Ahhh you prefer the possessive types,lol!She's owning you,Rook!My little Raisin {also a chi}tries that with me.Particularly against SadieJane,my foster dog.Lotsa jelousy there on both parts.
I never had problems dating because of my animals...it's simple...if he doesn't like them or they don't him...there's the road,get on it!Fortunately I have a man who loves them almost as much as I do...All 12 of our canids...from the tiniest chihuahua to the biggest artic tundra wolf.

If a man doesn't like me because of my pets well he can hit the highway . They are my family and he may as well leave and don't let the door hit him in the arse.

I wouldn't date a guy who doesn't like pets. He doesn't need to have any but he needs to like them. I think it says a lot about someone who doesn't like pets. It does help with the dating process for people who like pets.

Only problem is when my Border collie is first introduced to someone new...he lets them know...Hey I'm just tolerating you until mama says its ok. He will growl & show his teeth. I warn people, do NOT try to pet him...let him come to you. After he knows someone he is great with them & takes them a toy.

When spending the nite with someone...I take him with me, he's an indoor dog & has perfect house manners, no jumping up on people, no getting on the furniture, not destructive etc...I take couple of his toys with us and he's fine

Yes, somewhat....I own 2 Pitbulls, and rather than giving them a chace to see how they act.....fear kicks in and they are too afraid to even enter my house. But hey Life goes On..

If a guy is going to be afraid of my pitbull (who's a big baby and extemely friendly), then he's not the guy for me! I love pits and any kind of animals and if you're not an animal lover, then we aren't a match.

Aww! I've always wanted a Greater Swiss or a Bernese mountain dog.

It's the same with me. I have to be home daily in order to take care of them. They tie me down but they are worth it.

Its only problem when date wakes up with cat in his mouth. Nothing weirding than garbled cry to wake you from sleep to find your cat trying to suffocate your date.

We have a dog parkk in the area and its a good place to meet others and their pets. I love dogs but have a fear of animals and did not do home care nursing because of it.

I could not date anyone with that many large dogs any more than with three small children at home Ready to play and enjoy retirement at this stage of life

Yep this has been an issue and one I just tonight had the old argument that I'm sure a lot of you have had before. Met a guy here on DH who has been begging me for a year to go out with him so out of obligation(had a feeling it was going to be a date from hell) I agreed to go on a date with him. In addition to my fur kids I also live with my mother who I care for and work as a caregiver for disabled and elderly people with varying hours so weekends are my only time for some spare time. Anyway the date went ok but we all know you can't always go by a first date. He asked me call him after work and asked to see me again this coming weekend. He said that 2-3 hours was not ample time to spend with me and that he didn't think it right or fair that I would need to come home and tend to my animals instead of being with him. I explained that to ask me to abandon my dogs like that would be like asking a single mom to just abandon her children in order to go on a date. He got mad and told me that since I would not put him first and treat my dogs as mere possessions that he did not want to talk to me or see me again. I said that's perfectly fine because I refuse to date a man that ask me to choose him over my dogs. He even went as far as to say that with that kind of attitude that I will be single and never get a good man when I put my dogs ahead of dating. Am I wrong to feel like punching him?

Any pet ... should come 2nd to a human being. You may not agree ... but that is your prerogative.

I have 2 cats and a dog. If a man doesn't like cats/dogs there's no point in asking me out.

Then you haven't found the right woman to fit in your lives. Probably feelings you have, are feelings she doesn't in other ways also. I say KUDOOS to you raising a handicapped animal, takes special love and patiance

My Catahoulas were worse and I had to keep them behind a door the mom and daughter they were well the younger was a kujo not a maybe I had signs on my property and idiots ignored them illiterate sobs-I am not afraid of your pits they are pups compared to what I had to deal with now I have a border burner and a healer aussie cattle blend 130 and 60 lbs my CAYTS were real ARF French buceron bull mastiff and indian red wolf they do not exist anymore they were bred in Amarillo TX and just because they were founded in La, and I came from FL after being born in NY where I am right now-you have to make adjustments-they protect kids-and the owner girl dogs are moreso then males why I have 2 males now-My others I used to breed were avg 100 lbs NALC came on in 76 ARF was around in 51 Stoghills signature was on my dogs papers and they ate 3 pits along with several boars and a few people.........lol The ones I have now are one is a rug the other is a bit hyped but bith easy going with outsiders. Bigger issue is my HORSE had to leave him in IN brought him from FL to there got stuck got issues and now in NY and he got hurt and my farrier is babysitting him, maybe forever, but I will ride again, if not here somewhere else I am a professional and a judge and OI can't see me stopping now-need some ground like I had in FL I had it all-My big dog is 130 lbs he looks like a big border he was 40 when I got him and the other was 58 and short and stout well now my DOZER Cowboy is bigger and the other one skirts around him they get into brotherly squabbles every now and then but never draw blood if they were catahoulas it would be sewing them up all the time! my Burner side of the big dog is dradft like the swiss but he is a burnese Mt dog but he is a border collie first- They are all my kids and better behaved usually then the kids

Nope. Don't like my dogs don't want me. They have been with me thru the highs and lows and if I don't make it with the guy my dogs will still be with me.

I have two cats and a small dog. my problem is I cant find a family member to watch them while I go on a date. my dog throws a fit every time I leave her and my family does not like her because of it, but if I take her she gets sick in my car.

A person who doesn't like pets can't be trusted.
