The cat versus dog programme on BBC 2 it is in two parts. In the first part the cat is in the lead.
It seems that dogs are more intelligent whilst cats have better hearing and sight.
Oh and dogs have a better smell sense.
Dogs are excellent pets but they do require more 'hands on' than cats.
To me though the clincher is that dogs are noisy and sometimes dangerous. Yes yes I know about it is not the dog it is the owner syndrome. But ALL dogs are descended from wolves and it is in their DNA. It is not just large dogs that are dangerous i remember well a pack of Jack Russells killing a school boy.
I think that dogs make excellent police, guard and sniffer dogs but no no as a pet
I will now put on my bullet proof vest and addidas running shoes.....ha ha
