Never again

I am so sick to my stomach right now. We decided for the first time of taking the trailer out we were just going to the Newport News Park up the road. Just to see how everything works. We took the dogs of course.
We set up Grumpy went to take a nap and I sat outside with the dogs tied to a tree - working. After Grumpy got up and and took the pups for a walk while I made dinner he hooked up Mac to the post near the front of the space. Well some point later some guy with a pitbull walked by and his dog went after Mac - there was some growling but nothing serious. We just moved her leash further back. After dinner Grumpy ran out to get some stuff for breakfast while I was working and dogs were outside on their leashes. I saw an expedition pull up and thought is was Grumpy then someone knocked on the trailer. At which point Mac barked as she went up to the person (as close as she could with the leash) and all I hear is the guy screaming I am going to shoot your dog. I get out and its a park ranger - he again says he will shoot her as she is deadly and dangerous!!! This was with her leaning at me - not even trying to get to him!!!!! He said I better do something about her or we get thrown out - he wasn't messing with this and would just shoot her. The guy with pitbull had gone up to the ranger station and reported the incident which is what the Ranger came to check out.

I can not tell you how upset I am. I mean all he had to say was - unless your outside don't leave to dogs out - or be sure to hook them up further away from the street - but the scream he will shoot my dog is so out of line. If it wasn't to dark I would pack up right now and leave. Obviously we will NEVER come here again EVER. Grumpy said he will talk to them on the way out tomorrow - he said it was probably a good thing he wasn't here as he'd end up in a fight with the guy. So but now I am going to be paranoid - I told Grumpy I wanted to get them mussles so everyone can see they can't bite. I mean we bought the trailer so we could take them with us not to leave them at home. I don't like the idea of mussling them but I would never forgive myself if someone shot one of them or we had to put them down because something happend.

Jin - we were just here for the night so once its light we are going home.

You know all she did was act just like Bean when someone comes up to visit. She didn't growl try to go after the ranger (or the dog earlier) all she did was bark

Holy crap Katy- thats fargin ridiculous!!! I reckon you find somewhere else to go, and report the incident to them. I'm sorry the wanker had to go and spoil everything for you.

Sorry you had a bad experience. I think it was unusual. Most folks we came across while camping were always very nice, including the park rangers.

Rough first time out, but don't give up!

Angel - we did tell the day time people who were like we can't believe that!!!

Phos - we are going to try again this weekend just somewhere else
