    At work the other day someone came up to me and said:

    "Hey, you know about dogs- I want to get one but I want a breed that doesn't need to be walked and is quite happy by themselves, what should I get?"

    I replied:

    "Try a nintendog. There's no such thing as a dog that 'doesn't need to be walked' and if that's your attitude then do us all a favour, and get a cat"

    What are people thinking? I expect most of you have come across individuals like this!

    Hey...Nintendogs need love too ya know! I know...my daughter and I have 7 between us :)

    Suggest that your workmate get a dog cuddly toy and leave it sitting in a wee basket somewhere.

    if they have that attitude then they probably don't want to deal with playtime/training to avoid furniture getting scratched... maybe a stuffed toy is the only option

    People seem to think because mine are smaller dogs then they don't need as much walking as say a lab. But no they need to same amount :rolleyes:

    Hmm... Are there any welfare organisations that look after Nintendogs? :)

    It would appear that there are lesser humans who just aren't suitable for owning dogs!

    Perhaps we should pity them.

    Or we would if they didn't just go out and get a dog anyway, find they can't cope with picking up poo, and try to sell them after 6 months for £999 saying 'genuine reason for sale!'
