Dogs and Mountaingirl

I love dogs. I don't have one because it wouldn't be responsible as I am away for 10 hours a day at work. Please don't think the following comments are meant against dogs - it is their owers I have a problem with.

Why is whenever I meet a dog owner (with the exceptions of Miss A and Miss Weasley) do they think I want to get licked by their dog. Why do they assume I want to have big cuddles with their dog. I don't. I don't want slobber, I don't want pet hair over my clothes.

I think dogs are like people - you get to know them progressively. Why not start with a pat on the head and a sniff of my hand. I mean you don't meet your neighbors new husband with a big sloppy kiss so why would I want one from a dog that I don't know?

Am I the only one who thinks it is rude?

Oh no, you are RIGHT ON!!
It drives me bonkers being overly loved on, even by dogs of friends I'm close to. We do our best to keep our dogs in check when we have them out of the house (obviously not too many people come into our house). I don't mind my own dogs' pet hair, but I hate getting covered by others' dogs.
