    How to keep it short?

    Three days in a row, Zoe and her mom were at the park in the early morning. I saw here and went intot he 'small and frail dog' area. Separately fenced. Others did the same. I guess the lady got the idea that we weren't comfortable with Zoe and on the 4th day, she took Zoe into that area and let us have the rest of the park. (Not a problem for small dog owners. They don't show up in the early morning.<g>)

    The next day, with her in the smaller area and several of us in the big area, she called us over to tell us she had been looking for a basket type muzzle in town but couldn't find one, so she had ordered on online. She hopes it will work and we can all be comfortable together again.

    I hope it works. I think we got through to her. I believe she is trying now.

    I'm glad she's realized the seriousness of it, Ed, and that she's trying. That's great news.

    Why can't she just leave the damned dog at home? honest to God.

    That's what I'm thinking, too.

    I mean, OK, I'm glad she isn't being COMPLETELY irresponsible now, and that she's not giving up on her dog. However, if the dog can't be off-leash, there's no reason whatsoever for her to come to a dog park, she can just go for on-leash walks elsewhere and not stress out everyone around her. It doesn't sound like this behavior is something that Zoe will "get over" with a basket muzzle and time.

    Of course, this is like my stupid neighbors a block away, who can take loads of other routes but insist on walking past our house with their two dogs - who for some reason cause mine to go crazy. They even comment about it. Duh! just walk on the other side, dammit!

    Well at least a little bit of the info got through the lady's thick head.. but more important than a muzzle, she should probably talk to a behaviorist.. would probably help A LOT.. then maybe determine if she's okay at the park, with or without a muzzle.

    I just hate to see what happens if Zoe comes into contact with a small/frail dog!

    My thought is that she will put her own dog at risk if or when it attacks another dog with that muzzle on. The dog she attacks will fight back for sure an do damage. Not a good idea at all IMHO.

    The dog (and her) needs professional help from a behaviourist.

    A muzzle is very likely going to send this dog right over the edge.
