People who adopt everything. It's like...if I have a pet I like, I'm not going to adopt out to you if you already have 54904 petz and aren't even going to touch it, just stick it in a folder. There's no point.
And when there's a good hexing idea, say for like, a wooden hexie, and then EVERYBODY hexes one. I love orginal hexies!
and that people don't hex dachies enough. Dachies are great!
I used to be one of those people who adopted every petz I saw but I'm trying not to do that any more now that I'm older and realize it's rude and disrespectful, especially since the extent of most of what I do is breeding and showing. I do adore all of my hexies though and I play with them every day.
Also it's kind of frustrating when I'm breeding for something and just can't get the look I want.

My biggest annoyance is when I'm trying to get my dogz to jump through hoops and they make me wait for like an hour before they finally do it, and some of them won't even jump...they'll just knock the hoop down and glare at me.
I hate the adoption snatchers. It's why I set a limit on my adoptions now because I hate it when other people don't set a limit and the first post has like 6 dogs taken in it and the one or two I wanted to apply for were taken.
Also, I hate it when I spend my time to make an app/write a nice why and breed trades, only to have the person who hexed or bred what I wanted to trade for never respond to the thread. They're active on the forum, they just forgot about the thread or chose not to choose anyone? I'd be fine if they didn't choose me, but for them to just not choose anyone? I've even had people choose me as a winner for apps/whys and never send me the pet. I tried back in the day to remind them, but it didn't get me anywhere then, so I just forget about it these days. I don't want to be a pain. :-/
Also, when I breed for wanted ads and then get 5 PMs from people like 'omg if they don't pick this one can i have it?!!?' or 'soandso didn't choose this one, omg it's so cute can i have it!?' or even worse if they just ask in the thread if they can have it. I'm always nice and give it to whoever asked first but sometimes it really annoys me. It makes me happy if the person is polite and offers to trade for the pet though. It just depends on how it is done. PMs are the best way, I see no reason why someone should step in on someone else's wanted ad to ask for leftovers.
And I hate it when people 'type like this!!!!' and every sentence ends in '!!!!!'. Yeah, okay, it is a kid's game, but you don't need to be that excited about everything!!!!! It's worse than all caps imo.
A lot of things annoy me in petz/the PC, but the pros always outweigh the cons. There are some truly amazing people in the PC and I wouldn't even play petz if I didn't have all these wonderful people to enjoy it with.

Oh I agree 100%. We should have a 'biggest petzy highs' thread, hehe.
OK here's another gripe of mine:
When people offer me random trades to push me into giving them something - I don't handle guilt tripping very well, so I end up getting annoyed, and ignoring the request. If I've shown previous interest in their hexing or breeding, then fine - that's all well and good, but I always insist on 'I'll ask you first' because otherwise I end up with a whole bunch of 'meh' petz I didn't really want.

I chose the adoption thing. ;_; I try to be quite courteous and adopt a minimum of one pet, usually.. I did just start my game, though, and I don't have an excessive amount. xD I still have an amount I can handle and play with all of them. It makes me worried that if I put freebies up, people will take them and not really.. D: Care about them in the future..
I also HATE, in game, when your Petz struggle with the food bowl, and keep knocking it around. e__e; It's stopped me several times from feeling like I want to naturally raise my pets -- in that regard -- since it's just SO difficult sometimes to get them to just EAT something.

Ratqueen: ^ A video called "The Rise and Fall of Petz" was posted on YouTube in the last week of April. It brought a lot of new members to the forum, every day for weeks after its release, and probably more guests too. Still getting more than usual now.
