You might want to date someone that loves their dog more than life, but there are extremes at both ends of the dog-owning scale. What to look for, and run from, in a potential pet-loving mate:
Signs your date is a pet slob:
Crusty, dried dog food in the dish- even the ants shun that.
Sheets draped on every single piece of furniture, even the coffee table.
You start to sit down and your date says, “Not there, it’s still drying.”
The dog bed is so worn, only the dirt and hair hold it together.
Signs your date is a neat freak:
His squeaky-clean dog spends life behind a gate in the laundry room.
He asks if you want to wash your hands two seconds after petting the dog.
All-white furniture and rugs are so spotless, you need shades to look at them. The dog is white, too.
Any glass door in the house has ZERO nose prints on it. Not really possible unless the pets are shut away, a lot.
Four common types of pet parents that would throw you over for the pet every time:
The Helicopter: Has to dash home from dinners out to feed Lulu even though it’s only 7PM
Hostage Negotiator: Tells you to ‘be careful’ hopping into bed since Fang usually sleeps in that spot. (Meanwhile Fang is making a mean face at you)
The Velcro Mom: Insists on toting her teacup dog everywhere, including restaurants.
Serial Petsitter: Always has a rotating band of three dogs and several cats. Forget about going out of town, or a long movie.
