Thank YOU! This would drive me nuts, especially when the parents let their kids feed the dogs human food. Don't get me started on how even THREE gates are not fool proof. ;)

Oh yeah? Says who? Because that doesn't look like an official parks dept sign to me. Don't like your dog being pet by unknown dog-less individuals? Don't bring them to the dog-run!

Dog owners should be required to pay an extra tax to cover the cost of the dog runs (which renders the space they occupy useless to everyone else - not to mention unbelievably disgusting), and to cover the cost of a sanitation dept program whereby the sidewalks will be hosed down on a regular basis.

Oh, what's that you say? You always clean up your dog? That's nice. How about the "remnants" left behind on the sidewalk itself? Not so much, right? Or, check this out: how about Rover eats who-knows-what at the dog run, takes a nice juicy diarrhea doodie on the sidewalk which you then clean up by smearing it across the sidewalk? The rest of us have to walk through that shit - literally.

I agree with Anon 11:10 AM. It's not YOUR park. It's everyone's.

That should be a comma after "Dog," not a period.

If you don't want a stranger petting your dog, that's your right. However, you should be able to enter the dog park if you don't have a dog. It is, afterall, a public park. That said, the park smells so bad sometimes, I'm not sure why you'd want to.

during his reign, mao ze dong outlawed all pets on account of them being too bougie

guess i can understand where all the anti-dog run or "public access" dog run types are coming from but could we please then say the same thing about the multiple and various playgrounds and swimming pool in the park where it's no kids without an adult and no adults without kids? can we open those up for petting zoos too or would that be in poor taste not to mention against the law and poor public health policy.

Sooo....by the sign, it looks as if they are saying no dogs allowed, period! (no pun intended)

Dear cranky dog owner sign maker:

Can I pet you instead?

Signed,
People that like dogs, even yours.

Screw that. I like to wander over there and watch the numb dogs do numb dog stuff. If I want to sit my lonely ass on a bench and stare at dogs, Imma do it.

I am in there all the time hanging out with my friends who have dogs and petting some of the dogs I used to walk when i was a dog walker and it reminds me of when I used to take my dog Junior there who died of cancer so F whoever made this sign. He/She is lucky people stopped pooping in there, Plus, now they allow toys in there and balls? they should worry about that. How many pit bull fights over a toy have I seen since they started doing this? Too many to count. And no, it's not just the pits either. The runs were separated over a bigger dog breaking the neck of a smaller dog. And it was all fine after they made a small dog run. but HEY BRING YOUR DOGS FAVORITE TOY WITH YOU THAT THEY ARE REALLY POSSESSIVE ABOUT I AM SURE IT WILL BE FINE! Heh. Maybe I will that into a sign.
