I had Farles at Petsmart today and we were looking at toys and Farles was sitting nicely beside me. Some guy came up and said "excuse me" but didn't even give me one second to get out of the way, and he just immediately stepped forward right onto Farley's tail!

Farley yelped in pain then immediately started barking and growling at the guy. I called the guy a you-know-what and left. What an idiot! Farley is a big dog, there's no excuse for stepping on him! Sorry, just had to rant about what happened. My poor Farles. frown

Ouch!! I think that guy had it coming. What a dope.

Aww, poor guy!

Somebody dropped a bag of food on Conker once, and it wasn't a small bag! Lets just say that person left without buying anything, and none of the employees were mad at me for telling them off. (They all love Conker and they have a "game" where they see how long it takes new employees to convince Conker to take a treat from them.)

I've seen Petsmart isles here... and if they're anything like there... HOW COULD HE NOT HAVE GONE AROUND?! Or waited for you to move with Farley, so Farley was out of his way?

It honestly sounds like it was intentional.

Did he at least apologize?

Ugh... I would have FLIPPED.

Thanks everyone hug Farley's tail is okay it just really irks me when strangers have NO consideration for my dog's space let alone physically harming my dog! I get extremely defensive.

Charlie- you're probably right. There's no way that guy couldn't have seen THIS TAIL on a 70-lb dog.

Had that been one of my family dogs there would have been some nasty words said. We go to petsmart once in a while ourselves and its pretty wide isles in there. Katana loved it there. We plan on taking Tank next month.
