Patrick took a moment from the ThighMaster® to explain, “I took Zoey to the Charleston Dog Show this morning, and so I had dogs on the brain for this week’s set of questions.”
“But first, it was Otowi of "Otowi" who was first to play last week's edition. Congratulations!”
Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal in the comment section to this entry on Patrick's Weekender so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!
1. Which makes a better pet: a dog or a cat, and why?
A dog as it is more easily trained, more tractable, has a greater will to please and is more devoted to it's trainer than a cat. Cats have their place; I prefer fricassee myself.
2. A close friend works with an animal rescue organization and tells you that they are desperate for a foster home for a good dog that there is no room for, and that it will be put down unless you can foster it for one week. Would you take the dog in?
So long as it can co-exist with the rest of the menagerie with a minimum of spilled blood.
3. If you could own any pet depicted as a character on a television show, which one would you choose?
Rin-tin-tin, as most of you will not have ever heard of Braveheart.
4. Take the quiz: What Common Dog Breed Are You?
5. If you had the option to reverse places with your pet for a day or have your pet suddenly be able to talk like a human for a day, which would you choose and why?
My dog may be sweet and loveable, but she isn't the brightest bulb in the pack, so the thought of her yammering at me all day lacks much in appeal. Instead, the first option, swapping places, would be the best course of action. Although, I just might be heart broken with her ability to smell.
6. You find you are being relocated to a ritzy neighborhood that has every amenity you would ever want except for one thing: no pets allowed. If you could live there rent/mortgage-free for three years, would you give up a pet to take advantage of the offer?
No, probably not. But not for any real reason to do with the issue of a pet. More, it would be an issue of forced relocation. Ain't gonna happen, baby. Not in this lifetime. I goes where
I my wife wants to go, dig?
