Our dog is a racist, is that odd?
We previously lived in a community that was filled with a large number of Native Americans. When we would have our dog, Dixie, in the car with us she would go ape shit over men who were not white- this was like everyone in the town. On walks and when company would come over she would make a huge ongoing scene barking and lunging at them.
Often a good Mexican/ republican friend of ours (don’t worry it is a loving reference that is an inside joke between us) would come over and she would loose it even after we introduced them. Sometimes she would calm down and forget he was there, then all of the sudden get startled and start going crazy again. We weren’t sure we could trust her with company because of her racism.
On the other hand her racism and aggression is a benefit for us. It warns would be intruders of her presence and advises them to stay away.
A Hispanic man just came to the door selling stuff and I was happy to have my racist dog here protecting me. Although he was polite and harmless I am still weary of solicitors in this town simply because of the number of home invasions that take place so frequently here.
I wearily opened the locked door (only because we were expecting a package delivery) but did not step outside while he talked to me. I was struggling to keep the dog inside because I would hate for her to push past me and attack some poor non-home-invading solicitor.
I am glad to have her, racism and all. Who knows one day we might need her to save us!
Now I want to know your door locking and answering habits. Also, have you ever had a racist protective pet? Do you lock your doors all the time? When you are home alone do you answer the door when someone comes a knocking? Spill!
