At the risk of alienating my followers and bringing death and destruction to my home; I just feel compelled to say it. Dogs are annoying.
I am really sorry all you dog lovers, but facts are facts. We have a cute little dog. Cute when he is asleep or playing catch, but not so cute when he is jumping on people, peeing on the table legs, humping anything that moves (even after we had him fixed), digging holes in the back yard, tearing up trash, etc. He recently got into the bathroom and tore some of my teenager’s used feminine hygiene products. We went on a walk and he made a point of rubbing his head in a previous pet’s poop. When I was a kid the dog we owned; ate cow manure, had poop often stuck to his hairy butt, and humped a goat. No joking.
Personally, I like cats, but as long as you are willing to admit that dogs are annoying, you can like any animal you want. Even dogs. Kids are annoying sometimes too, but I like them…well, I like mine.
I know that you dog lovers are probably getting your steak knives sharpened so you can hunt me down, but just so you know, I like my dog a little. He is trainable (which is more than I can say about my kids), he eats what we want him to eat (which is more than I can say about my kids), he can find and pick up his toys (which is more than I can say about my kids), he likes to go play outside (which is often more than I can say about my kids).
Okay, so there might be a few things a little more annoying than dogs, but at least my kids don’t rub their heads in poop.
