Top 5 Other Breeds I Love…

1. The German Shepherd.  Intelligent, protective, gentle, noble, and heroic.  An amazing breed that, similar to the golden retriever,  has been over-commercialized.  Yes, they shed.  I don’t care!

2. The Greyhound.  I would love to own a greyhound.  Specifically, I would love to rescue a retired racing greyhound.  This is still on my bucket list.  There is just something about that long nose and those beady eyes!  They also don’t seem to be a problem in the shedding department.

3. The Newfoundland.  Perhaps it is because I am Canadian, but these dogs are like Nannys, or lifeguards.  A very gentle family pet. If only they didn’t drool so much.  Actually, I could live with this!

4.  The Doberman.  Another gentle giant. Excellent with children, and (I think) very little shedding for this negatively exploited breed.  Tucker’s best friend is a doberman.  My daughters’ have a male named Fletch at their dad’s who sometimes gets to romp with Tucker.

5.  The Rottweiler.  A “doberman on steroids”  Why wouldn’t I want to own one of these big babies?  Look at that face!

As you can see, I am partial to the large breeds.  I have nothing against Pit bulls, but have never had the pleasure of actually interacting with one (they are presently banned here in Ontario.)  A boxer is another great breed.  Oh, there are so many!!

Blue Jays trade: Will Ontario’s pit bull ban prompt Mark Buehrle to spurn Jays?
