    OK, I am a Dog person, but I think anybody will find this story remarkable.

    Dog saves man trapped in bath.

    Too bad the guy didn't teach the dog how to charge the phone!

    I wouldn't say that this article shows that cat's drool, it just shows that dogs are more likely to save your life...

    That is trully a remarkable heartwarming story. It's too bad that he didn't have some kind of medical alert around his neck that he could have called for help. I'm surpised that he didn't have someone checking on him more often than once a week! :(

    That is a remarkable dog that he remained with his master and kept him awake. I'm just glad that he is OK after his ordeal! :)

    This story just saves dog's reputation after that story about the family that trained the dog to unlock the front door for them, and it let a burglar into the house. :p

    I'ma dog lover and a cat would've sat there and stared at you. However, also keep in mind, it's 'BIG dogs' that save people. I have a min pin and do not believe for an instant this 18lb little guy could drag anyone anywhere :)

    It seems the person who eventually entered the apartment was actually a bus driver -- someone who wasn't really expected to do anything in particular. While the dog's loyalty and enginuity is sweet and entertaining, I think the true heart-warmer is that someone got out of his/her bus, went up to the apartment, called for help and went in to check. That's taking an interest in the well being of others. I aspire to that.






    (Oh, and regardless of the veracity of any claim of feline propensity for hypersalivatory function, dogs do, in fact, rule. :cool: )

    I agree. The fact that the kindness of strangers is still in existence warms the heart. Although it is disheartening that he didn't have friends or family that checked on him more often. I know my Mom calls me or I call her at least every other day. Of course I can't think of anybody else that checks on me like that. (I am married with a family, but I am not counting them....)

    Indeed, but This animal:
    'None' seems to be even more popular.

    I like both cats and dogs. I have accepted that Cats are independent animals whereas Dogs are pack animals and there is really no point in comparing them.

    I own a fish.

    Well there is a big difference. First of all the dog needs a lot more care and you have to devote him/her more time in general. It is in fact a thing of a character. I have a cat...:D
    She's completely free, goes out whenever she wants and come back when she's hungry. I feel almost no obligations at all. Don't get me wrong, a dog just attaches to you and demands a lot of your attention. But if it works for you I'm really glad....i just love animals..;)

    I agree with your assessment of dogs. Sometimes wonder how they ever made it in the wild. I don't have a cat. Do remember my grandmother have a cat on the farm to control mice.
