My Best Friend is a Pit Bull and I’m a Chihuahua. What Breed Would You Be?
Growing up as a kid we were often asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. I always wanted to be a football player or a princess. I wanted to be pretty and tough. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that.
Now that I am an adult I am neither a football player nor a princess and I am quite disappointed in myself. I have no idea where I went wrong. Why am I not sitting in a castle right now?
Anyway, now that I am adult no one ever asks me what I want to be when I grow up. They fail to realize that I haven’t grown up yet and I am still deciding.
Now they just ask me silly questions.
Take my best friend for instance….
The other day she and I went to lunch. As we were sitting there talking about foreign policies and gas prices she suddenly stopped and asked me if I could be any type of dog what would I be?
First of all, I was quite surprised and taken aback by her question. I mean I had no idea where it came from, one minute we were talking about the crazy price of gas and the next minute she was asking me what kind of dog I would to be. Of course, like any best friend would do after being asked a question like that, I asked her what type of medication she was on, which she rudely ignored and went right into talking about the dog breed she would be.
She would be a pit bull
Pit Bulls are strong and beautiful and misunderstood.
I give her an A+ for making me teary eyed here, but I would of pegged her for a toy poodle.
So after she let me in on her choice, then it was my turn to tell her what breed I would be, and to be quite honest I felt a little pressured. I mean her answer was good and she obviously had been thinking about this for awhile. I had no time to think because she was staring at me waiting for me to trump her. She knows that I crumble under pressure so the situation she put me in really wasn’t fair.
There’s more than 150 AKC dog breeds out there and I had no time to go through each one of them in my head so I quickly shouted out Chihuahua.
I would be a Chihuahua.
It’s not bad enough that I had to pick what breed of dog I would be under such hostile circumstances but now I have to explain my choice.
Alright, here goes nothing:
What you see is not what you get with a Chihuahua. You have a small, almost miniature dog that just about fits in the palm of your hand. Chihuahua’s are adorable but………..you can never underestimate them. They have the guts to stand up to anything that is in their way, even if that something outweighs them by 100 pounds. They may be small but they mean business and they put their little hearts into everything that they do and they can yap forever.
Oh, and the fact that they can be carried around in a shoulder bag, helps….a lot.
So tell me, what type of dog breed would you be?Don’t forget to explain why!
