If you had to choose a pet, or have one already, do you prefer dogs or cats? I have to go with cats, 'cause I'm a LOW maintenance kind o' guy. Cats pretty much keep to themselves a lot. I think dogs require way, way too much attention. But, just my opinion.:dolphins:

I like big lumping lazy dogs that require as much attention as cats.

Like a St.Bernard, I used to have one of those, she'd literally sleep 80% of the day.

Dogs...they are usually more affectionate...they come to you when called. Yeah, they are a little more maintenance but they are worth it. I have had a few nice cats too, but I still like dogs a little more.

My sister-in-law has a Golden Retriever named Macy. I was dogsitting her the past two weeks. What a great dog. I played fetch the tennis ball with her for hours and took her to the park and to the reservoir to swim. They have great personalities. I might get me a Golden as my dog passed away in November. :(

Cats. Dogs make too much noise, and are much harder to take care of.

Roman, just a suggestion, but you could go to your local animal shelter and tell them you're interested in adopting a golden mix if one comes in. (I used to volunteer at a Humane Society.) While there are never any guarantees, it has been my experience that dogs with a mix live healthier, longer lives. I had a Golden once and she's been gone for seven years. She battled skin problems and finally died from cancer at age nine. I still miss her.

~~HolliExcellent suggestion! I'm a dog lover! Had two weiner dogs (ex-wife has custody) they were so cool and so mean at the same time. They knocked a grown off his bicycle (okay he fell off trying to escape) it was hilarious. When he was on the ground they just ran circles around him barking up a storm.

Yeah...we can't have a dog right now, but we do have cats, and I wouldn't want to choose between having one or the other. Dogs are more companiable, cats are cuddlier and much crazier.

They both have their charms. :D

I've said this once before.

the pet rock is the best pet, hands down. No clean up, low maintence, hardly ever eats. And no explaining to Junior why his pet rock is now in heaven with Jesus.

I'm on the fence.

I used to be dog only but then I rescued this one kitten and he's become my fav. pet.

Like you said, Cats are affectionate but don't need it 24/7 like dogs so they are much lower maintenance.

Still I like both so I can't go either way.

My wife is looney and prefers mini pot bellied pigs over either.
We have 2.
All jokes aside, surprisingly, they are great pets.
Very friendly, intelligent, and actually a cleaner pet than dogs or cats because they don't shed but once a year. So I have to give them credit, although I would'nt own one if it wasn't for her.

I have had both, and they both have their advantages.
But for me, no other pet is as special as a rat.

They are loyal friends to the end, but they just need too much attention. You can go off for the weekend, and leave a big bowl of food for a dog, and it will gorge itself to finish it. You do the same for a cat, it eats till it's full, saves the rest for later, and it uses a litter box. Very self sufficient. I mean, what's better than that?:dolphins:

Thanks Holli:
I am moving into a townhome on Sunday and it looks like you cannot have any dogs over 25 pounds so I might have to go for a smaller sized dog. My brother was going to get a Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever/Poodle Mix) but now I think they are getting a Schnoodle (Schnauzer/poodle). I know some mixed breeds can add to the health and longevity of a dog. It is so nice coming home and having a dog there who is always happy to see you. Sorry to hear your Golden passed away. One of the few times I really cried in my life was when I lost my dog.
