So we're walking along socializing (both us and the dogs) when the dogs suddenly go all weird. Some of them start pacing and others run back to their owners. A few just keep wandering around like nothing has happened - but not many. Of my two, one keeps walking along with her nose in the air (it smells better up there, you know) and the other begins to mimic the other dogs' pacing and comes to check in with us and continues along in a heel.
We are coming up to a bend in the trail that bends and goes the opposite way, so we couldn't see what was coming along. You could imagine our surprise when, just as we turn the corner, we are almost run over by a lone cyclist riding his bike in the dog park!! He would have had to either come in through the gate or hopped the fence to get in - we were betting the latter because of the large number of dogs that hang out at the gate (and who in their right mind would ride their bike in a dog park?!).
No matter how he got in, he was taking his life in his hands. He must have horse shoes up his backside to have been able to ride through the entire dog park without encountering a dog that attacked his bike. Who knows, maybe one of the dogs did go after his bike - maybe that's why he left.
What would make you want to ride through the dog park in the first place?? Suicide? Some weird desire to be seriously damaged? A vendetta against dogs?
Congratulations ... through this ridiculous act of stupidity, you have earned the Dogs Deserve Freedom Asshat Award. Print it off and pin it to your shirt. Wear it proudly.
