Summary: Which is better, cats or dogs?
Word Count:100


Farawyn sat on the hearthrug playing with her cat, a handsome ginger tom who purred contentedly.

Eldarion raced into the room, his dog at his heels. The spaniel playfully chased the cat. Hackles raised, it growled at the intruder before fleeing.

“Your stupid dog’s upset my cat!” cried Farawyn.

“Your silly cat is cowardly!” Eldarion retorted.

“Cats are best!”

“Dogs are best!”

“Peace,” said Aragorn, entering unobserved. “Why must one choose either cats or dogs? I could never choose between you, my children. Cats and dogs each have their own worth, as do boys and girls while being very different!”

Aragorn is such a wise father! That is so like the spats of small children-- very true to life and very funny!

I've seen many an argument turn out just like that in children so it felt very true. And how wise is Aragorn!

Well done Aragorn for settling an argument that would never be settled otherwise.

Ah, now that's a neat way to settle the argument. (Although, like Virtuella, I will always prefer cats.)
