As I was running through our neighborhood today, I was briefly chased by a ferocious teacup poodle (okay, maybe not so ferocious, but a barker none the less). Owning three dogs who were only that size for about 1 week, little dogs do not bother me, but it does bother me that people do not keep their dogs on a leash. We have done a better job of socializing Ivy, so I typically am not worried about her attacking a dog that comes up to her, but it annoys me that our walks are interrupted because some people chose not to control their dogs.
It is funny, though, to watch the little dogs come running up to us barking their little hearts out. Ivy just stands there and gives them a funny look. I wonder what goes through their little minds.
