I did not think I was going to write about this again, but I was proven wrong today. So, here it goes. I went out walking with Luca and we must have walked barely 5 minutes when another dog came at us full speed, yes you guessed right, without a leash. Luca barked at the dog twice and pulled me a little bit, but listened to me for the most part, and boy was I grateful about it. Luca is a big dog, maybe a mix of German Shepard and Rottie, not sure.
Anyway, this dog kept barking at Luca and me, and his mom seemed not concerned at all while she was rummaging through her purse. I guess she was too busy to come and get her dog so I decided to utter these magic words, “If your dog bites my dog or me, you are legally liable”. Wow! She got her dog in a matter of seconds.
Yes, our society is a very litigious one, in my opinion, but I had to get her attention one way or another. Pet parents, please, put a leash on your dog. He can either hurt others or hurt himself. Cherish the time you have with your dog, and don’t put him in harm’s way.
