So it would seem to me that by eliminating dog owners from your potential dating pool, you are severely limiting the number of romantic partners who will get along with and love your dog.Side note for the record: It's not only other dog owners who get along with my dog.My current romantic partner is not a dog owner and in fact generally prefers cats over dogs.
This commenter gets around this problem by not dating men with dogs.
In doing so, she guarantees that her dating partners will be able to sleep over at her place and that she'll never be asked to leave her dog alone overnight. One dating habit dog owners share is the fact that any potential romantic partner MUST get along with and love their dog.
In my experience, the people most likely to get along with my dog are other dog owners and anecdotal evidence indicates this is true of other dog owners I know.
My cartoon today is about the disappointment one feels when they trust someone to fix things and that person turns out to be a charlatan.
We’ve all experienced this with politicians and one can read that message as the subtext to the Wizard of Oz: The man at the top, the Great Wizard of Oz, is just a regular guy pulling switches and levers to make himself seem more powerful than he really is.
A person can also easily see this as an allegory of Donald Trump’s current campaign.
Here's a question for you: When you date, do you want your romantic partners to also have dogs?
Or, if you're out of the dating market, did you seek out people with dogs to date when you were actively dating?
I ask because this was recently posted in a Facebook group for the podcast in response to a discussion about the Tindog app (Side note: Yes, Tindog is indeed an app, and perhaps I'll discuss it in a future post): The lady who posted the comment is correct. The owner needs to be there to let/take the dog outside.
When you have a dog, you can't sleep over at a romantic partner's place. As a result, if a pair (or other number) of romantic partners all have dogs, sleepovers aren't going to happen.
At the end of the night, the partners are going to have to split up and return to their respective canine companions unless said canine companions get along.
