And we wonder why we have all these bite/attacks that occur. Is this not a lawsuit waiting to happen against the bus company if the dog attacks someone? What about other people that let their dogs roam? Why is this allowed. We are so crazy as a society that we actually look at this as a positive. So many things that could go wrong here and completely irresponsible behavior. Yes, dog is smart for a dog. So what. That's not the point. Totally idiotic behavior by the owner
Perhaps somewhere in the long list of responses someone already pointed this out. I think the dog is smart because it's owner is a smoker and the dog seemingly wants to distance itself from said owner which probably subjects it to inhaling carcinogens but comes back to be fed. If that dog could talk it may simply say, "I got to get some fresh air away from my owner, so I'll go strut my stuff at the dog park"

I attended Cornell University. By the terms of a trust, dogs were to roam free on campus.

I distinctly remember getting into an elevator in my dormitory. There was a large Great Dane there. My first thought was "O.K. maybe I wasn't meant to survive to graduation." Surprisingly, given the vicious nature of that breed, it licked my hand. I saw examples of equally ferocious breeds such as golden retrievers behaving gently as well.

Great Danes have a vicious nature?? I didn't know that! I have interacted with two in my life, both giant lap dogs.

I am guessing they are being facetious, as the next sentence they referenced golden retrievers as "ferocious". (dear god, I HOPE they were being facetious)

The ones I see look vicious, the way their tails slash back and forth. And when a Great Dane puts its paws up on your shoulders...

By attacking the driver and forcing itself onto the bus?

Ah, yes, Raiderman, I see now the facetiousness in that person's post. I hope it was joking too.

Ha, ha, jbgusa. You mean put the paws on your shoulders while you are flat on your back, right?

I could never go over my friend's house without having Shilo up on my lap! He loved to kiss me to death too. How I miss that giant baby. He went to the Rainbow Bridge.
