I was talking to my folks about how I was thinking of getting a dog and I mentioned corgis. My dad said, "You don't want one of those, those are girl dogs." So I thought I put up a poll to see if that was how people thought of corgis. And in the proud tradition of Giant Bomb posts I had a typo the subject line.

#5 Posted by Inkerman (1448 posts) -

No, but I'd say they're probably old people's dogs. The only two people I know with Corgis are old.

What?

This is the dumbest thing.

I don't want to bad-mouth your father, but buy whatever the hell you want.

Anyone who attributes gender to non-gendered things (like dogs, cats, cars, etc.) are extremely self-conscious and are likely worried about their own gender identification as they are like not secure with themselves. Like what you like.

Dog's are for people.

Doesn't matter what breed they are.

Get a Corgi, screw your dad.

Nah. Will Smith has one and he loves her.  
 
Dogs always fall into gender/class stereotypes but ultimately it's up to the owner who trains the dog. Small sized chihuahuas aren't annoying and for rich white girls either, they will grow up and be what you make them to be.

I don't think you have to be a girl to see how fricking adorable Corgis are!

#12 Posted by ShadowConqueror (2994 posts) -

Nope, corgis are fucking awesome.

Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

I agree with this. Dogs are just dogs. As long as you take care of it and you're allowed to legally own it, you can have any pet you want, regardless of who you are.

Cats > Dogs

#17 Posted by Still_I_Cry (2494 posts) -

There are no "dogs for girls/guys."

Only people that think there are.

#18 Edited by NeVeRMoRe666 (261 posts) -

I don't think Dogs can be "girl dogs" or "manly dogs." They're not property or fashion accessories, they're friends that you keep with you. I think it's less about the particular breed of dog and more about whether or not that individual dog's personality matches up well with yours.

#19 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -
Yes, get a dragon instead.

#21 Posted by Stonyman65 (2404 posts) -

I have a hard 60lbs minimum for dogs, so I say yeah.

#22 Edited by Village_Guy (2402 posts) -

Nope, I don't view any dogs as either "girl dogs" or "manly dogs", and Corgis are pretty awesome.

Now I don't know your dad, but I figure that he is one of those people that see smaller dogs as for girls and bigger dogs as manly dogs.

#23 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5120 posts) -

Every girl you walk by is going to stop to talk to you about your cute corgi, it would be girly not to own one.

I own a miniature dachshund and I eat fucking nails for breakfast.

#24 Posted by Milkman (16218 posts) -

There's no such thing as a "girl dog." Get the dog you want, fuck society.

#25 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

Dogs do not fit into the "dogs for girls" and "dogs for boys" categories. They do, however, fit into the "are a husky" and "aren't a husky" categories. Get a dog from the "are a husky" category.

#26 Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1782 posts) -

Corgis are manly dogs for manly men. Don't let their cute faces fool you, they are the fiercest dog in the world.

#27 Posted by Ketchupp (671 posts) -

Get a Swedish Vallhund. It's a mans corgi.

Word. Dragons are awesome.

Chloe says that your dad can go shove it
#30 Posted by DarknessMyOldFriend (178 posts) -

Corgis are for people who are willing to have an incredibly high maintenance dog. They are small but they are absolutely a working breed, so they need tons of physical activity. They are highly territorial, they will try to herd anything that moves, and they are notable for being the worst shedding breed of dog. They range in temperament from intense to neurotic, and perhaps worst of all they are incredibly easy to over feed, and the vast majority of corgis you see are obese because their owners are either uninformed, weak willed, or lazy.

They are not girl dogs or boy dogs, they are dogs for people who know what the fuck they are doing.

#31 Posted by mlarrabee (2755 posts) -

Corgis are Welsh herding dogs. Manly men herd sheep on the Hills of Wales while smoking pipes. With their faithful Corgis.

Don't follow the second part of this advice. If your dad says that Corgis are only for girls, he's probably not going to be cool with you making sexual advances toward him.

#32 Posted by AlisterCat (5396 posts) -

@runcrash: Tell your dad Will Smith has one.

#33 Edited by MooseyMcMan (9714 posts) -

The Fresh Prince has one, so no.

Though, I won't deny that there are "girl dogs." I'm talking about poodles. Even without their hair getting all ruined and fancy looking, they're still girl dogs.

#34 Posted by Veektarius (4126 posts) -

I disagree with others claiming that you can easily shed the restrictions of society. Pomeranian is a girl dog. I think a Corgi's a borderline case at worst, though.

#35 Posted by Korwin (2720 posts) -

No, they're just annoying.

#36 Posted by KoolAid (737 posts) -

Go tell your Dad the internet said no.

#37 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1229 posts) -

You should get a manly dog, like a grizzly bear.

#38 Posted by Phatmac (5686 posts) -

yep. get a lizard or something to show how manly you are instead.

#39 Posted by BionicRadd (617 posts) -

They're "dogs that help you talk to girls". No bullshit, get a cute little dog like that, take it to a park or around your apartment complex and bam, chicks come a running. Aint sayin itll get you laid, but it beats "what's your sign?" all the way to hell.

#40 Posted by President_Barackbar (3344 posts) -

Well, Will Smith has one, so yes.

#41 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

No. Don't be dumb.

#42 Edited by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

Of course, you should get a giant fire shooting 10 legged dragon octopus who drives a motorcycle, wears an eye patch and smokes cigars.

Cats > Dogs

Mostly because there are a shitton of dogs in my neighborhood and they get into barking contests(seems like it) in the wii hours of the morning, including my neighbor's dogs, fuck dogs.

To answer your question, no, pets are for people, except Chihuahuas, they were put on earth by the devil for the devil's minions.

#44 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

Well, I own a Papillon, so I really have no idea what's considered a 'girl' dog or what's considered a 'boy' dog.

A dog's a dog. Unless it's a poodle. Fuck those fugly-ass dogs.

#45 Posted by Grixxel (758 posts) -

They are great fucking dogs. /end

#46 Posted by MattadorD (63 posts) -

I would totally agree with you day if they weren't so cute. They have all the qualities of what I consider "girl" dogs, mostly being small, but then they are so energetic and cute. I occasionally have to watch two Corgis, and it is the best because no matter what they are always happy to see me and I'm so happy to see them.

Now that's not a good pet recommendation. All that smoking is going to shorten its lifespan!

Look at these guys! I wouldn't give a shit even if there were such a thing as girl dogs!

Aw, who's a cute puppy! You are! Yes you are!
