      We also only have one very tiny dog park in this city and it often over crowded so many people use other parks and allow their dogs offlead which is against the law. I find the dog park is why to over whelming for Sophie with dogs every and weve witnessed fights break out over dogs and sometimes owners in a yelling match. I dont mind peoples dogs offlead as long as they can call them back. I take Sophie to this forested place in the city as it quite discreet and away from the roads and is quite. No worries it's always nice to chat to someone :)

      I even had one time where I was juggling Sophie screaming because a young child was walking a husky who pulled the child on the ground to us and I was trying to grab its lead so it wouldnt run into traffic! She is onlead reactive so are most trouble is getting her attention when shes on lead and I have had a hard time telling weather she wants to say hi as she is excited or if shes trying to tell them off before they have a chance to get to us. I would have loved a big dog but my mother is afraid and nervous (shes been attacked herself) around the majority of large dogs (shell come on walks but wont walk Sophie with me or by herself) so we went with a small breed.

      Nah it was perfectly fine :) So many people seem to think (not on here but in real life) that Sophie is treated like a baby, Ill admit I do call her my baby and talk to her sometimes in a baby voice BUT all my animals are my babies and I view them as I my kids (undecided if I want kids myself leaning more to not having them). Sophie rolls in seaweed, mud, rocks, grass and bushes she comes out with twigs and leaves attached to her covered in mud, I do treat her like a dog regardless of her size. And I know what you mean about small dog owners not allowing their dogs to mingle tho I understand there may be a health reason for it which I respect. Im very confident around large dogs and have no problems with them. But I do worry about Sophie's safety as we have not met many dogs that have good manners and we have had many times where big larger dogs come bounding over and have even jumped on her and shes started screaming and Im trying to separate them while their owner isnt fazed.
