If you have dog(s) what kind do you have? What have been your favorites? Why?

We had a Westie and Scottie when I was very young. Next we had a Rottie X Aussie, and then a Lab X ?, and now my dog is also a Lab x ?. I love the Lab attitude, they're very sweet, very people dogs. Our Rottie X Aussie was incredibly intelligent, and easy to train. And our terriers were just great dogs. I think I love my Lab mutts the best though.

I don't have any dogs right now, since I've been married, but before I was married and lived with my parents we had two dogs, Rocky and Teddy. Rocky passed away couple of years ago and Teddy is still with my dad.

This is Rocky, he is a Border Collie Mix. He was so smart and such a good dog.

This is Teddy, he's a Siberian Husky. OMG, he's the most loving dog ever. I miss him to bits since I don't live close anymore. I love Huskies, they are adorable.

I guess my favourite breed would be Golden Retriever (what's not to like!) but when we decide to get a dog later, we'll be adopting a shelter dog, and hopefully we'll be able to find a Lab or a Retriever mix

I have two dogs right now, a dachsand something mix and a pit bull. I love both my dogs very much, but we have decided the only dogs we will own from now on are rescued pit bulls. They are just incredibly sweet, loyal dogs who love to love you and the breed needs to be saved! Plus they are so smart and super cute!

Having owned my first English Setter for just less than 2 years now, I will forever be a setter owner. I LOVE his personality and hard-working attitude in the field.

He's such a loving, intelligent dog!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

We've had 3 Boxers and 1 German Shepherd (that we've owned personally) and one Border Collie that we rescued on the side of the road at 6 weeks old, raised for 8 months and gave to a rescue after she was healthy.

Our first Boxer and our current GSD have by far been my two favorites.

Currently we have a sheltie. I had a sheltie growing up and I just love their energy and loyalty. Once we get a house were dying to get another dog, probably a rescue.

My mom has two Goldens that I grew up with until I got my own place, Dakota and Starr. Dakota is my baby and I fought and begged my mom to let me take him with me, but she wouldn't let me...but that's ok because I live two minutes away

My entire family has dogs and when we get together we all bring our dogs..my inlaws have a pug and Irish setter, my BIL/SIL have a pug, and my other BIL/SIL have a pug and cockapoo

Wrigley Bear

Thank you Tasha_Mae for my beautiful siggy!

I used to not like dogs at all. I was always scared of them even if they were tiny, but two years ago, my BIL was going off to college and needed to find a homefor his puppy which is a dachshund/Jack Russell terrier mix. My DH was wanting a dog and this one was free so I said ok. I fell in love immediately and he's completely changed my view of dogs. I'm now a dog person. His name is JJ and he's just the cutest thing with the best personality. And it's funny bc he was going to be my DH's dog, but he's mine. He loves me more lol.

I love my rescued greyhound. I also used to be terrified of that, but having cleo and being around all of my IL's crazy labs has changed that
