Dogs are so much better than cats.

I don't get how people can put a poop box in their kitchen, watch the cat bury one, let it walk on their couch or pillow and then use it.

Sure, you have to clean up after your dog but it's outside. They both shed, so that's a toss-up but it seems dogs just have so much love to give back.

And, now that my kids are all gone, I'm thankful for my canine buddies.
