View Full Version : what kind of animal are you?
i think we all choose pets (either cats or dogs) that is most closely approximated to our personality types.
what sort of pet would you want to have?
a friend of mine has a french bulldog: i was amazed how accurate her breed type was for her own personality:
The Frenchie cannot be owned and ignored. They are fairly willful, but can be trained if the owner is patient. They respond to patient, consistent training that DOES NOT include hitting or harsh jerking. They are clean, and companionable, enthusiastic and sometimes do not know when to quite, but they are not yappy and loud. This breed does best with older considerate children. Frenchies are easy going to show. This breed may drool and slobber; however a good percentage of them do not. This little dog is also a ruthless hunter of mice!
i personally love love love shih tzus. what sort of pet do you have/ want?

I have a mutt, he's collie and German Shepard mix. He's anal and finicky just as I am. I picked him because he was one of the only dogs that had not pissed in their cage and he was mellow unlike the others

Mutts also, but ideally I would get a wolf cub. The cub would be free to migrate when it wants, and I would have the pleasure of remaining the alpha..
Or else an Wolfhound (Irish wolfhound)

The panther is an agile and stealthy predator. Although smaller than the other members of the Panthera genus, the panther is still able to take large prey. The species' success in the wild owes in part to its opportunistic hunting behaviour, its adaptability to a variety of habitats and its ability to move quickly. The panther is solitary and, aside from mating, interactions between individuals appear to be infrequent. Aggressive encounters have been observed, however. Panthers are opportunistic hunters. The panther stalks its prey silently and at the last minute pounces on its prey and strangles its throat with a quick bite. Panthers often hide their kills in dense vegetation or take them up trees, and are capable of carrying animals up to three times their own weight this way. The black panther symbolizes the archetypical narrative about the struggle between forces of light and darkness.
Golden Eagles usually mate for life. Eagle feathers are often used in various Native ceremonies and are used to honour noteworthy achievements and qualities such as exceptional leadership and bravery. The Aztecs told how during the creation of the present world, the eagle and the jaguar fought over who would have the honor of becoming the sun. The eagle settled the matter by flinging himself into a fire and, thus, becoming the sun. When the eagle grows old and his wings become heavy and his eyes become darkened with a mist, then he goes in search of a fountain, and, over against it, he flies up to the height of heaven, even into the circle of the sun, and there he singes his wings and at the same time evaporates the fog of his eyes in ray of the sun. Then at length taking a header down into the fountain, he dips himself three times in it, and instantly he is renewed with a great vigour of plumage and splendor of vision.
Unlike many canids, foxes are usually not pack animals. Typically, they are solitary, opportunistic feeders that hunt live prey. Using a pouncing technique practiced from an early age, they are usually able to kill their prey quickly. Foxes are normally extremely wary of humans and are not kept as pets. There is a Tswana riddle that says that "Phokoje go tsela o dithetsenya" translated literally into Only the muddy fox lives meaning that only an active person who does not mind getting muddy gets to progress in life in philosophic sense that it is. Also, I like the Kitsune (To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 2 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.) myth surrounding the fox.
(I've included some mythical symbolism in the descriptions.)
