Default Poor dogs

So we are new here but have visited a few times and have seen this time after time. We were in brownwood tonight and there were lots og people for whatever was going on down there and there are stupid dog owners there with their poor dogs. First its loud, 2nd its hot, they have a fur coat, 3rd tons of people, 4th hot cement and not 1 of them had water for their animals. I love my dogs enough to leave them home were they will be comfortable. I feel sorry for the dogs and when i say something to the owner about water for the dog they look like im the stupid one.

I think it's stupid too. I took my dog many years ago one time to LSL. He was in a stroller with a water dish. He didn't enjoy it a bit.

WELCOME and don't worry. Everybody loves their dogs here as it's always a designer dog show around town. Dogs are #1 (well, #2 also ). How many dog bakeries are there vs people bakeries? Dogs must be like people because very often there are cute little dogs with ribbons, skirts, boots and even sunglasses sitting their cute little butts ON the tables in front of Starbucks at LSL where lots of us actually use the table for food. They get driven around in baby carriages that cost as much as a semester in college. Last year there even was a pig on a leash at Brownwood. Likely more dogs than people. No one mistreats dogs here.

LOL about the stroller I can just visualize it ... I kept the baby carrier I used for my daughters as babies for my Welshie... only used it when he got very old but still wanted to go to the nearby park and couldn’t make it back home.

When I bring my dog anywhere I have water and a bowl. Many of the vendors and store owners have bowls of water out for the dogs. The pavement was not hot yesterday afternoon. M dog was groomed at Brownwood yesterday. I walked him around the square he was not panting or in any type of distress.

Your dog does NOT like being in the squares, no more than he/she likes wearing clothes. Your dog does like being with YOU, but I doubt if he/she is thrilled about being in crowds. Also, do you really want strangers petting your dog? They may have a cold, the flu, whatever..

My dog is very happy in the Squares and never wears clothes. If it is crowded I pick him up and carry him. Dogs can not catch a cold or flu from a human.

Florida's weather IMHO..Is exposing pets to an inhumane environment

I'm pretty sure my dog can go a couple of hours without water. Sometimes at home I even put them (gasp) outside in the Florida sun. I have 2 spoiled Scotties and treat them well but I do realize that being with me in a public environment for an hour or two is OK.

My two cents is, that it is the owners who are parading and looking for attenion, not the dogs!
