SO WHERE WAS I? Oh yeah, doggies. Sloan and I want to get one, but have discovered that we slightly different doggie tastes. And, of course, they play out according to our societal gender roles.
I like chow-chows (but really, who doesn't? the only people who DON'T LIKE CHOWS are the prince of darkness and Rush Limbaugh):
Sloan likes pit bulls:
[I like] poodles:
[He likes] boxers:
I LIKE CUTE:
HE LIKES NO SO CUTE:
See the issue? It's okay, though, I'm easier to please than he is. Pit bulls/other muscley death dogs are actually pretty lovey, which Sloan has demonstrated with the dogs at the pound. I'm figuring out that when it comes to dogs, "strange/freakish" is what makes them even cuter to me. How else do I explain why I think mastiffs and corgis are simultaneously adorable?
