      Miss Paula I'm so with you on this one.

      I prefer dogs by a long shot! I honestly just have such a passion for dogs. I mean, hello that's why dogs are considered to be "Man's Best Friend" and not cats. lol

      I have such a great interest for dogs because they're just so friendly and love to be around people; they're social animals. Cats however, are not. Cats aren't pack animals like dogs, so they have solo personalities. Cats don't need people's company, but dogs just can't seem to get enough of us!

    CAT! well not dogs because I cant touch their saliva. Love just few cats, not dozen of them at one time. Always crawl up to my bed while i'm sleeping. snuggle at my legs while i'm studying. How can cat get mean, well except when you touch at a wrong place tongue

      They are very sneaky I think, and always look like they are going pounce on you.

        lol, That's so true. Cat's are so sneaky and they kind of even give me the creeps a little bit. I'm always worried that they're going to scratch me when they're not de-clawed.

    I like fish, and birds!
    At least dogs don't hassle them like cats do, so, dogs are better than cats for me! big_smile

    I prefer cats.  They're usually more cuddly, cleaner, and smaller than dogs.  But I'm sure I'd love dogs too;  I just don't have the patience to take them out for walks, so I don't have them as pets.

    I'm a dog person. I don't mind cats because my best friend has a cats, dogs, and horses.yikes

    My dog is the same Miss Paula. She wakes me in the morning, sometimes before my alarm goes off, and shes right at the door when I come home. Though once I'm home she's a mischievous puppy.wink

      But isn't great to have something that loves you that much,

      So what if they are a little mischievous,they just want attention!!

      If you're a dog person and there comes an opportunity to bring a kitty to the household I highly recommend the breed Ragdoll cat. They are known as dog-cats because they have so many characteristics that dogs have, like greeting you at the door and wanting to be wherever you are. I've had a total of five and they all acted this way. They will learn fetch and other dog games, and when they play they don't put out their claws or bite. I've never been scratched except by one of the kittens when I got him a little bit too riled up when playing. After he scratched me he looked so ashamed of himself; he was aware that he had caused me pain.

      Ragdolls have really soft fur, like a rabbit's and they flop over and have no problem with having their tummies rubbed (they love it actually!)

      The only caveat is that they aren't a breed that's good when left alone for very long. They can adapt but do best with a lot of companionship.

    For stews and roasts, I'd go with Dog.  Cats are good for stir-frys and grilling...

    Given a choice between the 2, I would always prefer to have a dog simply because dogs are more intelligent and loyal to their masters.

    I really like dog's but they're a lot of work! And you need a good place to own one. Right now I live in a condo so cannot really own a dog. I like really big cats though, they are fun haha.
