. Don’t let your child run up to strangers and sniff their crotch.
I try not to lump all dog owners in the same pile of dog sh*t but it’s getting more and more difficult. Dogs no matter how close they are to a person are animals period. A dog can be replaced but humans can’t. Off my chest!
At this point I should leave it be. But the angry daddy in me wants to go wring his neck with his dog. So now my goal is to speak with the owner in a calm manner and explain why besides the law he was wrong. This ought to make for an interesting post tomorrow.
