IIf issue

I have this in the default value of a field on a form.

=IIf([Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].[Column](1)<>"Cat" Or "Dog",True,False)

What I want to have happen is the checkbox (which is what this field is), needs to be checked (true) if [Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].[Column](1) is not "Dog" or "Cat".

If it is either "Dog" or "Cat" then it should not be checked.

What is wrong with my syntax?

You must directly compare both values. Also, if you're trying to make it so neither values are matched, you'll need to use "And" rather than "Or". So your code should look like this:
=IIf([Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].[Column](1)<>"Cat" And [Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].[Column](1)<>"Dog",True,False)

Not quite right.  It is checked even if  [Forms]![frmCustomers]![subfrmPets].[Form]![cboSpecies].[Column](1) = "Cat"
