We have all heard the cliche, “A dog is a man’s best friend.” In our culture, dogs are revered for their loyalty, their companionship, and, sometimes, their obedience. Did you know that Americans spend over $40 billion a year just on dog food? Dogs are big industry. I admit that I am a dog person. We have two dogs, Toby and Bevo. Toby is a retriever shepherd mix. Bevo is a German Shepherd. These dogs are great with the kids and wonderful family pets. Recently, because our house wasn’t hectic enough, we, meaning Lisa and Megan, adopted a little orange and white kitten. The cat’s name is Cowpoke. Bevo the dog and Cowpoke the cat. He who has ears to hear, let him hear where our allegiances lie in the Big-12. Anyway, Poke is a feisty cat and gets along well with the dogs. They wrestle and fight and such. Now I am not a real big cat person, but I have to admit they are much cleaner than dogs. In fact, dogs can be downright disgusting. The biggest problem we have had with the addition of this cat is keeping the dogs out of the litterbox. Those dumb dogs will come running up to you with cat litter hanging off their nose and chin. It is disgusting. While our culture is infatuated with dogs, I don’t care how much you groom them, dress them up, train them, or parade them about a ring, they are still dirty, gross animals.
