Interesting. I've never really understood how a person could 'love' dogs and 'hate' cats or vice versa. If one loves animals, does it really matter. I have a friend that I've known for 36 years, when she was 11 she got a horse, 20 years later when that horse died of old age (he was 25) she was as devastated as she would have been if were any member of her family. And I felt for her as if he'd been a member of the family. We had had some great times over the years with that fella and he was an icon in the barn. So, really, does it matter "who's better"? Dog, cat, horse, rabbit, iguana, turtle….as long as they are loved and taken care of.
