Why dogs are still not better than cats

How many times have you heard that stupid argument against cats, that a dog is a loyal, loving companion who would starve rather than leave your poor body once you're gone from the world, but a cat will eat you before you're even cold? Well, here's that lie shattered. At least a cat would wait til you're gone This is something out of a horror flick!

Quote:
TON, Ill. - An Illinois woman says her beloved miniature dachshund gnawed off her right big toe while she was asleep. Linda Floyd told the Alton Telegraph for a story Wednesday that her beloved Roscoe was euthanized because of safety concerns.

The 56-year-old says she has no feeling in her toes because of nerve damage from diabetes. She discovered the toe missing after waking from a nap Monday. She called her daughter, who phoned 911.

A veterinarian says the toe had been bandaged because of a healing hangnail. That might have somehow attracted the dog.

How do you not wake up when your toe is being gnawed off I still love dogs, I've never been hurt by one, have had many scratches from cats though, the only difference is when a dog does something to you they do more damage.

I think if a miniature dachshund chewed off my toe without my knowledge, I probably would not tell anyone.

Seriously, did they pump Roscoe's stomach looking for the toe?

If she has nerve damage from the diabetes she may not have any feeling in the feet. Her biggest problem right now will be healing without losing more of her foot.

Argh well at least it isn't another APBT story, I'm getting real sick of those. There was something like that happened a year ago(?) or so an puppy chewed off several toes on a toddler. Never heard much else about it other then the little girl was fine and the puppy was as well.

I think either this dog had some major issues in his head or was a puppy and was teething and chewing on the best thing available. Either way poor guy, it's never nice to hear an animal has died. Hopefully it wasn't a rash choice but looked into before it was done.

I really don't think a cat would prey on his or her owner like that. Arianwen sometimes pretends she's going to eat my hand, but it's all in good fun. I tell her, "Help, help, a tiger is eating me!", and she starts purring. She is very gentle, and doesn't break my skin at all. She could inflict serious damage if she wanted to, as she is quite strong, and her claws and teeth are very sharp.

But she is my sweet, trusted friend who wouldn't hurt me.
