Little dogs for me. They always want me to hold them and will scratch my leg wanting to be held if they see a big dog or something.
Cats always seemed temperamental to me (might just not have met the right cat).2

I like them both but cats have the edge for me. If I was to own one of them, I'd pick a cat. Infact, I did.
I find cats more calming and when I'm at home, I want a calm environment for now. Some dogs can be very excitable and "play with me!" "walk me!" "omg, it's a TABLE!!!" Whereas my cat greets you when you come home, curls up with you and sleeps.1
