Ignorance is bliss
So yesterday I was told that a co-worker of mine absolutely hates my dog. I know this shouldn’t hurt my feelings but it really bothers me. There is no reason for the dislike other than she’s a really really big gal and she says “that’s too big for me” as a dog Lover herself I’d think she’d have love for any pet big or small. So I’ve stopped bringing her into work when she is there. Just to show some respect for her feelings. I understand big dogs can be intimidating to others because of their size but this kind of reaction happens weekly. When I walk my dog, she’s on a short leash (because she’s still training) people will cross the street and pick up their pets and actually scowl… That, in turn makes me feel she is unaccepted in the pet world. My dog has the sweetest disposition. She’s very friendly and usually well mannered….being a pup still she can get excited and sometimes scared at new things (a snowman scared her) I feel alot of my friends don’t want to be around her only because of her size… Is this just the way it’s going to be for us because ignorance is bliss?
