It's so neat when you have a chance to teach a kid not to be afraid of dogs (or any other animal, for that matter.) And as a dog lover (especially of a "dangerous" breed like a doberman), it feels so good to be an ambassador.
I was at a dog park with Capri puppy--she was probably 5 months old--and she barreled right over a three year old (I mean, who brings a 3 year old to a dog park and lets him wander around unattended?) as she tore off into the distance after something. I saw the kid start to pucker up and saw mom heading over out of the corner of my eye, so I picked him up (he wasn't physically hurt, just scared, I think) and babbled at him in a fun way about that silly puppy who just RAN RIGHT over him...KABOOM!
And he giggled and that was that.
The parents who rush up and start in with the "OMG, are you alright!! That MEAN dog, did he hurt you??" drive me nuts. It's just setting those kids up to be afraid of all dogs.
I keep telling you all that each generation that is born is getting dumber and dumber. They may be smart about technology, but can they change a flat tire?
People that I speak of, may to be technologically able to build a gate, but not know how to close it? Would they know how to change their oil? Do they even know to make sure their oil is clean? What if they were on a lonely highway and Triple A was no where to be had?
Yes, I am throw a little temper tantrum here.
So, here comes my rant.
So, my right arm was all loaded up with my heavy coat, purse and lunch bag.
I turned around, after locking the door, and there were the goats.
Eating my grass that I maintain and pay taxes on.
They might have caused me to be late for work. But, I come out there all bowed up they split and gent. But, today I discovered they slip through the shut gate. Stupid neighbors aren't chaining it tight enough.
They were doing really good for an impressive amount of time. Now they are getting lazy again and leaving the chance for their livestock to piss me off.
I have to park by their gate to shut my gate. Before I shut my gate I tightened their chain up for them.
I tighten it up really good! Lesson 101 on keeping your livestock contained.
I wasn't even all worried about leaving late for work and not in a hurry to get there was arrived 8 minutes early.
I probably should figure out how to start my own business.

My rant is over for now, but I deserve the right to resurrect it.
