Are you a dog or a cat person?
People usually have a strong preference for one or the other. I’m basically a dog person.
I don’t even really like cats but my daughter had a cat when she was seven or eight that stayed with me long after my daughter left home to strike out on her own. And I did love that cat!
Right now, I have a Cardigan Welsh Corgi who is about 4 years old and is my best friend. I know it’s weird to say that but it’s how I feel. He’s a big, sappy, always loving, always funny little guy who is constantly by my side and loves me no matter what.
The relationships that we have with our pets is complex and fascinating. Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. “Why We Love Cats and Dogs?” will air again on KSPS. It’s a program that will help you understand exactly what draws us to cats or dogs. Animal behaviorists, psychologists, trainers and owners all have an opinion and share it on this show. It’s billed as “funny, touching and provocative” so I’m excited to watch it.
