We are talking about having the pets that we can play the freebie/tricks with them.

Winks surreptitiously to the audience...

Having them for lunch, more like. Shame on you!

 

I guess dogs are better ? at least they listen to you most of the time.

Well since I am highly allergic to cats and my social life revolves around doing agility with my dogs, this is a pretty simple question for me.

Dogs for sure. Not talking about miniature dogs tho.I like cats but wouldn't want to own one.

 

I just feel as if I have a special connection with my dog. He's happy when he see's me and likes to say hello (also likes following me down the driveway to say goodbye), keeps by my side everywhere I go, listens to me, gives me hugs when I'm upset and so on. Just something about a dog that I don't think I'd get from a cat.

You mean, like, how I say my dog is sooooooooo smart, he knows when i've over slept and wakes me up for work, yet the smart goes away, once I try to show him off in front of people and he starts his tail chasing (quite vigorously too  :rofl:  ).

My cat does all of that. Greets me at the door - and even gets upset if I take extra time to cover my car. Keeps me company. Sleeps in my bed (often on my chest). Cheers me up when I'm down.

We had a dog like that when I was young...  the dog can eat/chew about everything..   what a mess the dog made... we came home from out for a ride to this mess he made.. we were like DAMN! 

 

We couldn't take it anymore and got rid of it to someone else.

 

We had yellow lab that she was smart and listen to what we say such as commands..

 

My brother, who lives in other side of town, has 3 Australian cattle dogs. Very smart and trainable dogs.

Yup he's eveyones pal, but he chases anything that moves(cats, deer, rabbits) if he takes off, the only way to get him back is to turn and run the opposite way :D

i feel really bad looking at this chained dog.   

any dog behavious expert will tell you that this dog is acting submissive!

and the "smile" is a way for it to show complete submissiveness!!!   

sometimes they do it to get "rewards" such is getting petted or rubbed.

but in this case, the effort put to make the smile and the chain, makes me think this dog is acting out of fear.

 

knowing this, i pretty much hate looking at the pictures of "smiling" dogs!

Got to be honest, I didn't notice the chain until you mentioned it. :(

 

To make up for my mistake, here's a picture of an actual happy dog:

Take a look at the background... that dog could be at the warehouse or shop... that the dog owner took the dog to work since no one watch the dog...  that's the reason the owner put the dog on chain so the dog won't wander off. That they have garage doors open...
