carrie: and why do more detectives, even hard-boiled ones, own cats as opposed to dogs? does it tie into the HB hero as loner? Think about DeNiro in "Heat":

"Never have anything in your life that you wouldn't be willing to walk out on in 5 seconds flat." That's a hard-boiled credo if I ever heard one; is there a dog owner alive who could live up to that?


well, i hate cats. but i've never been more bored and disgusted by a man-and-his-dog relationship than vachss's burke and his mutt. geez... i think burke drooled more than the darn dog.

and should we start a thread for hardboiled strange pets? burke's dave robicheaux had a raccoon in _black cherry blues_.
