Dog owners protest higher leash law fines
I stumbled on this article and nearly fell off my chair. Turns out that city officials in Baltimore are receiving flack for raising the fines given to those who walk their dogs without leashes. It sort of goes hand in hand with the blog entry I made on March 21 regarding Seattle Off-Leash Dogs.
News Flash for Dog Owners!
The leash laws are there to protect you, your dogs, other people, children and other dogs. It is also in place to prevent dogs from chasing, catching or killing wildlife and other animals. Stop fighting it! You just show city officials that dog owners are asshats and the rest of us don't want to be grouped in with your crap.
Those of us who are responsible dog owners are always shadowed by those who have to make big deals out of things. Did you asshat-owners ever think that the rest of us are getting tired of paying for your mistakes and your big fat mouth(s)?
I am going to say this slowly ...
If you don't want a fine for having your dog off leash in a controlled area ... DON'T BREAK THE LAW.
It's really very simple.
