We have a Cockapoo (Cocker Spaniel/Poodle) named Tara that's 10 years old and then the cats Blaze (15) and Blacky (unknown, had for 8 years)... my aunt has a Snowshoe cat named Zoey (2 years old) and a recently got a puppy named Coco (some kind of Spaniel, Poodle and Eskimo mix)... anyway, the way all the animals interact is interesting and unique, each animals takes or doesn't take to others.
Tara and Blaze:
Tara loves Blaze. She is obsessed with him, digs him out of his bedding, follows him around, goes nose to nose with him, doesn't mind if he sits right beside her, etc. Meanwhile, Blaze puts up with Tara but sometimes enough is enough and he'll hiss or swat at Tara (he never
Tara and Blacky:
Tara tolerates Blacky. She's getting better at it, but she used to immediately jump off the bed of Blacky joined us. Sometimes she tries to block Blacky's way up stairs (non-threatening, just standing in the way), and sometimes she tries to put a run on her - it doesn't work, Blacky isn't remotely afraid of Tara and just stands there complely relaxed until Tara ends up standing directly in front of her. Blacky would likely get along fabulously with Tara if Tara would be more accepting of her.
Tara and Zoey:
Tara more or less ignores Zoey, Zoey shows an interest in her since Zoey likes dogs but it doesn't get her anywhere.
Coco and Blaze:
Blaze is indifferent to Coco and Coco is pretty indifferent to Blaze, they've gone nose to nose and stuff but they don't see each other much anyway.
Coco and Zoey (they live together):
Are starting to get along, Zoey tries to play with Coco but Coco can be too hyper for her. Coco likes taking Zoey's toys and Zoey will chase after Coco to get them back, haha.
Coco and Blacky:
As soon as Coco sees Blacky a chase ensues. Blacky doesn't really know Coco so hisses if Coco gets too close when restrained on a leash to prevent chasing her and Coco is oblivious to the fact that Blacky doesn't like the chasing!
My aunt's previous cats (two Balinese) were in the "ignore" category with Tara as well, they took a swipe at her when she was a puppy and since then she studiously ignored them.
Our two previous dogs were in the "ignore" category with the two Balinese as well.
My aunt's cat before the two Balinese (he was deaf) hated men but loved dogs, he got along with our Jack Russel at the time, and that Jack Russel would snuggle with him! Any other cat she would occasionally try to chase, especially the Lynx point Balinese... we figure it looked too much like a raccoon for her instincts.
Here's a few pictures:

Tara and Blacky (they do sleep on the same bed together at times but I don't have any pictures of that!)
Since I'm sharing pictures of my family pets I feel bad leaving any of the current pets out, but I don't have a picture of a few of them with other pets... so they'll have to go solo:
And here's one (yeah, terrible lighting!) of Blaze:
