Over the years I've told many people that dogs aren't allowed in the dog-free part of the park. Reactions have ranged from being ignored, through being abused, to being threatened. I had one 10-year-old boy follow me around shouting 'paedophile'.
These two, this morning, were different. Polite, contrite, and apologetic. They even called me 'Sir'.
But ... they had still walked past the sign saying 'No Dogs'. Do the signs need to be bigger?
