Bus Depot.

As I was waiting at the bus depot in Basingstoke, I realised I had to wait an hour for the next bus...which was fair enough.

As the minutes went by, I needed to take a wee, well, the thing was I had jack my dog with me, they arenít allowed in the enclosed centre.

So I tied him up to the seat, said to him Iíll be back in a minute.

Well to my horror on my return there was some guy in uniform with a walkie talkie, about to take my dog away.

One of the bus drivers would you believe ,told this guy that he watched me abandon my dog,..they stand around the bus depot waiting to board their bus for work.

I said to the guy is everything ok, not realising what was going on, he said yes and said no more..

The bus driver how ever started slating me for abandoning my dog...

I had no choice but to tell him that I needed a wee , he then went on to say, you must have done your shopping as well...

It just goes to show how sometimes weíre not tuned in to what others see who are watching us, unbeknown to us.

I was very lucky because if I had been a few minutes later, he would have taken him to the dog pound.

My point is, be careful where you leave your dog.

Re: Bus Depot.

Perhaps you could learn how to have a wee against a lamp post Pauline. Let your dog teach you a new trick.

Suspect there'd be a few more people on their walkie talkies if you did

Re: Bus Depot.

Sorry Pauline. Wasn’t there someone around that you could have asked to watch over your Jack for a few minutes?

I’m certain you felt like a criminal - men have it so much easier than us ladies…

To be honest I didnít think about it, because I did the same thing two weeks back.

The thing was as well, this bus driver was slating me in front of a whole load of passengers waiting for their bus.

I have to be honest i gave it to him with both barrels, because he wouldnít shut up...I had already told him I had to go for a wee.

He did shut up ,when I told him to mind his own business as loudly as he was slating me.....he looked pretty shocked.

It hurt me because I love my dog and would never abandon him.

Re: Bus Depot.

Next time...I’m going to have a board with a sign written on it.

Explaining I have gone to the toilet, that was a close shave this morning...don’t want to experience that again.

Re: Bus Depot.

You could take Jack out before you go to the shops, maybe? Even leaving him outside a shop while you pop in for a minute can be a mistake these days. I leave mine in the house when I go out, she is fine for a couple of hours.

It was me who needed the wee Pixie,....i was travelling back home from my sons in Newbury, first bus went to Basingstoke bus station, I caught the 9.40am from Newbury, when it reached Basingstoke,I had to wait a while for the 11.40 to my destination in Hampshire.

I was desperate for a wee, so went into the indoor centre where I believe dogs arenít allowed , you are certainly right about it being a mistake leaving them tied up alone.

I was extremely lucky that this guy didnít take him....it was a good lesson.

That bus driver didnít imo be so rude..but then I think,he may have seen a few dogs abandoned at the station....

It was the way he communicated to me, he was slating me ,before I even had time to explain....telling me I had abandoned my dog.....
