Men vs. women. Just my curiosities, just for fun.
Ok, so I have noticed something, and I am curious about everyone else thoughts and experiences.
I noticed that it's mostly men that are hesitant about Dean.
Sitting in the grocery store parking lot yesterday and today, in the truck, with the window down, and Dean hanging his head out the window, but very visibly on lead with me holding it, men would avoid eye contact with me, go way around the truck, ect. But women would call out to me about how cute, or handsome, or what ever they thought he is. The would ask to pet him, really had no problem being around him. It got me thinking back. It's always been men that cross the street when they see Dean (Who walks nice by the way, he isn't a growling, snarly, mess, nor is he running around, jumping, being a bum. He's by my side) It's men that ask if he is ok with people. And my mom brought up the time Kim, my sister, was in the woods alone with her two bull terriers, when some guy pulled up on a 4 wheeler, got off, and asked if her dogs bite. She replied only if I tell them to, and he got back on his four wheeler and left.
So it got me thinking why? Why would the men be the ones to act this way? Now obviously not all men lol I have had a few want to pet him and such. I would just assume that it would be the other way around I guess. I don't think they have bad intentions at all. When we were in the truck waiting for my mom to come out of the grocery store, they were literally just going to do some shopping, but they were still avoiding eye contact with me, and all that. It's just something I noticed that happens more than would be coincidence.
I've tried to google it, but all that comes up is dogs afraid of men.
