Battle of the Pets! The rules

Patch 3.0.2 hit and everything we thought we knew about pets has changed.  In the Burning Crusade the mighty cat was the hunters favorite, followed closely by the viscous ravager.  Who now will be king of the ring?  Which pet has the highest DPS?  I thought I would put it to the test.  Here are the rules:

Take two level 65 pets. Feed them. Talent them with DPS talents.  Turn off dash, cower, other focus using talents that do not add to DPS.  Aspect of Hawk on.  Now spend 2 mins attacking a level 60 target dummy and then a level 70 target dummy with each pet and with each of the following sets of skills:

  • Growl only (control)
  • Growl and focus dump (bite, claw, smack)
  • Special skill only (monstrous bite, rake, etc)
  • Focus dump + special skill 
*just to smooth out the comparisons I did not use Big Red <insert pet here>
Each post we will compare 2 pets.  The winner will take on the next contender, knock-out style.
Who will win, Battle of the Pets?
