This thread proves why I trust dogs I meet on the trail more than I do humans.

This whole Forum is going the same direction as Tetongravity.
This Thread went from friendly advice to the darkside.

Par for the course

This.

I mean come on, I grew up with a brilliant pitbull mutt that I loved with all my heart. But no reasonable person is really going to argue that dog[HTML_REMOVED]human[HTML_REMOVED]child. Clearly there's a rapidly increasing problem with entitled dog owners and people being attacked. A brief search online says it's a million people a year being attacked in North America size problem, and growing at an unprecedented rate.

Everyone's got a horrific story of themselves or someone they know or love being attacked. I know my Pops was always leery of dogs, the right side of his mouth and chin were completely nerve dead from being mauled as a toddler by the neighbor's Jack Russel.

As a dog owner being completely entitled and arrogant about the issue isn't a workable option. That's called being an Asshole, plain and simple. And it's not doing the rest of the dog owners any favors. A lot of people have a legitimate fear of dogs, and really if people are being reasonable and basing their fears on probabilities, everyone should initially be defensive around dogs until proven otherwise. Especially with their children.

No doubt dogs are man's best friend and are a part of us, deserving our love and respect. But anyone that's putting their dogs above their fellow human beings needs to think deeper.

As a dog owner, I agree.

There's far too much of an entitlement culture surrounding us, lack of civility, lack of thought for the common good. Some of the behaviour cited in this thread provides good examples (dog-related and otherwise).

Once a dogs bum gland exploded on me…the smell was so bad I threw up. Tossed out my jeans, drove home in my gonch.
My dog owner friend thought it was very funny.
