A Boy and his Dog

i was talking with a woman recently and i guess she heard Brody licking me and she laughed. i asked her what she was laughing at and she mentioned me and my baby-talking Brody. i asked her what she thought was funny and she mentioned, “i dunno, just a boy and his dog……it’s cute.”

my question is: what’s the appeal Ladies? is there an attraction to a man that has a dog, and if so…….WHY?



Brody resting his head in my lap. this is what he does.

  1. Danny,
    Not any old Tom, Dick or Harry with a dog.
    Depends on the man and/or the dog.
    One or both have to be ‘special’ in some way…

    I mean a tattooed, long haired, metal-toothed, knife-carrying goth with a Rottweiler would not give me the same comfort/safety vibe as you and Brody, to give a stark example…

    Maybe that’s just me…and maybe because Brody is a Brit πŸ™‚

    Name of a very funny, post-apocalypse movie: Boy has dog, Boy meets girl, girl hungry, girl wants to eat dog……….

    It shows they can take care of something, IMHO. I don’t quite get it myself, since a lot of people own dogs and people as pet owners are pretty varied, but if they’re good pet owners then I assume that they might also be good people.

    Its an instant awwww factor! Not only can you take care of yourself but you can take care of a puppy! Extra points if puppy is well behaved lol

  5. Anytime you see a man giving his love, it’s attractive. A man who is good to his dog has chosen to commit to another soul and care for his needs. He’s chosen this when he could have chosen to not be relied on. He could have chosen not to deal with the dog hair, land mines in the yard to clean up, daily feedings, walks and needed attention.

    I once dated a man who had a hunting dog. Beautiful dog, but the guy seemed to care for the dog’s physical needs but not emotional. It told me a little something when I realized he only let this big furry ball of love in the house for like 10 minutes a day. 😦

  7. Danny,

    Looks like I’ve got competition for Brody’s affections…
    Who is this ‘Brodylover’?
    Does Brody have a ‘soft harem’?

    The apple does not fall far from the tree as they say.

    You know, I just realized I’ve only dated guys who like cats, and I’m definitely a dog person. Sorta funny. My boyfriend wants a golden retriever someday… we’ll see, I don’t like the big scary dogs that jump up and try to lick your face. My dog was kind of small and always so mellow, even when we first got him, (we just put him down the other week. He was 15, had him since I was 9).
