Im not a huge dog guy. Dont have a problem with them per se. Im warm and friendly with friend's and families' canine pets.

But I think Ive had enough of so-called "dog people."

First of all, its a dog. Not a person. A dog. I know you love it. Good for you. But if you look down your nose at people giving their kids attention, then hand feed your shepard-collie-lab-mix a bone in ribeye every day and let him watch Family Feud, youre a dick.

Second...being a "dog person" doesnt make you special or more empathetic. It just means you like dogs and animals. Thats nice and good and a great quality to have. But it doesnt make you a better human than non dog people in any way. Some people are scared of dogs. Some just arent "animal people." Its probably has something to do with the whole "shitting on the carpet" thing they dont go for. So if you think loving a dog makes you superior, yet you judge non animal people and turn your nose up at parents, kids and old ladies then go back to the sentence above...youre a dick.

Finally, the story that triggered all this...

So my office is dog friendly. Its fine. They run around a bit sometimes. Not a huge deal. But this one woman here is over the top with her dog. For example, I came to her office and said "Hello Dog!" in a warm way and petted him. She went off on me..."HE HAS A NAME!...USE IT!" Then later her dog walks in my office while Im working. So I pet it a bit and go back to work. The owner comes in and says "Pet him! Stop what youre doing and pet him!" So I had to put my project down, turn my chair and give this dog more attention than I give my kids, lest she wont leave and I become literally Hitler in her eyes."

Fast forward a few days later. The dog is making the rounds again. So I decided "Im not dealing with this today." I was on deadline and I admit, still had my clams steamed from the last few interactions with this dog and the owner. So I (calmly) shoe'd the dog out of my office and closed my office door. NOW...turns out the boss of all bosses at my place (also a Dog Person) was with the dog, walking around. He sees me close my door on the dog and I come to find out he turned to the dog owner and a few coworkers in the vicinity and said "He doesnt like dogs, I guess. I really dont like people who dont like dogs."

So NOW....because I didn't play along and treat this dog like God, Im (again) literally Hitler and a bad person in the owner of my company's eyes, and everyone in the office who spends their mornings chasing a dog around with a fucking shovel and a baggie??!!?? What in the actual ****??!!??
Might as well go for the trifecta by criticizing Trump and everyone's careers.

I'm not a fan of the general public either, and I think that's what this thread is about. OP is just a little sensitive about pet parents because he feels like his job might be in jeopardy.
More or less. Tried to make it clear I have no issue with dogs or pets. I DO have issues with dogs or pets, or to be more specific their owners, potentially affecting my professional life. Especially since my livelihood has absolutely zilch to do with dogs or pets.

I'm not sure you know the damage you've done to yourself. Take a look at your status bar. There's less green there than Psy's bank account. If you don't think the status bar is a big deal, I'll let Mojo inform you of its import.

Thanks for the shout out Creasy Bore
Holy fuck did I just do a Franko? He did have some good ones
Creasy’s not worth your time. The man is practically retired, didn’t earn it, and plays with dolls.

What you should do is go the other way with this and start this whole "Cat Person" persona....MY other mug is a CAT...Cat t-shirts, Cat stationary...Put a litter box in your office and a bowl of dry food....For your cat...and then keep closing the door saying the dog is scaring your cat and trying to eat your cat food...

Drop an impromptu deuce in the litter box and blame a cat...
Then one day if your office door is left opened start screaming that you cat has escaped and you're worried that a dog might get him...
And then when they finally call you out on it tell them that that's how crazy they all seem to you when they try and force you to be a "dog person"...

Game...set...match!

First of all, its a dog. Not a person.
I can agree with this. How many people think dogs can be gay because they don't understand dominance and mounting. Dogs are instinct, quit equating them with people.
