Dog owning can be tough at times :(

Post by Rowan11 » 27 Mar 2012, 20:22

I feel really quite upset - not having a good week. firstly a friend of mine came round who has never warmed to Luna but yesterday was saying "UUUGHHH get off Dog" to luna who was simply trying to say hello and was shoving her away when she was trying to sniff her son ! (her son later started screaming when luna approached him - all because of his mum's attitude i believe).
Then today i was walking along the wirral way with a friend and luna went running up to a dog to say hello ! its owners were 2 grumpy old gits who started shouting at me to put my dog on a lead ! I said she's only saying hello and she's just a pup - i got quite a lot of verbal abuse then, fingers pointed at me, my friend was told to 'shut it' - i decided to walk away and they shouted at us to 'get a life' !!! I was totally shocked and felt so upset ! I did point out that luna was just being friendly and that this is where people come to let their dogs off the lead but they were having none of it. why do some old people need to be so rude :cry:

Aww Dawn, don't let the minority of ignorant people get you down. Some people really aren't happy unless they're moaning about something.

You enjoy your walks with Luna - she is just beautiful and as for your friend, tell her it is your AND Luna's house and not to shove her as she is only a puppy :)

Oh Dawn, what a terrible week you’ve had :( . I too would have been upset about the old folks, some people just have no manners & are just awful. :x

Luna is a wonderful girl, how your friend couldn’t love her is beyond me :roll: . Maybe next time your at hers, you could accidently spill red wine on her carpet :lol: :lol: . (I’m so vindictive :wink: )

Hope you feeling less blue. just looking at Luna will make you feel better, she’s so sweet. :D

I timing they are all just jealous because Luna is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! Plus any normal dog owner would normally give puppies a by ball. Unlucky day.... You happened to meet grumps today.

Hugs and doodle love

Dont let them get you down.

Your friend should respect that Luna is a beautiful addition to your family and should be treated that way.

As for the grumpy oldies - we bumped into some on a doodle walk and they were so rude i was really shocked.

Have to believe in Karma - so you will be just fine :D

it is such a shame when a "human" freind is not dog freindly because they can easily make a child scared of dogs which is a great loss. Most dogs are really good companions and play freinds for children .

My heart goes out to u completely as i know the feeling so well. some other dog owners can b so far up their own behind that they really have lost the ability to enjoy life and remember the love and joy these little doodles bring us. mind u to be fair they r probably so miserable rhat they have no joy in their life.

U love ur Luna doodle Dawn and give her a big snuffle from Us.

I like the saying the more I meet people the more I love my dog! :mrgreen: and it's sooo true.

When Dexter was a puppy and just learning he was friendly to everyone, and dogs and I got shouted at a couple of times, and Dexter was only saying hello. People can be miserable and rude but that's life.

And reference the friend, I think it should be a case of love me love my dog :wink:
