Racist dogs

WASHINGTON - When it comes to weird canine behavior, this one may take the cake: A racist dog.

But according to Dr. Katy Nelson, an Alexandria veterinarian who answered questions during a live chat on Thursday, the behavior is not all that uncommon.

"Every time [my dog] is around my friend who is African American, she freaks out," wrote Kathrine, a commenter during the chat. "She is usually docile and friendly. Anything I can do about this? It's embarrassing."

It's not racism, it's survival instinct. Dogs don't like being what's for dinner.

It is true then... some dogs ARE smarter than their owners! LOL... Ok, ok, I was race baited on that one! It's really not my fault!

Oh God... I'm starting to sound like a liberal!

Actually I would guess that as most African-American diets are different and one tends to smell like one eats then perhaps the dog was just reacting to an unfamiliar human aroma... I lived with Africans who later became Americans (some of the only TRUE African-Americans in this country..) and I have to say that their diet was very foreign and they did smell different. Not in a bad way... just different; very different.
