Walking or running with a dog, you might get to enjoy all sorts of commentary from good-meaning people that becomes tedious, repeated, and annoying.
Out of breath after a long run:
Who’s walking who?
Shouldn’t it be ‘whom’?
While running past:
What’s the big rush?
Running 3+ miles will do that, try it sometime:
Boy, somebody’s panting hard.
With the dog pulling at the leash, probably because of said commentator:
Is that leash strong enough?
I’m not a ‘dog person’, I’m a ‘my dog person’:
Oh, you’re a dog person?
Just sign this waiver:
Can I (or my kids) pet your dog?
You also sign this waiver:
Is it ok if our dogs meet?
Does it matter?
Is it a boy or a girl dog?
And what ethnicity are you?
What breed of dog is it?
Is it because you’re lazy?
I wish I could have you walk my dog.
Activity with my dog is because I care about her. Do you care about your dog?
