    So fed up with people!

    UGGG!!! I was at petsmart with my Zoey; she was being such a sweetie. Sitting for me and letting little girls pet her (actually wagging her tail, she is normally afraid to death of little kids.) I was walking down the toy isle, and had Zoey on a immediate sit after I stop walking. When this hyper golden retriever pulled her owner and jumped all over Zoey from behind her. Zoey got scared and jumped up from sit, making it look like she was encouraging playing. The owner actually had the nerve to yell at me and tell me to control my dog. She told me girls my age should never own dogs, and we just let our dogs run over the store. It's like excuse me? Out of anger (I shouldn’t have done it) I looked at her and told her that she could go to h*ll. I am so tired of people treating me like crap for my age. When my dog is the one being a good girl. She said I should teach my dog to have manners, like she is teaching her dog. I told her that she really should keep her mouth shut. I am a dog trainer, that my dog has titles on her. I told her she needs to get her eyes check. She said that if she came to my classes that she would leave the first day.

    I know my anger got a little out of control, but hey I am just a child that shouldn’t own a dog right? Rant’s make you feel better!

    Yeah, some people discriminate against age and it's not a good thing. She doesn't realize someone at your age could actually know MORE than someone twice your age.....like me!

    Don't take it to heart, you know what YOU are doing and that's all that matters.
    Good job Zoey, being a good girl for mommy!!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Ugh. Some people really bug me. I agree though, don't take it to heart. Glad to hear Zoey was doing good with the little kids

    I'm sorry this lady jumped all over you. She should have never said anything about someone your age owning a dog. She couldn't be any more wrong. I think you did well mentioning your dog's titles and your training.

    Yeah, people are reeeeeal smart. -_- Sorry her attitude bothered you, just be happy that while you may be younger(and when is that a bad thing?), you are obviously more mature than her.

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    I am so sorry she treated you the way she did. she has no right, especially since she had her dog out of control and Zoey was being good. I don't think age has to do with being a pet owner, just responsibility counts to me. and I know you are very responsible.

    I'm sorry you had to go through this,I was in Pet Smarts close to a month ago,I dont know if there the same everywhere,They have bins as soon as you walk in for like $2 and up to $10.

    Anyways i was routing through them too see if there was anything good,I had Lacy in the cart(She loves it),With daddy's help offcourse.

    Anyways she was sitting there like a little lady,This Big Ol English SheepDog,jumped on our cart.The cart slammed into my ribs.

    Poor lacy started screaming she is terrified,And the lady started laughing.

    I was so upset it took my lacy alot of courage to even go in the store,She was crying the rest of the time in there,I'm sorry but people should control there dogs.

    This is why I like animals more than people.
    Dogs are not our whole lives but they make our lives whole.

    You did good telling her off but still being kind about it. It astounds me how ignorant people are these days, she should have been apologizing profusely after her dog jumped on yours. But so many people aren't willing to take responsibility for their own or their pets actions these days. It's very sad.

    What a jerk.She was in wrong.She had no right to tell you your too young to own a dog.She was probably embarrassed and jealous that your dog was more beautiful and better behaved then her's. She needed to be put in her place.
