Just curious peoples opinions on walking dogs in the cemetary. Personally i walk mine there. Its quite, less people ect. Of course i pick up after my dog, I am respectful and she is leashed. But i have been told it could be considered as disrespectful to the deceased and mourners. So it got me thinking.Whats your opinion?

you really have no other place to take your dog? a cemetary isn't for that whether the dog is quiet or not. anywhere in houston will have safe enough streets to take him

it could be seen as disrespectful because even though you pick it up, you are still using people's final resting places as your dog's bathroom. I personally have nothing against it but allot of people might.

No - it is disrespectful to the deceased and their family members. Agree that while you are disrespectful, people never intended for their loved ones graves to be a restroom.

Best. Response. Ever

Seriously, no, that is kind of tacky. I wouldn't want a dog hiking its leg on my dearly departed's headstone.

That's pretty disrespectful. A cemetery is not a place to take your dog for a stroll. It would be completely different if you went there to visit a loved one and brought your dog with you to comfort you. There are so many other places you can take your dog.
