Dogs or cats?
66 Comments on "Your Turn"
Primarily dogs (have 2 Shihtz and 1 shepard/lab mix) and a black & white kibby. All are pets I've rescued. I think animals appreciate you even more when they know they've been rescued. Damn, I love my pets (and my husband!!!!!) 🙂
Oh yeah and my husband put the dogs out the other night. He fell asleep and old lady dog fell in the pool, she wasn't able to get out on her own. Luckily it's a party pool but she still wasn't in the most shallow end. She was just sticking her nose above the water and Soldier was barking her head off trying to get help.
That would have been tragic and how to explain it to my son…horrific.
That's super cool, @Robin. Something new to photograph 😉
Remember hearing about FAIDS long ago – the (real) article read like it was from the Onion. Extreme. Glad the kitteh prognosis is good, and kudos to your rescue friend that high tailed it back to the shelter.
@7 – oatmeal 🙂
I knew what that comic was; clicked the link just to confirm 😉
Cleodacat – that is 100% AWESOMO!
Feel like I just read a Northern Exposure recap or something! MOOSE on your DECK! In real life no less!
I used to have an echidna game trail in my yard … But they're so much smaller than a MOOSE! Boggle!
I prefer cats, but I like most dogs. I used to have a Boston Terrier, she was awesome. I've had cats my entire life.
Love my cat but if I could, I would like a dog too but the idea of trapping a dog in the house for 8 hours breaks my heart. Worse leaving it outside.. :'(
Why can't we have both?? My Sausage dog loves cats but I'm not so sure many of them love him back…
Auntlicky, great story! Same for you Writergirl.
All animals have a soul and personality..Even horses Rowdy. Get to know one and you'll change your mind.
Interestingly horses come running up to me when I see them in a pasture. It's an odd phenomena. Of course dogs love me too. They know who's safe.
L?VE all animals – currently have 4 cats, 2 foster cats, 1 dog, 1 foster dog, & caretake 2 managed TNR'd colonies. All rescued, 4 of the 6 cats are "special needs", & the dogs are both "senior special needs". I just believe that animals have more highly evolved souls than humans. ? Spay, neuter, & Peace, Love, Rescue! ?
You are awesome! 🙂
Also, cats are a*holes.
And serial killers.
Both and they sleep together. Soo adorable.
Both. Currently we have two cats (one 2-year-old and one 17-year-old) and one dog (a 12-year-old). The cats don't get along with each other well, but the dog — an 85-pound Chow-Akita mix — loves both of the cats.
I love them all.
Im so lucky im not allergic!
Dogs, especially my boxer.
Dawgs, fostering two 5 week old puppies. So freakin cute.
I'm highly allergic to fur, but can handle dogs with hair, so hairy dogs it is! I love cats, but after 15 minutes around them, I'm dying. 🙁
I have a cat that acts like a dog. She growls at the UPS man. She comes when called and loves my lap. She's no ordinary cat. Her name is Spot and she's been featured on The Colbert Report. She's just a great cat.
BOTH!! Have always had both and they've always gotten along
but love cats and just like dogs
Both. I consider myself "bi-critter".
Dogs but i love all animals really, except horses. Those dead eyes they have scare me.
Both. My Pup makes sure my house is safe and my Cat lets me know when to lose the attitude.
Neither. I am allergic to both.
Pekingese person here.
So yeah, both. Duh.
Dogs and cats.
My dog is plastic and my cat is paper. And they both have class rings.
I had 3 cats that eventually got old & died and now have a 4 yr old yellow lab/ golden retriever mutt who is my baby. He was quite a terror as a puppy, though!
Do I have or do I prefer.
Have – both.Prefer – cats. Way less trouble.
I love the kittehs, but if I had to choose, puppehs all the way.
I love them both. They have such personalities! Once i had party st my house and everyone was inside chatting. I went into kitchen to straighten up and there is the cat, on the table with the food, dragging slices of turkey to the edge of table, right into the 2 waiting dogs mouths!!!!! Cat did that every now and then- i thought it was cool.
I have moose that come by regularly and both seem to just look at each other like lost kin. I've brought the dogs in only to have the moose come up my deck so she can look at them through the glass doors.
I love all animals but currently only have 2-20 yr old cats. When Lucy and Ethel go over the rainbow we're getting a dog.
They are, but they're big, sweet babies. Most importantly, they can handle our Alaskan Winters, and yet are really mellow, couch potatoes when it's too hot/cold to be out.
Both, especially living together.
WOOOOF! And my doggie seconds that!
