Why do guys hate being called cute?

I don't get it. Most guys hate it when a female calls them 'cute.' They prefer the more rugged term 'handsome.'

Get with it, guys. Cute can take you a lot closer to your goal. With handsome, you have to open doors, pay for meals, and fight off random attackers.

With cute, you get dog biscuits, back rubs, and lots of smoochies. And in the case of danger, you get picked up and carried to safety. Oh, and did I mention the yummy dog biscuits? (Of course with cute you also get annoying requests to 'come' and 'sit' and 'dance.')

In case you're wondering, yes, I am a very good dancer.

And I am very, very cute. So cute that even though I'm not supposed to be in my devotee's living room today, I'll be in there within an hour. Let's face it -- how can they resist the cuteness of me? Trust me, I'll be in there, lounging on my comfortable pillow, while she and two of her fellow authors plot another book. This month it won't be her book, but when it is her turn, my devotee (the not-nearly-famous-enough Heather Horrocks) ends up with a book that she will then very nicely ask me to help her write. And I will, because I'm just that kind of dog.

Sweet. Loveable. Incredibly talented and generous.

And humble.


  1. Oh, Gus, you are so cute. I'm going to put you on my blog roll over at http://thewhatifgirl.com

  2. Thank you. I am so glad you have succumbed to the cuteness of me. It is totally understandable.
