As a non-dog owner I'm trying to stay out of this issue really. I've been bitten, attacked (in my own garden), be-crapped and deafened beyond the normal call of duty by other people's pooches. I've had a neighbour's semi-feral terrier which ran into our house, climbed the stairs and left its smelly present on the landing carpet. But I can see as well as anyone else that the offending mutts bring personal joy to their owners in direct measure to the usually small inconvenience they bring to others.

I do, however, draw the line at two particularly avoidable behaviours.

I don't appreciate having my leg dry-humped by some sex-starved hound whose owners don't seem able to do more than shout: "Stop it, George, I've told you before about that. Any more and you're going into the kitchen!"

And I really don't like the ones who make a beeline for my crotch and inhale the essences of my person. In the street, too. And despite the presence of a long lead which could be retracted, but isn't. Some people seem to think that sort of thing's funny. Surprising how many of them there seem to be. Grrrr. :evil:

Or maybe I need to change my brand of shower gel? (Edit: I originally wrote "aftershave", but quickly realised that that would send the discussion in all sorts of unpredictable directions.) :lol:

Aw, that's a bit harsh, PD. Inimitable, yes. Or did I perhaps miss the stealth emoji? ;)


Late to reply but I meant what I wrote, possibly.
