Default If you like dogs you must support PETA

This is just an observation I've noticed...

A lot of people (aside from chazzers and some other dog crazy people I know) tend to think that because I spend so much of my time with dogs, training, etc and because I'm a huge dog lover I must be for PETA also. When I tell them I despise PETA they are completely surprised.

Has anyone else observed/experienced similar?

I figure they just don't truly know what PETA is all about and figure animal loving=PETA supporting.

I had this conversation with someone in my family who had asked me if I wanted something for Christmas where the funds go to support PETA. They meant well and thought the idea would be a way to support my dog interests, but we a bit taken back when I said I in no way support PETA.

Same. My family thinks I am into all animal organizations. I'm also fairly liberal so they think I love PETA. My uncle hunts and I believe that's where it got started. I don't hunt. I don't like dead animals or killing them or anything like that. So people take that to mean I am against hunting. It's kind if a "If you're not for it, you're against it" situation.

Most people just don't know what PETA is. I think they do a fair job of hiding their crazy and unless you actually look into it, you just assume they're good for animals. I got odd looks at Thanksgiving because I said they were a bunch of nutjobs.

Taq's hit it right on.

Oh yeah, constantly. Or HSUS, if I tell people that I despise HSUS they think I'm joking.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

People also tend to think I support PETA or maybe they're joking when they say that, but it gets on my nerves sometimes. Just cause I love animals doesn't mean I'm against hunting or for PETA or any of that.

I get that a lot. People often assume I'm vegan, too, though, which is weird.

I hear that a lot. People assume I'm a supporter PETA and a vegetarian.

Yeah I get that a lot too, and odd looks when I bash them.

I don't actually know any animal person that is for PETA.

The only PETA supporters I know are pretentious teenage vegans.

Try being a vegetarian & a dog lover! People are shocked that I hate PETA. Except for people who actually are crazy PETA supporters, and think that pets are slaves and no one should own them.
