I’ll start out by saying I love dogs in general. I have two of them. They are the best… but they are also not small.
There is something that irks me about walking into someones house and finding a giant-rat-like animal licking my ankles. I find that not only do these animals not resemble dogs, but they don’t really act like dogs either. At least not a dog with any real level of intelligence.
I’ve decided to make a small list of reasons why I don’t like these 12 pound rodents.
#1: High pitched bark – Who wants to listen to that all day? The sad thing is that many of these small dogs think they are tough so of course they bark every chance they get. Sometimes I use them to tune the high F# key on my piano. Besides that, it is worthless.
#2: Lack of intelligence: I’m not going to generalize all small dogs. But, from what i’ve seen, I can say with a great degree of confidence that many small breeds of dog have an even smaller brain. E.G. My friend’s dog constantly runs into his glass door. The dog has been doing this for years. YEARS! I do have to say it’s kind of funny, so maybe this technically isn’t a fault.
#3: Like to get stepped on: Being both small and stupid is not the best combination. Dogs of this size must enjoy getting trampled because they always wait for me to come through the door and strategically place themselves under my feet. If you want to avoid costly vet bills because Fido has the Nike logo engraved in his head, don’t get a small dog.
#4: Annoying bite: Now no one really wants to get bitten by a dog. But the purpose of a bite is to inflict pain. God forbid anyone would ever try to kidnap your dog, you would hope your dog would be able to deter it in some shape or form. A bite from a small dog sort of feels similar to accupuncture. You get scared at first but then realize it isn’t so bad. This is not a good trait to have.. unless of course your dog bites you all the time.
So in conclusion, small dogs piss me off. Does anyone agree??
