    and he's looking it, gray hair, etc.

    He's still doing good, though... walks everyday, still get the big greeting when I come home, etc.

    Anyway, what's so odd is that so often when we're out on our walks, other people (strangers) feel the need to comment about how old my dog looks. "Whoa... there's an old guy... he's pretty old, right? Damn he's old" and so on.

    1) Like I need to be told that. "Oh really, I didn't know that? I've only been raising him for the last 14 years, thank you so much for the new information".

    and

    2) It's fucking rude. "Whoa, hey... look at your wife's fat ass... that's big, right? She probably feels awkward at the pool?"

    I have to hold back from punching them in the face.

    The most pathetic part is that they (meaning you) have no idea what you're saying is even the slightest bit insulting or annoying.

    I bet a lot of those same people are waiters and waitresses that work at restaurants you frequent.

    Stop getting butthurt, if you have a really old dog people will say shit, they don't mean any hard, stop being Ms. Sensitive.

    My old dog doesn't give a shit what people say about him as long as they pet him so why should I care? Oh, that's right, I'm not a sensitive drama queen. :eek:

    "What's the big deal?", says fucktard, "I was just telling him how old his dog looks ... you know, just in case he didn't know or maybe he needed to reminded. Why are you sensitive? I'm just being helpful"

    That's really how your brain works, genius?

    I was proud of my dog when people said how old she looked and was glad she was still around.

    Cheer up, you'll have to put the dog down before you know it.

    If you want to be an asshole next time someone tells you your dog is old
    say : you think I should put him down..
    but be prepared for someone to say yes.

    That's exactly what I'm going to do. Seriously.

    "You know... you're right. I hadn't actually considered it before now, but you bring up a good point. I'm going to put him down this weekend, maybe even tomorrow. You are so right. Thank you"

    All with a straight face, complete lack of emotion that I'm kidding.

    Then I'm going to wake away.
