They are loud. BARK!! BARK!! BARK!! Even reading those three words is annoying!
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!!
They smell. They need to be washed like a car otherwise they infect uphostry (couches, carpets, curtains) with their stench.
They get angry. And frankly I’m scared of most of them.
They dribble. And their slime gets onto your clothes. eeeuch!
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.
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!)
They wreck stuff. Chewing, knawing, eating, scratching
They render owners backyards unusable. Don’t you dare walk back there with bare feet!
One killed my cat! (June 08) The cutest fricken cat in the world too 🙁
