The whole "are you a dog or cat person?" conversation is so stupid, I think. But after going for my morning walk, I was baffled by the ridiculous behaviour of so many dogs, and how their equally baffling owners just stood there laughing about it all. What is the appeal in dogs?

Dogs are literally a decade long assault on your senses. They're loud, they smell, they never want to leave your sight

They want you to walk them all the time, they want you to feed them all the time, you have to bathe them all the time, and they want to walk beside you when you get up to get a glass of water.

I walk a lot, and I see dogs along the beach just running around with their dumb tongues hanging out, with people "cleaning up after them" and watching them fight with other dogs, which always spawns this awkward small talk between owners

I would list all the things that make cats better, but just imagine the exact opposite of what I just said, and you've got a nice little cat.

This criticism is not applied to labs, because labs are essentially overgrown cats, if raised properly

Dog owners are people who are infertile or afraid of the commitment a child requires. Dogs are for people who want to project their emotions onto stupid animals who will never progress to the point of being able to establish their own emotions (like a child does).

Thoughts?

colondee consider this a call out

You were going to get an angry rant from me until I reached the part about Labs. I love dogs and cats, but not those little dogs that look like cats.

Edit: This probably isn't Canucks talk.

I see one smart cat who saved a human's live, yet a majority of the cases involve dogs. Face it: dogs are smarter than cats. There is no argument regarding that. Police officers use K9's as there partners, and the disabled use dogs as guidance. Do we ever see cats doing that? No.

Disabled people generally use labs, because they are overgrown sensitive cats

And for every dog that saves a person, 150 more attack a person, or bite a baby

Nice try

I like cats better myself. But Canucks talk?

Anyway dogs need to much attention for my liking and requie way more upkeep. Cats are cleaner , self reliable and take care of any creepy crawlys at night. Not that I don't like dogs but I like cats more.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

I like both even though I don't own any dogs. It really depends on the type of person. My mother doesn't like dogs because she thinks they smell but my sister and my dad both like dogs.

humans and dogs are linked from earliest extents of our history. Dogs have even evolved their vocal communication to communicate with humans, something no other animal has done. They have been a part of our lives for as long as there have been human communities!

I first realized I was a dog person shortly after adopting a cat.

cats can be anti-social and way too territorial (my friend's thought I was his/ her scratching pole)... or at the other end of the spectrum they don't want to leave your lap.

On the other hand, dogs are loyal, will play with you (cats only go for yarn/ mice... haven't tried this myself but do cats chase balls? Doubt it); of course, there are mean ones too but if I had to choose I would much rather have a nice, handsome, furry canine than a cat (plus it's funny how society keeps portraying cat owners as crazy people: TBBT Sheldon Zazzles, Crazy Cat Lady-- never heard much bad against dogs)

They want you to walk them all the time, they want you to feed them all the time, you have to bathe them all the time, and they want to walk beside you when you get up to get a glass of water.

Same applies to cats and the even though you've gotta walk and bathe them, you have to take care of the litter box for cats and groom them as they get older and get lazier. It's just the commitment an owner has to give to their pets no matter which animal. It also shows the affection and friendship between the owner and dog if they walk beside you even if you're just getting a glass of water.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

True. But when a cat "attacks" a person, it's inconvenient. When a dog does it, it often turns tragic.
But I'm a cat and dog person. I like cats because they require very little attention and all you really need to do is feed, water and scoop. I like dogs because they will defend you and your home, love you unconditionally and they are funny as hell.

I like both - cats are easier to deal with - I do find dogs a pain sometimes (take forever to train!) - but still love them.

I guess I'm an animal lover.

Currently, in my household, we have:

2 cats (I rescued them from a farm house fire)
2 dogs
1 salamander
90 gallon Salt water aquarium (6 fishes, 1 hermit crab, 2 shrimp, and some tiny creatures)
750 gallon pond with coy and gold fish and an 19 year old red slider turtle (called Chris for some reason)

In August we'll be adding 2 Morgan horses.

It all depends on the cat and how it is raised aswell.. I had a cat that past away about 10 years ago that was an amazing cat. Friendly to everyone.. When ever one of my brothers hurt themselves and was crying she would be right next to them purring and showing concern. She never jumped on the table, counters or anything that could have food on it.. Or any small things that could fall and break. I miss that cat.

oh and here is another cat saving a life.
