Where was Obamadog? I’m surprised that the American I-dull/Oprah Win-free-stuff watching crew didn’t make the Portugese Water Dog the top breed.

I love Goldens. Mine died nearly 3 years ago. What a great dog! Taught my kids and I a little about God’s unconditional love. I know everyone knows this, but I love the way d-o-g is g-o-d backwards.

Having seen photos of Dobermans with their tails undocked and ears uncropped, I’m inclined to agree. They look completely different that way.

Well, they did say popular, not best.

The English Mastiff is the best dog. All others are posers.

No way are Golden Retrievers #5! Obviously they did not poll Cedarburg, WI.

At least 1/3 of the dogs in Cedarburg are Goldens. They even have their own contingent in the 4th of July Parade! One year they arranged all the Goldens by order of color from light to dark and the puppies got to ride in wagons and strollers!

I just wish man’s best friend had a longer life cycle. They become such a close companion, yet we almost invariably out-live them; and it’s sad to lose your best friend every 10-12 years.

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get going without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too
busy to give you any time.
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than an poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no
prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics,
THEN, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.

We have Lhasa Apso’s (cousins of shih tzus I think) and I love how they don’t shed. My husband & daughter both have asthma so they’re perfect for us. :)

She may not come from a “popular” breed but I wouldn’t trade my Rhodesian Ridgeback for any other dog in the world.

Yeah they are good dogs. We also have a Maltese/Pomeranian mix named Nemo..guess people are not into Maltese doggies..Our shih tzu sheds like crazy, you see his fur all over the place. Time for him to go get a grooming but we prolong it as long as possible since here they have a placed called Sparky’s which charges 120 bucks for 2 dogs..don’t know if that is the going rate but its pretty expensive

Enjoy them, my FRiend. Truer and more loyal companions you will not find on this side.

If they are young enough to let you take a doggie brush and brush their teeth - please do it. That way they will get used to it, and it will just be a ritual you do as they get older. If you wait too long, they will fight it and you will have to take them to the vet to have their teeth cleaned.

It wasn’t until the end of my best friend’s life that we realized how poor his teeth had gotten. It may have contributed to his health problems - and I have regretted not addressing this every day for the past year.

I dearly miss my little buddy.

I'm not telling my Redbone Coonhound she's not on the list...she might try to tree the folks who conducted this poll just to put them in a more receptive mood for next year.

(No, I don't run her, she's a companion dog)

I suppose that Goldens’ pre-eminence have been diluted by the current poularity of GoldenPoos and GoldenDoodles. But who cares about shedding? Just decorate your house and choose your upholstery and clothes to match the dog!

Be thankful. AKC attention and/or mass appeal of a breed is not without its perils.

I have a Bullmastiff.

#6 Bulldogs (ancestral bull dog was the “Bull” in the Bullmastiff)

#7 Boxer (derived from the Bullmastiff)

What is a Redbone Coonhound? My son in SC has a dog that was given to him. We don’t know the breed. Some kind of tri-color hound that loves to “tree” the squirrels. She’s small — about 40 lbs and very cute. Because of allergies, my DIL will not allow the dog in the house. Makes me sad.

One of the worst days of my life when my black lab buddy, Bo, passed at almost 14 yo. I have a new buddy, Jed, another black lab. He is 4 years old and a fine friend. I suppose I will lose him too. Still, they are worth the trouble.

I would have to study the questionnaire and the poll sample. Most popular? Does it mean what most people have, or what most people would like to have. More shepards than chihuahuas? Back in the day of Bullet and Rin Tin Tin, but not since the reconquista. Gringo.
