My first mistake was taking this route at the time I did. We have many bc my dogs a sniffer and I like to take him a different way on our walk every time we walk. enrichment and all. We went around 3 which is the start of school pick up and we walk by a school. This street is inhabited by plethora of old people. The original settlers of our subdivision if you will.
Anyway, we are walking and sniffing. No big deal. She starts yelling at me from across the street THESE GODDAMN DOGS. I didn't pay it any attention until she directly started yelling at me. YOU HEY YOU WITH THAT FUCKING BLACK DOG. I didn't hear a lot of it but mostly her discrepancies about dogs peeing and pooping all over. Idk. These "goddamn dogs in this goddamn neighborhood". My dog was sniffing a bush. Did he pee on our walk at some point 100% but not when she was yelling at me and not near her house. I clean my dogs poop and we weren't anywhere near her yard and he didn't poop on this particular walk. Just to be clear my dog was currently sniffing a push on on city side of the street... by the curb... not by her house at all. Like not even on HERR side of the street! So I'm flaborgasted wanting a relaxing walk with my dog who btw is having a hip replacement in 4 days so I'm already emotional about walks as it is and wanting to give him really good walks to sniff and be out bc he won't for a while... fuuuck me and my dog I guess who did literally nothing wrong to her or her yard.
Like I'd get it if I was on her side of the street.. whatever, she had a bad experience with dogs pooping in her yard or something...idk... whatever her reason I wasn't about to let her shout at me bc I'm not the lady to that to when we have done nothing wrong while we were on a public side walk. After about 5 minutes of her screaming and me screaming she went inside and we had a nice rest of our walk. But wow that was the first bad experience I've had with someone about my dog. Usually people scream at me to pet him not to cuss me and my dog out for existing.
Ik some people have issues with dogs. I get it. A dog peeing on your yard or pooping and you hate dogs. But we live in a society and people have dogs. Like idk what she thinks she accomplishing or what she thinks all dog owners need to do to make HER happy. She can go live in a gated community with no dogs if she's so concerned about it.
