Old Dogs are the Best Dogs makes me want a Kindle DX, almost
I have to say, I recommend it even if in a way it's just a coffee table type ebook, now there is a strange category of ebook...

Dogs are good , and cats are evil.
I understand exactly how you feel: Dogs make good, life-long buddies. In my own experience, fox terriers are loving and sweet animals, and full of affection.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.

I love both. I have a Yorkie that's very cat-like. Loves high places, kitty toys and cuddles. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to cats these days, but I still appreciate their qualities.

I've got 2 older cocker spaniels. One is 15, the other 10 (that's the younger one to the left). Great companions 24 hours a day. Told my wife it's OK if she leaves, just as long as the "girls" (our 2 cockers) stay. Unfortunately, that won't happen -- they both are really momma's girls.
We used to also have a cat. It was great fun to watch the dogs and the cat play chase. The cat would sneak up behind one of the girls, swat her (claws retracted) and run. The swatted dog would chase the cat to the other end of hallway. They'd stop and reverse position -- the cat would now chase the dog back. This would go on for quite some time. When they got tired, they'd all curl up in a huge dog bed together and nap.
Then we moved to a house in the city and installed a pet door for the dogs as part of the remodeling. The dogs didn't quite figure out how it worked until the cat showed them. Then it became a gateway for freedom for the cat. Although we live on a very quiet street with minimal traffic, the cat liked to hunt. one night it went out to hunt and became roadkill.
The only thing I really disliked about the cat (and why I don't have a cat now) is that they go anywhere. I got tired of having the cat walk across my keyboard as I was editing a manuscript.

All of your posts reminded me of an author who popped in about his dog book on Kindle, Humphrey Was Here.
