I am definitely a dog person. My wife and I have 2 Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. They are the most loyal animals I have ever seen. They totally appreciate every minute we spend with them, and all they really care about is being in the same room as us.
Cats on the other....well I think that they would make a good meal for a burm or retic....just kidding....please don't get upset with me I'm just kidding around. I grew up with cats and loved them to, but definitely not the same as dogs.
