I can’t count the times folks have asked me which is my favorite, cats or dogs. And as an equal opportunity pet lover, I’ve steadfastly refused to choose. However, there have been times when, just for fun, I’ve championed one or the other pet in a tongue-in-cheek debate.
Last time, I championed cats. It was YEARS ago (as you can see in this video) during the GREAT PET DEBATE on the Today Show over whether Socks Clinton or Leader Dole would make the better White House Pet. FWIW, the cat side won the phone-in poll. Even Katie Couric voted for the cats! :)
My friend Franny the Cats Guide posed the challenge this time. Here’s her 10 reasons cats are better than dogs. So, I had to respond with Dogs vs Cats: 10 Reasons Puppies Are Better. What do you think? We’ve even set up a poll where you can vote.
THIS JUST IN! Puppies.About.com has WON the Dog Writers Association of America Maxwell Award (for the 2nd year in a row) for Best Website, arrrooooooo! So that’s even more incentive to check out the fun puppy-licious site.
I also wanted to share this fun interview with Kourtney Heinz about my writer-icity journey from Big 6 to small press. She’s a writer to watch!
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. There are some fun videos at the bottom, too!
