Hey! I Watched Sesame Street Too!

The Absolute Most Useless Rant of the Day:

If one more person in my neighborhood points out that we have  "Oh my goodness a BIG dog and a LITTLE dog" while we are walking them I am going to leave the poopy bag on their front porch.

On fire.
Pooldad, Scooby, Spot and Skippy
Seriously people.

I realize it would take 6 of the little one to make the big one, but stop.pointing.out.the.obvious. Please.

And for the love of pete [hi pete!] STOP asking me WHY we have such a disparity in dog sizes.*

It has been a long winter, but we were blessed with such lovely weather yesterday that it was perfect for a nice long walk.

Love the walks.  The doggies love their walks.  I will happily allow you to pet the pups when you ask, but stop questioning us like it is so odd that we have a pony** that could basically eat the little one for snack.

It just is. 

People seem to have some misconception that one has to be either a "big dog" person or a "little" dog person.  Really?    

*Little kids are absolutely exempt from this rule.  They are cute and fine when they ask.  It is the adults that peeez me off.  
**That is, IF ponies were carnivores

And can I just say - you all have some ugly vacuum cleaners.  I must not get out much - but I have to draw the line at a purple Hoover Tadpoles.  I thought turquoise was bad. Guess I missed the bullet on that one. giggle

Hope you all are having a spectacular Tuesday - see ya' on the flipside!

There are times I want to roll my eyes when someone says to me "hey, I've never seen anyone walk a cat on a leash before" when we're in a campground. I've certainly seen others doing the same thing with their cats so either these people don't camp much or they walk around with their head up their a....never mind.

Yeah, I get it.

word vert: puracroi. The puracroi Indian tribe lived not only in New York, but in Ohio.

I like it when it's the same people making the same statements every time you pass them.

I love it when folks state the obvious.

Drew's Mom said...

When people ask questions like that, it just makes me wonder about THEM... seriously. But your pups are cuties.. maybe you should teach them to bite the curious =)

I had the same complaint when I walked the big oaf of a collie and the toy sized sheltie. Some of the comments were retarded. Where's the shorts? I wanna see the shorts!!! hehe Love ya.

sapphireblue said...

Some people have the dumbest observation. Never seen a big dog and a little dog before?

Jeannie said...

I absolutely LOVE when people have various shapes and sizes of dogs. It means they are generally NOT dog snobs and have the dogs because they love them, and maybe, the dogs needed them. I don't need to know the details although I might ask much later down the road when we know each other better if you haven't offered it up yet.

Vacuum colour design is clearly by men who are colour blind, don't care, or think they are being cool and zany.

So lovely to see you out enjoying the sunshine, Skippy. It was good to see a photo on your post as well. OMG, I see you have a BIG dog and a LITTLE dog. I didn't know that before I saw the photo! Hee Hee Hee & LOL!!! I'm being naughty now.

They are just making conversation, although it is dumb conversation.

becca said...

lol..to me that's as bad as when someone points to a mother with twins and ask "are they twins" i want to say no they were on sale buy one get one free. next time you tell yep we have both sizes the little one came free with the purchase of the bog one.

Too cute, we have a pug that is missing 5 teeth so the end of her tongue is always sticking out of her mouth. You are H I larious and I love reading your posts they make my day.

I think people are just generally not all that bright and state the obvious for lack of anything intelligent to say.

When my oldest was about 2 or three years old some brainiac asked me if I dyed her hair strawberry blond?

Mind you I AM a strawberry blond and our hair color was almost identical!

I looked at the person and thought- Really? did you just ask that asinine question??

but I said - "no, it's natural"

What an IDIOT!

We have three dogs that weigh 100 pounds each, and then there is Buddy who weighs about 35 pounds.
When you love dogs, there is no rhyme or reason.
