Not only does your neighbor George bear a striking resemblance to his bulldog Barry, but chances are, their resemblance is more than skin deep. Turns out that pet owners may also share their dogs’ personalities, according to new research.

Based on their answers, pet owners were categorized into one or more of these five personality types: extroverted, agreeable, conscientious, emotionally stable, and intelligent and creative.

Researchers then drew connections between owners’ personality types and what kind of dog they owned. (Does your dog never listen to you? It’s probably not his personality—it’s how he’s been trained.

Question by CRS: Why is it that “pit bull” bashers spout off about facts and statistics?

Question by Zelda Hunter: What do FELINE Greenies have in them that makes them so addictive?
I noticed that most of the reports about animals dying from Greenies causing intestinal obstruction were about dogs. Some people say that cat greenies are different and are entirely digestible. I’m not sure this is true, but in any case they are entirely addictive.
