Cats, Dogs or Camels?

I read a story today about a camel pageant in the United Arab Emirates.  This event pits competitors hump-to-hump for the title of "most beautiful camel in the world."  You know how some horses can go for hundreds of thousands of dollars?  Well, a good-looking (and I use that term loosely) camel can set you back several million.  No joke:  CNN reporter Wilf Dinnick heard about a camel in Saudi Arabia worth $4.5 million, and it didn't come with a free house.

I CAN'T IMAGINE ANYTHING THAT DROOLS BEING WORTH $4.5 MILLION.

In the U.S., it's more about cats and dogs.  My sister owns two Siamese, and I don't think they're worth more than five bucks (yes, I will get in trouble for saying that).  Dogs, on the other hand, are awesome.  How can you put a price on your best friend?

So now that you know where I stand, tell us where you do:  cats, dogs...or camels?
