Dogs, dogs, dogs

I was watching Animal Planet a bit last week, and there was the cutest little puppy who was brought into the vet’s office. The thing is, though, that I don’t like dogs. I do not really understand people who do. They annoy me. They are great to visit, but having one live with me? Oh hell no. Been there, done that, never again. I suppose if I had a husband with a dog I might just deal with it, but left up to me, no.

Someone on a forum was talking about some dog that was being given to a shelter and blah blah blah wah wah, I just flat out didn’t care. The dog was ugly, not hers, and I just plum didn’t see the big deal. I admit I only like cute lapdogs that can fit in a purse, because they are, you know, cute.

On the other hand my dad can’t understand why I love cats so much. So I suppose all things are relative. Upon reflection I think obsessive pet owners are what has put me off the whole pet experience. That, and I’m not really in the mood to pet-proof my home environment.

Whee, pet rants.

  1. Hi !!!

    You know what Marie, I dislike dogs too… I admit they are loyal and can be true friends, but they smell disgusting, you have to bathe them and then they have a knack to make a big mess anywhere they live !!!

    I sometimes laugh when I see people in a park nearby with their dogs, as they have to pick up the you-know-what because dogs, unlike cats, like to do their thing whenever they want, wherever they are…

    Also, many times it happens to me that I’m just walking peacefully in the streets here in Pitahayas (kind of gated community where I live) and then, all of a sudden, some stupid dog in a garden barks and roars at me with such violence that I jump in surprise and fear !!!

    If there is a good fence, I like to show my teeth to the dog (I don’t know why, but it makes them go mad) and I also roar back, sometimes… I do it very good, something like a furious cat :p

    I’ll send you some pictures of Jerry, my tabby cat, I think you’ll like him 🙂

  2. Yesss…. I think cats are smarter and cleaner than dogs. Not to mention better looking. I didn’t have to train my grandma’s cat, Raider, she just figured out on her own to use the litter box. I also like how cats can entertain themselves, while dogs want you to do everything for them.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who dislikes those animals.

  3. Jerry pictures sent !!!

    Oh, when Jerry had just arrived at our home (8 weeks old) he had a little problem with the litter box, because in the pet shop they used newspapers as litter, and so poor little Jerry seeked newspapers 😛

    So, we only had to put some pieces of newspaper in the litter box and he learned immediately…

    Cats have a better selfsteem than dogs, and that’s why they don’t need to perform feats and stuff for us to feel better with themselves 🙂
