Immediately after we entered the dog park, two very large dogs ran up and jumped on me. One of them punched my unborn child and the other nipped at my face. Then another dog charged up and full-on attacked Nugget. I had to rip the dog off of Nugget while simultaneously trying not to get bit, screaming "Stop it!", and attempting to get the two big dogs off of myself. It was a challenge and took a while because, you know, I'm six months pregnant.
When I finally managed to restore some sanity to the group of dogs, I looked up, wondering where the dog owners were and why they hadn't done a $&*# thing about what had just happened. They were all standing in a circle, discussing how infuriating it was when people brought their kids to the dog park.
"Like just the other day," one woman was saying, "someone brought in their little boy and my dog knocked him down THREE TIMES!"
"You know what you should do," another woman responded. "You should call the police and tell them that those people are endangering their children for bringing them in here."
"That's a good idea," the first woman agreed. "I'll do that next time."
Yes, yes, because when your dog knocks down a toddler THREE TIMES, you should definitely call the police on his parents. I mean, those people are so irresponsible. Seriously, control your children.
Nugget and I fought our way to the exit and left, covered in mud and murderous thoughts.
