Dogs are better...

The other day Stephanie and I were talking about what we'd name animals that we may or may not get in the future. We have different visions about our pet situation; I want a dog and she wants a cat. We figured we'd solve this by getting one of each. Now don't get me wrong, I like cats. They're fun! But I'd rather get a puppy.

Here's my deal. Cat's are very independent, they take care of themselves. You can put a cat in a house, put their food out, give them some clean kitty liter (or even just sand) and not worry about them for days. Even if you do worry about them, they only care about you when it is time for feeding. Stephanie's cat, Chocolate is a great example of this. She hates me! When I walk into a room, she hisses, growls, and even tries to scratch me, but when I am eating meat she is my best friend. I have no stomach for this type of pet.

Robert Di Nero in Meet the Parents is right when he describes dogs. They need you, they are happy to see you, and when you are angry at them their tail goes between their legs to...well if you have seen the movie you know what he says next. Dogs cannot live without you. You are their life! When I am spending time to feed an animal, I want to have the satisfaction of knowing that it actually cares about me-this will never happen with a cat.

Back to my first sentence, we were talking about pet names. I think it's absolutely hilarious to give titles (i.e. Sir, Senator, Coach, etc.). As we were talking about what to name our pets, we decided on naming the dog, Colonel Hank Greenberg and the cat Coach Bobby Knight.

you're right. dogs are better...cats suck. no offense to chocolate. cats are like stuck up, dogs aren't prideful, they will run to the door when you come home. you don't see many cats doing that. i like your thinkin. :)

Michelle and i are definitely dog types....our beagle is named "Zambrano," and I am very thankful I didn't name him "Sampson."

The one major problem is when we are out of town on vacation, mission trips, youth trips, etc we have to get a dog-sitter, which gets old after a while.

We now think a cat would be okay because they are less of a hassle...but then what's the point.

Phil,
I appreciate your insights! This is the problem with a cat, why pay good money to support an animal who really doesn't need ya.

Missed ya at Ichthus this year!
