My dog CAN read and she is deeply offended!



Actually the point is well taken. I love my Daisy girl but unless she's inside my home or trailer, in my fenced in backyard or a public off-leash dog park, she's on a leash and I'm carrying plastic poop bags.

Dogs are mirrors of their owners, which is probably why they have been a part of human society since long before recorded history. If you treat them like dogs, they will act like dogs; if you treat them like humans, they will act like humans (for good or bad). If you treat them as irresponsible, they will act irresponsibly; if you expect them to act responsibly, they will. As has been mentioned, dogs don't really care whether they are on or off leash, whether they are trained or untrained, responsible or irresponsible. They just want to be part of a pack which includes knowing what the rules of the pack are, to be fed regularly, and to work and play (depending on the breed, I guess).

I'm curious. Can your dog read?

I get that people love their dogs, I like dogs myself, but they are NOT people. They are NOT your kids, they are not humans, they are dogs.

Well, yes. She becomes quite absorbed in the doggie newspapers she finds on the corners of buildings and certain shrubs.

That's sweet. I hope they grow up to help pay you social security as well.

I guess that I am very lucky. I already get my social security (I am 71) but I would be well if I was not getting it -- it is just "icing on the cake".

On a lighter note. When we had 3 dogs, a grumpy neighbor asked me " why do you have 3 dogs".
I replied that it was because the bylaws say we can't have 4.
It didn't cheer him up.😁

OK folks - a number of posts have been removed from this thread as they were either off topic or simply not nice, mostly the latter.

If you have a concern about a post, please use the report post function rather than amping up hostilities. Thanks for understanding.

Hi

In our case, I believe the limit is five. The answer then would be "because I'm still looking for two more..".

I suspect that would not cheer the grumpy neighbor up any at all

========

Right now we're taking ours out one at a time. It's very interesting to watch each of them acclimate to the whole process. They each seem to "hang up" at different points. Two are fine in the truck, one isn't quite settled in. None of them have figure out the steps on first sight. Each of them has had their own approach to working them out. It will be interesting when we find out who gets to sleep where with multiple "clients" for the choice spots ....

Bob - if your two pups are like mine, then about every hour of the night they will decide the other has the better spot and a swap is required.

That was on a "don't ask--don't tell" basis".

If a campground charges a per-dog fee, we stay somewhere else.

I think an awful lot of these rules are to give the management an excuse to pitch you out if you are creating a problem.
I no longer travel with pets, but the "rule stringency" test is accurate in my experience.

Too many people with no sense of propriety.

The written rules are there to have a deputy escort offenders away (loud drunks the usual offender).

Most folks are smart enough to stay away from the animals of others. Too easy to have problems.

And if those clean up, etc, everyone else is happy to wave and go about their business.
