So I was listening to the radio again…

… and they are having a contest this week that involves pets. If the owner can get their dog or cat to bark or meow on command, they win. It occured to me there is a funny difference between the two owners.

A sample cat owner conversation.

“We are with Amy today. Hi Amy. Who is with you today?”
“Sparkles will be competing today.”
“Excellent. And Sparkles is a …”
“… a cat.”

A sample dog owner conversation.

“So Lisa is on the phone. Hi Lisa! Who is with you today?”
“Charlie”
“Great. What is Charlie?”
“Charlie is 1/2 border collie, 2/3 german shepard, 1/2 shit-zu, 1/5 doberman…”

A dog owner never says, “Charlie is a dog.”

Why is that?
