To the ignorant dumbass who didn't have his two small dogs on a leash at Park de los Vaqueros in Placentia one morning: You say you walk your dogs without a leash because you "live close by"? And when you let your dogs scare people such as my dad, and I told you that you must always have your dogs on a leash, you said, "Oh, not in this area." Check the OC pet laws (OCCO 4-1-45). It's the law. Don't threaten me with "I'll bring my other dog." Ooooh! Yes, by all means, go get your wife—as long as she's on a leash.
