Your dog said what?

April 6, 2011

That's my girl - outstanding in her field
The weedy field in question. With the dog in question.

Goldie was digging in her favorite place, a huge, weedy field down by the harbor. It has never been developed and isn’t fenced, so it has turned into a de facto dog park, frisbee field and place to hang out and drink a beer or six by the water (gauging from the number of beer bottles in the weeds).

A lady with a beagle on a leash walked up.

“Oh, he found something, did he?” (people always assume Goldie is a boy because she is big. Sexism ahoy.)

“No, she just likes to dig. She rarely finds anything,” I replied.

“Molly says,” said the lady, nodding toward the beagle, “‘My mommy doesn’t let me dig on other people’s property.'”

Oh yes she did. She quoted her dog to make a passive-aggressive dig at me for letting my dog behave like a hooligan. I stood there, dumbfounded.

My question is this: What should I have said that Goldie said in response to her dog, Molly?

    Seriously? People! Grr!

    I think I would have just laughed in her face and walked in the other direction.

      Instead of just mouthing “F*** YOU!” behind her back?

        I wouldn’t have mouthed “f*** you!”, but I really can’t speak for my dog.

    What a stinking hypocrite. Molly’s quite happy to take a dump on other people’s property though, isn’t she? Goldie says “F*** off, Molly”.

      I didn’t check her bowel status, but Molly did have that mischevious look on her face.

    Really, Molly? I suppose you do everything that b*tch says?

    Suebob deadpans, “Wow, that’s impressive your dog can talk. Perhaps, you should take that show on the road.”

    Goldie says, “Molly must not be allowed to have any fun! Sucks to be Molly!”

    Goldie says Molly should grow a pair.

      Goldie could teach Molly a thing or two about that, since she doesn’t take orders from anyone.

    Goldie says, “Molly, I’m sorry your person is a such a passive aggressive nitwit. Do you ever want to bite her?”

      I’m sure Molly would be happier with me.

    Jack thinks Goldie’s wonderful, and who the heck cares what Molly thinks?

    ‘funny, Goldie says Molly’s a passive-aggressive bitch.’ or ‘wow, didn’t Son of Sam hear dogs talking to him? You should get that checked’

    How about, “Yes, we would hate to ruin this lovely manicured lawn, that someone is clearly taking such good care of! hahaha”

    I heartily agree with, “Molly sounds like a passive-aggressive little bitch.”

    *blink* really? maybe mollie’s mommy needs a therapist.

    • April 14, 2011 09:18

      Because she is in Son of Sam territory there!

    Goldie says: my owner knows better than to use her dog to insult strangers.
