Top 10 Reasons Why I Hate Dogs

  1. Ugly DogThey are loud. BARK!! BARK!! BARK!! Even reading those three words is annoying!
  2. They are dirty. They lay down their dog shit wherever they are – On your lawn, on my lawn, in their own beds, on your bed. And on the odd occasion I end up with dog shit on my shoes and don’t find out until I’ve walked through my house… by GOLLY THAT MAKES ME FURIOUS!!
  3. They smell. They need to be washed like a car otherwise they infect uphostry (couches, carpets, curtains) with their stench.
  4. They get angry. And frankly I’m scared of most of them.
  5. They dribble. And their slime gets onto your clothes. eeeuch!
  6. They are ugly. Ok, ok, I’ll make a few exceptions for some puppies, but in general I don’t think they are an attractive animal.
  7. They need so much attention. They go mental if they are left alone for long periods of time (much to the annoyance of the neighbours i.e. me!)
  8. They wreck stuff. Chewing, knawing, eating, scratching
  9. They render owners backyards unusable. Don’t you dare walk back there with bare feet!
  10. One killed my cat! (June 08) The cutest fricken cat in the world too :(

Dog lovers can be extremely unsanitary, and it brings out my inner germophobe. Dogs themselves have gross habits then the people who “wuv” them can be so sloppy and dirty. People let their dogs lick their hands and then touch food, their face, you, everything. Then they talk about how dogs’ mouths are cleaner than humans’ mouths when a simple Google search would tell you this is far from the truth. These are the same people who sleep in the same beds with their dogs. (When I found out that this was common practice among dog lovers, I was horrified. A dog in bed… even large breed dogs. There are no words. Just absolute disgust.)

DFH. It is appalling that these people are willing to pay money to keep alive a dog that pulled the face off a child. And despite the rhetoric the dog was not abused. The picture of the so called hell the mauler lived in shows typical desert. there is some type of ground cover there. The dog had water and it appears there was even a tree in a pot in an effort to provide shade. And despite the gasps of horror dogs have lived outside for eons. From the looks of most homes that have dogs they should still be outside.

BDH Dog owners often let their dogs eat off their plates. Unless those dishes are sterilized you would be at risk of illness or disease.

So I post here sometimes. Any regulars may remember me talking about my sister in laws pit. Well the otherday me and my hsuband went over. I stayed in the car he got off and rang the doorbell on the fence . You can hear the dog barking in the back and my husband needed something from them o wanted to go to the door. I told him not to. Their wood door was open and their screen door had a broken screen which was useless. His nephew had to let the dog out instead of checking to see who was causing the dog to bark. At that point my husband was inside their fence and all of a sudden the dog runs thrpugh the door and straight to him. He moved so fast out the gate and closed it. I yelled and a second later his nephew comes out. Freaken moronic person to let the dog out. Right ? Seems more like a trap house than a home. A trap house is a house people use to sell drugs out of. They make me sick. When the air clears im calling animal control.

I scrolled down on that page and found ONE story about a cat and it casually listed all the abuse it suffered until it was mauled by dogs and died in his arms because as it lay gutted he felt bad for it.
So it was completely fine to let this hurt , sick struggling cat be batted around, rocks thrown , hoses turned on him but he felt bad when he was finally dying.
That my friends is how the world sees cats. If this had been a dog it would have been rescued and held up as an example of human cruelty. Somehow the author seemed to think his sudden revelation was inspiring.

Everyone Was Warned Not To Touch Him, But This Guy Did. This Is Heartbreaking.

This is how we keep our sanity in this dog worshipping world. We found that national parks in Quebec, Canada do not allow dogs other than accredited service dogs. This rule is strickly enforced, thank goodness. So, for at least 1 week a year we camp in the Quebec national parks and escape. It’s heaven enjoying a morning coffee without the sound of barking. Going for a walk without looking at the ground all the time to avoid a pile of dog sh*t. Imagine, sitting on the beach enjoying a cool drink without a stinking, barking dog running around…bliss. This small break helps in the summer. In the winter, the windows are closed so we don’t hear the barking as much and enjoy watching dog worshippers freezing their bums off while they try to pick up sh*t with mittens on.

dogsfromhell September 27, 2015 at 11:06 am


What I noted about this article was that the dog was considered to have a “disorder” because it was well behaved aka it behaved like a cat. It was deemed to have a problem because it looked out the window rather than being a psycho, hyper-vigilant, territorial barker.

Ah now I get it. I knew it was somehow being anti cat. But your point is well taken.

I guess I would have though dog owners with kids would care a bit more about hygiene since they have to make sure the kids stay healthy and clean above everything else, but I suppose I was horribly wrong. In fact, if that wasn’t bad enough, just yesterday as my sister and I were walking downtown, we had to walk around a group of about 6 people on a sidewalk; 4 adults (one man with a dog) and 2 kids. Right as we passed by, one of the little boys grabs the dogs face and tries to kiss it in the mouth. None of the adults said a damn thing. My sister and I remarked to ourselves on how gross it was and how we don’t understand dog owner’s fascination with kissing their nasty mutts and letting them lick people (especially kids) in the face. Especially when they eat their own crap.

Oh, and with that said, as we were walking we passed a giant pile of dog crap on the ground:/

mfatpony@aol.com September 28, 2015 at 12:06 pm

While gross to see people with dogs licking their face, dogger often use the kid put his face in my dogs as an excuse when the dog bites or mauls.

dogsfromhell September 28, 2015 at 2:10 pm

Excellent point mfp. There seems to be no boundaries they will not manipulate… Bottom line: NO EXCUSES. And we as a culture need to hold them accountable.

dogsfromhell September 28, 2015 at 2:23 pm

I am house shopping again. I found a nice fixer but the deal breakers for me were not the need for updated electrical, not the kitchen and bath rehab, not the exterior work needed…nope it was 1)The two nasty floor rats on the one side and the howling beagle bastard on the other. 2) The overwhelming, nauseating, repulsive stench of filthy dog and dog piss through out the entire lower floor. The carpet in one of the rooms was coated with disgusting white dog hair. The fan was on in the room to try and mitigate the smell but all it did was circulate the dog hair throughout the house. Now I have it up in my nose and in my throat and so does my daughter who went to see it with me. It will linger until AT LEAST tomorrow. How could anyone ever live this way???! It was beyond disgusting. I would have bought the place except for the double whammy, current dogs and former dog tenant. *F* dogs in the biggest way possible.

And that’s why I spend my spare time moderating this site.

mfatpony@aol.com September 28, 2015 at 4:57 pm

We looked at some foreclosures. Without fail the dog damage was the walk away. That and one that was passable had dogs barking on all sides. Drove back later and they were still barking. We only deal with one set of morons right now.
Cats can do their fair share of damage. Most of that seems to be confined to door jambs from either lack of training or lack of posts. And corners in kitchens. .closets and laundry rooms where in one case I could see the outline of the litter box with stains everywhere around it. Not the cats fault if the owners never clean the box.
The dog damage went to the sub floors in every room in one house. I’m going to guess unless who ever buys that mess will have to pull the floor joists out or the smell will always creep out.

Laantz September 28, 2015 at 5:05 pm

1)they piss on everything
2) they shit everywhere
3)they can’t leave anything alone
4)they stink
5)they shed their dander everywhere
6)they shed hair(fur) all over everything
7)theyr’e the idiots of the animal, except for the fact they have a great sense of smell and can be trained to do certain things because of “how they are wired”, they are otherwise stupid idiotic animals
8) their feces is full of nasty diseases
9) they lick their own assholes – then they kiss their owners(proof of how stupid and filthy their owners are)
10) they bark

About 7 years ago I passed up the perfect house because of dogs…sucked because I really liked the place.Originally saw it online and fell in love with it.Not to big or small,brand new so I’d be the first to live in it,decent yard with a tornado shelter,a big kitchen(fully stocked)and bathroom and best of all it was affordable.When I went to see it in person I knew I could never live there because there was no less than 3 dogs outside yammering on and on.It was the perfect example of dog owners ruining a lovely neighborhood.

Anna September 29, 2015 at 8:13 pm

Oh, the fur, the fur…fur everywhere. If I knew a) how much many breeds shed and b) how ridiculously needy dogs are, I wouldn’t have ever entertained the idea of getting a dog even I liked everything else about them. People sugarcoat it very well — “moderate shedding”, “friendly”. I sweep and vacuum nearly every day, brush my dog every day with an expensive brush made for dogs that shed a lot, and it’s still not enough. In fact, in the right light, if you watch my dog doing anything, you can see the hairs flying right off of her with every move she makes. It’s ridiculous. I’ve confined her to a tiled area so she doesn’t shed all over my house but I still track some in with my feet. I’m counting down the days until her uncontrollable shedding and neediness are someone else’s problem.

Stephanie September 30, 2015 at 3:00 pm

I am so happy to have found this site! The last few days have been simply glorious, reading through all the posts here, especially “I hate my dog!” It is so great to know there are others like me, and I can fully express myself about my hatred for these filthy s**tbags! Naturally almost everyone I know is a dog lover, so I have found myself constantly watering down my own feelings–like, “Well, I’m just not really a dog person”, and even going so far as to tolerate and even pretend to like or be impressed by someone’s dumbass mutt, simply because they are my friend and I don’t want to offend. And lord knows I have tried and tried to see what people like about dogs, but even “good” dogs are ugly and stinky and annoying as hell! My bf lives with his buddy and buddy’s gf. Well naturally gf decided to get a dog, because what fun is having a peaceful, clean home? Anyway, I have to admit that he’s a “good” dog– he hardly barks, and when the buddy and gf aren’t home he just sits quietly on the couch awaiting their return and doesn’t bother me at all, but he’s still a moron! What prompted me to find this site is being woken up to my boyfriend saying,”What the hell is all over the floor?”. So I wake up and look–that stupid POS got into both the upstairs and downstairs bathroom trash and had a feast on used tampons! Disgusting! Not to mention embarrassing, since this isn’t even my house! And of course when I got angry, the first thing I hear is how it’s “my fault”, apparently because I need to shut and bolt the bathroom door, and I need to remember to do this every time so dips**t won’t get into it. Why the hell does anyone need a dog??? When they first got this dumb*ss, he climbed on the windowsill and knocked over the potted palm I got for my bf a few years ago. Broke the pot and everything. It’s been repotted of course, but the palm hasn’t been the same since. Now its leaves are yellow at the tips and no amount of repositioning or water seems to help. Did I get an apology? Of course not! He’s just being a dog! Everyone should understand and think its so cute! The dog ignores me completely (which is FINE) except of course when I’m cooking or eating. When I’m cooking, it always stands in the kitchen doorway with the most godawful DUMB look, not just his face but his whole stance, its like he’s staring at me but his head is cocked at a weird crooked angle which makes him look positively brain damaged. Telling him “NO” and “Nothing for you!” gives me SOOOO much satisfaction! Anyway, thank you so much for existing! Dogs and the attitude of most dog owners make me sick! I’m a cat lover, and one of my longtime friends (who is now an EX friend) was for some reason trying to engineer an argument about dogs vs. cats, even though we’ve known each other since elementary school and my dog hatred isn’t exactly news. So of course, she trots out the usual crap–“Dog’s save lives! Dogs will save their owners from burning buildings and lead people to safety, dogs help the blind, dogs are loyal and soooooooooo loving, dogs will play with you, cats won’t do that, cats just ignore you!” And the best one, when I wouldn’t somehow cave in and say “Oh yes you’re right, these statistics have magically changed my mind and now I love dogs. Down with cats!” is “Snoopy is a dog! You love Snoopy!” OH MY GODDDDD. Talk about lack of respect for my preference! I have had 4 cats in my life, and not once have I felt somehow cheated because the cat didn’t greet me at the door every night or play stupid games of fetch, nor have I ever seen the appeal of such things. I am happy to let cats be cats. That’s why most dog owners hate cats, because “they aren’t any fun, they don’t do tricks.” Why does an animal have to do tricks and other stupid crap to have value as a pet? Yeah, guess what else my cat doesn’t do? Crap and piss EVERYWHERE, destroy literally everything not bolted down, bark incessantly and stink like hell! So yes this was a long rant, if anyone actually reads this, thank you for your attention. It feels good to get this off my chest! Down with dogs!!!

Anna September 30, 2015 at 4:30 pm

Exactly! Dog lovers can’t comprehend that some people just aren’t “dog people” and the mere presence of a dog irritates them. I used to think I liked dogs but this was before I started working with them. My dog is a “good dog” (only because most dogs are completely untrained nuisances) but she still stares at me 24/7, sheds 24/7, is hyper, greedy, nauseatingly needy, etc. Not to mention that when you live with a dog they dominate your time because you have to attend to their every need since they are incapable of doing anything themselves.

I like this blog because most people don’t get it or pretend they don’t get it because it’s not socially acceptable to dislike dogs.

Monica September 30, 2015 at 6:03 pm

Im so digusted by my neighbor . She has 2 dogs a large and small. And she only cleans up dog poo once a week. So theres atleast 20 piles of poo outside and its so disgusting. HER back yard is getting worse! The dog killed all the grass. Its dogs and digs. They never walk it. When I told her she should get rid of it she said she cant cause the kids will cry. Ya well shes going to cry if she gets fined for smelling up all the fresh air. That poor dog. It never sees anything but walls 24.7

kn October 1, 2015 at 11:06 am

Stephanie, I read your entire rant, and I am behind it 100 percent!!! I HATE the dumb way dogs look, and I hate the tired argument of “dogs are better than cats”. Those people never had a cat as a best friend, obviously. I positively revile dog owners, as well. I can’t stand to witness how they indulge their ugly sh*thounds and live in its filth.

mfatpony@aol.com October 1, 2015 at 12:07 pm

Most dog owners can’t distinguish between the way a cat behaves and the subservient nature bred into a dog. Instead they have been convinced by the pet industry that somehow all the things dogs do are based on their noble character and near human feelings.
The neighbors stupid mutts are quiet for the time being. Nearly a week of peace. Of course as long as they have them you know it’s coming. Dog owners simply aren’t responsible enough to make sure their pets aren’t a public nuisance with out constant reminders. You know yelling at them. Camcorders. Calling AC 7 days a week.
Aside from the very small pool of working dogs left in westernized countries. Cattle, Search and Rescue, Working hunting dogs and the handful of genuine SDs. That and the smattering of dog owners that actually TRAIN their dogs. I know a few. The whole dog craze is built around a marketing scam using an endless free resource to market increasingly expensive products for. The Pit Bull advocates represent the psychotic break of this mass brainwashing.

Adder October 1, 2015 at 5:02 pm

Ugh, we’re about to have to start an ongoing battle with the new neighbors over their PoS dogs. These idiots have what looks to be a 6×10 kennel crammed with two large dogs. Our property is fenced in, but these things are basically right up on our fence. The dogs bark constantly. The dogs go batshit crazy any time we approach the back of our yard. Not only that, they bark all through the night and early morning. It is infuriating. And, as a lovely bonus, the owners don’t clean the kennel out at all. Nothing like waking up to the scent of dog crap wafting over your fence. My sister and her fiance are slightly ignorant as to how difficult solving this issue is going to be. I’m not looking forward to the uphill battle we’re about to face -_-.

mfatpony@aol.com October 2, 2015 at 7:15 am

Adder, my heart goes out to you. I bet they think asking them to quiet and clean up their canine pigsty is going to be well received. Or better yet one call to AC will result in them suddenly being good citizens.
You might start out with a call about the dogs being abused and living in filth. Might as well get the camcorder running also.

Pat October 2, 2015 at 11:31 am

Dogs really suck to no end. This site is positively excellent. Just shows you how much bullsh** we all put up with just so we don’t offend our neighbors. When we advertised the apartment in the building we just renovated we said “1 cat, no dogs allowed. Period.” What did our tennant do? Begged and pleaded to let her small dog in, a toy poodle that looks like LambChop (the puppet kids show) and sounds like it’s dying constantly. I lived on a quiet dead-end street before and could hear a pin drop, now the thing just wales incessantly. No joke, this thing doesn’t even bark it sounds like a small child caught in a bear trap just yelling all day “eeeeehh aaaah eeehhhh!” I don’t for the life of me understand the appeal. She NEVER walks it. It just stares at the walls screaming all day. I work from home to and I’m one of those people who need to actually think in order to craft a sentence properly. Thought my life couldn’t get any more unbearable, but then she gets a boyfriend to move in! Just my luck- you guessed it! He’s got a pomeranian. He’s a divorcee who says he got “stuck with the little bastard.” F…M….L. So he doesn’t even like the lil mutt bastard! I thought the toy poodle was Satan himself but its got nothing on the Pomeranian. The barking with thing was time a hundred. Barked at the breeze, its shadow, the moon, god forbid a stair creeked or a person walked by- forget it. This is how derranged this thing is- I told them you either buy a bark prevention shock collar or start looking for another place to live, because in addition to sleep and money, I’m losing my sanity. So they get the shock collar and turn it up to the “high output” shock setting and the thing still barks right through the shocks that are delivered. And believe me that sh** hurts, I put it on myself and tried it on “low.” So it barks still, not quite as loudly, but has these little painful yelps after from the shocks.

Unreal. I’ve thought about getting the key to her place and going in and taking the two dogs and slamming their heads together a couple of times while they’re not home, but I don’t want to do anything criminal while I’m on probation for other anger related issues. I can’t win. Why anyone would own one of these little disgusting bark machines is beyond me. I just don’t understand the appeal. Are people so lonely that they need to follow a thing around that craps all over the place and itself, licking you with it, tirelessly begging for more more more? I just don’t get it.

Amur October 2, 2015 at 3:03 pm


“Man who went broke flying 1500 miles to adopt a puppy is finally home.”

Is this guy for real? 1500 miles for a dog??? A person in the comments said that another article stated that he is between jobs and lives with his mother. He can’t even afford to support himself, but gets a pet that’s expensive. Idiot.

mfatpony@aol.com October 2, 2015 at 9:51 pm

Amur. What a complete and total idiot. Even more so the rescue /shelter that let him take the dog with no way to support it.
Even dumber , the gofundme crowd.
Guess they were all out of dogs at his local shelter.

Had Enough w/Canines October 3, 2015 at 7:50 am

Stephanie and Pat, you will find this site cathartic. It’s like walking against the crowd and then turning around. Not walking with the others, just standing in their way.

I have had enough hearing about the virtues of working dogs. I have seen the most unkempt seeing eye dogs you would mistake for one of MFP’s neighbor’s mutts. They are filthy and they don’t do anything because the blind person is already with somebody who is guiding them!

Police dogs do nothing useful. They scare, bite and bark. Thaaat’s about it. The only sniffing thing they do is find bodies, and even some of them can’t do that. They do not distinguish between live people and I have never seen one find a live person, when the handler doesn’t know where they are. Not even bloodhounds can do it. Sure, some can find a body, but usually by the time a human could also.

I have seen a police dog being utilized to find drugs and a bomb. Both times the respective dogs failed. There was supposedly bomb scent in a filing cabinet and the handler kept returning to it but the dog wasn’t interested. The other dog was given hand signals that told him about the drugs and the dog ignored it because, “he’s hungry” the handler said.

Another was a lab search and rescue dog supposed to find me in an earthquake drill. Not a chance. Dog smelled all kinds of people, but could not distinguish ones lost and missing from safe and secure. I haven’t ever seen a dog do that training right.

You know the thing in the movies, they wave the child’s sweater in the dog’s face and he takes off right to the kid? Have you ever actually seen any dog do that successfully? Not me.

I listen to the police scanner every night all night long for years and have never heard a police dog find any suspect. I’ve heard plenty of bites and deployments, but again, they seem useless.

To me, dogs, all dogs are totally a waste of time, money and care. Service dogs are no different. And don’t even get me started on go-fund-me’s for a freaking animal that the owner can’t afford.

mfatpony@aol.com October 3, 2015 at 1:26 pm

I read an article about a search and rescue that was changing peoples minds and using pit bulls to track lost people.
Had Enough dogs can be a working tool but more and more agencies that used to buy well bred dogs are repurposing shelter mutts.
The introduction of the seeing eye dog enabled the beginning of new attitudes to people who had what were considered disabilities and allowed them to enter the workforce and any common space with a dog that was genetically selected, and trained and socialized from birth with only a few making the cut to actual SD. .
Somehow from that we have white trash parents with their prison tattoos and their dirty looking kid pushing an unleashed, no collar pit bull in a shopping cart through the food section at wally.
Our local wally doesn’t need a greeter. They need to hire an independent security person who is assigned the task of weeding out the pretenders as well as the carts full of shoplifted merchandise.
Police dogs and Search and Rescue dogs are only as useful as their handlers who know how to use the dogs. The damn things don’t get up and clock in. Nor do they have the slightest concept of saving someone or stopping the endless war on drugs.
Even good hunting dogs will lose a scent and have to wait for their handler to scout an area to set them off again.
Had Enough within a few years technology and medical science is going to make using a dog obsolete in all of it’s current applications.
Meanwhile I take carts out of the parking lot now and hose them with Lysol.

Below is an estimate of individuals with a visual disability as reported by the National Federation of the Blind

The number of non-institutionalized, male or female, ages 16 through 75+, all races, regardless of ethnicity, with all education levels in the United States reported to have a visual disability in 2013.

Total (all ages): 7,327,800
Total (16 to 75+): 6,846,000
Women: 3,793,300
Men: 3,052,700
Age 18 to 64: 3,805,600
Age 65 and older: 2,966,300

Next is an estimate of the number of people who actually use a dog to assist them. This statistic is reported by a dog cultist organization promoting guide dogs so my guess is its inflated. Still an incredibly low number even if HALF the people with a visual disability were low vision enough to require a dog.

Guiding Eyes for the Blind estimates that “there are approximately 10,000 guide dog teams currently working in the United States. Another frequently cited statistic is that only about 2 percent of all people who are blind and visually impaired work with guide dogs.”

BigDogHater October 3, 2015 at 7:29 pm

Just saw some gifs on some random Tumblr where a man somehow heard a dog barking underground and dug up the area around it to get the dog from underground. Now the man is being called a hero by some people because he “saved” some random mutt.

Meanwhile, elsewhere, a cop shot a pitbull that was terrorizing a playground with another pit, and the pit nutters lose their minds (To my surprise, a lot of people said that cop’s action were fully justified and said they’d do the same).

So basically for some people, save a dog, you’re a hero. Shoot a viscous dog to save people, you’re a heartless villain. Smh, what is happening in this world?

mfatpony@aol.com October 3, 2015 at 7:49 pm

DFH It really just proves a point doesn’t it.
The Service Dog Industry is a bloated monster with tentacles reaching far beyond even the most liberal application.
When my husband had to have a temp handicapped parking permit it had his name and picture on it. The idea that a similar system to regulate the abuse of service dogs will violate their rights is just one more deflection to keep the highly profitable fraud alive and booming.

Yet another dog encounter on an plane.
Luckily for the owner Hemy wasn’t on this flight with me.
It was on the way back to Winnipeg airport and we were on an cathay paciffic boeing 777-200ER.
Who here has been on a 777? if you have, you know how big those planes are.
We were at 39,000 feet on a east bound flight to Winnipeg and we were about 40 minutes after we got to our altitude, and the dog two rows up from me started barking.
After about 15 minutes, I moved back 14 rows, and went from a window seat to an isle seat, it was an aircraft with a 4-3-4 seat configuration, I went from 22A to an isle seat in the middle row of 3 in row 36, I believe it was 36D on a Cathay Paciffic 777.
Guess what? I could still hear the damned dog barking. I moved back again, to seat 44D, still the dog’s noise was autable. Luckily the movie had started and I listened to that for about two hours.
When I got up to go to the bathroom, guess what? I could still ehar it. It sounded like a larger dog, it had a deep bark.
I put on the music for a few hours after I got back to the seat, then it was about 9 hours later that the dog fell silent, i guess it was tired of barking.
I say that the owner is lucky that Hemy wasn’t on this flight because she would have given the owner an earfull. Let’s just say that the owner would learn never to mess with a mancunian.

Cathay apologized as this dog owner has had multiple warnings about that dog, and I’m told that that dog won’t be allowed on cathay paciffic flights ever again.
Here’s hoping for more airlines to do that, glory to Cathay Paciffic, you just gained a new regular!

dogsfromhell October 4, 2015 at 5:39 am

You have to wonder why they wouldn’t have medicated it so it wouldn’t disturb other passengers for 9 freaking hours. The answer of course is because the owners are selfish, narcissistic assholes. If it was an alleged ES dog sounds like the mutt needed its own emotional support. What a complete asshole.

Having an ESD doesn’t make you special. Just stupid. I have yet to see anyone with one of these things where it didn’t simply redirect the anxiety to the dog.
I have not seen a dog in the last two shopping trips. It’s important to remember that even if you get the shrug off from management to corporate they do listen. And in the case of the pit bull in a cart with the kid pushing it at a near run I likely wasn’t the only one raising a stink.

I was recently on a Cathay Paciffic boeing 777-300ER, in seat 22A, a window seat on a flight from Hong Kong to Vancuover. There was a man with a large pit bull-like dog in seet 20D.
TO give you an idea, the Cathay Paciffic economy class on the boeing 777-300ER is a 4-3-4 seat configuration. Tis means that the dog owner was on the isle.
About 15 minutes or os after we reached 39,000 feet, our cruising altitude, the dog began barking loudly.
I thought, “maybe it’ll stop.”
An hour and a half later, I buzzed a flight attendant, and she helped me move to row 36 E, an isle seet in the middle row. I could still hear the barking.
A cuople hours later, the same flight attendant moved me back to 48E, but we found that I could still hear the dog. There were no other seats free on the plane.
I watched the movie, the Great Gatsby, then after the movie, the dog was still barking!
Finally about 2 or so hours away from Vancouver, it finally shut up.
The dog owner is lucky that Hemy wasn’t flying with me, otherwise they woudl have had an ear-full and would have learned to never mess with a Mancunian.
Now Cathay Paciffic had actually warned this dog owner previously, and after I landed, the flight attenndant found me and told me that that person would never be allowed to bring his dog on another Cathay Paciffic fliht again.
If only more airlines would do what Cathay did. Also thanks to Kerri Wong, the flight attendant.

Here’s the kicker: according to http://www.cathaypacific.com/cx/en_CA/travel-information/baggage/check-in-baggage/pets.html pit bulls aren’t even allowed on Cathay Paciffic flights anyway. How’s that for you guies? I bet the owner tried passing it off as an ESD, but like I said in my previous post, Cathay Paciffic has asked him multiple times to keep his dog quiet during flights, and he didn’t. so, it’s banned from ever flying Cathay Paciffic ever again.

You know why the servis dog is still not going the way of the dot matrix printer?
Wel simply, the industry is taking advantage of people who want to bring their dogs everywhere.
Like the one Christian delt with last week on that Cathay Paciffic flight.
I’ll be you all th emoney in your bank account that that dog that Christian had to deal with was a fake service animal or a phoney service dog. In reality, I bet the owner just wanted to bring the dog on a vacatino with him. Like a dog will care whether it’s in Canada or California.
I’ve also heard people admitting that hey fudged their service dog pass, because “i can’t weve my pwecious wittow baby at home!”
Sickening, innit?

I may not aggree with his dogs on planes video, but I aggree with this, except for the “i like dogs” part.
