Well, you confused me with that first long sentence, but I'll try to respond anyway. Aries is free to cross the street if she wishes. As she stated, her dog jumps on people. A big dog jumping on you us scary, I totally get that. But see, my dogs don't jump, they just keep walking. I don't think my dogs are angels and her dog is evil, but our dogs are different with different issues. Do I think she's misguided or foolish? Heck no! Her dog jumps on people! If I see people coming towards me and they don't act nervous, then I assume they're fine being near dogs. Like I've stated, my dogs don't jump, so we will pass each other and both go on our merry ways.
I live near several busy streets, and there is a sidewalk on only one side. I am not going to cross the street back and forth and risk getting one or some of us run over. I don't take my dogs near children's playgrounds, so that's not an issue. So I don't think it's right to tell me I'm very irresponsible and rude for not crossing the street (and endangering myself and my dogs), when I deal with the situations that Aries described by avoiding them altogether.
