I like both.....but.....I tend to be more of a "cat" person....!!!!
yeah i am just weird. i like both. it is just that i have a dog. dont want to hurt his feelingsLOL
Cats are born of pure evil! I loke dogs, because, get this, they have the ability to love you back! Cats do not have this "feature", so I like dogs way better!
Cats rule, dogs drool!
Cats go to college to get more knowledge, dogs go to jupiter to get stupider.
Catsy Catso Cats Rock!!
I like cats more because dogs are loud and mean and ugly. (Please don't kil l me for saying that.)
(I'm not the same guest from above me lel)
>-> I tend to like both dogs and cats, but I lean towards cats more if ONLY because of my own dog. I have 2 cats and a dog. Said dog is Sasha. and Sasha? iS REALLY NOISY AND SHE BARKS AT ME AND MY BROTHER LIKE SHE WANTS TO EAT US--
Also she nearly bit our neighbor.
I'd love to get a little pug or a bulldog, but nope. We're stuck with Sasha sadly. :v
Animal abuse and clruelty are not how it works.
You better have been joking.
It seems my previous post ran away. It might return after this one. IDK. It is a harsh world we live in. Thorns and poo are part of life, and we need to be aware, lest we get pricked or we step in it.
Nevertheless, not everything about poo offends our nose nor is everything about thorns sticking us in our sides. Indeed, look at a rose bush. Here poo is used to fertilize it and grow its thorns, but also it grows beautiful, fragrant, flowers. This is well worth the annoying thorns and poo. Don’t you think so?
About the post, I wasn’t really joking, but I don’t really expect anyone to do that, of course. I wrote it to make a point.
It is interesting that many people will scream about beating a dog that wants to rip you apart, but think nothing of leaving them chained and ignored until they go crazy. Most abuse is not physical, like beatings, it’s psychological. Many chain their dogs because they cannot control them. (Cats are much less social than dogs. They can tolerate being alone much longer than dogs. However, even cats can be vicious if they are not properly socialized.)
I’ve seen many dogs that are alpha in their keeper’s house. Sometimes the dog is alpha to the whole family; sometimes it is alpha to only the mother and children, but when the husband/father, or older teenage male, is home, he is alpha and the dog is subordinate. Sometimes the alpha human is unaware his dog is dominating the family, or at least claims to be unaware. The reality is the dog is use as tool for his abuse. Sometimes it is the human mother that is alpha, and she will let the dog rule her children, as if they are sheep that needs tended to. This also is just parental abuse.
These dogs do not have to be big dogs either—little ankle-biters can and do dominate even teenage children and adults. Of course, sometimes the family is too dumb to know their dog is the boss.
It amazes me how many will bow to their dog’s aggressive behavior, which to the dog is submission, and the dog becomes an alpha. The dog then becomes aggressive to anyone it perceives as a challenge to its alpha status. They lose control of their dog and then the dog is penned or chained, and left to rot --or worse, allowed to dominate everyone in its circle.
For multiple dogs, this can be very dangerous. Normal friendly pets will attack their keepers when led by an aggressive alpha. With these types of attacks, it may be a few stitches when confronted by smaller dogs. With larger dogs, it is hospital or the morgue. Little children do not have a prayer even with small dogs.
These types of dogs have attacked me. I am a very skilled marital artist, and even with these skills, it is very difficult to defend myself against two dogs or even one large dog. I use pepper spray and a telescoping bite stick, weighted on the end. With these, I rarely have a serious problem. The dogs fair better too.
Years ago, the rules were changed, requiring an armed law enforcement officer when going to residences where large (or multiple) aggressive dogs are present. Most of the time this is to keep aggressive keepers at bay as much as it is for the aggressive dog(s). There are lower forms of human life out there, and with them are low forms of pet life. Not all are pets. Some are improperly trained “guard dogs” who will attack anyone except their master.
Many times the keeper(s) of aggressive pets will bring the dog(s) (sometimes cats) to us. They will sometimes act as if they are trading in their worthless pet for another one to screwup. We do not adopt out pets in this case. Not until they present a certificate showing education for dog socialization and training. Some are too stupid to learn this. It does happen that some pets are just touched in the head to begin with, and nothing an average person or an expert can do will fix this. In any case, you really do have to be smarter than the dog to keep one properly.
One more thing, if you have to beat a dog to keep it from biting you or someone you care for, then you should do it. Give it everything you have, you may not get a second chance.
Most dogs are fine pets, and we love them because they are very lovable. Many more would be if they are properly trained. The guest poster is a case in point about this kind of pet behavior. I’m not blaming him/her –maybe mommy and daddy, because they know and choose to keep the status quo. This is not rare. I wish it was, but it’s not.
On a much brighter note, most pet keepers are responsible and loving toward their pets. They are smarter than their pets (mostly), and the pets are well cared for and have happy lives. Loving families and individuals from all over the world adopt pets every day. I help make that happen.
