To add some lightheartedness on a situation, my eldest daughter has just left home as a lot of you know and I was feeling a bit sad so now I would like you to share with me the qualities of a dog and the qualities of a man about the house and any funny stories you may have about which is better to have at home. As playful as you like as I need cheering up a bit. Ellie :D

I agree but I used to have much more fun on the beach with my two labroadors running in the sea getting the ball but they never rubbed the suncream on my back so we are evens here I think. Farts, yuk, the poor dog always gets the blame even when it is the man eh! Ellie:D

Hello Ellie, dogs make great companions once their housetrained. They'll follow you everywhere, you can play frisbee or throw a ball with them, they will gladly curl up next to you all of the way through a chick flick without complaining and are happy eating your table scraps. Men on the other hand are good at taking out the garbage(when they feel like it) and fixing minor things around the house. But usually they do these thing only because they believe it will get them what they want. All in all, I would go for the puppy, more faithful and easier to train. And you never have to question their motives! Hugs, Tianna

If you give your dog a bowl of food at least he will clean the bowl not just leave it in the sink for you to clean. On the downside a dog uses his tongue to clean the bowl. Speaking of bowls at least the dog goes outside to do his business and doesn't leave the seat up! Hmmm maybe I should trade the man in for a dog...

But with the dog you have to pick it up afterwards and with a man you just have to put seat back down as it is flushed away! Food for thought there eh! Sorry about the pun it was the plates and bowls that did that one. Ellie :D

A dog is a loyal friend, a man?? it is hard to say. And dogs dont have dirty socks for you to clean, and dogs even clean their own butt, lol Dogs are good listeners, men?? I doubt.. Dogs are easy to please too and they always make you happy.

Good points there Snowxue, though I have to say that all the men I've ever been out with also clean their own butts! Dirty socks I can cope with, but they can keep their butts to themselves.

Forget both and get some chickens! They may not be very cuddly and you wouldn't want to have them anywhere near your bed, but they're more fun than either!

Well Ellie we all know mens qualities - you can write them on a post it note but dogs will love you , protect you , take you for lovely long walks and when you feed them they are grateful, they don't just fart and walk away! Definitely better with a dog! lol xxx

Hi Fundose, Oh what a lovely offer and for a lifetime, yes some men are very loyal too I agree, this was a playful discussion and it seems that the dog is in the lead at times and then at others the man but hear all what you are saying and yes ofcourse a loving relationship with a man is far more important but a dog definitely greets you happily every time though eh! Thanks for sharing. Ellie :D

A dog gives you unconditional love, is always glad to see you, and doesn't usually argue. You can always watch your favorite program on TV and golly -- there are so many other advantages!

Must be something in the air ....Or is it the full moon? I tend to think that we all have animal characteristics at times. Cool as a cucumber I think I once heard someone say. I will venture think that your eldest daughter is spreading her wings. Let her fly. But also let her know that you will always and are always there for her with love the kind that she will need when she runs into those unexpected things out in the big world. She needs a friend at this time maybe even more so than a mom. Dogs are good for some things. Is her father the reason she left home? I am not seeing the parrel between a man and a dog. Maybe I am missing part of the facts. But personally dogs are good for dog things and men are good for man things. A dog can fetch the paper but cant read it. I guess for some dogs are good, and men are better. What is DOG spelled in REVERSE? Who really knows which is better...but what is the reverse from God? the best is yet to come! sincerely personally I tink its best to let the ladies reply on this I... peace and love

Well, you can always train a dog in a matter of weeks. You can always get them pretrained too lol. A man takes years to train. A dog will look at you with adoration and love and want to be with you everyday. A man switches off and on.

Hi K1tten, yesd I agree a dog can be trained, a man is unknown entity but in all due respect to men as some might be reading post I suppose women are to them too. So its the dog then for me cos at least I know what I'm getting, loyalty, love, affection. Ellie :D

Hi ellie, This is a cute topic, funny as well..LOL, A dog has limited to offer although they are a lot of fun but they can't talk to us back, nor hug or comfort us during the time we need it. They will just wiggle and give us a cute face which sometimes enough to cheer us up but I still would insist, they have limitations to offer compared to man! Cheers!

Well I say go ahead and get the dog, for all the reasons listen here, and more, up to and including that the dog might lead you to the man and having someone to grow old with (as the average life expectancy of a dog is only 7 years) is going to be the best and wisest choice in the long run, plus when you get to having grandbabies, I think the man would be a better choice because he can share your joy, while the dog will just get annoyed and bite at the little ones ;) Food For Thought....;) So tell me now how do you all get those super cool smiley faces and such, do you have to reach a certain number of posts?

I say a dog all the way girl! Unlike men, dogs are quiet, they listen when you speak, are always there for you through thick and thin no matter what, they don't judge you... What's to think about? Men, make you cry, ignore you when yo talk, are always too busy to spend time with you, and judge how you look, speak and every littl ething we do, since we tend to forget that they are perfect in every way, shape and form an dare GOD's gift to the Universe... and yes, if you can't tell, I am a woman scorned, and if I just had a dog, none of this would've happened!
