If Your Dog Wasn't a Dog, He'd Be a...

If Your Dog Wasn't a Dog, He'd Be a...

When I brought my puppy home on the Metro North, a man next to me on the train suggested I name him "Cat." Little (yet unnamed) North pawed and batted at the crate doors like a little kitty . . . and, to this day, he has mastered the sneak-up-and-pounce technique on his squeakers. Yeah, so the toys aren't alive or moving – perhaps he's not the brightest cat in the bunch – but I find him often catlike nonetheless.

Awwww. After watching this video of the adorable Lily, all I could recall were her rabbit like leaps and bounds. She hop hopped her way through the snowbanks, and I think she looked like a little bunny-in-training. Whether you share your home with a dog or a cat, which animal do you think your pet acts like the most?

My dog licks her paws and runs them over her ears just like a cat ...and if she does it long enough she coughs up a hairball

People already have doubts that Tulip is realy a dog... she could pass for many creatures (a bunny, koala, wombat, Dad calls even her Ewok...)but she seems to remind me most of another girl of all things. She has such a little diva kind of personality, mabey she is a mini-werewolf! lol

My beagle Baylee thinks she's a frog, at times. She lays down with her legs splayed out like a frog. She uses her paws a lot too, like a cat would. It was very easy to teach her to shake hands!

I'm convinced my dog is a reincarnated 13 year old girl on her period.

My Emma Katt thought she was a dog. I'd bounce a ball down our 15 step entryway and she would race after it, grab it in her little mouth, and run back up the stairs where she would drop the ball in my hand. She didn't want to stop! And she loved dogs....a regular kissing bandit! :)

My cat acts like an old lady. She complains (with meows) and loafs around the apartment like a housewife in a housecoat and curlers, looking for her cigs so she can watch her programs on TV.

My dog thinks he's a human. He sleeps on his back, gets snobby and gives us dirty looks, and even kind of talks sometimes. When he really wants to go out in the mornings and his parents (my bf and I) are sleeping in, he'll let out a little howl that sounds like "Helll-oooo???"

My lab mix thinks he's a lap dog and he plays with his tennis ball like a cat. He bats at it with his feet just like a cat would. The way he trots around reminds me of a horse.

My cats are very dog-like. They come when called, obey, play fetch, follow me around my house, ALWAYS have to be in my lap or touching me in some way, and are very people-loving. There is also a little human in them! :)

He would be a vampire bat or a pitbull. :) He's a chihuahua with a deep blue coat, pale blue eyes, and a permanent underbite. His body structure really throws people off because he's built like a pitbull. No kidding, he's like ten pounds of pure muscle. -And he has quite the ego to match.

My dog loves to sleep for hours in the sun, getting up occasionally to move into a warmer spot. And he'll spend several minutes cleaning his entire body and rubbing his face with his paws. Plus, he loves to curl up on the couch with (and on) us -- even though he's a 50 lb standard poodle! Not to mention the fact that he absolutely hates swimming, and won't go in the water past his knees. He definitely thinks that he's a cat (or maybe a person :P)!

B-Bop I think was a cat in another life!! He washes his face like a cat! And pounces on toys! But he's also an INSANE jumper. So I think he's part kangaroo too!
