Weird Things People Say To Whippet Owners
In the past couple of years I’ve had all sorts of weird things to say to me about Josie and Edie, things I never thought I’d hear from another human if I’m honest. And I think these are that every hound owner can relate to and these are some of the best…
Your dogs too skinny, do you not feed it?
Is your dog ill? Why it is so thin?
Eughhhhh look at that skinny dog.
I could never have a dog that skinny, I feel like it’s cruel.
Oh they’re fast aren’t they.
Don’t they need hours of exercise every day?
Why don’t you race them? You can’t have a dog like that and not race them.
Do you not hunt with them? Bet they’re great at catching rabbits.
I bet I could win a race with your dog (said by many a cyclist)
Dogs don’t need jumpers, it’s mean to put them in jumpers.
Oh look at them shivering, well they are so skinny aren’t they.
Your dog will think my dog is a cat, rabbit, hamster.
I bet they aren’t cuddly at all…insert millions of photographs of hounds snuggling here.
They’re quite weird looking aren’t they really.
Look at them playing, they’re so vicious (sighthound bitey face is not for the faint hearted)
It’s not fair to let your dog run around at that speed.
and many, many more. What weird things have you had said to you about your dog?
