Until her passing a few months ago, she was my personal library cat and loved every minute of it.

  100. Marianne OHara

    I have two French Bulldogs and one Munchkin cat. They are all family to me and they all have quite different personalities.
    I would have loved to attend the convention this year. But circumstances wouldn’t allow it. Now,I am trying to put away money each week to assure my being able to attend it next year. I have really enjoyed different comments and pictures on Facebook and I really like that one stamp set I keep seeing cards of (with the leaves and sun). Can’t wait to get my hands on that one!

  111. Maggie Morton

    GO DOGGIES!! I wasn’t much of a pet lover until I was married. My husband came w/the Boo Boo the white poodle & the doggie needed a lot of TLC. Since my husband was to busy wondering the streets himself someone needed to take of Boo Boo. I bonded w/Boo Boo even though he & I had a love hate relationship because the dog never really liked me. He missed his master but I think he was thankful that I feed him. Unfortunately, my marriage didn’t survive & when he left I missed Boo Boo. Shortly after I got my own white poodle Cachito (meaning: little piece in Spanish), this guaranteed the dog would never leave. It’s now been 5 years & I think of Boo Boo but I’m in love w/my Cachito. I now have inherited 2 other dogs (Frijolito (meaning: little bean in Spanish)the Chihuahua Shitzu mix & Max the Yorkie Poodle that were given to my sister but she couldn’t take care of them. Now I happily sleep w/dogs every night!!!

  112. Very much a dog person. I hope you’re enjoying convention!

  113. Growing up we had both dogs and cats, but sadly due to allergies, I have no pets as an adult. I would say I like dogs better.

  114. I have both a cat and a dog and love them both very much! Although, I do tend to be a bit more of a cat person.

  115. Congrats on a great year and hopes for a prosperous next one. Thanks for being so good about sharing your ideas and tips, love your new creating room.
    I have a granddog and grandkitty, that’s enough for me.

  116. I love both but prefer the cats….

I’ve read so many posts and sounds like everyone had so much fun there.

  182. We had a sweet little dog for 14 years. But she died. Then we got a cat, well two cats.They were farm cats that my aunt had. She got the herd rate when she took her cats to the vet, if that gives you an idea of how many she had. obviously she loved them, and they loved her. She had these two cats that were so cute, one had one black dot on her head, and the other had two, so we named them onezy and twozy. Well, Onezy was infected with all sorts of things from the farm, and she died. Then we only had twozy for years and years. one year we wintered in Arizona, and took her with us, but many years later she died. The we wnet to the animal shelter, and found two diluted calico cats. We name them after our Grandmothers, Mine was Sadie and his was Katie. They are the queens of the house. We are cat people, but did love our little dog, Buffy so much. Please pick me…good luck tonight, and have lots of fun. PS: Monday is my birthday:)

    I love animals of all varieties, have had dogs, cats, chicks and bunnies all as house pets during different times of my life. Horses too,( but outside)…pretty good for not ever living on a farm.. But now it would have to be a cat, as I’m too busy at work to give a dog the care that he would need. So for me I love them all, but it would depend on where I was in my life as to which I could care for.Love love love your Blog, and thank you for all of your kindness and talents!!!!

    I was for many years a cat person, there was Ichabodd, spelled with 2 d’s, Rhubarb, and Stewart. Now at almost seventy my heart has been won over by a sweet little Yorkie, my grand dog, Preston. He gets birthday and get-well cards, also Christmas.
    A Work of Art is on my wish list and could not believe it when I learned the polka dots had been retired. Wishing you the best…

  283. Have always been a cat person. We had 3at one time, now just one purrfect cat!

  284. I think I am both. I love the grace and beauty that a cat has, but sometimes their independence makes me just want to cuddle with a cute little puppy and feel all warm and fuzzy.

  285. Dog all the way. My Yoda-Baby is the best!
    Hope you’re having fun in SLC visiting and learning new techniques.
    Have fun!

  296. Tammy Jo Tanner

    Well I would say at one time I was a dog person (I do love dogs) but I own a cat because I am getting to tired to be able to take care of a dog. I even like like more of a cat now that I am getting older. I just love to lay around the house (when all the work is done) and know one is home.

  300. Mary, since I am allergic to both cats and dogs I would have to say I love birds, especially Finches. I expect to hear that you won an award tonight at the SU
    convention; what a great demonstrator you are. I love your 1 minute Wows

  301. Delilah Brooks

    That’s a hard question to give an answer to. We have a farm in lower Alabama, and we have had everything from peacocks, guineas (not pretty animals but good watch “dogs”), rabbits, pheasants, turkeys, to horses, and a long-horn steer. We are down to 16 horses(two are miniature), 1 long-horn steer, 13 goats, 9 cats, and 1 dog (we did have five but old age took them from us last year). We rescue whatever needs saving and lots of love, especially horses. My husband and I are 65 and 63 and retired and love where we are and what God has asked us to do with our time. Our grown children loved it, still do, and so does the granddaughter. I love and marvel at your works of art each day. Enjoy the convention and good luck tonight!!!!

  302. Dog definitely!!! I wish I was in Salt Lake City with SU

  303. As the saying goes, “Cats rule, dogs drool!” Count me in as a cat person! Wishing you the best at the awards ceremony! Remember, you’re a winner no matter what anyone else says! (but I know you’ll be recognized for something!)

  304. A cat person. I live with a very spoiled girl who runs the house. I guess when the kids move out the cat takes over! Thanks for the chance for blog candy!

  305. I’m definitely a cat person! Our cat, Bo, is 3 years old and loves to get in trouble!
    Wishing all the best to you Mary!

  306. Bridget Trefethen

    I used to have cats, dogs, goldfish, gerbils, guinea pigs, rats, and mice. Now I don’t have any pets at all! Way too many spiders in corners in my house, though. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy!

    Loving that I found your blog! I get excited every time I get the notice that there is a new post. Thanks for all the fun inspiration and the fabulous videos!

  311. Definitely cats for me; we’ve owned 4 in the course of our married life,
    and I had them before that. Each one has its own idiosyncrasies and personality
    and each one is adorable! I would love to win any of these prizes!

  312. Wow Mary – how much fun to be with so many of your Stamping Pretty Pals Community members. I always enjoy hearing about Convention.

  318. Patricia Swagler

    I am both a cat and a dog person as I have had both most of my life. Our cat passed away several years ago at age 18 and we have a Shih Tzu who will be 14 in September-he has problems with his skin, eyes and ears poor guy. Thank you for the chance to win.

  319. A dog person for sure, but I love all critters! Thank you for all you do! If I show up twice, I am sorry. I was having trouble with my phone!

  326. Dogs and birds. Enjoy Convention and good luck!

  327. We have had dogs, cats, hamsters, snakes, and fish as pets at our house. I loved the fish, something about that water and fish moving around is so peaceful. When I felt stressed, I would listen to music and watch the fish. Try it … it is cheaper than going to a physichiatrist. LOL
    I love your 1 minutes video tips, thanks for helping all us “scrappers” out. Good Luck.

  328. Definitely a dog person! In fact, I just adopted an adorable 18 mo. old toy poodle from a local rescue. She is so cute. I also have an older miniature poodle. Love those dogs . . . Enjoy the convention!

    Def a dog person!! And I love Blog Candy!!!! Wish I were in Utah!! Maybe next year!

  330. I love my cats and no doubt have their personality! I sincerely hope you enjoy your time in “our” city. I am sure you have been here before and have walked through the beautiful temple grounds. I am not LDS but was so impressed with SL when I first moved here (more than 20 years ago) that I decided to stay. We have lots of cultural things to do, shopping is great, sporting things are abundant (both to do and watch), the weather gives us all 4 seasons. What else could a person want ….. Well, Stampin-Up! It’s headquarters are here also. Hope all the team enjoys SLC and your CONVENTION. Will be glad to see all the new products and creative ways to use them.

    I love it when dogs make people happy! When I saw patient faces light up in the nursing home, where my dad was a patient, I had a new appreciation for the feelings dogs bring out in people. For a while people forgot their problems and put on a smile.

BUT…….at the warehouse where I work, we have a “colony” of cats, all of which (but one) have been fixed so they don’t make more.

    I wish you all the best at convention! I am a cat person. Was a dog person for a long time, but after we started traveling more often, it was easy to switch to cats, and now I would not go back to dogs – they take too much care in comparison to cats.

    I can’t wait to watch the life feed today. Good luck tonight. I am truly a dog and cat person, having both my whole life. I would laugh if my Mother said my sisters and I were fighting like “cats and dogs” as our animals never fought. Even today, I have both. I don’t care for birds or fish. xoxo 🙂

  557. I have to say I am another kind. We have house rabbits, they cuddle up to us, they beg on two legs, just like a dog. So for me it would be rabbits, then of course dogs.

  566. My cat acts like she’s a dog – follows me around the yard and always wants love – so maybe I’m a little of both!! Enjoy your evening and good luck!

  567. Am a dog person! But grew up with cats. Good luck tonight!

  568. Woof woof woof! Yup, I sometimes bark at my 4# teacup poodle! Best of luck at convention Mary!!!

  582. Susan Saunders

    I have two incredible English Bulldogs whom we adore . . . and we’ve ended up with three cats. Two of them came from a feral mother — we rescued the kittens during a hurricane. And our newest little guy was running around our yard all by himsef at about 3 weeks old. I don’t think I could choose dogs over cats or vice versa. We love them all. Good luck at convention, Mary. Hope you win lots and lots of awards.

  583. Julie Littman

    Hi Mary, dog or cat… But my 2 big poodle girls would vote for dogs only!
    Best wishes for tonite! And have fun! Julie Littman

  584. I am a dog person we recently had to put down our dog of 21 years, and I have not replaced her, just can’t find the right one to take her place. Soon maybe, thanks for the chance to win and have a wonderful time at convention.

  585. Good luck tonight Mary!
    I fall into the other critter category. The only ‘pets’ I’ve ever nurtured (?) are fish. My sister and her husband have 3 cats so I tolerate them (and all the cat hair) when I visit…that’s enough bonding for me 🙂

  586. I’m definitely a cat person. I have had a cat since I was in second grade. Had to give up cats when my sweet grandson became allergic to them. Good luck to you tonight.

  587. I own neither a cat nor dog, but if I was forced to have an in-home pet, I would choose a dog! But I do enjoy feeding my sister’s cat when she is out of town!

  588. I’m definitely a dog person. I have my “granddog” lying right beside me as I type. Thanks for this opportunity to win.

  589. Actually, I love both. Right now I have two dogs, a mini Dachshound and an English cocker. I had four cats at one time, a Russuian Blue, Burmese, Mainecoon and a Tonkanese! At the same time we had a Rottweiler and a Leonberger. Quite a house full.

  590. I do not own either, but I have 5 “granddogs” and I love them. Have a great time at convention!

  591. I am not a pet person but I enjoy watching the animals at the zoo! Good luck and thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

  592. I’m glad the cat gets to play! We have grand-kitties instead of grandchildren, so we HAVE to love them most!

  593. Kelley Miranda

    Absolute dog person! We have one French Bulldog and will have another next weekend. We’re very excited! Good luck at convention!

  594. Meow, Meow, Cats are my favorite. I love the way they cuddle up to you. Thanks for the opportunity to let the world know my preference.

  600. Good luck with the awards tonight, Mary! I love all animals but since my children have dogs (I call them my granddogs since there are no grandchildren yet) I will go with dogs. I do like Susan Itell’s pig…cute as a button!

    Good luck tonight and thanks for the chance to win.

  606. Love the give away and checking in with you through your blog everyday. Have a fun convention and thanks for the fun.

  607. As I am getting older I am now preferring cats to dogs. No explanation except cats don’t have to be walked twice a day.:)

  608. Cat person! That stamp set is on my want list. I look forward to your email to enjoy with my morning coffee. You have great ideas

  611. I’ve never been fortunate enough to have a pet; but, I adopt other people’s dogs. I’ll even volunteer to walk the neighbors dogs.

  612. Definitely cat people. We have two “Inside” cats and approximately 16 to 18 “outside” cats that my husband feeds twice a day. People stop and just watch when it is feeding time. So far, four of the kittens have been adopted. We do have a dog that really belongs to our daughter. She only wanted us to keep the dog until she graduated from college. That was four years ago. The dog is still with us.

  613. 2 beautiful kitties made their into my life a year ago & the joy they have brought rivals the joy I get from paper crafting! Love the inspiration & techniques you share. Thank u!!!

  614. Lynda McKittrick

    I love both dogs and cats, but probably lean a little more toward.dogs, if I had to make a choice. My “grand puppy” is coming for a visit this week, so we should be in for lots of fun! Have fun at convention.

  615. Karen Russell

    I am a dog person. The bigger the better. We rescued a stray from Shea Statium years ago. Had him from before his eyes were open! Had to bottle feed. He fit in the palm of my hand when we got him. Eight years later when he died his paw didn’t fit in my hand!!! Will also cherishe him. I have had labs and now rescued a boxer in February. Full of energy and love. Good luck tonight Mary.

  616. I’ve always been a cat person, but I think I’m becoming more of a dog lover. Cats are less maintenance for sure, but mine always seem to want to mark all my stuff (boys and girls!) BLECH! I can’t do a dog by myself, but when I have a second body in the house to help, I think a dog will be first up on the To Get list 🙂

  617. Other critters: the only pet I liked was a frog. But it stops there and does not include the mouse I saw run across my floor last night!

  618. I’m definitely a dog person; cats are cute but I’m allergic. 🙁 Good luck at convention, Mary!

Oh my goodness, there has been a parade of all kinds of critters, big and small, living in our house since my daughters were little and now, it’s our grandchildren’s critters turn, besides dogs and cats.
