Lena Dunham is a really talented lady who certainly has an interesting take on things.
That's why her show Girls is such a hit! It's so unique.
One of her stranger opinions is on dogs and talking about them in public.
"I also realize that writing about dogs is a very tricky business. It’s nearly impossible to do without some simpering sentimentality. In a dream world, you write about your dog and you’re J. R. Ackerley. Or perhaps your words will have the droopy intelligence of a Thurber dog. Jo Ann Beard’s essay “The Fourth State of Matter,” a stunning account of a mass shooting in an academic community and its surreal aftermath, describes a dying dog with such eloquent precision that you can see every heartbreaking curve of his body, feel every labored breath, and you reflect on how we all fit together as a mesh of messy creation. But, more often, you’re writing “Beethoven.” “Marley and Me” if you’re lucky.
The same caveats apply to conversation about dogs. Just discussing your dog can be as tiresome and offensive as talking about the weather, your own dreams, or the newest wrinkle in your married sex life. At least when people talk about their children, there is a chance that the kid will grow up to be President."
We talk about our dog all the time! Lots of people talk about their doggies!
Because dogs are so great and cute, who wouldn't want to talk about them??
Sorry, Lena but we disagree, dogs are too cute not to be talked about all the time!! LOLz!
