    MadExistence saidI dated a guy whose dog badly needed obedience training. It was hyper and it would jump (really high!) on you. He also let the dog in bed and refused to put the dog out of the room. I'd really rather not have sex with the dog in the bed. I love dogs but thats where I draw the line. Brings up the issue of pets watching you have sex. Appropriate? LOL


    Haha. My boyfriend absolutely freaks out if we're having sex and he looks over and realizes the dog is sitting there by the bed watching. He starts yelling at him, "Out of the room! OUT OF THE ROOM!" which is every bit the boner killer you'd think it is.

    We let the dogs get in bed and cuddle with us in the mornings (not while we're having sex, ewwww). One is a golden who sheds a lot so we're constantly running our sheets through the wash. There is nothing worse than starting to fool around, look down and realize that there's a bunch of dog hair stuck to your lubey hand.

    Jockbod48 saidI have to chime in about the above.............and I agree, if a guy (or any guest) comes over and refuses to pet or say hello to my dog, then I know this is someone I have zero in common with. I mean, how much effort does it take to lean over and say hello, or pet a nice dog? Everywhere I go, I take a minute to say hello and pet or scratch the ears of someone's dog.


    Some people are just rude or mean. OTHERS really need introductions to our canine friends. That includes teaching them that all dogs (read also: people) aren't all dirty, disease ridden, and belligerent. It's like seeing someone of a different nationality/ethnic group without having had any exposure in the past. If sheltered or mislead people are exposed and shown/taught it WILL make a difference, and it will improve interrelationships.

    From time to time our Great Dane watches my partner and I. We just laugh and call her Dirty Girl. Anything but disinterested observation is strictly verboten - no sniffing, no tail wagging, no attemps at climbing in the bed.

    Here is one of our kitties, a little bald Sphynx cat named Louie. Don't make fun of his belly, he's VERY sensitive about it.icon_wink.gif

    I agree about Sphynxs, he is the most affectionate and playful cat, ever. I'm so sorry about Isis and Osiris. icon_sad.gif

    Sphynx kitties are the best. The personalities are so amazing. I used to have two. Isis and Osiris. icon_smile.gif

    I miss them. icon_cry.gif

    I wish people could understand that not everyone is an animal person. Yes, they are cute, as children are (usually). But that doesn't mean I want one. And some of us do NOT like to be pounced upon when entering someone's home, and while being slobbered on, being told "S/He likes you!"

    There probably are aliens looking down on all the people with pooper-scoopers thinking "Who's really in charge down there?"

    But seriously, it's not that we don't like animals--we choose not to have any, and that is OK.

    I wonder if all the guys who "don't care for/don't care about" animals are more Left Brainers.

    There's a big difference in not wanting to have a pet and a general dislike of animals. Not everyone makes a good guardian and not everyone is at a place in their life where they can offer a good home to an animal. But no one here is talking about that. We were speaking of people who just don't like them. Period. I can't relate to them at all. Hell, I have SEVERE allergies to dogs but I give myself vaccinations every week because I have to have dogs in my life!

    Every person I've met that didn't like animals had a coldness about them. At first it just comes across as aloofness but in the end they have always ended up being a cold fish on the inside. I think something is "off" in people like that and I really don't want to have them close to me. It's like not liking sunshine. icon_neutral.gif

    I'll put my hand up for the bird section of pet lovers. We have 3 who all have totally different personalities (1 is adopted from Parrot Rescue). They are very much companion animals and as interactive as cats and dogs.

    I have never read something more true in my life! Our dane sheds like it's her job and our apartment is covered in her hair.

    The worst, though, is when you feel a hair on your tongue and you think it might belong to your boyfriend, but it's definitely the dog's. icon_redface.gif

    Clearly a biased picture. They should show the "left brainers" driving ferrari's and eating hundred dollar cans of caviar.

    Nothing wrong with being intelligent icon_rolleyes.gif

    I gotta disagree with this. I'm not an animal person at all and it's a total leftover from my childhood. I grew up on a farm. Animals were work for me. Serious work. Even the "pets": watching the family rat terrier being shredded up by two groundhogs in a fight was one of the more unpleasant experiences. And animals were dirty: once you've been shit on in the face by a cow or blood sprayed by a dying cat you're trying to save from running machine parts, you can't help but develop a sort of emotional safe zone detachment.

    I've not been able to shake equating animals with work and drama. I don't DISLIKE animals per se, but I definitely prefer to not have them in my life. Doesn't make me cold or aloof. I will pet a cute, clean dog and don't recoil when cats rub against my legs at a friend's house. But I will NEVER pick up or shovel shit again in my life, nor do I want to get hairballs in my j/o hand.

    Those of you who grew up in the city or the burbs, or even rural areas, where you had cute golden retrievers that Mom cared for mostly will not relate to my experience, but I want to share it in brief to simply remind people that an "animal non-lover" shouldn't be label as having something wrong with them.

    Am I the only one that gets the feeling that scruffypup just got photoshop and he's ridiculously eager to use it?
