So today I encountered something I never really thought about before. My car is in the shop so I've got to walk everywhere for a bit. I needed to just grab some toiletry stuff at a local drug store and figured my dog would enjoy tagging along for the walk. So I threw a leash on her and grabbed my bag and headed out. When I got to the store I realized I couldn't bring her inside. So I glanced around and saw a little pole I could tie her to off to the side but it felt wrong to me. I spent a long time panicking over it. Did it make me a bad owner? Would someone think that's dog abuse? Would someone steal her? Would someone think she'd been there all day? What if someone untied her? I ended up taking my notebook out and wrote real big:
HI I'M BANDIT. MY OWNER WENT TO GRAB 4 THINGS AND WILL RETURN IN 1-2 MINUTES. I'M NICE TO PEOPLE. I'M NOT NICE TO OTHER DOGS.
I placed my bag down (just had school stuff, nothing valuable in it) and the notebook on top of it and then went inside. By the time I came back out I realized it wasn't even enough time for anyone to even walk past her. Spent all that time freaking out over nothing.
How do you guys feel when you pass a dog tied up? Is that wrong for some reason or is that an irrational feeling I have?
