I have also noticed that in my dog clients, they always make a point of telling 
me how much they dislike cats.

Especially the clients w/ purebreds.

I just bite my tongue, of course.

The cat clients seem to be more compassionate about ALL animals.

And hey, I can bite my tongue w/ a "dog lover" as long as they are forking over 
good money to me to care for their dogs, especially when a good chunk of that 
money helps w/ my cat programs........  :)

I always tell my cats what a whore their mother is, espeically when I do 
"overnights" for a dog client.

I tell them I have to "sleep w/ dogs" to keep them in the comfortable style 
they are accustoomed to.

Little money sponges, they are...............  :)

  Susan,

   

  You've said it exactly. I think that dog people like the attention and 
companionship. I love dogs as well as cats, but cats give us more freedom 
(well, not with the checkbook), plus we're just cat-people. Like Caroline 
pointed out, there are many many dog people, but most people I meet don't like 
cats at all. Why? I haven't figured that one out. Stereotypes? Misconceptions? 
Idiocy? Not really sure.

   

  The pit bull abuses reminds me of The Dog Whisperer on Discovery or TLC or 
whatever. Cesar Millan is so good at showing that most dogs can be 
rehabilitated, but in most instances it's the humans that need the 
rehabilitation, not the dogs. The plight of pit bulls in our country is very 
sad and depressing. They are certainly the most misunderstood and mistreated of 
dogs (up there with racing dogs). Plus many people mistake other breeds for pit 
bulls, not even understanding what a pit bull actually is-they just equate them 
with any tough, muscular dog with a stocky stature. 

   

  Enough ranting-I'm done with dogs for today. It's a happy day-our central air 
should be fixed today after being broken for 3 weeks in 90-degree weather! The 
babies will be so happy! I'll be happy to play with them again, and get back to 
normal! But living without air conditioning helped us see how truly spoiled we 
are, and how much we take for granted. 

   

  Melissa
