11. Even in 'real' life, if I happen to detest a person's politics,

I try to overlook that for the occasion of our encounter if it isn't thrown in my face. And I'd certainly never hold the owner's politics against the dog. Although funny thing: occasionally in summer when it was still daylight til almost 9, I'd be sitting outside with the chows when bedtime rolled around. The alpha, Freedom, always set up a several minute sociable bark fest directed to me when I announced 'we're closing, girls.'

Anyway, on one such occasion a fairly nice neighbor lady happened to be out for her evening stroll, and I mentioned to her that I sometimes wondered exactly what Freedom was saying. The lady pretended surprise and said, "Don't you know? She's a Republican and she's explaining politics to you!"

Well, considering we were sitting close to that year's presidential campaign sign, I found it pretty funny. Cackled so much it was hard to pretend to be offended.
