Candy is a fatty pomeranian. She is a very simple, naive dog that does not understand why squirrels and cats do not want to be her friends. She's a little snobby thought because she ignores other dogs. I think she thinks she's human.

PS I don't have photoshop on this computer so I could not shrink these pictures. They are ~500kb so I leave them as external links.

Candy is a little hungry now

Dogs and cats are both great!

I'm incredibly fucking lazy, so cats work better for me; they're more self-sufficient. Dogs are WORK. Now if I can just litterbox train my children once they're born..

I had no trouble with that omission, Ralf. :)

I used to just not like cats, but my new girlfriend has one. Now I really REALLY dislike them. This cat completely ignores both her and me unless it's hungry. Then it's all 'Purrrrrr' and rubbing up against your legs. So basically it only gives you love when it blatantly wants something. I wouldn't treat my friends like that, and wouldn't let my friends treat me like that. Why is it okay with cats?

Just me venting, because the girlfriend doesn't read this site! :)

With regards to cats vs. dogs, here at SILENT PC REVIEW, the more relevant question is: which is quieter?

I think the answer is fairly obvious :D

My doggie is quiet as long as she is sleeping and not snoring.

Her dog tags tend to make a bit of metallic noise. I was able to muffle them with some rubber padding. The bit I can't handle is getting her to be quiet when she's begging for food. Definitely an annoying high-pitched yelping.

We have a pair of Norwegian Elkhounds and I find the sound of their 16/32 tiny toenails on the slate and wood floors to be a way to follow where they are going. The bitch snores, cannot fix that. Both are real loud when they are protecting their (our) property.

I believe everything I see on TV (good thing I don't get US TV) so I think that cats are always trying to take over the world and that dogs are trying to save us!.
I voted "Yes, cats are evil."

You can always get IrfanView. It's *free* and does what most people need in a photo editor, just fine, thank you! :) It also makes a great image browser, too.

IrfanView is an excellent program... free or not! I have almost all of those types of proggies and my preferred apps are IfranView and Thumbsplus. Why? I guess that they are just well trained and easy to work with (just like a good dog! :lol: ), something Photoshop isn't.

Samson (-ite).

A Leonberger. German breed that's a cross between a St. Bernhard, a NYUF (New Foundland) and a Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

Nicknamed "Lean-To-Bergers", as you have 50-60 Kg of dog leaning against you asking for cuddles. Verry affectionate and intelligent breed :).

The above is true for pretty much every Leo I've encountered. Thus my love for the breed :).
