I use Grindr - an iPhone App where you can track other men who are close to your physical location and maybe chat them up. I rarely start the conversation - not because I'm a snob - it really is because I'm shy. I might look fabulous now - but I was not very pretty when I was growing up. So I continue to be shy.
Anyways - this post is not about me. It's about my two babies. I've posted numerous pictures in Grindr as my profile picture - and so far - men seem to like the pictures I have included in this blog post. One in which I am with Char Siew and the other with Midori. I'm thinking, I must really look really good in these pictures - or these pictures make me look really friendly. Whatever the reason might be, tt works for me - because I like starting good conversations by talking about my dog.
So you might think all is well with these pictures --- well not quite. Since I have dogs in my picture - I've found that there are men in Grindr who send me a message - not to hook up with me but to ask if I would like to have my beautiful dogs hook up with their dogs. I tell them that I've actually spayed and neutered Midori and Char Siew. I also try to tell them my reasons for doing that --- since it is not a common practice in the Philippines. My main reason for it is to give as much chance as I can give to Midori and Char Siew to live longer and healthier lives. Some of them get it --- and some of them don't.
Recently - a boy - with a Chihuahua in his profile picture asked me if I would be interested in having puppies with his dog. I told him I can't since my dogs no longer have the family jewels. I also pointed out to him that his dog is a Chihuahua and asked if he knew that Chihuahuas always deliver via a Caesarian operation. He said - he knew about it and that is why he got a male Chihuahua. Oh My DOG. I was floored by that response - and blocked his profile immediately. Horrible - don't you think?
