Yet another reason I married the right one

We’re watching The Bachelor when the guy playing the Bachelor greets one of the four women whom he will eventually have to whittle down to one. The girl is walking toward him with open arms, and her dog, a cute black pug, scuttles underneath her feet. The pug obviously wants some cuddles, but the Bachelor doesn’t even look at it, won’t bend down and pat its head. He acts as if the pug does not even exist. Jon concludes, “He didn’t pet the dog. I would not be able to sleep with him after that.”
