Smile Strange Things People Say About My Maltese

A cute dogs attract a lot of attention. Since Maltese are the cutest, people feel the need to come up and say something about them. I'm working on a some snappy responses.

Your dog weighs 5lbs? My dog poops out 5lbs!

We call those 'punt-able' sized in my house.

Is that a dog in a sweater? Honey, come see this! It's a dog wearing a sweater!

Your dog is the size of my dog's head.

Your dog would be a snack for my big dog.

(Picks up dog) She's so cute! Can I pick her up?

Do you have to take her for a walk? Can't you just chase her up the stairs a few times for exercise?

If I get my dog a saddle and teach your dog to ride, we could make a few extra bucks!

lol I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said above! but there was some sly comment on the size by this girl that was at the Vet's office when I was visiting him for Ein's first round shots. SHe said something like, Aww he is TINY! My puppy(she had a chocolate lab puppy) would love to play but I am afraid he might crush him!!! UMMM whoever said anything about letting my Ein out to play with your chocolate lab! But most of the time, (except for that girl's sly comment), people genuinely seem fascinated by gentle demeanor of Maltese and also the overall Cuteness factor... hehehe

My favorite comment was when someone said Gustave reminded them of Martin Short's character in Father of the bride.

I had one guy come up to me at the pet store and ask old she was and I told she was 3. He said " She's only 3 months old ?". He had a lab puppy that was bigger than her.

People don't understand why she wears clothes.

"You can tell she's a princess"

My favorite is when someone is starring at me and then suddenly jumps because Gracie moves.... "Oh my God! I thought it was a stuffed animal!"

Those are very funny. I got into an elevator and Zoe was partially out of her carrier and the woman wanted to know if she was real.

"I only pet "real dogs" ~ hmmpfh!

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?" I replied, " A pure Maltese is really just white (with of course a little light lemon possible). The Tech tried to correct me by firmly saying, "Oh no, they come in all colors!" Nahhh, I think I'll pass on taking Belle to that Vet !
