On Saturday, when I came home from practicing weight pulling with Messiah, I saw an AB in a yard three down from my house. There were 4 guys standing out there throwing horseshoes. Because I saw it, I made sure to put Messiah on his leash before he jumped out of the 4Runner. Anyhow, he jumped down and I walked to the mailbox to get the mail. I turned around to go back to the house and the AB saw us. He came running up to us and the guys didn't even notice at first. I gave Messiah the "sit" command and he listened, but was still pulling forward toward the AB. The AB just sniffed and acted like it wanted to play. Then, they one guy notices and says "He's fine, he just wants to play." So, the 4 guys all walk over and start asking questions about Messiah. The AB, which I found out is about 9 months old, keeps trying to play and jump at Messiah. Messiah and I werre fine with it for a while. But, then the dumb MALE AB starts trying to hump Messiah. Messiah just stood up on two feet and sort of "boxed" the AB to stop him from trying to mount. I told the guy that's not a good idea, Messiah isn't gonna like it. All the while, he's just letting the AB do whatever, not trying to stop or discipline it at all. Well, it tried to mount Messiah again and Messiah ripped in to him. Within a split second I had Messiah picked up OVER my shoulder, and the guy still didn't grab his dog. I said "I told you that he wasn't gonna go for that" but they still didn't get a hold of the AB. He's more worried about how good my dog looks compared to his lanky AB, and yet he says "If you ever want to use him for stud with your female, I won't charge you anything." (somewhere in the conversation I told him I had another male and female in the house, because if that were Montana that this AB ran up on, she would've ripped in to it instantly. She's not in to strange dogs in her territory.) Anyway, I said as politely as I could "no thanks" on the stud offer and took Messiah inside. But, now I have to be more careful w/ my dogs outside, b/c these guys are over there all the time. If I see that or the APBT's they have over there sometimes running loose, I WILL be calling the authorities. I hate to do it, but I'm not taking the chance of getting in trouble or my dogs getting hurt b/c these guys aren't responsible. They don't even live there and the person who does rents the house, doesn't even own it. I wonder if the landlord even knows they constantly have dogs over there? Anyway, LEASH YOUR DOGS IN PUBLIC, for the responsible dog owner's sake!!!
