Mischa Keeps Her Bitch on a Tight Leash

Mischa Barton was spotted at a dog park in Los Angeles yesterday, where she and her little pooch were inseparable. In fact, she never let the bitch out of her arms!

Not sure if Barton was aware that these parks are designed to let your dogs run free, or if she was preventing the dog from being eaten by a pack of cavorting canines.

Hope the poor pug-lookin' pup didn't need to pee!
