Dog People:

Are a special breed not usually recognized by the AKC.
Thinks everyone has crates in their living room.
Have messy houses---their kennels are spotless.
Can always find a show catalog within arm's reach.
Have kids who know more about the "birds & bees" when they are 5, than most know when they are 40.
Drive trucks, vans & motorhomes equipped to haul dog crates.
Can never be reached on a weekend: they are at a dog show.
Will drive 400 miles, spend $100 on gas, $200 on a motel room, & $150
on meals to bring home a 25 cent ribbon.
Have kids who regard to the word BITCH as just another household word.
Have lush green backyards---& they never bought fertilizer.
Get up at 6:00am to walk the dogs, can be at ringside dressed to kill
by 8:00am, but have trouble getting to work on time.
Will usually give up the $150,000 home in the suburbs to move to a
shack on 10 acres so they can have a $150,000 kennel.
Never miss a closing date for entry fees---but pay the mortgage 10
days late.
Would rather be audited by the IRS than be investigated by the AKC.
Use dog food bags for trash & 30 gallon trash cans for dog food.
Talk for hours on the phone to another dog person in a language known
only to dog people
Have parents who think they lost their minds.
Have neighbors who think they are strange.
Have doggy friends who think they are TERRIFIC!
