Workmate said she took her dog to a park yesterday. It is a "leads only" park. Her dog is a medium sized female, this guy had a large dog which was off the lead.

The guy said "Is your dog fixed?" My friend said "Yes"
The guy said "just checking because he rapes other dogs"



Is that OFF?  wacko.gif

My workmate and I both think there is wrong on so many levels with this story but I think the use of the work rape was the worst offense.

Guy is a tool. BTW, about mid-20's.


WDYT?

Yes, it's off.  

Sounds like he was ever so proud of his studly dog.  Presumably it represents his own personality.  If she sees him again she should use a pooper scooper on him and drop him where he belongs.

Ugg totally off. He could have worded it like "just letting you know, my dog is very very friendly with others". I'd also tell him to get his dog leashed. What a tool.

That's just ..wrong. Why would you say something like that to a total stranger?

Honestly, I'd have a bigger issue with him having a dog off leash in a park where dogs are meant to be on leash, and the fact he presumably hasn't had his dog fixed and sounds like a douche canoe than I would with the use of the word rape.

Friends said the dog (one of those Am staff, but I didn't want to say the name less I am called a HAYTER of certain breeds), had a very large set of testicles swinging in the breeze as well so maybe too guy lives out his fantasies through his dog.

Barf.

He was too course in his language but that is too twee PP.. he wasn't warning her that his dog was possibly going to play with her dog he was warning her that his dog was probably going to mount it!

Although I guess we should give the foul mouthed idiot some kudos for warning people that his off leash dog was complete?

Gross.

I would have left immediately, no way would I stay within ten foot of an idiot like that! its not only the dog I'd be worried about!

The guy just sounds like he has a small vocabulary. Poor choice of words on his part.

#10 Cranky Kitten

Posted 08 November 2012 - 11:08 AM

Err, no that's not being precious - the guy sounds like a complete toss. Depending on my mood I'd be inclined to ask the obvious question of him "well why isn't he on a lead so you can control him then?"

Disgusting choice of words.

This.  But then we referring to my dog as raping my sisters dog and my mums dog, because that is what he is doing, he continues even though the dogs may try to bite him while he is doing it. (He was fixed by his second owner but we think this was perhaps too late, the poor boy doesn't even get his lipstick out just mounts them and goes for it) I do warn people that he will take advantage of their dog because I find that much less off then hump your dog when in public. In our house his nickname may or may not be "humping harvey"

But then by so many EB members I am considered a bogan so meh.

This. But TBH, I do find the use of the word rape, as he is presumably condoning this behaviour through the no leash and no fixing,  pretty bloody offensive in any case.

At least he provided her with the perfect segue to ask him to put the dog on a leash.

#16 Chelli

I find that choice of words really off

#17 Agnodice the Feral

Posted 08 November 2012 - 11:51 AM

Depends if he was proud of it or not. If it was just a statement then whatever. People express all sorts of things 'badly' depending on their background, education, socioeconomic position etc. It's not like he was saying rape was ok or anything, he was just describing his dogs behaviour. I tend not to judge people's expression by my own middle class standards of 'polite'.

#19 ThatsNotMyName

Posted 08 November 2012 - 12:23 PM

I don't think it's a matter of better taste or not, that's not how attacks work.

Very poor choice of words & lack of lead action. Totally off.

#20 icekool

Posted 08 November 2012 - 12:31 PM

Not a good description but sounds like he wanted to be honest and up front b4 other owners go off at him. Though not precious at all.

For him to use that word, sounds to me that he may have mentioned it politely and owners didn't quite understand and probably got angry with his dog.

I am more offended that his dog was "OFF leash" in an "LEAD ONLY" park.


#21 LookMumNoHands

Posted 08 November 2012 - 12:35 PM

I wonder what he would've done if your friend had said no?

I not only think the choice of word is off (but I'm precious on the whole 'R' topic anyway), I also think that any person who doesn't get their dogs fixed is off. Unless they are a breeder or offer a stud service.

My ex BIL refuses to get his male dogs fixed, because he could never do it to them. He loves the idea of having a 'manly' dog with a big set of balls on display. I just think he's a w*n*er.

Rape isn't a matter of taste.

Repulsive, OP.

#23 unicorn

Posted 08 November 2012 - 01:23 PM

It does sound off but I guess if his dog is humping other dogs when they aren't receptive to him then it is technically rape is it not?  The neighbour has  a bull that rapes his cows and will knock down fences to get to them, he causes serious damage if he gets in amongst them. He didn't have to be so blunt in his wording though.

Yes a good opportunity to say something to him about not having his dog on a leash.
