Before we start this article, let me share a fact with you – introverts are not shy, they just like observing more than they like talking! Yes, introverts enjoy time alone, but they enjoy spending time with their dog more! People? Not so much.
Introverts don’t like to engage in small talk, it’s just not their thing. While introvert dog parents try to avoid the crown, their dog forces them out and magically people from all corners of the world come to talk to them – making them extremely uncomfortable! Since you can’t avoid people, you have no choice but to deal with small talk! Having a dog doesn’t mean you’re open for conversation, but anyway… here are some things only introvert dog parents can understand!
1. If you live in a busy neighborhood, you dread walking your dog every day. If only you could just nod to people and be left alone… So when it’s time to go out for a walk, you wish there’s no one outside!
2. Unfortunately for you, the streets are never completely empty for you so people walking by stop you to play with your dog. Then the questions begin. And you’re left answering them with a smile plastered to your face.
3. You want to go to the dog park, but in the middle of the night when no one else would be there. But sadly your dog doesn’t deserve that, you take them to the dog park in broad daylight and shove earplugs in your ears and pretend you’re listening to music. In reality, you forgot your phone at home.
4. When people come to you, it’s like they’re coming down with a lengthy questionnaire. They need to know EVERYTHING about you and your dog. You avoid answering as much as you possibly can but realize they won’t leave you alone until you do.
How many of you are introvert dog parents? Let us know in the comments! Or don’t, I mean. Your wish! Watch out for Part 2!
