I'll Kill You- With Kisses

This is a rant. And I am not going to be specific laugh out loud
So the other day I am grocery shopping when I see a girl walk up with a stroller. I looked inside the stroller to see a little dog. And at a grocery store! its bad enough they go to regular stores and malls that say no dogs allowed but in a grocery store? Come on people...I told the lady 'No dogs allowed and that looks like a dog to me' It got me mad. I think some little dog owners think because their dog is small it doesn't count as a dog. Newsflash, Duh yes it doesbig laugh And, another thing. [No offense to all the awesome little guys out there] My grandma has a little dog. And he jumps up on me and mounts me and gets into garbage, never stops barking, pees in the house, is aggressive to children and all those things. And one day I was going to sit on the couch and he was there and I told him to move but he wouldn't. So I tried to grab his collar and he snapped at me. I took it as a threat and grabbed his scruff of the neck and said NO. I think I scared the crap out of him because my grandma doesn't give him disipline what so ever. He respects me a lot. Sometimes he will growl at me and I will tell him who is boss[ And no, Not by beating the crap out of himbig laughI never hit dogs]
It just gets me mad and I hope no one takes this post offenseivlyto their dog

Awesome little dog herewave I observe the same rules of the house as my larger furblings.

Mom only dresses me for winter weather when we go for hikes...cuz I don't like to be left out of any pack activity. People forget we need exercise too...if not more than our bigger counterparts. way to go A well exercised dog is usually a well behaved dog.

Boundries and limitations are important for K-9's and humans wink of all ages.

Dahlia's best bud is a little dog, and he's great. The only dogs that should be allowed in a grocery store are service dogs, period. Miss D is 30 lbs, and the best advice I got when I recieved her was "don't let her become an annoying, unruly dog that people hate!" Most folks forget that no matter what the size, undisciplined dogs are a royal pain. I have a friend with a 5 lb., unnamed breed dog that they don't socialize or discipline...because it's tiny. He's a pain, violates their cat, granddaughters, and they think it's funny 'cause he's cute. shock Tried to point out the basics, but got cranky response....oh well, they have to live with him, not me.....shrug

Sometimes, I just don't get it.

Big dog owners can come on these dog sites and rant about little dog owners all day. But, when we little dog owners do the same thing about big dog owners... our posts get marked as spam or get flagged as rude and inapropriate.


I'm posting as Cinnamon so you'll know that I know BOTH sides of the war. wink

But we always need to remember its never the dogs fault....Its irresponsible or uneducated owners that do these things.

No matter if its a un diciplined dog or an illeagle shopping spree...

Don't think that little dogs are always that way. Because they're not always. I agree people do humanize their little dogs waaaaay to much, but I don't really like it when people say all these bad things about little dogs. (I am an owner of three chihuahuas and two big dogs.) I love them both.

Amen to that Chanel!

Can we go now?!

I see it on both sides of the fence (so to speak). I see big dogs off leash the most and I see little dogs offensive behavior being ignored the most. Both irk me, but "Whatcha gonna do?!" It's the owners of those few (big and small) that make bad names and bad memories for the owners of the rest. It's also the irresponsible few who cause stupid dog restriction laws to be so in demand. But, again, "Whatcha gonna do?!"
