Annoyed! A stranger called Polly fat!
Just wanted to vent...Some total stranger called my Polly fat!! My husband David brought her to the hardware store with him and some guy was like "Is that a King Charles? Wow she's really chunky!" and David was like "Not really.." and the guy goes "Well she's really...well fed" How RUDE is that?! And the craziest thing of all is she's tiny and quite lean! She's only like 11lbs and very petite. SO ANNOYED! He's lucky I wasn't there...:swear:
People often do not have a clue...
People often get very confused about dog breeds, especially Cavaliers it seems. I have told a neighbor three times that Cavaliers are NOT the same as the Toy King Charles. She always comments on Gracie's extra long muzzle! And Cavaliers range in size quite a bit...so if someone is familiar with a tiny one or a larger one...they seem to thing that is what all should look like. I seem to spend alot of time educating folks about the breed....that they are not so cookie cutter.
Gracie just now reached 14 pounds....and she too has been called "big" for her breed. Polly is a cutie so we'll just let these folks keep their silly opinions.
