Poppycock

Every once in a while, you see something ridiculous and it has to be called out for what it is. Go through the slide show and be upset like we are. We all have a number 15 as a friend. We have a friend with a number 2 and when her previous number 2 crossed, she (who weights about 110 pounds or 50 kilograms), promptly got another number 2. Anyone who gets a dog should research the breed or (even better) have prior experience.

Here’s the article.

152UPDATE Rumor says that the author is planning a sequel, “The 15 best species of squirrel”.

  1. Ugh! I hate that the author perpetuates the same hurtful stereotypes… My boyfriend and I have a German Shepherd and she absolutely loves us and everyone she has ever met. I wouldn’t call her dangerous at all! She can play a little rough, but we’re working with her on it.

    • We have 2 GSs kitty corner to us. They’re not a problem and the owners love them. The author is a money-grubbing idiot. It’s the individuals-just like in humans, you have good and bad individuals in every breed.

  2. Stereotyping or Discrimination makes us SOOOOOOO sad and Angry…
    We wish it would just disappear. WHEN will Peeps EVER learn???? !!!!!!

  3. dog breeds to “avoid”… and it started with ME… great :o) seems they picked the breeds by rafflecopter…. I must laugh as I read about the Pekingese… Suzie the Pekingese was my mommas babysitter and they spend years together in my mommas sand box (because it was Suzie’s secret dunny).

  4. Clickbait article for sure. Just looking for some more web traffic by ruffling feathers.

  5. I so disagree too. I’m not much for small dogs, but there are some great dogs in this mix that’s I’ve had or been around in my lifetime. I so disagree with this.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    • This article was NOT funny. Every breed has its champions, peeps who love it and know it. Our little terriers have terrier quirks and the peeps know that and love them for it. A Russell Terrier isn’t a bad dog, just terrier distilled and concentrated.

  6. Totally ridiculous article – not at all funny and I’m sure it was just “put out there” to do what it did….ruffle feathers and fur.

  7. O.K. how does one get through the dogs because there is so much garbage ads and it loads so slow. Am I on the trash list again? Lets just say the person who wrote the thing is a dog hater and an idiot with a minus IQ.

    • It’s all about the money. They make a ridiculous point of view to draw you in for page views and they get paid for it. It’s sort of presented as news. Just like the news you see on TV-it’s all about views and advertisements. Unfortunately, it might sway some people who are dumber than a squirrel.

  8. It’s kind of like racism for dogs.

  9. sheesh! way to pigeon hole breeds, based on bad stereotypes. Mum was very surprised that pitties did not top the list. we agreed with some of the messages that a specific dog might not be for everyone, but that is true of any breed – and anyone looking for a dog should do the research on what kind of training, exercise, grooming, etc. they need.

  10. It’s amazing how people don’t research a dog breed before they get a puppy. Then it’s the dog who suffers.

  11. This must have been written by a very brilliant Peep…you can tell by the lack of common sense…..and that just don’t like puppers….we all take lots of work for petes sake….somebody stick a fork in that nut!

  12. What a dumb article. People should know what kinda dog they’re gettin and get one that fits their lifestyle. Do your research and don’t rely on dumb things like this.

    • Whitley, you finally got through the spam filter!!!!!! She loves her Doberman. The problem she has with them are with the breeders. Since December, when her Dobie had a heart attack and crossed (not yet six years old), she found out that the mother died of the same thing at seven and her dog’s littermate just did the same thing.The breeder was a problem-the Dobermans (and those who love them) are victims.

  13. I don’t agree at all. Everything depends on the owner of the dog,not the breed.

  14. Yep Sadie is a real beast and so is our new dobie Jette. My son had a St Bernard and my other son had a husky. Both were great with their kids. Poppycock for sure.

  15. They are no bad dogs……educate yourself when choosing the right pup for your family. And whatever breed you bring into your family be a responsible parent. All puppies are precious just like babies, its how you raise them.

    Aroo to you,
    Sully

  16. I’m totally surprised that Airedales didn’t make that list! BOL!!!!! I mean, we are hyperasses….okays, maybe that’s just ME…. butts still, I thinks the author of that article just wanted to piss some peeps and puppers off….CONGRATS! You did!
    Nows, are you serving Poppycock??? Ya know ~ the tasty poppycorn treat??
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

  17. You’re just PO’d because Airedales were left out and Russell included.

  18. You breed them, and then you say avoid them. Humans~ squirrels are one and same to me.

  19. Clickbait. Yep. That’s my vote. CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrrrr.

  20. I’m just speechless. There really are no words appropriate enough for a response. Good grief!

  21. Kismet you totally cracked me up on my Disapproving Bun Day post…Mooned…hehehe,xx Speedy
