Hi all,
Let's start an interesting discussion on which is your favorite pet. Do specify the reason also. Mine is cat. It is just because they are very cute.

in my opinion it is hard to imagine anything more loyal and steadfast than a good dog...
I have had dogs who put their life on the line to get proddy cows off of me...

I like horses too but have had horses leave me under the same circumstances where dogs came charging in...

had a cow knock a big horse out from under me one time and when he got up he left me there and high tailed it before I could get back on.

Cows/ Dogs

My cows are all pets. The environment they came from and the environment here has made them pets. The ones I have retained are just like a dog except they are too big to ride in the truck and come in the house. They behave like pets. Just like a dog craves grooming, so do my cows.

To have pets the size of a cow is why I find them fascinating.

But for 24/7, a dog is my favorite.

The goldfish in my water troughs. No maintenance, no feed bill, no vet bill, no litter box to clean.

Cats And Dogs
A Dog is all I have right now. Love him so much he's a house dog, work dog, play in the yard buddy, shotgun rider, and basically a go where ever I go Buddy. My first dog that fit that whole criteria.
Now a cat there is nothing sweeter than that roaring purr and that soft rubbing feel around your ankle, until of course when it trips you.

Good one, Mike. Not just limited to cats. My Corgi, year old. Has tripped me a couple times. Can be a hazard!

I have a hard time thinking of goldfish as a pet.
My dogs want to be where I am....If I am walking the fields they are scouting ahead.
If I am at the barn they are either helping me or lying nearby in the shade.
If I am in the house they are in the house.
they guard the house and family from all trespassers...human or animal...
they are a lot of company to me.
and unlike the women I work or live with, they seldom ever tell me I am wrong...

For me it's cows. I do like cats, but the yotes and owls keep eating them. Some cows are just more special than others, just like some dogs are better than others. I have a bred heifer "Yotta" who is an absolute doll.. loves to just hang out with you and enjoys company.. .it's in the bloodlines though, her great grandma was my first pet cow, and all of them inbetween were all outstanding as well

A couple of dogs are the only pets here. Everything else makes money or they're gone.

My goldfish work for their keep. They eat the algae and mosquito larvae in my water troughs.
