I was walking my baby Winston a million years ago and this woman passed by with her big dog of some sort. She said, "if you shoved a stick up it's but it could be a mop." I was so stunned I didn't have a come back.

Everyone calls Dewey a "she" because of the top knot! He doesn't 't care, and neither do I. Yes they do get called dust mops too!

Spookie used to get the dust mop comment at the dog park.

An older man with a huge GS came into the radiologists office yesterday. They do pet therapy. I asked how much the dog weighed.

115#!!!!!! His head really was bigger than Spookie. Sweet dog though.

OMG !!! Okay I just couldn't pass this one up....though it will never be said to you again...my hope anyway.

"Or we could just shove one in your @$$ and call you a vacuum because you suck!"

Just came to mind right away....lol

How can people say such cruel things. When ever i see any dog no matter how big or small i fall in love cuz they are just to cute. I have had a pomeranian, dachshund, pekinese, shih tsu, chow chow, and now a maltese. I will admit i had no idea what a maltese was, went to look at him and as soon as i saw him i looked at my mom (she went with me) and said i must have him and i brought him home, told my hubby i got a and Yoshie jumped up on the bed (hubby works third shift) and gave hubby a big kiss lol before i could get the word dog out lol. I called the vet and took him to have him checked out, brought him back home and went to town and bought a leash, collar, dishes, food, treats, then went and got his license changed over to my name. He has only been with us for 3 years (be 4 years in April) and he will be 10 years old in August but he is a big part of our family.

I actually think that would make a great Halloween costume. Use a mop handle for a leash and dress in curlers and a housecoat.

Snappy answers anyone?

It's our first dog so, we thought we would start small.

We're getting the rest of the dog on the installment plan.

We're not 100% sure but, we think that she's one of my kid's stuffed animals that came to life one night.

What breed is she? Barking squirrel.

Nickee and Mary,

I don't think the comments were meant to be mean. People said odd things to me when my son was an infant. I think people want to make a connection and say the first thing that comes into their heads. Thoughtless, yes. Mean, no. I try to find the humor in the comments. I'm working on funny replies.

Nickee, please tell Yogi we love his fashion photos. :-)

Me calling a local Vet to report a missing Maltese. The Vet Assistant actually said something like, "She's a Maltese okay, so what color is she?"

Nahhh, I think I'll pass on taking Belle to that Vet !
simple come-back: "yes, you are absolutely right, but only if you are smoking pot."

Maybe that's the case but how can anyone say shove a stick up it's bum and it'd be a mop (or anything)..the part of shoving something up it's bum is what got me. And the part of asking you if she can pick her up when she ALREADY picked her up...people got nerve.
