Seems to be the gist of it anyway.

CLICK ME

Having witnessed my old golden retriever sneakily steal a potato and then swap it for a larger one, this really does not surprise me.

Dogs are excellent.

Oh I wholeheartedly agree! But it would seem they're crafty little buggers too.

My parents still can't work out how theirs managed to thieve a box of Turkish Delight from the centre of an unreachable table top...

Our boxer is a master criminal.

Now that he's tall enough he has learnt to open our flip top bins with a simple nudge and does this whenever he thinks you aren't looking. Just the other day I was making bolognese and he had gotten into the bin and was munching on the bit of paper that's underneath the beef in the packet.

He's also learnt how to open our large American fridge/freezer by wedging his head between the two vertical handles and walking backwards. We've put a stop to this though.


He acts like a crazed idiot but secretly he's a genius.

My parents bought a boxer named Bruno not long after they were married. This thing was crazy. Every time my dad would go out to work it would go nuts and rip their home to bits.

One day my dad shouted "See you later!" to my mum and opened the front door and then closed it again. He crept to the living room and opened the door to find Bruno hanging from the curtains by his claws like a cat.

He didn't last long once my mum got pregnant!

Snotty little cunts who treat their owners with indifference or contempt.

Yes this sounds very familiar. We had to re-crate Buster to solve this. Same thing though, we'd pretend to leave and then when you went back to the kitchen he was on his back legs checking the sides to see what scraps we'd left.

This is what cats are all about:

And that's why I love cats.

My parents' cats were crafty, funny, eccentric little buggers. My brother-in-law's dog was an annoying, sycophantic little cunt that wouldn't shut the fuck up.

Sycophantic?! Hysterical. Why do certain people consider dogs pathetic and unworthy of respect for being trusting, loyal and capable of unconditional love? They are animals, not clingy sad-sack partners. A person gives them a home and food and they are grateful for it. They see a stranger and they rush to greet them. It's sweet; they are simple creatures, easy to please. Most of them are innocent and affectionate, like small children, only small children are considered adorable while dogs are derided.

I like cats as well, but they can be sulky, snooty, malicious little fuckers - traits a person would be condemned for but cats are admired for.

Anyway: why must a person always favour one species or the other? You don't hear people saying "I'm a hamster person but my boyfriend is a cockatoo kinda guy." It's so odd and unnecessary - they both have their merits.

Well, I wasn't being entirely serious there. I have respect and admiration for dogs who enhance people's lives, guide dogs for the blind and disabled and so forth. And I know that a lot of the things that dogs get criticised for can be explained by the various short-comings of their owners. I do prefer cats and just wanted to balance out the whole "cats are evil" and "kill all cats" sentiment that tends to pop up in these threads and is no less unwarranted.

I'm with DC on this one in a way. I'm a cat and dog lover surrounded by cat haters which can be very frustrating at times. I even know people who go out of their way to inflict injury to random cats which disgusts me wholeheartedly (I used to own a cat we picked up from a vet who had his jaw broken from a kick by his previous owner, so cat's being purposefully injured by people is a touchy subject for me). Anyway, I own two mischievous labradors who I love to pieces but even I will claim they can be complete fuckers at times
