    Little Angel Wing begonia or poinsettia?

    The dog is cute as hell. Just a little spoiled?
    (nothing wrong with that)

    Amazed they last that long.
    Preaching to the choir my friend, but be careful w/ them as they're very bad/lethal for dogs that eat them.

    Have done 105 mph to pick up a poisoned dog before..not fun or safe.

    I know you cherish your pets and they're family. Maybe she's one you know would never chew on the plant itself, never met her. Just mentioning out of caution.

    Congrats on such an adorable dog.

    No.

    Either us or them, and you're them.

    Nothing against cats, they're awesome in their own ways.
    But IMO dogs are the sh*t and cats, well, they're just cats.

    No one in my immediate family has even had a cat for 70+ years, but dozens of dogs.
    At one point, between my parents, sister, and me, we had 12

    Now I have 5 (including girlfriend's 1), my sister has 2 (down from 5), my father has 1 (down from 2).
    Dogs

    I actually like both cats and dogs, and there are no clear indications of which one is smarter. Cats are more independent than dogs, and in a survival situation they tend to do much better than dogs. Dogs have a larger dependency on humans, however that does not mean they are less intelligent than cats, as dogs are much better at interacting and utilizing humans than cats.

    Apples and oranges.

    I am also of the opinion that the worth of a being (cat or dog) and love are not so easy to measure.

    I have to go with the "pro-dog" side of this discussion. I've worked with animals most of my life and there's no question which of these 2 I prefer! Cats are great, no doubt, but they are generally so aloof and stand-offish unless they want you for warmth or to clean out their litter box.

    Dogs, on the other hand, have earned their place in this world. How many seeing eye cats have you heard of? How many rescue cats have made the news? How many felines become cops as K-9's do? How many cats have died to save their people? How many cats protect their families with their very lives?

    Nope, cats are nice, but I'll take dogs any day of the week.

    While those links have very cool stories, we all know they are the exception, not the norm. Dogs continually and repeatedly earn their keep in countless more ways than any cat. Show me a cat who goes off to war to protect our fine men and women of the military and sniff out bombs and bad guys. For starters.

    Have I now met the board's resident debunker of everything posted by a noob?

    Wow. The first world war.

    Yep, you've convinced me; I most certainly have met the token board resident who tries to debunk anything posted by a new member. Thanks for showing your colors to me right off the bat. I appreciate that.

    Relax this thread is about poking fun. A mock debate over cats and dogs.
