I'm a brachycephalic over; meaning most of the dogs I adore have the pushed in faces.

French Bulldogs
English Bulldogs
Pekingese
Shih tzu
Boston Terrier

However my top two breeds right now are French Bulldogs and American pit Bull Terriers. I know at some point I'll own my pitty, but at the same time I could really see a little Frenchie running around with Ted. Whatever my next dog is it'll be a rescue.

I always fall for the pits when I go into a shelter so I KNOW at some point there will be a couch potato pitty around here.

We have a french bulldog and a couple borzoi. The frenchbull dog is our little clown. She belongs to my girlfriend. The borzoi are my favorite breed. They are normally quiet. I had my first one for six months before I knew he could bark. The male I have now maybe barks once a week. Usually only a couple yelps. They are also very beautiful. I love to watch them run full out. What a sight to behold. They also come in all colors and have a gorgeous, long silky coat. They are extremely gentle with everyone.

My favorite breed are Old English Sheepdogs. They don't shed, they're fun and clownish, loyal, and big ol' teddy bears. My Lily thinks she's a tiny cat.

We have a Bichon and a Havanese. I love them both and like different things about their personalities. My vet says Bichons are usually either stoic or drama queens. Mine is a drama queen. The Havanese is something else--I've seen them described as big dogs trapped in little dogs' bodies. She is much more of a lap dog and a never leave my side dog than our Bichon.

Long hair Chihuahua. My little redhaired lady is quite a pistol. Sweet, affectionate, energetic, funny, great personality, stubborn, and very assertive. She cows the rottweilers next door, but runs and hides at loud sounds. My sister isn't crazy about dogs, but when she sat with my Chi on her lap for a road trip, she said, "Well, I usually don't like dogs and prefer cats. But I could fall in love with this one."

Chi's can be tough though. Hard to socialize and harder to house train. Only because they have a mind of their own. Plus, they never seem to get the memo that they are pint-sized.

Best thing about my Chi's? They are great mind readers and people readers. If they don't like you (and that's rare), well, see ya! Good barometers for dates.

Dogs are angels in fur coats...

Must spread the love, but I agree full-heartedly.

I will always have a Labrador...I have two now and soon will be adding a third to the mix. Also Irish Wolfhounds are a favourite.

I love our Bichon. He is quiet, friendly, obedient, patient with our daughter and affectionate.

I am on call right now, and he just rested on the bed, while I was working.

Cool I love all dogs but my ownership requires size!

I love 'em big and goofy! Anything over 50 lbs is great. Most of my dogs have been in the 80 pound range. My personal all time breed is a German Shepard. Can't be beat for me. Always had at least one GSD in my life at all times. Love the breed. Still labs are great, grey hounds are cool. Want to have a Irish Wolfhound or Scottish Deerhound sometime.
Still all in all, big and goofy is for me!

I do love all dogs and would never turn one way if it needed a home and love.
