Are you a right brain or a left brain? Or are you like someone we know who is confused brain? The reason we ask this is that since the news was announced that dog owners reportedly have a higher IQ than cat owners -- or was it the other way around -- and Jan has both dogs and cats, we have been wondering whether one who has dogs and cats has a confused IQ.

As an update to our question on why the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand do not have rabies.
Buddy: Boy, I had no idea what we'd learn when my rabies tag tore off one month before renewal and we decided to post a photo of what is left of mine and Sam's. Such shoddy workmanship for a three year tag. Wonder what I can break next?
Hsin-Yi, Honey the Great Dane's human, left a comment to explain this.
Yes, there are some countries that are "rabies-free" and they have very strict quarantine laws to keep it that way. It is actually 6 MONTH quarantine in the UK, not 6 weeks! - unless your dog has a Pet Passport and has had 2 blood tests over a 6 months period to prove that they are rabies-free, if they are entering the UK from other countries which have rabies (eg, US & Canada). Of course, if they are born and have lived all their lives in those rabies-free countries, then they are considered safe. So animals from these rabies-free countries can travel between them without quarantine restrictions (eg, why Honey moved into Australia from NZ with no quarantine). Aside from the UK, Australia and NZ, the other countries are Switzerland and Taiwan and Japan, I think. They are mostly islands, so easier to patrol borders, but they do maintain very strict controls to keep their rabies-free status. It is good as if you live in them (and your pet was born there), then you never really have to worry.
