The dog is either there or it isn't – that's how dogs work, and anyone who can't see that is simple.
What about Evelyn, a modified dog?

Both hound dogs and hound cats exist simultaneously.
The "cat state" is the special entanglement of qubits wherein the qubits are in an equal superposition of all being 0 and all being 1; e.g.,
I'm just glad we're talking about dogs, where it's all very simple. Remove the lead, and the dog is gone (IME).
If we were talking about cats, we might find - as Schrödinger did - that the cat is both there and not there at the same time...
EDIT - I am liking paradiziac's work on this subject. Paradiziac, are you saying that dependent on quantum observational state, a hound may be both a cat and a dog simultaneously? Interesting theory...

The cat and dog outside looked from paradiziac to JD, and from JD to paradiziac, and from paradiziac to JD again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
Actually I haven't got the foggiest what I'm talking about.
I just read it somewhere on the internet and I'm repeating it here for something to do.

Now why does that sound familiar...?
Interestingly, you put a comma in, ie "You ain't nothing but a hound, dog" and the meaning changes. Or does it. Could the wrong cable introduce a comma?

Maybe the comma is after 'nothing', and he's derisively addressing Mr Butter Hound Dog.

This all seems pretty simple to me. If you use a digital cable you will always get a dog and because it's digital information it doesn't change so you will always get exactly the same dog. This is because the digital information passed through a digital cable will always stay exactly the same.
If the digital cable is faulty you may get a dropout which means that there'll be no dog but you still wouldn't get a cat. If the digital signal gets corrupt you will hear a hissing noise to which sounds a bit like an angry cat but we all know that this is not really a cat.
Now if you were to use an analogue cable there should still be a dog because the information still get's through mostly intact. But because analogue cables can distort the signal a little bit you might mistake the breed of the dog for another breed that is similar but I very much doubt that you would get a cat instead of a dog.
