Interesting Vocabulary: Animals #6, by Dennis Oliver

Special Names:
Breeds (Kinds) of Cats and Dogs



People in the U.S. are very fond of pets, and the most
common pets in the U.S. are probably
cats and dogs.
There's a lot of information on the WWW about cats
and dogs. If you're interested in learning a bit more
about them, here are two good places to start:


1. Breeds of Cats

  There's a very interesting website is sponsored by the
Cat Fancier's Association. Have you ever heard of
Birman? A Korat? An Ocicat? A Somali? You can

by choosing the link below. It lists 39 cat breeds--from
the Abyssinian to the Turkish Van--and has beautiful
pictures and very interesting descriptions.


Here's the Link.


2. Breeds of Dogs

or a
Great Pyrenees or a Pharaoh Hound, you can
