Even though most of us, as responsible pet guardians, have spayed or neutered our dogs, effectively making them “its”, we have been struggling here at doggies.com with how to refer to animals without offending either gender. Did you ever ask someone “What’s his name?” or “How old is he?”, only to have the person look down his nose and say “SHE is whatever…”
We definitely don’t want to offend, so, I’ve been asked to run a poll to see what you think. How should we be gender-inclusive on the blog, as well as in our articles and other features?
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
