I love my freaking dog. Anyone who knows me, knows this. I'm sure you love yours dearly too. So, PLEASE, put your dog on a leash when you're walking around in public. I realize your dog is probably really well trained and you don't think it will ever leave your side, BUT IT'S A DOG. Dogs are unpredictable, well, because THEY'RE DOGS.
Have you ever seen your dog freaked by a loud sound or lunge at another animal? Or how about if some idiot stranger sticks his hand or face near your hound and gets bitten? What the hell are you going to do then, when your pup gets killed because it runs into traffic or gets put down because it sunk its teeth into little Jimmy's eyeball? So, PLEASE, leash your dog. Oh yeah, and it's the fucking law.
