I have had both and I do mean both. If I remember right I have had up to 24 dogs and 32 cats at one time. For the most part I do prefer dogs over cats. Dogs are usually just a little more compliant than cats. I say usually as I have had a few cats that were more like dogs. One cat called Smokie, a blue/gray medium hair cat, was one I called my garden cat. Everytime I went into the garden to work he would follow me, jump up on my back and look over my shoulder at what I was doing. Another one was a pure white half Manx by the name of Monkey that came when called by name. He refused to pay attention to the usual kitty-kitty call. He would follow me almost everywhere. If I worked on my truck he would jump up on the front fender and watch me. He trained himself to use the toilet in the bathroom. He refused to use litter or to go outside.

Dogs for the most part though are more compliant and obey commands better.

I like all animals--well, mammals, I suppose. But I really love dogs and I take in abused and abandoned ones.  I have 2 pit bulls and one lab/border collie, and until last spring also had an old collie cross who was a real treasure.  Where I live the by-laws limit the number of dogs you can have, but if I had a choice I would have a dozen!  Cats are fine,  but to me they just can't compete with dogs for companionship and affection.

I know what you mean about the laws limiting animals. That was a long time ago in an area that didn't have those sorts of laws yet. Currently I am living where I am limited to only one dog or cat and the dog must be under 25 pounds.

Only one!!!  That would be no good for me at all.  I have had dogs and cats around for so long that it would feel very strange without them. Also having pit bulls means that most of my friends and acquaintances won't  even think of visiting me at home, so I am spared all the trouble of  keeping an immaculate house, giving dinners, etc., which is fine with me.  The dogs are actually  shy and  very affectionate,  big babies really,  but the breed has a bad reputation due to some idiot humans who abuse them.

Yes, I can only have one here but I get my occasional dose of more when I visit family. One of my kids has a yard full of Pit Bulls. They are all big babies. The first time I saw them the female adult had a brood of babies. I went over there because the neighbors had called and said she and the babies had gotten loose. A perfect stranger to them and I was able to walk right up to them and get them back into their pens without any problems. The mother didn't object at all when I started grabbing the babies. It wasn't that she was not a good mother because she did watch me but knew that I wasn't there to hurt any of them.

The media has just gone nuts on them just as they did the German Shepard and the Doberman at one time. Any dog can be a bad one if they are not treated properly.

I like both cats and dogs, as to favoring one over the other, it depends on how they are raised and cared for.
 I have had my share of both, sometimes 1 of each and other times just one or the other.
I've seen both ends of how dogs are trained, meaning whether for companionship or trained for combat and used to patrol perimeters. But you know something either way they are trained they will be a loyal companion to their owners.

Now, cats, yes I like them too, but they are finicy, and when they want attention ok, but when they don't they let you know.

I'm a dog person.  I don't have a friend now but I have over the years.  I do however have a wonderful grandog named Fred who belongs to one of my daughters.

I just saw this poll and voted for dogs. I've only had one cat during my life, but I've always had a dog, and the dogs were all really good ones. I don't think that cats like me very much, and they don't seem to provide what I want and need from a pet. Cats seem to be aloof and consider humans to be necessary evils only when it's time to eat.   Grin   I have pets for companionship and affection, and it appears that dogs are the absolute best for that. Maybe I just had all great dogs and that one bad cat, but I've never had a bad dog in over 50 years. They've all been like loving members of the family, and they love us as much as we love them. We treat them extremely well, and many of them live to over 16. I have one little Heinz 57 mix right now that's 16, and I wouldn't trade him. He usually sits right by me most of every day, and we are buddies.

By the way, the one cat I had did nothing but attack me and didn't want to have anything to do with me. Maybe I'm not a cat person, but I don't want another one.

Hello Brother Joey,

It's nice to hear from you, and I must say that I share your thoughts. I have a little Heinz 57 Variety sitting next to me right now. He's close to 17 years old and has been a loving, faithful little friend for all of these years. In my case, cats don't like me for some reason and have no use for me except for a scratching post.   Wink   So, I'll opt for a good dog every time.

Hi Brother Tom. It's been a long time. Thank you for saying hi  Smiley

I've just got back home after my dog taking me out for his last walk of the day. He has 3 walks a day and the evening one is always the longest. I like to think i take him out for a walk but in all truthfulness, he takes me  Grin.... I have to agree with you about how loving and faithful dogs are. My dog is 3 years old and i have had him since he was a puppy at 10 weeks old. He's been my first dog and i never knew someone could become so attached to a pet. For me, my dog is so therapeutic and i'm sure i'm not alone in feeling like this.

Here's a photo of my dog  Smiley (Hope its ok to post this)
