    Just Can't Stand The Little Thing!

    My boyfriend moved in with me and he has a 6 yr old dog. I am not a fan of animals at all, especially dogs. I am severely allergic to them and I have to have allergy shots every week just to be inside my own house with this thing. It pees/poops/pukes all over my house. I've had...

    So Sue Me

    "I don't like dogs very much" is putting it mildly. I don't hate dogs. However, I do not like them and can't see ever living with one. The barking drives me insane. The crotch sniffing, leg humping, and smell of them puts me off of them totally. I've had more then one...

    Why Do People Think It's Odd I Don't Care For Dogs?

    I grew up with dogs, only they were outside dogs. Thankfully we had lots of land so they could roam and be an animal, just as nature intended. I am now 34 yrs. old and living with my gf. She loves dogs and when I met her, Cael -- a choco lab that recently passed -- was already...

    I Can't Stand Dogs

    I am convinced only idiots own dogs. You'd have to be an idiot to want to pay a fortune in vet and food bills for a smelly, filthy, slobbering animal that sniffs your crotch, humps your leg ,barks, pees, craps, barfs, tracks in dirt on its disgusting paws and chews...

    Dog People Are Part Of Why I Don'T Like Dogs

    Dog People, or people obsessed with dogs (and having little to no interest in other animals only dogs) have to be some of the most annoying people I've ever met. I prefer small rodents. Which is why it irks me to no end that telling a dog person I don't like dogs immediately...

    I don't understand what the attraction is with dogs.  I don't like how they are lead on collars fastened around their necks....this is quite barbaric and looks cruel. As they are "part of the family" and if so, why put these around their necks, since you don't with humans do you...

    Dogs are a real pain in the bum to raise they need to be house broken and even after they are sometimes you will end up with a pile or a puddle to clean. Then there is the fact that if they are stuck alone at home for too long they get bored and become destructive. If you are not...
