Cant stant doggs.. Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Sunshine it is very easy, DON'T DATE A PERSON WITH PETS!!!!

Not hard, when getting to know ya chat happens, ask about pets... If she has one cut it off, and go on to the next person...

My SO does NOT like pets, however I have had my Doxie for 11 yrs, she is dying of breast cancer, but still has pep, and is probably not going to die in the next mo or two...

He has learned to really enjoy her, and in fact puts up a protest if I send her over to my ex spouses house...

HOWEVER you have voiced a strong dislike for pets, so don't date women with pets, there are a LOT of women that don't have pets, so saying we all have them would be totally incorrect...

Simple, OHHH and not all dogs are mutts, mine is a pure bred thus it is rather insulting how you talk... WHICH may be a problem for you, because most people don't like someone so brash that they can't keep there disdain under control...

I am not a possum person, but it doesn't mean I go out of my way to run them over..., Just saying...

I would not be in a relationship with a man who didn't love animals. To me, it goes to his intrinsic nature. I adore animals and I want someone to share that love with me. My man and I hope to have a small farm one day where we can have horses, dogs, cats, and whatever else our hearts desire.

I am suspect of people who don't care about animals, in at least one form or another.

OP... All I can say is that I feel sorry for you. A relationship with a pet is a wonderful experience.

I broke up with a woman because her comment after seeing "Marley & Me" was, "Oh well, it was just a dog!"

But like others have said, I'm sure there are lots of women who agree with you.

I used to bring my dogg over to the girl's place. She was younger - and I found out later lots scared by the dog romping around on the bed with us. Then on a Saturday morning garage-sale exped in hillbillyland she picked up a Husky-Mutt. -- things got doggish. Set boundaries.

Dog is more loyal than people are. Hell if I'm going to support a man< I'd rather support a dog.

OK I don't let her lick my face as dogs noses are in other dogs(and peoples') hind ends, poop, and alot of disgusting places, but I love her. She'll look out for the house, too.

Why do you hate dogs? What have they done to you? I have never met any woman that hate my dogs and if they did they put up with them without a whimper.
As everyone has said don`t date people with dogs or cats etc. Any women out there hate dogs or cats? This guys for you.

Well..
I pretty much agree with those that said things to the effect of "don't date someone with pets if you don't like pets".
I think people(including myself at times)have this illusion that people will change in a relationship. they won't. those of us who are devoted to pets will stay thay way...

It isn't going to happen. There aren't many people that are going to give up their pet for someone they don't really know.

I have two 7 year old cats. I have had one since the moment he was born(feed him goats milk with a little bottle), and the other since he was 4 weeks old. If I were to met a man that didn't like cats, I would not date him. My cats have always been there, and believe it or not, they know when I am upset and give me little kitty kisses and hugs to make me feel better.

I like all animals and have had many types over the years. There is no way I could become involved with a man that doesn't like other animals.

I find people that don't like animals to be very cold.

OP, the answer is simple. No matter how much you lust over some woman's a$$ if she has a dog - move along. What could be simpler.

SOme people go through life setting limits on who they would bang, talk to, associate with. For some it is religion. Others, it's politics. I could never date a socialist. Just too big a GAP between common sense and reality there for me to stomach. I've known this for years. I don't generally have anything to do with (most) teachers because of how they think so your question would be like me posting a thread that stated

""I HATE SOCIALISTS AND TEACHERS ... what do I do now?
Could somebody puhleeaase tell me two types of people I should avoid. I haven't a clue.""


(where's the DOIHH!! troll or the one that shows IQ & shoe size as one?)



* note I said "MOST" teechurs. There are a few out there who have come to their senses over the years OR have even hidden their true beliefs from their fellow teachers for their entire careers and none of their friends know they are "closet conservatives"

people loving pets as human? Seeing Zoo cured me of that forever (anyone who hates kids and dogs can't be all bad) yes, I have a cat, but I can live without him, an old boyfriend lured him in, b/f gone, cat still here


I don't see what as wrong with people loving pets as much as they do humans. I hate zoos, they seem like prisons for animals.

Seems like the cat is the one that is more deserving of your love than the x bf as the cat is still there, and trust me if the cat didn't like you it would be gone. With dogs, birds, hamsters, etc. we pick them. With cats they pick you, if you are lucky.

Another poster is right, you should never buy animals that came from the wild. The best way to avoid this is to buy from local people that breed animals. I can't imagine that a bird that is used to flying freely in the wild would be very happy in a cage.

Nope- love me- love my dog.

If you don't like dogs- then I worry about what kind of person you are.

I'm with you about both. I had two greys. I fed them and cleaned them and they bit me daily. While my husband ignored them and they loved him. Animals that bite the hands that feed them need special owners. On the other hand they are funny when they talk and fun at times. Mine made messes daily. Lots of poop and lots of see all over.

I have a Pom mix- barks all the time- that high pitched bark that makes you cringe. Sweet though. Also can be messy- but not as messy as my black lab or my Newfoundlands used to be.

This does not take a 4.0 to figure out. Date women who do not have dogs. Good grief. How hard is that to figure out???? And it is "Dog" not "Dogg".

I myself love pets. In your situation though you have to do this. If you don't like pets....











date someone who doesn't have a pet.






It's quite simple. I'm not crazy about smokers, so I would choose to not date a person that smokes. Problem solved.

I think you should get to know a dog before you judge them. Some dogs shed more than others. Some people dress their dogs up but I do not . My dog does not lick my face but she loves me. I understand most dogs. When I younger were not a fan of dogs because I did not understand them but now I know them better.

Get a dog that does not shed hair on loan and then review if you still dislikes dogs. Dogs have different personality like people. There are dogs of the same breed who have behaviors opinion. Dogs have open up a another world for me.

Warning Do not start with a puppy because many can nip you and you will be turned off. Pick one you have talked to the owner and know what to expect. Give at least 3 dogs breeds a try because they may not like your actions. Dogs know when you do not like them.

Cant stand dogs are too strong words when you never owned one. If a dog has bad behavior it is usually the owners fault but not always.


You have a right to your opinion but I hope you will give some dog a chance

The OP has vanished and I doubt this post was for real.
Still, I couldn't completely trust someone who dislikes pets.
It seems so, inhuman!
