You know, I could see a guy yelling at you for not keeping (what he believed was) your dog leashed. However, to HIT you for it? That goes a little too far in my book. Release the beast and let it eat him.
What ever happened to being grateful of having someone helping you from having a trip to the ER?
Really? The "that's why I like cats/dogs better" comment? Is it just me, or are these getting kind of annoying? It seems like they're on all of the cat/dog FMLs and they never really have a point. Plus, I hate it when people act like all dogs and/or cats are vicious or stupid or otherwise unpleasant. Every cat and dog has their own personality/temperament, that's the beauty of them. It can also have a lot to do with how you train them. Yes, there are mean dogs and cats, but both can be very sweet too.
What an asshole. Well, I hope you took the dog home. Maybe you can find his/her original owners.
9- OP knows how to handle aggressive dogs, so he can probably keep the dog under control, and off the streets. There's no point in being angry at the dog either- if the man was hateful enough to randomly punch a stranger for getting the dog off of him, someone that wasn't even present at the very beginning of the attack, then he's just as likely to have done something to the dog to cause the attack. In these situations I look at what the person has done, and then at the dog. Somehow in our society dogs are disposable. It doesn't matter how badly we treat an animal, the first time it lunges at us, we smile happily, call it terrible creature, and then slaughter it. We jump to kill, instead of working with it, understanding its behavior, retraining it, or just simply acknowledging what we have done to cause the problem. The majority of these violent dog attacks are because of human fault.
Go number 33! Having a grandma, and a few friends now, who breed dogs, and having volunteered to socialize abused animals for years, I've never met a dog that was violent before it was influenced by a human to act violently. And I've seen many aggressive dogs turn into loving family pets when they were given the chance.
I hate when people blame the dog. It's always the peoples fault. I've never seen a case where a normal dog would just attack a person. Then they blame the breed. A dog is a dog, some are more aggressive than others, but it is the owners responsibility to take that into account when they get a dog.
This really defeats the stereotype of Canada being the nicest country on Earth. Anyway, karma tends to work in mysterious ways.
Ah. I live in the very North-Eastern part of New York. Where I'm from, the general consensus is that they're terrible drivers, trash our stores and are very very rude. They also camp in our Walmart parking lot and leave there trash everywhere. It's certainly not all of them, but a few ruin it for the rest.
I kid you not. Every weekend there are campers all over the parking lot with Quebec licence plates and when they're in the stores they'll throw merchandise right on the floor and leave it there. I've worked in retail, no one in my town likes them. Like I said, it's not all of them but don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, I'm the one that lives here.
Calm down, I never said you didn't know what you were talking about. It's the Internet, don't take shit so personally. That being said, not even Canada likes the Québécois, so I see how they would be annoying aha. Edit: ignore my first reply, I did not mean to post that
KBear's right about the shitty driving. I just moved to Toronto and If you indicate you're changing lanes, instead of slowing down they'll speed up, and give you a dirty look when passing. Among other things, they're complete jerks on the freeway. I don't know what they're trying to prove. And a ridiculous argument? I have no idea what you're talking about. What's that over there? *Crawls into hole*
