this is a SECRET

Don't tell Coco....

I think she has a crush on me. But... *sigh* I don't want her for a girlfriend. There's nothing wrong with her, but I don't know.... She's kinda crazy and I don't really know how to play with her because she's so little and I'm afraid I'll hurt her and I'm pretty young to have a girlfriend and I don't want to be tied down and she's even kinda related to me....

I know a lot of you doggins have girlfriends and boyfriends, and Tanner recently even had a crisis about having a wife and someone called Mrs. Dress and a sparkly princess all at once, so I'm wondering what you all would advise. Mean Sister Fig is no help, because she never even LIKED anyone before Balboa came along, and now they're in a long-term relationship. Coco's pretty insistent when she gets something into her little head, so I need a GOOD excuse to give her for why I don't want to be her boyfriend.

I'm going to see her this weekend, so... anyone have any ideas?


Ruby Bleu said...

Hmmm Tad, that is a tough one. Here are a few options...
1. 'Sorry Coco, I just don't like you that way, can we just be friends?'.
2. 'Sorry Coco, I'm already taken. XXX and I are seeing each other. It's serious.' XXX is fill in the blank with favorite dog's name...just make sure XXX knows what you are doing. Oh, and if it turns out you choose a boy doggie...well, that has another meaning altogether and might have Coco thinking twice about you as a potential suitor.
3. 'Sorry Coco, I have been called to serve others and mustn't have any girlfriends. Go in peace my furry friend'
4. Always have Fig around...not letting Coco be near you alone so the subject is totally avoided

OK, not sure that actually helps...I don't have any boyfriends myself so how should I know. Good Luck Tad, I'm sure you'll make the right decision.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

I'll be your, um, what's the opposite of a beard?


Toby said...

Ok Tad. I know the perfect excuse. You and Coco are "kinda related"!!! That in itself is a good enough reason. Trust me... I've watched enough episodes of Jerry Springer to know that it's a no go!! And you and Coco do NOT wanna end up on that show!!!

Tobes :)

I'm just trying to picture your babies...

Tofu Burger said...

Hmmmm... apart from LingLing I try to avoid all girls! Yeah LL is cool and all but all we really do is play bitey face all day long, nothing romantic. So you should at least explore the oppurtunity to see if a platonic type of relationship would work. Or you could just say...'ewwww CoCo! You're like my cousin' This way she'll be so embrassed she won't ever bring the subject up again, and you still retain your boyish spirit, without really hurting her feelers or having to make up a girl or pretend you are a gay chinese dog.


Peanut said...

I agree with Toby. You don't want to mess with someone your related to.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad.
I really don't want to be in your position. Its kinda hard because of course you don't want to hurt Coco's feelings.
Being related sure is a good excuse or
Maybe if you tell her that you are called to do great things before being in a relationship.
Sorry Tad I really don't have a good advice for you, but like Ruby said I am sure you will make the right decision.
Have a nice day

G'day Tad, I'll be your girlfwiend if you don't mind a long distance welationship. It looks like I've lost Jackson to the that doggie nurse!

Joe Stains said...

hmmmm tell her you are gay?


Sophie Brador said...

I'm with Joe. This is a total no-brainer. Tell her your gay and then you can be best friends instead.

Luckie the Dachie said...

Hey Tad,
I have no idea how to deal with a very persistant suitor. But I'll have to go with the rest..just tell her you're gay! :) And don't forget to do that elegant ballet pee stance you did the last time. I think she'll get it?

Sweets-littlebigman said...

Hi Tadpole,
I agree with the rest of the other's. Tell her that doggies of her kind don't float your doggie boat. Then again, Ruby Bleu had some very good points. And be careful, Jerry Springer people are very, very scary!


P.S. Have a great weekend

Reina the Doxie said...

How Tadpole, You are so wanted.

Well, rejecting a girl is really tough thing to do.
Maybe you can tell her something like:
Coco, you are beautiful, but some doggie has already stole my heart away.
Or something like:
My mummy does not allow me to have girlfrens.

Best of luck!

Ume said...

Oscar Airedale said...

Ferndoggle said...

Oh Tad...first loves are always tough. Tell Coco you're in love with Ruby Blue...problem solved. You already love Bostons & she's not taken.

And CoCo's got WAY too much hair for you.


ToFFee said...

I think Coco is kinda cute..

I'm not sure because I'm still young to have that "puppy love" fever going around.

Just a few suggestions:
1. We are still young.. and maybe you'll see one better than me.. (yuck!)
2. I want to spend my bachelor days to the fullest... let's see when I'm done (yeah, like after a thousand years)
3. I can't leave my pawrents! They'll get hives if I'm not around (hope that works)
4. I think I'm having this very bad allergy when you're around. I hope it's not you.. really... but achooo achooo (then run away!)
5. Hi Coco.. I just had an itch to give you a hair tint, blowdry and pawdicures.. (I think that gay thing would work)

Oh well.. do let us know how it works out. You could always use all of them in case one doesn't come through!

p.s. if all fails, I suggest get a mask so she wouldn't recognise you. only when she's around..

...sweet saidie... said...

Whatever you do, don't love her and leave her!!!!

♥ Saidie!

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

G'day Tad, Maybe you can pwetend to be my boyfwiend and that will kill 2 birds with 1 stone by getting wid of Coco and maybe Jackson will leave the hussie nurse he is dweaming about!

Bella the Boxer said...

Hi Tad,

OK, here are two ideas. First, go to and order a copy of "He's Just Not That Into You" and send it to Coco anonymously. If that doesn't work, follow the others' advice and pretend you are gay (and then, take it a step further by participating in a gay pride pet parade like I did this weekend!! It worked for me, as the amorous fellow down the street now thinks I'm gay and has stopped his pursuit).

Lots of luck - xoxo, Bella

What to do... what to do...

Are you into Ruby Bleu? (if so, go for it man - she's WAAAAAY Cool)!

If not, just tell her you go both ways, but are leaning a little to the other side at this time.

What do I know? I don't even know if I'm in a relationship.

Goob love,

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Hum.. I hope you'll find a good explaination for Coco.

Scruffy said...


You're really in a bind. Well I have to agree with some of the other doggies. Telling her you're gay would be best I guess. At least you don't really hurt her feelings.
