|I walk the guys in a dog park that is also a cemetery (http://www.cemeterydogs.org). It's 33 acres entirely fenced. Even though it is an official dog park, people come in to jog or ride bikes (no dog with them), and then are surprised when a dog might run after them. Sigh.
Plus, many dog owners do bring small infants, toddlers, etc. My favorite moment re that subject was parents who brought their 1 week old baby to the park. The baby was hanging off the front of dad in a front pack, face forward, legs and arms hanging down. As myself and a friend walked our dogs past, we noted dad swatting dogs away who were jumping up to see junior. Just as we walked by, my clever friend Jeanette looked over at the spectacle, and remarked in a very audible voice, "Oh, fresh baby."
I couldn't stop laughing. Junior was lucky to make it out with baby legs intact. But then again, with such stupid parents, he'll be lucky to make it out of most situations. Oh, fresh baby.
