There are just some things you can't do with a big dog...
« on: August 05, 2005, 11:06:06 am »
Or in my case it is... A couple of days ago, I put Marty and Alex in the shower with me because they needed a bath, well last night I thought" Hey, I did it with Marty and Alex, I can do it with Maggie!" No No NO NO NO NOOOOO, it does not work like that!! Oh, Maggie was just to smart for her own good last night! She figured out once that if you push on the glass door with your nose, it'll open! I had to hold the door shut with one hand and wash her with the other, didn't work out to good. She got out 3 times and shook every time! I am never doing that again, to much for me. I had the nasty mess to clean up and frankly there just wasn't enough room for Maggie and I, in the shower. :P

I was at Kinkos the other day while I was at the cutting board there was a  little mini-pinscher sleeping on the floor by the copier... fat chance you'll ever see Bear there!

I got mad when I saw two mini-somethings in a purse in Longs the other day. They were walking through the isles shopping like this was the norm....I doubt you  would ever see my 150 lb., hairy black, drooly dog shopping there with me huh?

Harley used to try and sit on my lap when we are in the car, yeah she comfy but I'm not face face gets squished in her back and I can't breath! Thankfully now she is happy in the back with her head out the window. She is not a lap dog!!

I did think of just walking him in the sotre and making my point about the double standard but then figured it was too much work. I would loose and if I got real mad it could get ugly. I just hate the double standard...grr rr............ .

Oh, that drives me CRAZY!  It always boils my blood that any dog small enough to be stuffed into a purse or a baby-carrier thing can go into a store, but my big dog can't. 

I always imagine what it would be like if I walked in with Ranger strapped to my chest, legs dragging on the ground, me all stooped over from the weight.  If anyone said anything to me, I would point at the little dogs and say "Well, if THEY can do it....."   ;D

SO Let's try this.  I'll train Lady to stand up and push a cart.  I'll get in the cart with a giant diaper one and a binky in my mouth.  She'll push me through the store as I pull a ton of stuff into the cart (just like I did to my mother) and then they'll have to let us in.

Lins, that is hilarious!  If you had a tantrum, would Lady give you a timeout?

Yes, my Photo-shop skills ARE amazing, aren't they?   ;D  You can all see I am sooooo busy at work today...   ;D

You know what else you can't do with a big dog...?  Let him act like a jerk.  I know we have all discussed this before, but how come people think it is cute when a tiny dog snaps and growls and tries to kill everything in its path?  We all know what would happen if OUR dogs acted like that....

Its totally obnoxious and a total double-standard.
