In the spirit of ongoing, dog-loving, fun...
I love when dog owners get all lovey dovey with their canine friends. They pet, kiss, hug, their little furry bundles of joy. Personally, it grosses me out. I mean, yuck! They're beasts! They do nasty things on a regular, constant basis, then you want to hug them? kiss them? let them lick your face? Oh man....no thanks!
On various instances at the homes of many different friends, their dog will jump up on me in search of the same affection their master's give them. I reserve the right to shove them off in such a way that they never want attention from mean ole' Tony again! I won't abuse them, just mark my territory- in a much more civilized way than they do- a clear and decisive tone coupled with a memorable, firm, stiff arm (then a quick break for some hand sanitizer).
Then, to top it off, the dog will lick my poor, short, defenseless children. The dog owner will usually chuckle and say something like- "oh my...isn't that cute...I hope you don't mind?" Do I mind? Are you serious? You don't find that nasty? You better believe I mind! You might as well stick my kid's head in a toilet or make them eat some two-day old, festering chunk of meat out the garbage can. It's seriously foul! The above picture states the honest truth.
I can't wait to hear the responses to this!
