I Hate Dogs
Are Dogs Man's Best Friend? I Say No! I Hate Dogs!
Well, this is going to make me popular! I hate dogs.
Ever since I was a child, I have had a fear of dogs, they are just so unpredictable - I can never tell what they may do next.
Dogs have plagued my life from the pram when I was pounced on by a large Alsatian to the present day when I had a chunk bitten out of my bottom by an over excited Labrador.
Apart from the dogs that work at sniffing out drugs, helping the blind or can intercept land mines what is the actual point of dogs as pets? Why do people have to own dogs? With all the cleaning up, feeding and picking up of their messes, what can someone actually get out of having a dog as a pet? You have to train them to behave and give them attention, what's the fun in that?! Dogs may be man's best friend, but they aren't mine!
So, this debate is here for you to sound off, tell me the answers to these questions please! Do you hate dogs? Or do you love them? Tell me about it! Please just don't get abusive.
Why I Am Not a Dog Lover
Dogs smell. Their odour gets into everything, if you own a dog your house will smell, even if your home is spotlessly clean, a visitor will smell your dog in seconds of coming through the door.
Dog poops are gruesome. The stink of dog poo is not easy to disguise. And many owners don't pick it up either, making life unpleasant for anyone else walking in that park, field or road. It isn't the dog's fault; it's got to do what it has got to do. But if you own a dog, take responsibility and for goodness sake bag it and bin it. Yes that's a horrid task to perform, but more fool you for owning a dog in the first place.
Dogs bark. Not a nice sound, not cute at all.
They have sharp teeth. That bite.
The slobbery licking is repulsive. Yuk, and the ones that have the drool hanging from their mouths. If you are an owner who kisses their dog on the lips, then I think you are very very wrong.
The jumping up, the bouncing and the running. Absolutely terrifying.
This is the main reason why I don't like dogs: owners expect everyone else to love their pooch as much as they do. We have to be tolerant of their hairy excited animal bounding up to us in the park, frightening our children and sticking their noses in our crotches. I like to go running, but each time I go I have to navigate the dogs. I hate dogs, but they just love me! I am a dog magnet, they smell the fear and seek me out! I think many owners forget that only they know their dog, it could be the soppiest dog in the world but we do not know this and I am going to wary of anything that runs up and rugby tackles me when I go running.
And finally, DON'T BRING YOUR DOG TO WORK!!!
Please Note! I Do Hate Dogs, But...
I do not wish any dogs harm, I am not evil!
