So this afternoon my OH was in the house with the dog and noticed a woman with a toddler (probably about 2 years) and what looked like the toddler's grandma stood outside on the pavement talking to the neighbours. The toddler took off and decided to run into our drive (our driveway is pretty big and he came all the way up to the front door). The two women took not the blindest bit of notice and didn't seem to care that the child was running around on someone else's property. My OH watched for a while and then decided to go out. She opened the front door and stood in the doorway looking unimpressed for a while until the mother eventually half-heartedly said to the toddler "Come on then, this way". Toddler took no notice whatsoever and then Holly stuck her head out the door. She didn't bark or lunge or anything of the sort and my OH ensured that she didn't get through the doorway, but the mere sight of her made the woman rush over and scoop up the toddler quickly . Of course it doesn't matter that this child was on someone else's property, but as soon as a big scary dog appears the mother had to ensure that said child wasn't eaten! She didn't even apologise to my OH. I bet she would have had something to say if Holly had dared to bark. People can be so rude and inconsiderate.
