I realized the matter had not yet been debated about, neither had it been actually posted as a thread, so my searches proved. I know this debate can get out of hand, but if we keep things nice and calm, then hopefully we can get some good answers out of this. Personally, for me, dogs win. And no, that's not just because I'm a dog owner. When debating about this kind of things, there are many factors to take into account. There's maintenance, appearance, productivity, and so on. Maintenance seems to win over a couple of gents and ladies, because they'd rather not have to at occassion walk dogs, scoop up their waste in the garden, and be restricted from going out anywhere for dangerously long times. As with cats, they can easily survive for a good weekend, perhaps even longer, due to the different habits the two animals develop. Appearance is what I tend to be all about, really. The fact is, whilst cats are pretty cute, especially the expensive Persians that I have two of, they just can't beat dogs. Whether their hairs are smooth and gray, faces screwed up into an adorable puff, or have an unresistable tail, they just can't beat dogs. Dogs are known for their ridiculously large eyes, and that triggers a sensor which is called 'The Cute Sensor'. No, seriously. Though dogs aren't particularly all cute, that can depend between each breed, when they are, you can't get enough of those puppy dog faces. And the last thing I'm going to talk about is productivity. Certain dog breeds are a lot calmer than others, and like to nap from time to time. Cats, however, seem to do this all the time. They just lay themselves around on sofas, carpets, floorboards, you name it. Dogs, on the other hand, can get very playful and are fun to have a laugh with. Most cats can't actually go outside, and when they do, you can't exactly play with them. Going back to dogs, you can. Playing catch seems to be a favourite, as well as just running around like crazy chickens. Anyway, those are my beliefs and thoughts on it, so there we go. Anything you guys'd like to add on?
