    So I just scored a date with a guy, and I owe a big thanks to my dog Ava. She was looking extra cute and lured him right in. haha. Hot guys aside, I really do meet a lot of people that I normally wouldn't because of her.

    Has anyone else got a date or met their bf/husbands thanks to their dogs?

    Yeah it kinda makes me laugh when i see guys with toy dogs. I live in a pretty gay neighborhood and you see them everywhere. I have a German Shepard.

    I cringe at the kinds of dogs most gay men have.

    Now, if you've got a German Shepherd, a Black or Yellow Lab, a Golden Retriever, or a Bernese Mountain dog, I could be persuaded.

    Yes they are, labs especially.

    People out with their dogs look more approachable and freindly and guys who are attracted to you have an easy opener: "What's his/her name?" "What breed is it?" etc...

    Plus, dog parks make great places to meet other single dog owners.

    My brother has the gayest dog. I like looking after her but I cringe taking her for a walk in her pink leather harness. Uber-gay. My brother isn't even gay though!

    When I get a dog it'll be a brown labrador. And he'll have either a studded black leather collar, or a rakish red bandana jauntily swathed around his neck!

    Nickfit...first off: your bro IS gay...or at least he's trying to make his dog gay with the pink harness! LOL

    Second: buy a brown or black harness to put on the dog when YOU walk it! icon_wink.gif

    My boyfriend and I got a Golden Retriever when we had already been together for over a year, so I haven't picked up anyone BECAUSE of my dog, but I see the effect. Everybody loves a puppy, guys AND girls!

    I'd be lying if I said I haven't put the pup in sight deliberately to start conversation with a good looking guy, though =P

    Also, the teller at the drive-up window at my bank sends him a doggy treat through the tube when I have him in the truck with me. No idea why they keep treats at a bank...

    Haha, I better tell his wife then!

    I could buy one, but really it would be like the reverse of putting lipstick on a pig. She's still a really gay looking foofy dog!

    I dunno... I got my pug because I wanted one for so long. I'm not going to lie and say I didn't try to exploit the cuteness when he was a puppy... but it never got me a date. I guess the breed of dog will either attract or deflect guys, depending on their tastes. Oh well. Still, much happier with Remington James (I know, right?) than a dog that didn't fit my personality.

    (haha, remington james... love that.)

    when i see a guy walking a dog, i have several automatic thoughts: (1) income, (2) somewhat stable schedule, (3) responsible, (4) probably not an addict, and (5) probably cares for others.

    it seems to be semi-funny, semi-true. just thought i'd share. ;)

    Sadly I never get guys talking to me cause of my dogs, but I also live in a very conservative town that is slowly seeping into the ghetto way of life. icon_razz.gif I also have to admit that I am an animal lover and half the time am barely paying attention to the owners lol.

    When my dog was a puppy and I walked her, I usually had more women than men stop to pet her.

    Dogs are dick magnets

    I believe this is true. Just this Saturday I came out of a coffee shop and saw a guy at an outdoor table with an adorable Shepherd pup. So I asked the owner his age (3 months) and complimented his appearance.

    I wasn't hitting on him, my partner being still inside, and I'm strictly monogamous. But having read this thread, I could believe this owner (in uber-gay Wilton Manors, FL) got lots of guys approaching him, and that may well have been his intention in being there with the cute puppy.

    And I think that may also be the motivation when I see so many single guys bringing their dogs to outdoor gay-themed events like Pride, when I otherwise would have thought: why bring your dog to THIS? What enjoyment could it get in walking miles on the sidewalks and roads, in heavy crowds of people? Now perhaps I may have that answer.

    "Guys never change" - so stereotypical it inspired the Jim Beam puppy rental commercial:



    Still waiting breathlessly for the gay version.

    Interesting way of looking at it, and probably true at that. But with those toy dogs, it seems more like a fashion accessory than a pet.

    Like seriously, what is it with gay men and chiuahuas? (or however the hell you spell that)
