Seven years later, I have a little Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher mix named Pinch, as well as a big furry cat, two Sphynx cats, and a husband who is constantly lamenting that he “wish he knew what he was getting himself into.” I’m sure he would have preferred that I had an obsession for knitting or stamp collecting rather than four-legged friends, but when I fully unleashed the pet crazy on him, it was too late –- we were already married.

It’s easier when pet owners are equal in this commitment.

As much as I’d love for him to share my pet-obsession, I know it will never happen.

I think the difference in how we see the role of pets in our lives, and more specifically dogs, comes from our very different upbringings.

If your crush’s dog is playing with yours, check out the strange dog’s collar, then say (in hearing distance from his owner): “Lookin’ good, Rover. If your dog is humping a cute stranger’s dog, introduce yourself and quickly bring up the matchmaking skills of Pongo and Perdita in ‘101 Dalmatians’. Conversation will flow easily if you’re talking about the one thing you know you already have in common: dogs.

If it’s chilly, bring a thermos of hot chocolate to the dog park and be ready to share.

Dating afterward has been even worse: the anxiety of getting ready for a first date, finding the meeting place, introducing yourself, and wondering what to talk about. Going through the whole gallery of Fido’s pictures: not fine. My thought is: Surely the guys on these sites, at these events, and at the dog park can at least tolerate dogs and may even, truthfully, love them. In New York City, small dogs are the norm, as well as pocket-size pooches, so guys here often think that a dog more than 25 pounds is more like a horse and should be approached cautiously. (For reasons unrelated to their dog-loving natures, I no longer date Dan or Steve, though I’m sure they will make some pooches great doggie daddies.) So, what’s my point? And dating when looking for the right doggie daddy (or mommy) for your pooch is even tougher.
