[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Since you're dealing with equations here, the dogs and cats undoubtedly have something to do with numbers.

Hint Two
    Try adding up the left side of each equation and looking at the results. Are you starting to see what the cats and dogs represent?

Hint Three
    A dog stands for an odd number, and a cat stands for an even number...

Super Hint
    Dog means an odd number.

    Cat means an even number.

Too bad!

Try and work out what those cats and dogs represent.

[edit] When Completed

Incredible!

The answer is 110.

For each digit of each sum's answer, if the number is odd, it's a dog. If it's even, it's a cat.

Therefore, the smallest number that will result in dog dog dog is 111, which is 1 + 110!

[edit] Solution

The smallest number can be 110.
