It always stuns me when someone makes a rude statement to me about my dog. I try my hardest not to snap back, but you can bet your last dollar that my mind is doing a lot of trash talking. My friend, Carol Bryant from Fidose of Reality and I were discussing this the other day. We thought that it would be fun to write some of the things that we would actually like to say in rebuttal.
Here are my 10 Snappy Comebacks for a few of the actual Dog Insults that I have received:
1. Wow! It doesn’t look like he misses a meal.
Answer: “Yes, I find that dogs live longer if you feed them on a regular basis.”
2. Are Basset Hounds really as dumb as I’ve heard?
Answer: “He is smart enough to know better than to ask such a rude question.”
3. Do Basset Hounds bark a lot?”
Answer: “It only sounds like barking to people that don’t speak dog.”
4. How does your Basset Hound smell?
Answer: “With his nose.” Yes, I realize they are asking about the infamous Hound Dog Smell. It is just extraordinarily rude.
5. Why does he look so sad?
Answer: “Don’t be silly! That is his happy face. Look at the other end. See his tail wagging?”
6. Someone sure likes to eat.
Answer: “Most living creatures enjoy eating. He’s also a big fan of drinking water.”
7. You sure have a lot of photos of your dog.
Answer: “Yes, I do. You sure have a lot of photos of your kid.”
8. He is so short.
Answer: “He prefers the term vertically challenged.”
9. Do you actually let your dog kiss you?
Answer: “It’s actually me that kisses him most of the time. It’s okay, I’ve had my shots.”
10. Your dog is fat.
Answer: “Do you meant phat like awesome? Yes, yes he is.”
The truth is that some people feel it is okay to say unkind remarks like these because, in their opinion, Bentley is “just a dog.” I can’t imagine someone saying these things about a child. Little do they know that I can go from super nice to crazy dog lady in 1.5 seconds! See how Carol handles such remarks about Dexter on her blog today by clicking here.
