As a matter of fact, wreckless drivers are not a problem at all. It's the reckless ones you need to look out for.

This thread is completely ridiculous. Thanks for giving me a good wake up during a hangover.



Boy, I'd hate to be crossing the waterfall below and get clobbered by some terminal-velocity recycled Alpo. :shock:

They chase the wildlife, make too much noise, sh*t all over, and insist on pushing their nose into my groin or licking my kids with their slobber. Please, please keep your dogs at home! You really can be alone, for a few hours, without your stupid pets!

well if Will Ferrell doesn't allow it as the anti dog lawyer Wade BlasingGame I don't think we should.

But seriously owners just respect other people and only bring your dog if it can obey you... and obey doesn't mean it knows its name.
But hey dogs are fun I bring mine almost every time. But she is under control.
