Dog or cat, neither or both?
While out riding today I inexplicably wondered if road cyclists tended to be dog people, cat people, or....

Me: dog.

Dog. Specifically pugs.

I have two cats but would like a dog, too. Just can't make a dog work right now due to the fact that I have an apartment with no yard and the wife and I are gone for upwards of 15-16 hours a day.

I have one cat.

Just adopted a cat today. I consider myself a dog person but just don't have the time for one right now.

Living in a 4 bedroom house alone called for a pet though. The silence was killing me.

Two dogs and one truly psychotic cat.

I mean psychotic like bat **** crazy. My daughter said once she tasted human blood she was never the same.

surgeonstone 04-12-14 04:51 AM

I agree.

I'm a cat 6 and I have one cat. Actually I'm a dog person, I had a dog for about eight years but he got hit by a car and killed a couple months ago. Well I still sort of have the dog. He got hit while we were on vacation and my in-laws were watching him. They felt really bad, so they had him cremated, I still have the ashes, not sure what to do with them. When I got married a few years ago my wife wanted a cat so we got one of those. Still have the cat.

2 cats. I like dogs just fine but cats are a better fit for my personality.

2 Cats.

Both, CarlQCat is my buddy and constant workshop supervisor, Molly is our son's Lab/setter mix, Canadian rescue, dawg. They get along fairly well, as long as Molly realizes that Carl is king of the entire world and rule with an iron paw.

The addiction thread is swarming with dog people. There's something to that.

Both in theory, but family members with allergies prevent having cats.

Dogs and birds (cockatiels) for me.

We have had some tough luck with dogs lately (see my sig), but recently added an Australian Shepherd to the family.

I like dogs too...but my cats are fascinating creatures... I have Foundation Bengals... Asian Leopard Cat hybrids. I may take the next step and get an actual ALC...I'd need to build a nice enclosure though...

I'd actually love to have dogs again, but I don't have much in the way of land, and my favorite breed will always be German Shepherds.

Big dogs = big yard. Lots of training too, but you can't beat the kind of security two big Shepherds can provide...

Someday...When the kid is done with college and I can move to greener pasture.

I prefer being petless in all respects

Dog, obviously. Cats are pointless :)
