Bitch

In nearby Prestatyn, the seaside promenade is backed in part by a succession of small car parks. As I walked the dogs up to Barkby beach! I noticed a large staffy- type dog running like a mad Alec with a ball on a rope around a parked car. in the car was the dog's owner, who was on a mobile phone. the woman was also eating a large packet of crisps, and would only stop chomping when the dog brought the ball back to her to be thrown across the car park.
I wondered if the young woman was disabled, but after seeing her heaving herself out from behind the wheel to retrieve some more goodies from a carrier bag from her hatchback, I concluded that she was just lazy.
Throwing a ball around a car park, to me, is not really walking your dog.
To be fair, her dog was a friendly sort, who bounced over the car park wall and ran amongst the promenade walkers and cyclists is a jaunty manner. But , I must admit, the fact that she was happy to let a potentially aggressive dog run around unsupervised , did irk me somewhat..
And I am very easily irked.
Anyhow we walked along the promenade out of harms way then retraced our  steps back to the where I had parked the berlingo. As we passed the car park ! I noticed that the lazy dog owner was still sat eating in her car as her dog bounced all over the promenade.
I thought about  this for a moment then
I motioned to the woman and called out a friendly " your dog has just crapped down the promenade steps" as I pointed to a spot 50 yards away.
The woman sighed heavily and reaching for the poo bags started to get out of her car

The dog hadn't crapped by the way

I just wanted to see the  lazy cow  move her fat arse from behind the steering wheel
Hey ho

  1. Oh John....you didn't!!!!! Good for you. If you can't walk your dog properly you shouldn't have one at all.

  2. ooh.... that's evil .... but so right!! If you can't walk your pooch you shouldn't have one.
    I'd have loved to see her face when she found out her dog hadn't crapped!

  7. I feel sorry for the dog. At least she realised HE needs exercise. Too bad she didn't feel up to joining him. I'm sure he'd have loved it.

  8. Excellent. Well done you :)

  9. Hee hee, The F*ckwit's idea of walking our dog was to take him and one of the kids in the car to a park further away - but not out of walking distance - and sit on a bench whilst the kid walked the dog. Bless him, he said he was trying to be helpful. (Although it was the park someone he had a 'thing' for after walked her puppy in). idiot.

    PS - was the dog owner a Secret Eater or perhaps her family wonders why she isn't losing weight when she ahem exercised the dog.

    1. sorry, typing in the dark....take out the excess 'after' in the bracketed sentence.

      no?
      okay then.

  11. Oh John I like the 'irked easily' comment...made me smile.
    Have you seen a you tube 'Doreens story'? ...very funny.

  12. You are so bad and just as funny :)

  14. I'm grateful the dog didn't get into any trouble. I would never let Franklin and Harper run around like that.

    Love,

  15. Haha, I like that, well done. As for being easil irked (what a lovely choice of words!) I too seem to be more easily and more frequently irked these days. Sign of the times, or maybe just my age. What irks me (to the point of rage!) are the wankers who exercise their unfortunate animals from a bicycle, so the dog is forced to run full out for ages. I've even seen someone driving their car slowly along the road while their dog ran after them. What is wrong with people?

  16. I've had a rotten gastric virus all week and had legs like jelly and felt dizzy. But I've still taken our two bouncy dogs out for a decent walk every day, even in the pouring rain!
    Well done John!

  17. What could you have done to the car while she was heaving her way down the promenade? I have some ideas...

  18. Good man, I must remember that one for the future. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  19. What a wonderful idea, John!

  20. She's eating herself into a disability. There's a lot of that.

  21. At least she was prepared to pick up after her dog. Last time I told someone that her dog needed picking up after the woman told me to f*** off as she wasn't going to do such a gross thing!

  23. I certainly don't blame you for being annoyed. Good on you, John. :-)

  25. Brilliant. Though I am actually surprised she got up to deal with the problem. Too many lazy oxygen thieves here don't bother. Yes it is a legal obligation, but not well enforced. Laziness too often rules.

  26. Ah, the great obese of the western world. I expect someone had told her that having a dog would help her lose weight!!!

    1. Exactly my first thought, C.M. What's the betting that the motivation why she got the dog was that it would 'make' her take exercise? Hah!

  27. Sometimes I really despair of human/woman/mankind, especially with the news from Edinburgh this morning. What's happening to the world as we knew it?

  28. From what I've seen very few dog-owners seem to know that dogs are supposed to be on leads in public places. Or if they do know it they think that their dog is an exception to the rule and nobody will mind as long as they shout out "He's only being friendly" as you wipe the muddy paw prints off your clothes.

  29. not very nice... but then again, you're only human, just like the rest of us, and that woman.

    1. agree, not nice at all. we can't assume to know about another and then judge with facts unknown.

  30. In the unlikely event that she sees you again and recognises you your life will hardly be worth living. Just imagine having a huge bulldozer charging at you! Lucky that you will certainly be able to run faster than she can waddle.

  31. Way to go John! Nice one. I can't understand why some people own a dog in the first place.

  32. There are so many angles to your narrative and some rather ghastly comments in its wake I won't get my ruler and geometry set out.

    I don't have a dog, I don't have a car, I am not fat and all the walking needed I do by myself. Unless, of course, I break a leg.

  33. Some dog owners don't realize that owning a dog is a responsibility and not a hobby...

  34. Hmmm....I think it's been nearly a month since Rosie had a proper walk. I am well on my way to the "fat lazy" part of your cartoon header. Bless her, she will never give up on making me move my ass off the couch, though. (Don't worry, I'm just about to find my shoes and head to the park!)

  36. This reminds me of my visit to Kerry in Sept, took a short drive to Kells a lovely little spot with a quay and a small beach. Boy and I had the beach to ourselves, till a little terrier (part Jack) came down to attack Boy. Boy, being a terrier too was giving as good as he got, so I separated them and put my Boy on the lead. Only other folk about were a few people in a few cars up by the quay. After my walk, I got back to my car after 40 mins I noticed a little car with an older lady in it, enjoying a fag and sipping at a cup. The little terrier was going back and fore to the car, more or less being ignored poor thing. I was vexed. Sitting there whilst her dog attacked others. She then got out, and walked, in a v unsteady manner to the recycling point at the back of the car park. I didnt judge her, many health problems can affect an older persons gait - but she definitely threw in two empty wine bottles before tottering back. When she got back to the car, she stood by her open door and pee'd loudly and profusely!!! I wrestled with my conscience. I stopped to talk to her from my car, and made polite conversation during which i established she lived about 3/4 mile up the road, and (humourously) told her my dog and hers would have both needed vet treatment had I not separated them. She was very refined but evidently pissed! I asked v v nicely could I not run her and her dog home and she told me to feck myself! Lesson learned.

  37. I find this happens in the actual dogpark too. People are more concerned to gossip and drink their coffee than pay attention to their dogs. Sad really. I let my dog of his lead but always follow him around the park. I want to make sure he's not getting into and/or causing trouble. Plus, even though he's only 7 months old, he's big and black and that freaks some people out.
