No using disagreements on this forum, that doesn't count. Today I was walking Layla and this girl thought my dog liked her dog cause they were opposite sex. (my dog is fixed, hers is too) I thought she was joking but she was serious.
About 4 years ago, my brother's dog had 2 litters of puppies back to back. Hating to see them go to the pound, I took pics of them and gave puppies away at work. One of the guys I work with comes up to me just last month and asks me if I have any more of those puppies that I was giving away. He would like one for his young sons. He was serious! I referred him to the local animal shelter. To think this guy is actually reproducing. LOL!
Had a painter come to my house dude........my female Peake was nursing some little ones.........this painter dude liked my dog and asked if I'd stud him out (while the litter was nursing....directly in front of him). I think 20 years of paint fumes altered his perception a little.........
a lady at work lost a collie at 6 y/o to cancer. he had been neutered. they got a new one, and refuse to neuter it. why? because fido (or whatever) died without ever having been laid, and they want to make sure he (the new one) gets laid in his lifetime.
When a friend of mine learned I was adopting a wolfdog, they asked "will it bite?" Why the heck would I adopt a dog that I knew was going to bite me!? Other times when people see my snakes they ask if they are venomous. I know not everyone is an expert on snakes, but this is a Black rat snake. You can't get more "un-venomous" than that. ~Seij
I've heard all kinds of mistaken identity things that are beyond stupid. I've got a friend who has been asked if her akita was a saint bernard. Cause you know they look so much alike.... I haven't been asked any recent stupid questions, but when I took my mixed breed dog bowen to a Montgomery Kennel club meeting, he was bouncing off walls and everyone kept saying, "Oh he's just a puppy, istn' he.." No.. he's 4 years old. They said they thought he was a puppy because his teeth are so clean and white, like they just came in. So I guess that was a nice compliment.
Some guy ask if feeding gunpowder really makes dogs mean. B/c his stepdad when he was a kid bred Rotts and fed them gunpowder and they bit the kids and turned on them and had to be shot. And another guy on a different board bred his pit mix @ 9 months old b/c "everybody needs some nookie" Some guy who owned a pit and met mine, ask if mine was an english or american pit? Some one said all red nose pits are currs. Was asked what kind of pits are brindle pits? Is that a rare breed of pit? I've had the mistaken identity thing. When ven was a small pup this dude asked if he was a mini boxer puppy??? When he was a little older some guy thought he was a shar pei. When Santana was a pup I was asked if she was a Boxer or Boxer mix. When Twist was a pup a lady told me "What a cute American Bulldog puppy." I also had some one argue that my fawn Boxer MUST be a Pit Bull, first they asked and when I said NO she's a BOXER they said are you sure, because she looks like a Pit Bull to me. She must be a Pit Bull and she has her tailed docked. Some people are just morons
When I was young, I was walking my aunt's minpins for her, and someone at the park asked, "Are those puppies?" and I was like, "No, they're 4 and 2" and they said, "Oh, I always thought dobermans were a lot bigger than that. Why do people use those as guard dogs for? You could step on them."
At Petco not long ago told me that he had never seen a greyhound the color of Oscar. All I said was I bet you never saw a greyhound that weighed 150 too? He asked if they were bred to be giant sized. I told him that I guess so considering Oscars parents are great dane. I mean duh!!! Does anyone think Oscar looks greyhound? And I also don't like the horse comments.

Cricketmom-that reminds me of the scene from the Pink Panther Movie / Inspector: "Does your dog bite?" Guy behind counter: "no" Inspector: "nice doggy." Dog: bark bark bark, bites his hand. Inspector-"I thought you said your dog did not bite!" Guy-"That is not my dog!"
"My dog would never bite anyone" is really annoying. It's an excuse to just dismiss the possibility of it happening, and not take training and socialization seriously. These are the same people we see on the news saying: "I don't know what went wrong! He's never bitten anyone before!"
allie, my friend gets that question a lot about her longcoat chi too, but its not because the coat is obviously long, it's because they confuse her chihuahua for a pomeranian all the time for some reason.
