Doggie stereotypesPosted Wednesday, April 7, 2010, at 12:01 PM
First, hello to the ladies at the Animal Care Center. They've said they miss my blogs.
Second, if I may take a minute or two, I have something I'd like to write about. I guess there's this scene in a movie called "Up" where the humans meet a doggie and the doggie is distracted by a squirrel.
I guess this scene is supposed to be really funny. But I disagree. It perpetuates a stereotype that dogs are easily ---
Hey, human! What's that you're eating? Can I have some? Pleasepleasepleaseplease?
A stereotype that dogs are easily distracted. Seriously, that's so not true. Dogs are the most intelligent of all ---
Human! Are you going outside? Outside? Outside? Can I go? Can I go? Canigocanigocanigo?
Dogs are the most intelligent of all animals. I mean, look at me, fox example. Do you know how hard it is to type with paws? As opposed to how hard it is to type with boxing gloves on? (See, I even made a link! That takes smarts!)
Anyway, this unfortunate stereotype against dogs ---
Hold on a second; that cartoon I linked to is pretty funny. And just how does Strong Bad type with boxing gloves on?
Unfortunate stereotype against dogs ---
What's that cat doing on my lawn?! If I wasn't in this house typing a blog, I'd give you what for! WOOF WOOF WOOF!!!!!
Against dogs needs to be stopped. We are not so easily distracted by anything that comes along ---
What's this on the lawn, now?
Oh, darn ...
Never mind. See you again soon.
Scott Nuzum's dog has an opinion, too.
