All pets CAN be wonderful. I love my dog and two cats but I've had various scratches from my cats and a fractured foot from my 90 pound dog jumping on me too many times. They're still the light of my life.

My dog was a very troubled puppy (English mastiff, so they're often bad puppies) however as a dog she is the gentlest dog I've ever met. At 200 pounds she doesn't bark unless we are playing with her toys with her, and even when we get deer in our yard (like the other dogs) she doesn't bark. Now she is only a year old and still a puppy so she doesn't know her own size and has made people fall, but she is super sweet compared to my cats. My brothers had 3 cats growing up, I've been scratched/bit b

I'll be an advocate for cats. We adopted my cat and I wouldn't have chosen anything over him. He cuddles, plays, and can even fetch better than our dogs. I raised him well and he is a good cat. Just like with dogs, it depends on how they are raised. Teaching a cat not to scratch someone is like teaching a puppy that biting someone isn't okay. My cat has only scratched me when we were playing. Personally, I've had a much better relationship with my cat than my parents' dogs, who are spoiled and w

The cats were taught not to scratch #44, and it was only me they did it to. After talking to a vet they figured it was because since the cats had been around before me, and I was only a toddler they was jealous of all the attention I was getting. So even though they had been taught not to scratch they still did it.

54- the entire last part of your comment confused me. Anyway, cats are animals. Like dogs. You can teach a dog not to bite but they still may. Does that mean all dogs the terrible? Of course not. Dogs are great. Same thing with cats. I've been scratched by a neighbor's cat before. I don't think all cats are terrible.

You have two options. Either get the dog and show her how sweet they can be, or still get the dog and use it as an excuse to keep crazy cat lady away from you when you don't want her around. Either way, don't let it discourage you, OP. Dogs are man's best friend for a reason.

pffffft, born evil? dogs have the purest souls of all. I enjoy cats but cat people are insane. definitely don't listen to her, adding a dog to your life will bring you much happiness.

my dog purposely took a shit right between my legs while I was sleeping because I scolded her the day before when I stepped in her poop. I rolled right in it. dogs can be assholes too.

haha #23 that's a smart dog you have there. my dog could be dickish too when she felt like it but I think it's a small price to pay for the unconditional love dogs give you. much more than cats anyway.

I'm going to guess 23, that your dog is still a puppy? It doesn't excuse the behaviour but my dog did something like that to me when she was a puppy but she stopped after a while, and she was inbred, so it'll probably work out for you
