As you can guess from my avatar, I am a dog person. I have also had cats, but prefer dogs (that doesn't mean I don't love my new little grand-kittens).

I like Golden Retrievers best. When we were in the market for a dog seven years ago, I did all sorts of research to see what breed would suit us. Golden Retriever is what I came up with. I like several of the other breeds, but have absolutely fallen for Goldens. I may one day have to get a Golden Doodle; A standard poodle mixed with a Golden Retriever. I think that would be a good match for us too. :)

Definitely a cat man. When I bought my own house, I inherited a siamese male from a friend shortly thereafter who was desperate, even thinking about giving it to the humane society. His GF was allergic to cats, so it had to go... Ain't love grand? I was fresh out of love, so to speak, and said I have a big house and room enough. Then another kitten wandered in through the back garden gate and wouldn't leave. Since then I have had/ Have mostly 2 cats at a time.

Interestingly, when DxW bought her house, she bought her first dog too. She never had pets growing up. Luckily my two have always gotten along well with her dog(s) although it took awhile to acclimate them when she got a new puppy. But they play together well now. well, I guess love is grand.

I'm a cat person. I like dogs, but I like cats more. I find dogs too excitable. "Oh I'm so glad you're home!" bounce, bounce, bounce. "I just took out the garbage. I was only gone two minutes." bounce, bounce.

While I don't hate cats or anything, until I see one that can catch a frisbee, I will stick with pups.

I LOVE Maine Coon Cats though, Big ole cats, with personality. One of my Chefs breeds Savannahs, and they are pretty cool cats too, though when they get "of age", you have to feed them steak, and chicken. . . no meow mix for those fellas.

Tatt: Maine Coone Cats

Maine Coone and British Shorthair are my favorites for same reasons ... They are rough and tough ...

We have a dear friend in Florida who has 2 Maine Coones, and they are quite unique.

Thanks for contribution.

Have nice Sunday,
Margaux.

marge, i'm curious. why did you phrase the question so gender biased?

it might be better asked as dog or cat person.
