Default Do people ever tell you...

Do people ever tell you one of your dogs is prettier than the other? What do you say to that?

The other day this person was going on and on about how much prettier Mia was than Summer. When we had the shelties, people would often comment that Trey was much prettier than Nikki. It's just kind of strange, isn't it?

Poor Summer is just an ugly dog, I guess.

It seems like almost know one thinks poor Maggie is pretty compared to the boys. Maybe its because of her size? Or that most people don't like Cocker Spaniels. But im always told how much prettier (more handsome I guess would be the better term) Sawyer and Morrison are compared to her.

When it comes to the boys........Most people say the are equally cute lol.

I personally think Maggie is beautiful. She is a puppy mill rescue so she isn't going to be AKC standard perfect. But still beautiful in my eyes.

People always talk about how regal Argon is, and what a beautiful dog, but the words "pretty" and "cute" almost never pass their lips. They think he's beautiful like a statue of a dog, and I have to agree.
Grimm on the other hand, is constantly being fussed over. Peole think he's adorable, and want to stroke his neck wattles and pat him and play with his curly tail. But they never use the word "regal", just cute.
Grimm has the round face and big eyes of the pug, which I think people are attracted to because he looks like a stuffed toy. Argon just looks like he thinks he's better then them, which is true . The boy has a heck of an ego.

No but I ALWAYS get people stopping to pet Bandit because of how beautiful he is. I think he is a nice looking dog, but nothing so special as to stop people in their day over and over again and they insist on asking where I got him, how much I paid etc. He's got a great personality to go along with his looks too so it gets a bit annoying when you take him out down town and people actually have the balls to offer you money for him. He's not for sale!

I do know Bandit's breeder but I doubt they'd want a bunch of randoms harassing them for the beautiful dogs they breed. So ha. I refrain from informing them anything more than he came from a crappy home and they too could find a dog and give it a second chance at their local shelter.

I dunno, maybe I am just used to his looks. I do think he's a handsome boy, but there are lots of beauties of his general type all over the place without a home. Black, hairy dog. Common people. That few hundred bucks could go to helping a needy dog, not one with an already cushy life.

Who am I kidding? My dog is beautiful?

The poodles are always fussed over, mostly because they are "bright" colors, and small and fluffy, and love people (at least Tsuki does).

The schnauzers are black, loud, and noisy... so they are often overlooked LOL

I think Luce would beg to differ.

I am trying to be objective and I think Summer is prettier than Mia. The girl did say Summer had a 'really great personality' lol.

Izzie's always prettier, cuter, more regal, and generally thought of as better than the other two.

Meh, it happens! (and personally i agree with the consensus).

Chai is handsome, people ALWAYS think she's a boy.

Ruby is... Ruby... Bless her old lady heart.

Well, how rude! It's like telling a doting mother that one of her kids is homelier than the other; courteous people might THINK it but would never SAY it!

And anyway, they're wrong about Summer.

Oh, and Luce doesn't care if Steve is prettier. Pfff. LUCE is beautiful and regal and IMPORTANT. So much better than merely pretty.
