I have a poll for all of you my dear blogger friends:
When it comes to pets, are you ...
-crazy for cats?
-dedicated to dogs?
I was never real fond of cats before Suneo came to my life. I just love dogs even though I have been attacked twice by someone else's dogs. And no, I didn’t do anything to provoke the dogs. In fact I helped my colleagues who were so terrified with the Doberman Pinscher belonged to my former boss. Luckily, the damage those dogs did was only ripping apart the back of my clothing because I put my face downward really quickly which saved me. That incident left a scar on my right hand and some bruises on my waist (they knocked me up but didn't have a chance to bite as I got help immediately). It was a terrifying experience but I didn't blame the dogs. I blamed the owner for not latching their gate. But I have to admit after the attack I feel uncomfortable each time I bumped into large dogs on the street/in someone else's house. Dobbermann, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Boxer (dog) are to name a few. I don't mind with gentler breed like Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever and the small breed like my late dog, Fatso.
How did dogs resemble me? Well, one best trait that I like from dogs is they can't be dishonest - they either like you or dislike you and that's it. They are simple in their emotions, more social to humans and I can take them out for a walk. What's not to like? When I first met Fatso I just felt clicked with him. The best description and maybe this sums it up nicely was, we really liked each other, despite our differences. He really liked to get on my nerves at times and I sure liked to push his buttons when I could. Well, I think we really calmed each other down when things got tough.
Even with all this talk about dogs I really do like cats but have not had much contact with them since Fatso disliked the felines. I find that when people don't have or they don't like cats because dogs are more like people while cats do what they want, not what you want. Cats are also perceived to be sneaky, conniving and cunning. Nice thing about cats though is they are pretty self reliant. They can take care of themselves more so than dogs. I can say they have different qualities in each that I really like. With Fatso, I love that I could take him to places for a walk, Suneo doesn't like that much. Fatso was playful, cute, affectionate and loyal. Suneo is smart, has a wonderful personality and he really is a sweet little creature! And he likes to wag his tail just like Fatso when he gets excited!
