     Man's best friend wins the popularity contest against long-time rival - the cat.

     An AP-Petside poll found Americans prefer pooches over felines. 15% of respondents disliked cats compared to just 2% who felt that way about dogs. Men were more likely than women to dislike cats.

   However, the news wasn't all grim. The poll found 60% of Americans like both animals. Now, it's your turn to chime in on the debate.
