DOG KISSES WOMAN ON ACTIVERAIN COMMENTER REFUSES TO VISIT HER BLOG

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with People first then business! Ran Right Realty BRE Agent 636943

I am enjoying ActiveRain. I came across an old comment someone made over 2 years ago on one of my posts that got me laughing. A mature Real Estate agent made a comment as follows and I quote "Way back I hated a picture of an agent who was kissing her dog....smack....right on the lips. I refused to go to her blog anymore. Don't know if she's still on". unquote

MM-MM...WHAT SHOULD I POST ABOUT?

Now I am not sure in what direction to take this post. For instance, shall I raise the issue of a human kissing a dog (on the lips no less)? Has some sort of rating code been violated here on ActiveRain? Rated PK (pet kissing)  Some scenes may be offensive to pets especially dogs?

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION?

Or, should I post about the diversity found here in the Rain where people get to express themselves freely? I mean this person calmly stated that this was a post killer for her as a person and agent. I am glad that the freedom to express ones self is alive and well here in the rain..

CRUELTY TO ANIMALS?

How about I raise the issue of pet cruelty? How many pets do we know that are forced dress up in ribbons, bonnets, sweaters, cute socks and shoes, fancy collars and now they have to personally thank their owners with a kiss? If you know of any dog that is experiencing a DOGS LIFE, call 1-800-hold that kiss

ACTIVERAIN LIVE REPORTING

ActiveRain continues to report live from the front lines of Real Estate true to life experiences. What we do with them is another matter...I personally want to thank that person for the chuckle as her comment was said in earnest and to assure everyone that what happens in the rain...stays in the rain

Hmm, Richie, I think you might have something there...I think our dogs might have taken offense with the picture - I mean, "human cooties", yuck!

My, my Richie some people do love their animals more than human I think...but to refuse to trespass on someones blog because of it...like you said it is great diversity here & we learn toleration just in case it hasn't been learned yet!

Ginny... It makes me think of the kiss that the preacher says right after they are married "you may now kiss the bride" and some kissers forget there is an audience present..If one wishes to kiss their dog in public as part of their branding, perhaps a public relations manager should be consulted...it couldn't hurt?

I think kissing a dog is OK among consenting adults and dogs.  As long as one doesn't decide to bite the other.  How silly!

Richie, I do love Willie the Labradoodle, but I draw the line at dog kisses on the lips.  And if I didn't I don't think I would use a photo to memorialize the act if I did.

David...this had me grinning on and off .....

Jeanne & Ralph...if the issue gets dicey, you would make a good character witness...no biting    lol

 

Patricia...I like Willie a lot too especially since you two are close, but it is purely platonic. Please let Willie know. As to the photo, I bet that dog gets a Valentine every year too

Hello sweet Patricia...Lets be clear too...In Beauty and the Beast....it was a strange kiss that led us into the moral, end, and point of the story...So kissing animals can go somewhere as Walt Disney aptly demonstrated...

I have to admit I do enjoy photos with dogs dressed up in silly costumes, but I wouldn't want to see anyone make them wear these around all day.  Just long enough for the photo op is good.

Doug....I remember seeing them (dogs dressed up) on the Ed Sullivan show...I do believe all of the original cast of them are retired however...Doug, the experienced dogs have agents too

A picture of you kissing your dog as your profile photo is a bit much for me, but to each their own if they like that picture.

Morgan...People love their pets....this we know and they are good marketing boosters and friend makers...but as a social couple, I don't know....Truly your comment of "to each their own" applies here
