    Default Dogaholics Anomymous

    Taken from The Gordon Setter Club of NSW Autumn Newsletter

    Welcome to this month's meeting of Dogaholics Anonymous

    - Can you say "bitch" in public without blushing?

    - Do you drive a station wagon, van or 4x4 when everyone else drives a real car?

    - If you go overseas, is it to London in March to attend Crufts.

    - Do you discuss things at the dinner table that would make most doctors leave in disgust?

    - Do you consider formal wear to be clean jeans and freshly washed tennis shoes?

    - Was your furniture and carpeting chosen to suit a dog household?

    - Are your end tables really dog crates with tablecloths thrown over them?

    - Do you know the meaning of titles such as CD, CDX, UD CGC, AD, ADX, CH?

    - Do you get up before dawn to go to training classes? Dog Shows? Seminar? Walk the Dog?

    - Do all your pockets contain freeze dried liver, BBQ chicken or squeaky toys and plastic bags?

    - When you meet a new person do you always ask them what kind of dog they have and pity them if they don't have one?

    - Do you remember the name of their dog sooner than you remember their name?


    A YES to one of the above, there is still hope. A YES to two, you are in serious trouble. If you have answered YES to three or more, you have come to the "right" place.

    My advice to all of you with three or more yesses is to sit back, smile and know that your life will always be filled with good friends and good dogs and it will never be boring

    Very true!

    OK, I have 7 YESses and 3 more potential yesses
    First potential is Crufts, never been but always wanted to go. But I watch it on telly.
    Second is the furniture and carpet. No we did not as we are renting but ATM I am trying to convince OH that we need a bigger sofa as it is simply to small for the three of us.
    And third are the titles. I am learning though....

    I ticked off 8.

    The ones I didn't tick were:

    I wouldn't go to London just to go to Crufts, but suppose if I was there at the right time I may go???

    The lounge I bought pre dogs being allowed on furniture, but got lucky it matches the setter. The carpet is pale and matches the whippets but none of this was intentional.

    I don't bother to hide the dog crates.

    I don't ask if someone has a dog.

    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    - Can you say "bitch" in public without blushing?
    Sadly, this one's a no. Even though it's used frequently by mum when talking about dogs. If I even thought about swearing as a kid I got a swift kick up the bum, so it still makes me weary

    - Do you drive a station wagon, van or 4x4 when everyone else drives a real car?

    Soon hopefully! It's too hard to cart all the dog gear to shows in a hatchback or a convertible so it's time to upgrade!

    - If you go overseas, is it to London in March to attend Crufts.
    Yes and no, while I would LOVE to attend Crufts or Westminster, even just to watch, Japan is still at the top of my list (although I would be attending at least one dog show ever there!)

    - Do you discuss things at the dinner table that would make most doctors leave in disgust?
    Oh, I noticed Cyrus' stools were a little soft today, might have to switch to a different brand of dry.


    - Do you consider formal wear to be clean jeans and freshly washed tennis shoes?
    Clean?

    - Was your furniture and carpeting chosen to suit a dog household?
    Yes, sadly. One of the selling points of our house was the floorboards, and we specifically bought a leather couch because it would be easier to clean.

    - Are your end tables really dog crates with tablecloths thrown over them?
    I did away with the bedside tables ages ago... now my glass of water, phone and pills are all on top of a dog trolley by my bed.

    - Do you know the meaning of titles such as CD, CDX, UD CGC, AD, ADX, CH?
    Yes and no, the first bunch are working/obedience/agility titles, not my field, but I do know CH, BIS, BISS, Gr. CH, etc etc.

    - Do you get up before dawn to go to training classes? Dog Shows? Seminar? Walk the Dog?
    Up before the sun is on show day.

    - Do all your pockets contain freeze dried liver, BBQ chicken or squeaky toys and plastic bags?
    I was going out to the casino one night and realised my good skirt had gotten a little tight around the thighs so I threw on a pair of black trousers. It wasn't until after we got there I realised I had worn them to the last show and there was a grainy, smelly substance in the pockets!

    - When you meet a new person do you always ask them what kind of dog they have and pity them if they don't have one?
    The first part... yes. The second part, I don't say it, but I think it.

    - Do you remember the name of their dog sooner than you remember their name?
    Definitely, at the dog park I call everyone else by their dogs names ie: Princes Dad etc.

    Crested, I chuckled at all of your replies, but the dog trolly as a bedside table, wish I had of thought of that!!

    Now I can tell OH it's worth us getting one as it can double as a bedside table! thing is we would fight over whose side it should go on as it would have far more room than the little bedside tables we use now.

    8 'yes' answers for me; only a few 'no' answers here:

    I have no desire to go to Crufts (watching 'Best in Show' is more than enough for me ).

    There is no way that I'm about to get up before dawn for anything or anybody.

    And I don't have a station wagon; my extra large dog crate fits into the back seat of my Mitsubishi Evolution 8 (I have to assemble it inside the car as it won't fit through the door when assembled). My dog crate is not used as in-house furniture.......

    Other than these few 'no' answers,......

    My idea of formal wear is jeans and a pit bull T shirt. I have a black one for funerals.

    At a dinner party, I have been known to describe the best technique for expressing canine anal glands .

    At dog parks, the first thing that dogs do when they meet me is sniff my bum. That's not because they think that I'm a dog, it's to do with the old liver treats in my back pocket.

    Cheers,

    Peter D

    lol MAC, they really do make great bedside tables!

    I found this a while back, thought it was a great idea! Now I just have to get motivated enough to build one!
