Adventures at the Dog Park (Part 1)


We've had quite a few adventures at the dog park lately.  It's a great way to get Taylor some exercise and social time with dogs that don't just bite her and get Cotton to run around and wear him out (which shortens the witchy hour significantly).

Saturday night, we got to the park and Taylor ran off to play with the other dogs.  I decided to hold on to Cotton until we got away from the other dogs.  That didn't stop people from coming up to meet and pet Cotton.  One of those people was a man in his 40's that looked like maybe he was coming off of a meth binge.  He proceeded to pet Cotton while I was holding him.

Now, that wouldn't normally be a problem, except that in order to pet Cotton, the meth head man was coming dangerously close to petting my boobs.  And that's not exactly something I go to the dog park for.  I actually don't ever want a meth head stranger to touch my boob.  But that's just me.

I decided the best way to remedy the situation was to was to put Cotton down.  Then meth addict strange man's fiance' came over and started petting him.  And by petting, I mean sticking her fingers in front of his face.  Since Cotton is a puppy, he took that to mean that he could chew on her fingers.

I guess that wasn't what she had in mind.  In an effort to correct Cotton's biting, she started shoving her fingers down his throat while saying, "This works to stop them from biting cause they hate it when you stick your fingers down their throats.  Sometimes they throw up a little, but it's ok."

Um... is it ok?  It is ok to stick your fingers down SOMEONE ELSE'S dog's throat?

Cause I don't think so.

I don't know, just my opinion.

We started walked away from everyone at that point.  When we got far enough away, Phil turned to me and said, "I'm not all that comfortable having someone that looks like they are high choking our dog."

  3. People are so weird! Next time just lie and say that he hasn't had all of his shots and you have to be careful about people touching him. Those kind of people won't know the difference anyway :) What a cute little puppy! He is already getting bigger.

  6. People can act so strange sometimes, why would you do that to someone's puppy? I can understand you want to cuddle him, cause he's beyond cute. But I would always ask the owner if it's ok. Strange, strange world we live in :-) but Cotton cute as a button :-)
