Ireland was a country I have always wanted to visit. They have that whole “Emerald Isle” thing going for them, not to mention that two of my favorite bands are Irish (Stiff Little Fingers and the Cranberries).
But, now I’m rethinking my position.
You see, I found this article titled “Study shows dog-loving Ireland hates cats.” It appears that only 10% of Irish families have a cat as a pet, while 36% have dogs. The Irish are right up there with us Yanks in terms of dog ownership (37% os US families own dogs), but 10% is bleedin’ unacceptable.
I don’t really know what to make of this. For now, let me just say this to the Irish: Póg mo thóin!
