Gender Color Confusion

I have been having trouble convincing Wild Child that Lilly-Grace is a girl dog.

I say, "Wild Child she is a girl."


Wild Child says, "No, she is brown. Boy dogs are brown..."

"...and girl dogs are white."

She is convinced. I don't know why she thinks this...could it be cartoons?

Bolt is white...but he is a boy.

The Grinch's Max is a boy...and he is brown.

Lady is brown...but she is a girl.

Mr. Wienie is a boy...and he is black...I must ask her what black dogs are.
Scooby Doo is brown and he is a boy.

Snoopy is a boy and he is white. Ok I don't think cartoons is where she is getting this...maybe she picked it up in my world...
Tori Spelling's pug Mimi was brown...and a girl.
Paris's Tinkerbell is brown...and a girl. Wait! I've got it...

Elle Wood's Brewster is brown...and a boy! However, he does wear dresses and has a "boyfriend." Which I felt was totally stupid and completely uncalled for...I guess there wasn't enough "homosexual content" for Hollywood...so they made the dog gay! argh.
Anyway I have not figured out this mystery...I finally went to ask...she is asleep! I guess you will just have to be on the edge of your seats until she wakes up....

Any theories?

Maybe she just likes that theory.

i've always disliked the second legally blonde movie because of the gay dog. i don't have anything against being gay, but that was just so unescesary.

So funny, lol!
When I taught art, I always told kids there were no boy or girl colors. Everyone should enjoy every color.

That's funny. I can't help you with the theories. Lots of time I don't understand my kids theories either. : )

I must be crazy because I totally get her logic. Brown is a boy color to me. And fluffy white is a girl color.

I get it. How old is wild child? I eerily relate to her : )

Funny post. Connor has the same brown dog. I asked him if his was a girl or a boy, and he said a boy. His name is Dave and he wears camo pants. He also has two white dogs that are both boys as well. I think he's partial to boys : )

Well I certainly would like to know myself! My son likes to think that all his stuffed animals, whether dogs or other species, are boys, despite their color. I can't wait to hear what her theory is, 'cause I sure don't have any. And I agree, what can be more gender confusing than a boy dog who wears pink dresses?! No wonder the kids are confused!

LOL...I have no doggie gender color theory. But the Mimi LaRue montage is darling!

Sending my best from Seattle.

I adore scooby doo. He is a real dude!!

Kim said...

My daughter says that all stuffed animals are girls and that she wishes our black, male dog, was a girl.

I always thought Lady was a red-head ? Cute how she analyzes their gender based on their color... Definately one for the books!

OceanDreams said...

Lol, this made me laugh. I loved learning about all of the different dogs. I wish Elle's dog wasn't gay too, so stupid! Well, maybe she is just being a sweet little girl and this will be a passing stage. Who knows?

Kado! said...

how funny....my boys were just watching Legally Blonde (please don't tell my husband) and they loved it so we popped in #2 and I had forgotten why I thought #2 was SO stupid! The stupid gay dog....that was a scene i could have done with out...I'm sure my boys are tramatized now.

she is all wrong on this, everyone knows dogs are boys and cats are girls.
