So, going in and out of airports for 2 days I met ALOT of people. Well one lady had this cute little dog with her, but it's tongue was hanging out the side in a way that dogs do when they are sedated. So I said, "cute dog, is she ok, I mean her tongue". This lady got so mad, said, "Would you walk up to someone's kid and ask that question? This is my baby, I hold her like a baby, I love her like a baby, she's my baby." Umm, sorry, but she is a dog, and I love my dogs, don't get me wrong, but it seems like she was humanizing this dog. This dog was so important you couldn't even politely ask if something was wrong. WHICH by the way, I HAVE asked other parents, when I notice something MIGHT be wrong, if their child is OK. So, my answer would have been ummm, YES. BUT, I was honestly too stunned to really say much except, "uh, she's a dog. But sorry if I offended you" Seriously though, did I really do something that bad?

I think I'm with AllAboutKeely. If you admit the questions you ask are a bit nosy and you don't like the reactions you're getting, that should be a CLUE to stop asking those kinds of questions. LOL That will solve the problem. Some people can't get over the nerve some people have to just walk up to total strangers asking questions that are none of their business (whether it's about a dog, child, personal it doesn't matter).
"Honestly, I can't understand why someone would get so offended, even if you considered it nosy for me to ask" You just answered your own question. You're alienating people with your rude and nosy questions. It's called "social cues" and you're totally missing them. If you want to keep pissing people off and getting that reaction, by all means continue but don't act shocked when you get that reaction.
