Reckoning Comments!

I don't want to skew the voting results at all, but did I mention that somebody posted a birthday book for Chubbs the Pug on the Internet today?


Please. Everyone knows the internet was made entirely so people could post cute cat pictures.


I love all animals and have had cats and dogs, but I'm definitely a dog person. Call me crazy, but a dog can see in to your soul.....


I like the idea of having a dog, but then I think about following them around with baggies and the novelty goes away.  Cats, on the other hand, I can leave for a few days (with food and water) a and they still tolerate me.  I actually prefer parrots.


Dogs tend to be friendlier, but cats tend to be easier to care for.
