    • People who judge my dogs by their looks without even having spent 1 second getting to know them


    • Checkout operators who are determined to chat and chat with the person in front of you, when you are in a hurry


    • Old toothpaste in the bathroom sink


    • People who work full-time and insist on getting a new puppy


    • People who keep their dogs outside 24/7...what's the point in having a dog when it is left outside all the time


    • Parents who send their children to school with headlice...arrgghhh...infecting everybody else


    • People who leave their mobile phones on in restaurants and then continue to talk loudly during calls

    Hey, my bold didn't work. Stupid DA.

    Fulltime workers who get a puppy, and 24/7 outside dogs with little human contact.

    UGH that pisses me off no end. Talking on the mobile about something personal really makes me uncomfortable.

I just turn the dogs around and walk away.
    My kids might be a bit on the crazy side, but I've always drummed into them not to just go up to a dog - ask me first, then ask the dog's owner if it's OK to pat the dog, then just a couple of gentle touches before leaving the dog alone.

    I would question how many unemployed can actually afford to buy a dog.


    As for leaving a dog outside permantly well mine NEVER come inside. They always get plenty of attention and time spent with them but they are not coming in the house. My dogs tail would destroy everything i own, not to mention the drooling issues.

    Also, would they they take up a lot of space if they slept inside? (Beds, food, etc?)

    Hi Di Dee

    It's probably not 40'C in that dirt "cellar" under your house especially if you have A/C running cold air above it... However the poor dog in the kero drum in full sun will probably die before the day is out. And it happens. Old people die in these heat waves too - it's not just dogs.

    I was thinking about the dog over the back fence that was barking every couple of minutes and I know it was sitting in the full sun against the back door. And there's not a whole lot of other places for it to go in that yard. Eventually they let it in. I was debating who to ring to make them let it in.

    Whereas I am the opposite, Peter.

    I don't mind the drool, especially when it means they have caught flies! Lol.
    I am one of those ppl who when I have a dog, that dog is with me almost all the time.
    But then I have been lucky throughout life to always be in a situation or employment where my dogs were with me a heck of a lot.
    I have personally found dogs (no matter how big) far better behaved when in the house, and far tidier, than my sons.

    I don't know about the unemployed, though. I beg to differ there. A lot of unemployed do have dogs I think. Usually purchased from the BYB who sell them at a reasonable price that they can afford.
