Sexual Quotient (SQ): The Irrational Attractiveness of Dog Ownership – Especially in New York City
And virtually every woman stopped to pet the dogs – a fact that amazed Heeb. “I just don’t get it,” he said to Narc, who contributed the dog idea. “Dogs repel pussies, yet they attract women.”
“Dogs are the oldest chick magnet in the book, yo. And I’ve seen plenty of single honies use dogs to get men talking to them,” Narc said.
“But it doesn’t make any sense to me, this whole New York dog phenomenon,” Heeb insisted. “Why the hell would anyone date me for my dog? It’s not like we could bring the dog to restaurants or art museums with us. I mean, the woman can’t exactly date my dog. And then there’s the whole dog shit problem. What’s so romantic about that?”
“But your choice of dog says a lot about your style. Like your clothing,” Evan tried to explain.
“But my dog could die at any moment. So does my style die at that point? Would I automatically get dumped when the dog croaks?”
“By then you’d probably get sympathy from her. And you could always go out and buy another dog.”
“Well that raises another point! She could always just go to a store and buy a dog for herself. She doesn’t need to date me to get the dog…I’m telling you it’s the most irrational thing I’ve ever seen.”
“They appeal to the maternal instinct,” Evan chimed in, offering his own explanation. “Like babies, they’re warm and cuddly and need lots of attention.”
“Look, they may be warm and cuddly, but they’ve got sharp teeth, they shed hair, and they shit.”
