… 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?”
“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?
