I am more of a dog person myself. I worry that cats will knock my artwork off the shelves, plus I like how dogs seem a bit more adoring 😚

Aurian- you said your new doggie is a whippet mix, right?  From what I understand, sight hounds like greyhounds, Italian greyhounds, whippets, Afghan hounds, salukis generally have more catlike temperaments than most other dogs.  That's why they're often categorized low in doggie intelligence scales because they're not as trainable to learn and obey commands.  

One of the guys in the band I played in has an Italian greyhound and she definitely had some catlike tendencies.  She likes to leap up to the top of the couch, sunbathe, hates getting wet, not the most obedient because she thinks she knows better than you...

He does seem generally eager to please though, will do commands for food and attention. The lab side taking over? I think the foster just didn't seem to differentiate from her cats and let him up on the furniture.

I overdosed on pink when I was a kid to the point I loathed it by the time I was a teen.

Haps - adoption attempt number two for a dog. We had to return the first because he was so fear aggressive towards people and I am in a busy complex here. 3 months of training didn't help much and he was regressing as the summer came closer and more people, kids and dogs were out and about... :(

So new doggie. Good start, great temperament but the foster treated him like a cat...! I am trying to teach him to stay off the counters (!) and tables! He is very sweet and loves to snuggle up. He is almost one so still a big puppy :)

Interesting timing, I am actually going to be picking up the rescue I am adopting later today. He is a lab - whippet mix so he looks like a miniature skinny lab. Supposed to be everything we want in a dog so cautiously excited.

Hubby and I bought and moved to this condo especially because it was so dog friendly and our old place as no pets allowed period (technically goldfish were excluded even). We did try another rescue earlier in the year but it did not work out because as lovely as he was inside, he was too fear aggressive and frightened the other residents. We even had to walk him leashed and muzzled at all times and he would still bark and lunge. It was heartbreaking because we tried with a trainer for a month on this issue and weren't seeing enough improvement, while the place just got busier and busier with more people enjoying the outdoors in the summer. We took him back to his rescue with regrets.

This one isn't supposed to be fearful or aggressive, so wish me luck please!

Cherry Coke is delicious! Why don't they sell it in Canada?? A local store brought a shipment in last summer for some reason and they sold out before they even finished stocking the display.

No buttons? No way. I hate trying to game on iOS for just this reason. I want to feel the button and know I am pressing it instead of not responding because my thumb is slightly off centre.

My problem is I don't PC game at all. I am at a PC all day at work. Why do I wanted to be at a desk at home too? Portable and even console means more relaxing :)
