Dogs Afraid of Walking Past Cats

What is it about some cats and dogs when even the braviest of canines give ground to much smaller kitties protecting their patch—on the top of a staircase, near a doorway, a hallway or just about anywhere where a cat likes to guard? It's amazing how well dogs understand feline body language that cries out "you shall not pass." I guess if helps if have sharp claws with kung fu moves.

If you live with a multispecies family, who rules the roost in your household?
