Dog strollers? What about dogs in purses/bags?
Creepy creepy creepy.
I also think it's rude when people assume everyone likes dogs, and expects you to be comfortable when all of a sudden a dog emerges out of the depths of its stroller and starts yapping and growling. Ugh.
Not cute. Not creepy. Just stupid. It's a DOG not a toy or a person.
Not creepy... but just plain weird. Friday we were at Canada Day festivities and there was an elderly lady pushing a dog in a pink dog stroller. Just... odd. Dogs aren't meant to be in strollers. Whenever I have seen it, it seems to be little old ladies doing it rather than our generation/younger.
I'm going to be slammed for this but I'm on meds so I could care less, lol.
I think it can even be abusive/neglect. Dogs need to walk. They have to travel and move. Thye have to socialize. They were not meant to be carried around and confined in small spaces. They were not meant to be kept behind closed doors or closed bags or closed strollers.
Now, not everyone who uses a dog bag or stroller is abusing their dog. I'm talking about people who only travel with their dog like that, which I see quite often. They think they are protecting their dogs and treat them like little people and in reality they are only harming them. They become antisocial, mean, aggressive, animals who don;t know how to behave like a dog. Pit bulls get a horrible wrap but the majority of aggresive dogs are little ones.
I think it is just plain weird. A little bit creepy.
And I hate when people bring dogs into places that dogs should not be. They are still animals....
It is misplaced affection or something.

In general I think it's just silly. But there are "good" reasons why someone might use a stroller, and unless you ask them or know them, you may not know what that reason is. My parent's had a dog that was very old and couldn't walk without being in a lot of pain, but she still LOVED to be outside. So my mother would take her for walks in the stroller. The dog was happy because she got fresh air, but didn't have to walk and be in pain. Sort of like a wheelchair. But I do agree that most people use them becuase they think it's "cute" and that's just weird/wrong to me. They are dogs, they LOVE to walk/run.
