It sure would be great if people kept their dogs on a leash, even when in their yards. On our walk, just today alone, three dogs left their yards and came to my two dogs and myself. Their owners just say, "Oh, don't worry, they're friendly." Well, maybe mine aren't. This is a daily occurrence in the summertime, no matter what route I take. I am following the law and keeping my dogs on a leash and under control. Come on people. Not only is it rude and disrespectful to those of us walking on the street, it can sometimes be scary. It would be great if everyone could be responsible pet owners and keep their dogs in their yards!
