Bobby Humphreys, a competitive bodybuilder from Boonsboro, Maryland, has always loved dogs, but until two years ago, he never really cared for small breeds. He always felt that his pets should fit his own image, and even made fun of his male friends who owned small dogs. But one day everything changed and today Bobby shares his home with no less than 37 adorable chihuahuas.
Humphreys used to be a “Big Dog Guy” and he and his wife of 17 years had owned three Rottweilers. He loved their tough, imposing look and never even considered the idea of ever owning a small dog. In fact, he went as far as to poke fun at his male friends if they ever allowed themselves to be seen walking their girlfriends’ small canines. It was an ego thing, but one that Bobby quickly put behind him when he fell in love with Lady, a tiny Chihuahua that he now credits for getting him through the darkest period of his life. She opened his eyes to the love and support that small dogs are capable of offering unconditionally, and the big, strong bodybuilder is now what many would call a Small Dog Guy who looks after dozens of chihuahuas.
“All guys have egos and it’s a big d**k measuring contest. Who can have the prettiest girl? Who can have the biggest house? Who can have the best car? Who can have the toughest-looking dog? We’re all insecure at heart,” Humphreys told The Dodo about his view of dogs before falling in love with Lady.
On New Year’s Eve 2016, Bobby Humphreys’ life came crashing down on him. His wife of 17 years filed for divorce and walked out on him, and just a week later he injured his shoulder in the gym and learned that he needed reconstructive surgery. He started drinking and plunged into a deep depression. Luckily, his friend Constance Rogers was there for him during those troubled times, so one day, when she asked him to look after her pet chihuahua, Lady, after being kicked out of her home, he didn’t dare say no.
