to consider asking men walking really small dogs "Are you embarrassed to be seen walking such a shit dog?"

Please do so. Actually, I always think it's a pretty confident man that has a small dog/car, and it's always the ones who think they have something to prove who have the rotweillers/4X4s.

MamaG Mon 12-Jan-09 14:11:30

There was one today, the dog had a little pink coat on and a diamante collar. My DH would refuse.

YABU as they probably are embarrassed but are doing it out of kindness for their partner/wife/children whose dog it officially is.

You should tell them how great they are to be doing it considering how embarrassing it is. grin

though in the nicest possible way could I ask you substitute "unmanly" for "shit" in your OP? Small dogs aren't shit just by virtue of being small. smile

Though I do know what you mean.

No you're quite right.

There's a woman at dd's school, very glam, she used to be a model and really thinks she's it. Anyway she got a puppy last Christmas and quite a few months later I said to her "your dog never seems to get any bigger". "It's not supposed to get any bigger" she replied, icily.

Stupid little ratty creature with its pink jumper and bulging eyes.

hmm
wtf?
agree with name taken.
why can't men have small dogs?
vv strange

Would you just come aout and call them gay instead?
or summat equally hmm

well.......my dh walks our bouncy 'manly' springer with no probs - however he's the type to not feel emasculated by anything.

My ex-dh cited as one of his reasons for leaving was buying rabbit food as the checkout attendant said 'bit old for that aren't you' in a jokey way and he wasn't manly enough to front it out. (either by lying if he was really embarassed and saying it was his child's or by telling the truth and saying it was his wife's rabbit).

Frankly anything emasculated him cos he was a cock. hmm

All the blokes round our way have 'ard dogs (staffies, rotties etc). All have no job, no IQ, no manners (the men, not the dogs)
Makes me wonder if the two are connected......wink
