In my lifetime, I’ve had numbers one, two and three in that list. I’ve also had a mutt (combo of two and three) and now have a Labradoodle (combo of three and eight, standard poodle.)
All GREAT dogs, magnificent in their own ways, highly intelligent, family friendly and easily trainable, though the German Shepherds take the most work.
Their names were Jeepers (German Shepherd) Sanford (Golden Retriever, nicknamed Bonehead) Jerry (Shepherd Golden Retriever mix) and now Teddy, a Labradoodle.
Each one was an example of mans best friend.
OMG, how could I forget my first dog, “Licker.” Named such because he gave everyone a lick “kisses.” Family already had him when I was born, he died when I was six or seven. What a great dog for a young boy.
