Boo little dog park

I've got a tiff with the little dog section of our local dog park. It seems like every time we go in there, someone is an uppity asshole about something. One time, Kylie and a pug puppy were playing, and they started play growling with each other, and the pug's owner freaked out and screamed at us to get Kylie off her dog. Another time, a guy that owned a beautiful sheltie, who was way too big for the "little dog" part, let the sheltie "herd" all the other dogs into a corner, barking and being obnoxious the whole time, and ruining play for all the other dogs. I can understand letting the sheltie do that for a little while, because that's what they do, but for an hour while the other dogs were obviously getting annoyed by it? Have some courtesy.
This was the final straw: Some guy in his fifties I would say who had a little brown mixed breed asked "Is she a full Boston? She looks like she's mixed with something else." I said "nope, she's a full bred Boston, she just has a mismarked head." The guy was like "oh" then bent down to pet Kylie and was like "Well, I know you must be mixed with something else because you just don't look like a purebred Boston to me." I was like who the hell are you to tell me what breed my dog is, ass!! But I just said "No, I have her papers." Seriously, Kylie looks nothing like a mix. She just has a half white head. I LOVE mixed breeds, and I'm not downing on them at all, but this guy pissed me off. Like you know anything about my dog.

Today we let Kylie play in the big dog area all day, as we have before, and she LOVED it. She LOVES running around playing with all the big dogs. I noticed everyone in there was really nice and loved Kylie, and no one was making rude comments about Kylie's markings or being like "OH NOES MY PRECIOUS LITTLE MALTIPOO IS GETTING PLAYED WITH AT A DOG PARK!!" I don't think I'll ever be going back to the little dog area, everyone's a jerk in there. Kylie is bored there anyway lol.

Anyone else have experiences with idiots in the little dog area? Ugh.
