I hate dogs. Actually, I hate irresponsible dog owners who walk their dog without a leash. And my city happens to be filled to the brim with these reckless dog walkers who endanger all those around them, including their own beloved pets.
Majority of the time, nothing happens as I slow down to pass. However, once in a while, the dog will start barking and their owner will call to them. We have two dog parks in the city where the dogs can run free. Why can’t they put them on a leash until they get there?
Another bad habit of some dog owners is leaving the dog dropping right there on the ground, sometimes in the middle of the sidewalk, like it’s going to magically disappear all by itself. Some nights I feel like I am jumping hurdles doing my run!
How do you handle dogs when you go out for a run?
