Welcome to Linda's Date List Blog!
Hello Readers, Linda here. Today I want to talk about Dog Lovers and Online Dating. My daughter is single and has a beautiful female Pitt Bull named Molly. She has had Molly since Molly was about 5 weeks old. Molly is 5 now and she is just like a child to my daughter. I myself am not that big of a animal person although I do love Molly! She grew on me after all these years.
My daughter like many Dog Lovers treats her Dog like you would a child. Molly has been there for my daughter all these years and is very protective of my daughter. It's like having a body guard for my daughter which eases my mind as a parent.
My daughter is currently single and dating. She has to definitely meet a guy that loves Molly as much as she does (if that's even possible) because they come as a package deal! I believe that if you have a Dog that you should definitely put that on your Online Dating profile. There are even dating sites specifically for Dog Lovers.
Many of my single friends have dogs. I guess a Dog is a great companion for single people and if you are dating, the person needs to know that you have a Dog and that its a package deal, much like having a child. One time I was walking with my daughter and Molly downtown doing some shopping and my daughter went into a store so I was standing outside waiting with Molly. Well, a man comes up to me and Molly (I suppose because of her being a pitt Bull) and says to me " why would you have a Dog like that? I say to him " if you had a daughter that looks like mine and lives alone, you would want a Dog as wonderful as this!". He just shook his head and walked away. He must not be a parent is what I was thinking. Do I think Pitt Bulls are dangerous? No. They are by far the sweetest breed of Dog that I have ever comes across however; if a transient or a dangerous person tried to come up to my daughter I know Molly would kill that person so I pity the poor fool who would try. Would I go up and pet a Pitt a Bull randomly on the street? No. You have to have common sense when it comes to Dog breeds. I absolutely believe that Dog owners must act responsibly with their Dogs and are definitely liable for them.
This is just another thing in the list of many that I write about that you absolutely should have in common with a potential mate. I love Molly for watching over my daughter and I believe that Pitt Bulls can be dangerous if in the wrong owners hand yet they are the sweetest most lovable Dogs ever!
