Relationships with other pets

I feel like I've asked this question to all 4 corners of the internet, sigh. So sorry to those of you that have seen it many times (read: those on my flist). Anyway. I'm planning to go to TSE... at some point. Hopefully soon. It's complicated. But, I'm a cat lover. I'm trying to decide if I should get a cat now,or hold off until I have my dog. The only things that are making me want to hold off is leaving the cat for a month, and potential dominance issues. I know dogs from all schools (or at least, I assume) are trained to behave around cats, but I don't want there to be a power struggle between them during down time.

So, thoughts or personal experiences would be very much appreciated. I know there will undoubtedly be adjusting issues no matter what I do, I'm just trying to figure out which will be the easiest for everyone. Thanks for any thoughts.
