Small Dog Owners Are Always Fat

Really? Would those people say Marilyn Monroe is fat? I found this pic this morning on Facebook. It's a picture of a very fat Marilyn Monroe with her pet chihuahua.

Yes, she owned a chihuahua. And no, she doesn't look fat to me. In fact, most people would agree she was one of the most beautiful women that ever lived. Yet, she owned a chihuahua. So do a lot of other rather nice-looking people. Admittedly most of them are women. Very few men own chihuahuas on their own. Those that do are usually married to someone who loves chihuahuas. So I think this kinda kills the theory that only fat people own small dogs.

But now, let's look at the other side of the picture, I can put my fingers on a dozen fat people, that I know personally, who own labradors, or golden retrievers, and even great danes. The weight of a person does not determine the size of the dog. I think the weight is more like a side-effect of our nation's current conditions of what's going into our food. Not the size of the dog they own. I will say I've seen more fat (and ugly) cat-owners than small dog owners. Of course I am fat and ugly too, and I don't have a cat. I do have 2 tiny dogs. But I am just one person. Every time I see someone say that everyone who owns small dogs is fat, lazy and ignorant, I shake my head. Because it is so not true! Then they go on to say that everyone who owns big dogs is fit, healthy and more intelligent. Again, I shake my head. The people who say that stuff is usually crazy, and not in a cute way.

I don't know, any kind of stereotyping makes any person look bad. Though I say I've seen more people who were fat and ugly owning cats, I don't make that the basis of how I see cat owners. I try to look at each person as an individual. I've known some very intelligent cat owners. Since cats do tend to make people crazy, I would also venture to say it's cat owners that are the most creative (Dougal Dixon is a cat owner, and he is the father of speculative biology). Same with small dogs. Judging a person by the size of dog they own to me is just simple ridiculousness! And it's an excuse morons use to judge another person that apparently no one else will defend, just so they can be judging that other person. Judgmental people just have WAY too much time on their hands. It's silly!

I remember back in Bozeman, Karen said Helga, when she was younger, looked almost identical to Marilyn Monroe. I dunno. I would have been able to tell the difference. Marilyn Monroe loved animals. Helga hates animals. There is no similarity there at all. Helga was just nuts. I don't like her. When I was a kid, and up into my teenage years, I hated people that didn't like animals. Now, it really makes no difference. As long as they are not abusive towards animals, they can love or hate them, I don't care. I even have friends now that are not animal lovers in any way, shape or form.
