Regardless of the point... It's interesting to see how domesticated animals have a larger impact on humanity as a whole.
This has been known for a long time. Dogs may have gone extinct if it weren't for humans. And humans progressed faster because of dogs.
Man's best friend is an understatement.
I think Cats are better friends to humans than dogs. They are more intelligent, can manage on their own and care more about their owner. That's my opinion at least.
My dog comes flying at me whenever I come home, occasionally comes into my room to check I'm still there, sits and watches TV with me and even moves up on the sofa so there's room for both of us.
Sure they can be cute and have pretty faces/eyes/whatever, but otherwise I can find something as good/better here.
Dogs just straight up love their owners most of the time, even if their owners abuse them.
