    There's a running gag among shopkeepers that no one in Coventry can read.

    In a park?

    She is always on a lead out on the streets. Only time off the lead is in a park.

    Wait til she learns not to leap up before you let her off

    Yeah keep her on the lead!

    Not just for the jumping up but other dogs too until she has grown out of it.

    I don't mind dogs jumping up, one of mine does it but they don't really go off the lead. If people come over to fuss we say they jump up so it's up to them!

    If she jumps up in the face of a not very nice dog on a lead for example :(

    Strangers who just assume they can come up to your dog. My dog doesn't care 99% of the time but there's plenty of dogs who aren't, surely asking first is sensible.

    We will have to agree to disagree then.

    Yeah there is that! It's worse when it's people letting their kids just run up to dogs. It just takes a random noise that makes the dog scared or the kid startling it.

    It depends on the context, if somebody goes over to stroke her and she jumps up or if she bombs off and jumps up randoms.

    Having to walk 2 big dogs on leads and having a random dog come running up and jumping isn't really fair :( luckily mine just get excited and want to play but it's still a pain to drag them away. Usually then have a random dog owner running over and panicking and then making things worse when all I want them to do is take their dog away :(

    Imagine if it runs up to the wrong dog though and jumps up :(

    I'm not arsed about dogs jumping up me though, I'm used to it so would just give them a stroke. Not everybody does though :(

    I only let my dog off her lead when there is no-one else around.

    Of course I can't then account for other people turning up and round corners etc.

    I keep her away from playgrounds and play areas too.

    She is so friendly though. She doesn't jump up like crazy but does love to say hi.

    Tried coaching it out if her and can't.

    Can't keep her on a lead forever, for the rest of her life.

    She is rather small too and never barks.

    That's what worries me, people tend to randomly appear. Not that she would harm anybody but if it's another dog on a lead that doesn't like dogs and she bolts to it.

    She will probably grow out of it!

    One of mine is the same, just wants attention and to play and tries to climb up people.

    Yeah, people do appear out of nowhere.

    She runs up to every single dog, snarly or not snarly.

    She will run over 300 metres away if she spots a dog. Wants to play with all of them.

    Slowly coaching that out of her.

    If she's bolting like that and it's a dog who doesn't take kindly who is on a lead.

    Have had it a couple of times where dogs just appear and their owners are miles off. One of them the dog was going at mine and their owner said it was just playing.

    Imagine if it was a rottweiler running to to people with a toy poodle etc :(

    Yeah, but as I say mine is very, very friendly, wagging her tail the whole way and everyone says she looks like a teddy bear. She is small and very friendly and it so obvious when she bounds over that she is no threat at all.

    People who instead of when drinking lift the cup up a bit more to drink it so the drink just goes into their mouth they decide they want to hardly move the cup but try and magically suck the drink out of the cup.

    Not sure on that one...Paris is a noun & Paris (properly pronounced) is the same whatever language. The fact that some are lazy/ignorant of the correct pronunciation, & put their own translation on it is no nevermind.

    ...onwards & upwards PUSB

    *Dons tin hat*

    Dogs and dog owners.

    Shit everywhere, leave bags of the stuff hanging about like shitty Christmas decorations. Let their dogs off the lead to run all over the fucking place. The growing trend of 12 year olds to have some violent beast to make themselves feel hard. Stupid, shitty, needy animals... and the dogs aren't great either.

    Get a fucking kid or keep it at home. Or next time I'm throwing my cat in your face and seeing how you like it.

    I was going to post yesterday about kids walking dogs on their own. No chance I'd let mine go out without us with one of the dogs. What happens if another dog comes up and attacks and there's a 7 year old stood there on her own? Saw a few the other day where the kids were just out on their own walking the dogs.

    Leaving dog shits pisses me off too, horse shit is another thing. They never pick that up do they?

    Why aren't cat owners obliged to pick up shit from their emotionally cold selfish pets?

    I have run a kids, now youth, football team for many years. We used to play on a primary school field and unbelievably they'd throw the shit bags/ shit bombs onto the school fields where the kids play. I have bollocked an owner before who's dog decided that it needed to curl one down in the middle of a pitch whilst the kids were warming up. He did come back and pick it up!

    Does my head in when people do that.

    There is nothing more horrifying than the dog shitting (not often out and about) and you have forgotten the bags though. I once had to sprint about a mile to the car, drive back with a bag to get it while the wife guarded it and apologised.

    Must have looked a bit silly, but don't leave them behind.

    The UK craze for all things dog - Fucking hate dogs and dog owners who treat the animal like a demi god.

    On a cycle path yesterday and went past a dog owner who sarcastically said "thanks" as I went by. Well done for holding onto it so it didn't jump up - put it on a fucking lead you utter bastard!

    My pal had a dog that could be a biter on occasions, and he had lots of people who walked up and started petting it without asking. A few of them got bitten, and started complaining about the nasty dog. If they had asked, my pal would have explained how to "befriend" him first, or probably just told them the dog bites, so don't pet him. They never gave him the chance. Usually happened while he was stood chatting to someone else, so he didn't notice them coming.

    Well, maybe. Not sure what the rules were on this 20 years ago. It was on a lead though. Point being, people shouldn't just assume it's ok to pet someone else's dog.

    Agree with that, but it's a bit 50/50 if it could bite people.

    Always taught my daughter to ask first as she's never had any fear.

    This whole trend of 'dabbing' and doing absurdly long handshakes that last for 10 minutes. See Spurs players do it after they score a goal/win a match and it drives me mental!

    Fat kids who don't have a medical condition, disgusts me. I don't mean a little bit of chubby, just actual obese.

    Going back to the dog theme. I hate the pricks that post endless pictures of their ugly fucking poxy rat dogs on social media, dressed up in all sorts of ridiculous dog clothes, including hoodies (I know, what the fuck does a dog want a hoodie for) proclaiming how gorgeous their baby is.
    A) it's not a fucking baby, it's a dog
    B) it's a glorified fucking rat
    C) dogs have fur, they don't need fucking clothes

    Ahh, that's better.
