Do you own a dog or a cat?
Currently, I do not own either a cat or a dog, because I do not have enough time to take care of a pet with my business and small children. However, I used to have a small American cocker spanial named Jessica, she was awesome, and I plan to buy a dog in the coming years.

Which do you like more, dogs or cats?
I love both, but if I had to choose, I would go with dogs for two simple reasons. I owned dogs and not cats growing up, as I just mentioned, and I’m a bit allergic to cat fur. Also, people do say that dogs have masters and cats have slaves, meaning that dogs tend to reciprocate the love they receive more than cats.

Where do you usually see dogs? How about cats?
I often see people walking their dogs on the street near my home, or in the park where I took my morning walk. Fortunately, there are virtually no stray dogs in Victoria but there are some alley cats that I come across every now and again when I’m out early in the morning.
