Least punk dogs

shits

#1

Was cycling into work this morning and passed an aging punk (grey and black beard, 3/4 length shorts, Misfits hoodie) waiting for his Alsatian to finish doing a shit so he could pick it up in a little plastic bag.

It struck me that Alsatians must be the least punk dog of all time. If they’re into anything it would be po-faced Rotterdam techno and they don’t even take drugs.

It would be absolutely awful if dogs were allowed into gigs. Shitting everywhere and generally stinking the place up like a big load of hairy twats.

You seem like a real dickhead.


#3

nah, they’re well punk.

got to be something like a king charles spaniel.


#4

Bichon Frise


#5

surely big, bulgy eyes are punk?


#6

washing your hair = not punk

never seen a king charles with greasy hair


#7

that was my initial thought too. but they get scruffy really quickly, and the fact that they’re so un-punk probably makes them even more punk.

i think we need @Ruffers to go over what is and isn’t punk, definitively


#8

Yeah, my sister has a King Charles Spaniel, he’s an endearingly stupid little idiot but he’s definitely not punk


#9

yeah, they crossed my mind too but decided I didn’t want to try and spell it


#10

He’s probably in a DIY space at the moment


#11

I edited my misspelling


#12

editing spelling is not punk


#13

I’d say Alsatians were reasonably punk.

They were the scary dog when I was a nipper (in the 70s) before being replaced briefly by the Rottweiler (or the devil dog) and then later by a series of dogs with bigger jaws.


#14

It’s the association with authority (like the bit in When We Were Kings about them being a symbol of Belgian oppression in DR Congo) that makes them seem so unpunk.


#15

Who wants to be a punk? CG And Ware. You want in on that?


#16

grouchy hasn’t made it over to the new boards :’(


#17

I though he was twee indie?


#18

my grandparents always had alsatians since I was a wee baby so idk I’ve never seen them as scary


#19

surely a leading authority on what is and isn’t punk


#20

Making definitive assertions about what is and isn’t punk doesn’t seem very punk.
