No party invites; it’s the pooch’s fault
No sex; once again, the dog’s to blame
One in twenty dog owners in the U.K. are absolutely convinced that their loyal and trusted pooch pushes their partner and their friends away.
One third of all 2,000 dog owners who took part in the survey are certain that their dog’s bad habits is a turn off to family and friends who therefore avoid contact as much as possible.
50 percent said they are never invited anywhere because people fear they will bring their dog along.
And 110 of the 2000 interviewed admitted to putting their dog on the side because they couldn’t handle the pet’s smell anymore.
“A stinking dog is nothing to sneeze at,” said one dog owner who doesn’t want to be identified.
“Smelly breathe, smelly ears or a wet smelly coat,” are real turn offs,” the dog owner said.
When asked why he wouldn’t wash or groom his pet to avoid these nuisances, the man simply shrugged his shoulders.
