It’s always the Waffle House!
Some folks just don’t know how to walk away, call it ego or pride or stupidity, what ever it is it always gets them in trouble.
Had an incident tonight at the dog park. Guy with a husky had zero control over his dog. Buddy was playing and having a good time with other dogs when his dog decided he was going to show Buddy he was the king of the park. I called Buddy off a few times, but this guys dog kept coming and he kept ignoring it. Guy finally leashed his dog, I took Buddy to a far away bench, put his harness and leash on to leave when the dude let his dog off the leash. Guess who he beelined to?
I yelled at the guy to come get his dog and to be a responsible dog owner, he apparently didn’t like that. As he was going to leash his dog up he decided a sucker punch was in order. Unfortunately for him Buddy wasn’t having it (remember what I said in a previous post about Buddy being all business when his harness is on), he’s very lucky I had Buddy on the short work leash, had control of him, and he listens when called off. Otherwise he’d have experienced the power of the Belgian Malinois bite.
Guy threatened to call the police, luckily every dog owner in the park let him know they sided with me. I didn’t know this, but his dog was attacking other dogs all night causing people to leave.
Some people make it impossible to deescalate.
