    I agree with skiguy, we should probably get rid of most laws (e.g. murder, theft, arson, etc...) because honestly, those infractions aren't committed by 90% of the population.

    I hope you are being sarcastic because otherwise you are misinterpreting what I was trying to infer. All I was inferring was that as much as a lot of us have had some not so nice experiences with dogs on the trail there are awesome dogs out there. I agree there should be plenty of rules for canines. I also think it is important to understand that these rules are not the same everywhere. Unfortunately this has always been a heated topic of debate here and probably always will be. Personally I try to keep an open mind and understand that the rules are different depending upon where you hike. I also try to keep an open mind and be positive about the situation when I encounter canines on the trail.

    Sorry for the snark, I clearly misinterpreted.

    I'm in the same camp, dogs are awesome, the owners are usually the issue :-)
