Dog at the gym. Seriously.

    First of all, I've been using the little slapped-together gym at my apartment complex, so it's not exactly supervised. But recently, I'm in there doing my thing when some lady comes in with a stroller, and I think "Not a great place to bring a baby, but maybe she couldn't find a sitter or something for her grandkid" (she looked too old for it to be her kid).

    So then she turns the stroller, and it's a dog. Woman brought her little rat-dog to the gym.

    I minded my own business and didn't say anything, which since it's a crappy little gym in the first place and just as much hers as mine I think I didn't really need to say anything, but still. A freaking dog?
    No real point to this one, just can't believe I saw that. Anyone got something to top bringing your dog to the gym?

    I love the fact that the dog was in a stroller!

    The location of your gym makes it a non issue, provided the dog was well behaved. If it became a hinderance or interruption with your workout, I'd probably have said something. I'd have been friendly and gone on.

    If its in a professional facility, its different, but in a apartment complex, I'd just be nice and go on.

    Over here, the waiter will bring a bowl of water for your dog to the table although I have to admit I've never seen a dog at the gym. The mall, the theater last Wednesday, yes.

    Nothing cools you off after an intense set like wet, hot puppy kisses.

    The proper thing to do, of course, would be the same as if someone brought their kid to work for the day. Give them a fun 'grown-up project' to work on. In the case of the dog, I'd ask the woman if her little Chi-Chi wanted to spot me doing bench presses.

    Then I'd accidentally smoosh Chi-Chi.

    Oopsies. Did I say that out loud? icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, Kansan, that's the route I took, but I definitely shook my head for a while after I left.

    For next time: puppy kisses and chi-chi smooshing, got it.

    I see no problem with that. Maybe the dog is all she had. Before my mom got sick she lived in her own apartment and her dog went everywhere with her. They were best buds. Get over it!

    A womens dog peed and threw up on the floor of the department store where I work last week and I asked her to take it outside. I was tempted to make her clean it up


    She gave me the dirtiest look... I was tempted to suggest she clean up after it butt I got the impression that she would complain to management if I did.


    Hate those little Rat dogs...


    Not all dogs though HndsmKansan Beagles look adorably cute

    I don't dislike small dogs, but I am tired of seeing them everywhere. I was at the grocery store and a woman had her pocket-sized dog laying in the child's seat, on top of a sheepskin blanket.

    This guy came into my gym with a bag of one of those disgusting baby carrots! In a little snot-nosed plastic bag! Ugh. I HATE those. I'm really getting sick of seeing them. At one point, get this... he ATE one. Sickening. I thought of saying something, but I just glared at him the whole time.

    I've never seen that at the gym!

    I have two small dogs (Toy Fox Terriers) and love them - they think they are big dogs! icon_cool.gif But draw the line at putting them in a stroller....

    The owner of the first Gym I ever went had a Sheepdog, which was always running around in the Gym. He never really disturbed somebody, he just went to resting people he knows to get some affection.(hope that was the right word)

    I also hate those little purse-rats. I am always afraid I might step on one of them. There are some cute ones like Beagels or Sausage Dogs.

    OK - Cmon - I used to think the same until I met my Partner and inherited two Toy Fox Terriers. I was always a Lab guy - and I have to say these dogs have more personality than a lab ever did - and oh - getting back to the forum - I still wouldn't bring them to the gym in a baby carriage... ish! icon_rolleyes.gif
