Not ´Just A´ Dog - first chapter
892 days ago
If you don’t like dogs, you’d probably say: ‘It’s just a dog!’ But dogs are family, just like a cat (if you’re a cat person.) Dogs and cats have lots in common, but I have some reasons why dogs may be better than cats. Like their fur,going to the bathroom, destruction, your health, and how dogs help the community!
Cats and dogs are quite different with their furs and hairs. For instance, cats cough hairballs. They’re slimy, so who’d want to pick it up? And cats shed like mad, especially the fluffy ones! And don’t forget about the litter boxes!
Dogs only go to the bathroom a few times a day, Cat people think that you have to take them out fifty times a day! Wrong! Though cats don’t go outside to use the restroom, you have to clean their smelly litter boxes! Why do you think the word, litter is in the name? Obviously because it’s gross! Maybe having a dog isn’t that bad! And the destruction? Don’t even get me started!
Dogs just chew, they really don’t ruin anything. Cats though, they have claws and teeth! They can rip up your 1979 high-class sofa! They can bite off a piece of your chair! They can even break your lamp! Dogs can’t even get onto a nightstand, so they can’t break your lamp. They can’t leave rips on your 1979 high-class sofa, it’s like a rock, so they can’t chew it. Small dogs cannot bite hard enough to rip and chew your chairs, and big dogs would have to work just as hard as cats, and the dog would probably give up quickly. Cats are determined animals you know!
“There are a lot of things cats will jump up on that dogs won’t. The cat I had for a month would not get off my computer keyboard. Dogs won’t do that. I’ve also seen cats up on kitchen counters. Your dog also won’t climb a tree,” (draganescu, 2010).
If you think about it, your average dog wouldn’t do any of these things! Unless they think they’re a cat who’s actually a dog… But even if they think that, they’d struggle to get onto a counter with their weight, and their slippery paws.
Professionals, like doctors say something like this, “Owning pets is associated with reducing your risk of heart disease, and there are a variety of reasons that may be at work that influence this relationship. It may be that healthier people are more likely to be pet owners or that people with dogs tend to exercise more. Pets also play a role in providing social support to their owners, which is an important factor in helping you stick with a new habit or adopting a new healthy behavior,” In simpler words, it says, “owning a pet — particularly a dog — could help lower your risk of heart disease.” (Dr. Glenn N. Levine, 2015)
And finally, dogs do lot’s more, they help so many people, even the community! They help police, firefighters, blind people, people with allergies, they go sledding, herding, hunting, racing, you can go on forever! Who doesn’t want to own a crime-fighting hunting dog?
Maybe, it’s not ‘just a dog.’ Maybe it’s your life-long best friend, or maybe your family. But one thing is for sure, you’ll never look at them the same way ever again. Because it’s not ‘just a dog’ it’s your one and only hero.
