Dog People Problems

You’re probably familiar with the meme.

It comes in two formats:  “_______ People Problems” or “_______ Problems”.

For example:

Don’t like how your new Mercedes rides?  First world problems.

Mistakenly went to the wrong Toyota Rav 4 in the superstore parking lot?  Middle class problems.

Can’t get into House of Lies because every time Don Cheadle breaks through the fourth wall you have Saved by the Bell flashbacks?  Twenty-something problems, Preppy.

Hipster problems.

Drug store out of SPF 70?  Ginger problems.

90 minute daily commute – one way?  Calgarian problems.

FIrst world problems.

Legend has it, the meme evolved from lyrics to a Matthew Good Band song.

So as I was complaining to the Husband that our sedan is no longer big enough to accommodate long family road trips after adopting Alma, it hit me: dog people problems.

Moses snoozing in the back seat of the car - back when he didn't have to share.

And there are a lot of dog people problems.

Brought only two poop bags on a walk where you needed three?  Dog people problems.

Don’t have a leash and collar set that match?  Dog people problems.

Tripe-based food is a heinous assault on the senses?  Dog people problems.

Lunchtime patio is not fido-friendly?  You guessed it: dog people problems.

Complain about the weather for Monday Mischief and get exactly what you ask for in less than 24 hours? Dog people problems. (Or Calgarian problems.)

Turns out that park isn’t off-leash after all?  The free treats offered by the bank teller aren’t grain-free?  Your local politician won’t answer your letters about the injustices of Breed Specific Legislation (BSL)?  Filled up your memory card with pictures of your pets?

Dog. People. Problems.

So let’s hear ’em – what are your dog people problems?

Annoying human won't stop taking pictures? Alma problems.

    Using “here” instead of “hear” and getting caught – Grammar and Spelling Police Problem.

  3. Read my last post (shameless self-promotion– blogger ego problem): NO BABYSITTER FOR REACTIVE DOG. Best blogger buddies live too far away to take up the challenge.

    Never cared about matching collars and leashes though. Not a fashionista.

    Oh I adore the pictures of your snow covered Newfs!

    Left both sets of leash/collars for the big dogs up at the cabin and not planning a return trip for a few weeks….dog people problems or new puppy has your head in a fog problems…you pick. 😉

    Hahahahaha! I love this. Somehow I escaped this meme. Considering the amount of time I spend on the Internet every day, this is shocking. Blogger problems?

    How about this:

    Every single coat pocket is filled with kibble dust. Dog people problems.
    Have to choose between lunch with a friend and going to pet expo. Dog people problems.

    Mailman afraid to deliver packages to your door. Dog people problems (just happened, I swear!)
    Never get to be in the bathroom alone. Dog people problems.

    love this post and the newfies in the snow!!!

  7. OMD! I was laughing all the way through. Not sure which was my fav, but the gal who couldn’t get her jeans off was a hoot. But then again, snow covered newfies are right up there!

  8. Left a lamb lung in my pocket and it reconstituted in the washing machine – where my poor husband had the luxury of finding the soggy mass. Dog people problems.

    I love the photos. I can’t even begin to imagine any of my dogs sitting still in the snow long enough to get covered for a cool photo. Nice Newfie perk!
