OK. Everyone pretty much knows by now that I have been on the hunt for, and have now purchased a dog. And that I am heading to Ohio this upcoming weekend to pick him up. With all of this shuffling around through emails and phone calls in finding the dog I want, I realize I have become that person.
A Dog Person.
I have always been a Cat Person. Because cat’s are cool. They have that fantastic attitude where no matter what, they remain calm and collected at all times. The Internet, as a whole, knows this. This is why cats are everywhere on the net. I am pretty sure everyone has seen one or two LOL Cats at some point.
and Stuff on My Cat is equally impressive.
I am a huge fan, myself, of Maru. If you have never seen a Maru video, you are not a true cat lover.
A Cat Person can usually recognize another Cat Person. On the whole, they are not generally sports fans but tend to favor a good, solid afternoon at a museum. They also tend to lean more toward jazz or classical music as opposed to heavy metal or country. A Cat Person is often like a cat themselves: full of attitude and try, above all, to remain cool.
I never minded identifying as a Cat Person.
So I have no idea where this Dog Person thing came in. Sometime last summer I just started really looking at dogs in a whole new way. As attitude heavy cats are—and as much as I love that part of them—the opposition of the floppy, silly and foolish dumbass dog has suddenly become endearing. And then I saw this:
I mean c’mon. How can anyone not fall in love with this? The goofiness this dog pulls off just by being itself is something a cat would never do. And if it did, accidentally get into this situation, it would not have looked around for a way out. It would have acted as if it actually belonged there.
Cats have power.
And so do dogs. But in a different way. Because every single thing they do is damn funny.
So I have come to the conclusion that for me, age has a lot to do with it. I have become a Dog Person because at this point in my life, I want something to keep me laughing. Like on a regular basis. But I know there are a lot of you that would identify as a Dog Person that has nothing to do with my reasons. Or maybe you identify as a Cat Person. So my question: which one? Why?
