    I actually had someone who I'm friended with on Facebook suddenly ask me earlier, "So do you really have beagles"? I told him I did and that I have 3 beagles. His reaction, "well I don't think I could date you, beagles aren't on my list". First I thought he was kidding, then he explained that the kind of dog we own tells something about the personality of the owner. wtf...

    He also told me he is a cat person and anybody he dates has to be ok with cats.

    The guy isn't a real friend of mine, somehow we became FB friends and I hadn't even thought about any sort of dating scene (or anything else). "I just wanted you to know I couldn't consider you for dating purposes with beagles", he said.

    I responded, "I'm OK with it"....lol

    Jack Russell Terrier!


    Cute... for sure!

    One of the topics would have on a first date is the dog the guy has and how important he or she is in the guy's life.

    You can a lot from this kind of conversation!

    Kind of hysterical! Sounds like that guy will say anything to remain alone. If you have any dog you're already ahead of the game in my book.

    -kudos to the guy who adopts a pet from the pound or through a local breed's club.

    To me any kind of dog or cat is instant points because it shows someone is a kind person.

    I'm not into pet snobbery though. I know some people can be snobby about cross breed animals but to me a pet is a pet.

    Holding a dog does not make me a animal lover. Stop following me around, Sustenance-wannabe twink idiot.

    Part of the basic job of a border collie is to provide introductions to cute strangers. For example, by "accidentally" bumping into them while leaping for a poorly thrown frisbee.

    The closest that Linus ever came was out-racing someone else's dog for their thrown ball (You're doing it wrong...) and stealing it from them. Not quite the impression we were going for... icon_redface.gif

    My doggy girls didn't do the fetching thing. But they were power-sluts. Leave them in the back of the truck at a shopping center and they would draw people from across the parking lot to pet them. The one that's left is too old for that now, most of the time. She still gets her flirt on, once in a while.

    I don't understand how I'm a sustenance wannabe, nor do I see myself following you around. We posted on the same forum thread so please get over it.

    Maybe if you were an animal lover people might start to like you more and you might learn to be a nicer person.

    I felt as though what I wrote was a joke. I was amused, you wasn't. Let's move on!

    Our family has a beagle named Max who is about 8 years old (human years). After him being part of the family for this long, I am convinced that...

    Beagles are cute from the day they are born until the day they die

    Food, digging and howling are the only things important to them

    Beagles, as a breed, have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and need a daily dose of Ritalin to calm down, and

    They are the most loveable and adorable creatures on the face of the earth!

    Long live Snoopy's cousins!!!

    I had two beagles when I was a kid but I find its kinda hard to date a gay man with dog a because their dog comes first and dates are limited to 4 hour intervals. They generally want to sleep with them and don't realize that the whole house smells like dog and is covered with dog dander /oil and hair.
    The rule is : Don't get between a gay dude and his dog.

    I've dated guys with various kinds of dogs and never gave much thought to it. If a guy is kind to his dogs, he's usually a good guy to know. I've never had a guy negatively judge me because of the kinds of dogs I had all my life (Chow-chows, Labs, Retrievers, Newfoundlands, etc.) If a guy didn't like my dog, I'd know he wouldn't like me either. No great loss!

    Ok that's a bit strange. I've heard of people who will not go on dates with someone unless they liked dogs or cats, but basing someone's personality on the type of dog they have as a potential interest...? Very strange, and I'm sure this guy (who sounds like an ass) isn't even worthy of anyone's time with such a strange requirement for dating.

    If it doesn't make sense to you, you're not a dog lover. You don't get it. Not a criticism, just a fact. My only distinction is between big dogs and small dogs (though beagles are nicely in the middle).

    Setters are my breed. One English Setter, Wembley, born to AKC royalty in a show kennel outside Seattle and flown to me at 4 months (her aunt won Best in Breed at Westminster 2 years ago), and an Irish Setter, Rothko, a local rescue. Both are great souls and have the added benefit of being entertaining as they bird-dog it (or more often lizard-dog it) and are scenic in the wild or at the beach.

    My guy wasn't raised as a dog person and I actually struggled a bit with that. But once he saw what great additions they are to our lives, he became devoted. And is now just as crazy as I.

    And I hate cats. (Kittens are cute but they have a nasty habit of becoming cats.)

    Hmmm, I have a knee-jerk reaction of fear towards small dogs, but that was because I was attacked by one when I was little. A few months ago, a little dog started growling and darting towards me, trying to bite me. I yelped and kicked the little runt when I saw it tilting its head and opening its teeth.

    Whether or not someone has or wants a little dog is a concern for me, though not a major one. I know that I could probably get over my instincts for a nice fella if the dog was trained well, though I doubt I would ever like the dog itself.

    Not totally strange.
    Would you really date someone who has one of those miniature dogs that they carry around with them in a purse?

    @Destinharbor: I see what you are saying and my not being a dog owner does make it harder to relate to other owners, however it does seem strange for someone to say , "I won't date you because you have a (insert certain dog breed)". It would make more sense to me if a dog owner did not date another dog owner because their dogs were incompatible (the dogs incessantly fought with each other to the point of harm). But that's just me of course.

    @HikerSkier: Uh, yeah I would date someone who has a miniature dog in their purse. Personally I like small dogs and see no problem with them. If the owner was obnoxious and super over protective with the dog, then I probably would not date the guy, but it would not be because of the type of dog he had.

    Someone who doesn't like beagles will most certainly live the rest of his life in solitary confinement.

    lol Dude, there are gays that won't date you because of the genre of music you listen to or what your favourite sport is. Why does this surprise you? icon_lol.gif

    It doesn't surprise me at all, but it does come across as shallow. If I were dating someone and they were genuinely good person, yet I found out they disliked anime (something I really enjoy) then I wouldn't drop them because they did not fit neatly into my list. As said it isn't surprising, heck I hear my friends talk about how they won't date someone based solely on the fact that they wear a certain cologne they don't like, despite having had a wonderful time with them. I dislike it, but again that's just me icon_wink.gif.

    Animals are great, and I get the connection people have with their pets. I guess I'm just not a guy who wants one. I don't like animals jumping up on me, slobbering on me, and my surroundings are very neat, orderly, and smell nice. I know it may seem selfish, but I never had a pet when I was a kid, and neither did my parents. Plus, I can't keep a chia pet alive, so I suppose I'm not a good fit!
