ugh… some of y’all on here may know my Fiance & I are new puppy owners. We adopted 6-7 weeks ago and it has been….interesting to say the least!
Well, tonight Zeus ( the pup) is extra hyper. Like running sprints all around and covering every inch of our 1200 sq ft apartment!
So, Fiance decides he need to run to the store and opens up the front door to leave. Before his foot is across the welcome mat, Zeus has zipped past him and is running down the breezeway.
So we both take off, calling him… but too late. He spotted a dog in the building directly across from us. He is a playful guy, and won’t bite or be aggressive, but he does jump.
So, we are chasing him and he is chasing this pip-squeak little dog around and this little dog is making the most awful skrieking noise I have ever heard. The owner of that dog was standing there ( still ) and holding another dog.
Well, Zeus being the fiesty son of a gun he is runs around everyone in circles until Fiance finally gets a hold of his collar and starts to walk him back. About that time, some older lady comes storming out of her apartment and yells at us, saying: ” he is supposed to be on a LEASH you know”.
Neither of us respond but keep walking
She says, ” HEY, what apartment do you live in!?”
Neither of us answer.
She asks us AGAIN… calling after us as we are walking away with the dog.
I am so pissed right now. Why does she get to badger me about the dog getting out? She didn’t have a dog in the fight ( no pun intended!)
Ehhhhh- I want to go back over there so bad and tell her to mind her own damn business next time and to not worry about where my apartment, she isn’t my landlord!
I would be alarmed if I heard commotion outside of my house, but if upon inspection I saw it was just a dog that got out… I wouldn’t freaking care and leave it alone! Not scream at my neighbors who are obviously stressed/fed up with the dog. I am sure she could tell by the way we were silently walking away with a firm grip on his collar.
