What? You had them sit on the ottoman rather than in your chair? The shame of it. ;)

(And,
Nice pic, and suggestion to trade up). ;D

Pugs' main (only?) drawback is that they shed. A lot. Since the chair is a dark color and the pug is a light color, it was better to keep him on the beige blanket which could be washed weekly. That ottoman is overstuffed; don't worry, no luxury denied.

Excuses, excuses. I believe you are dealing with an extreme case of rationalization (just kidding of course). ;D

My (now senior) boxer, from 6 years ago. Had cats growing up, but haven't wanted one as an adult.

Though a cat person, I do love other people’s dogs.
Nice pics, Pug. My aunt in Albuquerque always had pugs when I was a kid.

I do love both, but cats are just higher. Plus, they fit in much better with my life style. I had one or two dogs from 1982 continuously through 2005. Since then I've been dog starved. Oftentimes when I'm driving and seeing someone walking their dog I want to pull over and ask them if I can pet their dog.

I grew up with one that my family adopted when I was about 5 and who passed away when i was in college.
I wish I had something better than blurry printed photos of her to share here, but imagine a mutt with mostly golden retriever features, but less than 2/3 the size of an adult golden.

She was a sweetheart. The perfect family companion to keep cats and kids from destroying each other. (Cat vs cat and kid vs kid, that is, never kid vs cat).

People with cats are always trying to convince me that they are 'just like dogs'. Why do you need to prove that if they are 'higher'. Cats are great, but they are not even close to the level of dogs. But I do agree they are less work. To each his own.

I have never tried to convince anyone that cats are "just like dogs". They are TOTALLY different creatures (although I have stated that my older cat was "just like a dog" in the way he always greeted me at the door. But that was the extent of it.) I was not trying to prove that cats are higher for everyone. They are, though, for me.

I do, though, have an extreme love for dogs. Just not as high as I do for cats.

I loved when my boss's dog (rottweiler) was still alive and I got to have the dog for a week at a time when my boss and his family went on vacation.

I'd have him with me all the time - home, car, office, softball games.

In bed, he'd sleep on one side of me while my cat slept on the other side of me. He had no issues with my cat. But he was relentless with my gerbils. After a while I'd just put them into my other bedroom with the door shut before bringing him into the house so that he no longer knew that they even existed.

I'll later dig our a picture or two of him at one of my softball games, showing him adopting the family of one of my teammates, and put it here.

He was a beautiful wonderful dog with a great personality.

While I do love all dogs, my dog favorites are the big ones - like him and German Shepherds.
