Interesting.

Although I am more of a cat person, I have also had some wonderful dogs in my life as well. Since I love them both perhaps I am bipetual.

Dee-O-Gee (DOG)

I love my kitties and play/interact with them just as much as my canines and is not any different paying attention to them as I do with my tropical fish or the wild Orioles, Cardinals or Hummingbirds either.

Just a part of my everyday being that brings me great joy.

Yep, another Bi-petual here too. Good coinage on that word Mikischo.

I've read another horoscope type definition. Dog people are control freaks, like to be in charge, have to have their own way, need to be the boss.

Cat people allow others to do their own thing, appreciate diversity, work well alone or in groups.

You can tell those relate to trainability of the animal and were geared to the human work world. Elements of truth in all I think.

I have to disagree with this. I see a lot of dog owners that have no control over their own dogs. It is hard to tell who is walking whom sometime.

I always had dogs and cats as well until I was not allowed to have a dog in this condo. I really miss running with a dog. I think I would own a zoo if I could though. I wonder what that says about me?
