Although all of us go to the dog parks for our furry friends to socialize and have fun, I do believe SOME folks need a good bonk on the head. The dog parks all have little guy areas (for obvious reasons) and the big boy area. I hear over and over from folks that have a shih tsu size dog (10 pounds or less) tell me that “He really thinks he is a big guy.”

Well I am here to tell you that your Shih Tzu is no match for a 80-pound German Shepard. Why you would put your small dog in a possibly no win situation, is beyond me. All the dogs are just like people, they have their favorites and not so favorites. The big ones that have an issue, usually work it out in a matter of seconds. No big deal! However, the little ones get tangled up in the mess, maybe, even started it, by being a bit aggressive and snapping at a much larger dog. Do you really think your so called (little, big guy) has half a chance with a german shepard, doberman, even a lab?

Think about it for a minute — You have no chance. It’s like putting Pee Wee Herman in the boxing ring with George Forman. What are you thinking? I cannot go in the little area for obvious reasons, I do not belong there. They are taking all the risks, but I will have to pay if your ignorance gets your dog injured or killed. I will feel awfully bad, especially when it could all be avoided.

People, wake up! Stay where you are safest, and pay attention to your dog and his friends.

Thank you for letting me vent.
