I don’t know you were bilingual.
I know a few phrases here and there. Picked this one up running through my neighborhood. It roughly translates to:

Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
whatever you're looking for
Don't come around here no more

Some people are great dog parents and some aren't. It happens.
There are no "pet parents", just animal owners. But I agree, some of them are worse than others.

Agree to disagree. Our animals are our family, not something we own.

Gotten nipped a couple different times while trail running and started carrying pepper spray but recently switched to a small air horn. One short blast makes everyone stop in their tracks for a moment. Light, cheap, non lethal, and quick to deploy.

Bad pets and bad pet people are like bad drivers, they're really a small percentage of the overall population but there terribleness gives the illusion of higher numbers.

Also, to quote Dave Barry, "The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers."

That’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. He was the guest speaker at my command’s ball in Miami. In related news, Miami-Dade has the worst drivers.

Duke agrees with the content. Dogs chasing after wildlife is a painful thing to see on the trail!

For the dog owners who think marmots are just cute furry toys for their mutts;

Consider the time I came upon a group treating their dog in Wetterhorn Basin some time ago. They told me the dog chased a marmot which decided to stand it's ground and bit the foot of the dog clear through. Looked like a very nasty wound.

Luckily 14ers.com exists so people can vent their frustrations instead of handling them in person.
