‘I Hate Dogs’

Farhad Manjoo on the maddening issue of dogs being fucking everywhere in the U.S.:

But here’s my problem: There’s now a cultural assumption that everyone must love dogs. Dog owners are rarely forced to reckon with the idea that there are people who aren’t enthralled by their furry friends, and that taking their dogs everywhere might not be completely pleasant for these folks.

I find people who brings dogs everywhere with them — including into the office — to be rude. I can’t stand having dogs everywhere. You know where dogs belong? In your fenced yard at home. Not your purse. Not my office. Not my building. Not on your fucking lap as you down your tenth Venti-Non-Fat-Extra-Whip-Frapp.
