    So I decided earlier I would get off my lazy butt and take Maggie to Petco for some "fun time". Of course I braved the snow storm for "fun time" which wasent even fun. Anyways so we get there and we're walking around and and low and behold I see anouther Cocker owner. She had a buff male who was so handsome and reminded me alot of Tucker in personality. So we both of course gravitate towards each other.

    Maggie being a bit "eh" about strange dogs did her normal "im not so sure about you circles" but go over it. So we were talking and she goes "No offense but your Cocker doesent have the cutest face like most" :yikes:. I could have slapped the woman!!! So I just said I thought my girl was not only adorable but beautiful. And she just kind of snorted all superior like :yikes:. So instead of causing a big scene I walked away with my "ugly dog".

    I swear if I had a nickel for everytime someone called Maggie ugly or badly bred I would...have a whole lot of nickels. People just irk me.

    Yep rude
    My reply to her could have been.......Oh my yourself esteem has to be so low for you to make a comment about a dog just to make yourself feel better.
    You really can have fun with these types of people, I usually consider my self successful when they are running away.
    People that rude often need a good dose.
    I agree, she's a lovely dog.
     
  7. OMG I would have had to say NEITHER DO YOU.

    How rude.

    I'm so sorry she was so rude. Your Maggie is so adorable that I think she was jealous. Seriously, you baby is extremely cute. Don't listen to her!

    Why do people use their dogs as their egos these days? I don't get it! Who would even think to say something so rude and why was it even necessary?:confused:

    Thanks everyone. I was blow away as you all were when she initially said it. But she was also one of those high class Cocker breeders. Bred to fit the standards and all. Maggie is far from standard and guess that equaled ugly to her. Why she needed to voice her opinion I have no idea.

    I'm sorry, Pixie! How incredibly insensitive and rude!
    I think Maggie is absolutely adorable.

    Obviously her cocker is better bred than SHE is!

    Next time, just look at them confused and say nicely, "well, gee, that was rude of you" and just calmly walk away.

    By the way, your dog is very cute--maybe her nose was too far in the air to really see Maggie :)
