Look, my dog currently has stitches and can't be playing with your hyperactive dog who is "only being friendly!" He is also kind of a neurotic cattle dog, so he isn't able to take a crap without walking a mile or so first, kind of like how I depend on that first cup of coffee to jumpstart things.
All I ask is that you finish walking down the hill to the off leash dog park instead of monopolizing the regular on-leash part of the park with your simultaneous game of chuck-it fetch (the best way to have as little involvement in your dog's fun as possible) and hour long phone call. There is literally nowhere left for us to go walking since every inch of this neighborhood is swarming with freerange "friendly" dogs (who need to learn a thing or two about personal space) and their offleash human assholes.
