It's not so much a dog's poor behavior that bugs the fuck outa me - the dog's being a dog. What grates on the conservative bits of me soul is the human who insists on off-loading some of his responsibility for that dog's behavior onto everybody else. Anybody else actually.
Your dog is not a fashion accessory. And it's not furniture - it's not part of the decor intended to round out some idiotic fantasy image of American family life.
Have some respect for yourself and for your neighbors and for the dog - take the whole thing seriously enough to make the effort to train the dog properly.
You own the dog. You own the responsibility - all of it.
