If you can't be bothered to train it...

While this applies to people considering parenthood, too, for this post I am talking about dog owners.  I have taken up running.  I’m training, it’s not easy, and I don’t like it.  I have a specific route mapped out through the wooded trails in my area, and right now I’m trying to go a little further along before I turn around each day.  I run past a lot of the same people every run, most of them with dogs.  I see one elderly lady nearly every single day with a giant german shepherd.  The first time I saw them, I was apprehensive, thinking, I’m way too out-of-shape to outrun a shepherd.  However, as I nervously neared, the large dog aggressively... stopped walking and sat down.  He is a well trained dog.  I have since said to the lady (panted, really, since I’m running), “I love how well-trained your dog is - that is wonderful!”
