    My MIL does that, it's funny and even she laughs... Her dog (Female) is always he, and her cats (1 male/ 1 female) are always she... LOL

    Totally learned this in my German lessons.

    I have nothing to add. Carry on.

    Uhhh I told Webster "Good girl!" the other day. The "girl" just kind of slipped out...I was rotating dogs during training sessions and well girls have the majority here and are alliterative.

    He didn't care.

    Ah, okay. :D I just wanted to make sure I didn't sound like, "OMG, you know anybody who's awful like this?" Some responses made it sound like I was feeling sorry for the dogs.


    To clarify, I am talking about people who can't get their own dog's gender right. Other people's animals is different.

    This.

    I'm watching my Mom's 2 girls for her for awhile right now... But I'm so used to the boys.... I keep using him/he/his/ & "good boy." LOL. They don't seem to care though.

    Morgan is called "she" all the time, by everybody except us who live in the house with him. :p I don't know if it's because of the name, or because he's small/skinny, or what. Poor boy.

    Well, I know with my MIL it's because ALL of her pets are girls, so OF COURSE all our pets are girls, too. :rofl1:
