What Are YOUR Favorite Dog Breeds? RESULTS!

Happy Saturday, y'all! Yesterday I asked you all what your favorite dog breeds are and why...you all left us some interesting comments, and you'll get a chance to look at them today, along with my own three favorite dog breeds!

First off, this is what Reilly and Denny's mom, proud parent of Blogville's favorite cow spot dogs, had to say!

"I think the favorite dog breed most people have is - is the one they currently have. I have all breeds of dogs over the years - and I loved each and everyone of them for different reasons. And yes - I even had three miniature dachshunds 2 smooth coats and 1 wired haired :) I have also had a Basenji, a Doberman, a blue heeler, and a number of poodle crosses. Loved them all and they were all my favorites :)"

Nicely said! Those words are very true, and I'm sure you can relate if you're also a dog parent!

Y'all know Mabel, Hazel, and Bailey back at Idaho Pug Ranch, right? Well, their momma left us a comment, too!

"Many years ago I had Labrador Retrievers - wonderful dogs. But we have had pugs now for more than 20 years, my absolute favorite breed."

Gotta love them Labs! They're an all around versatile breed. Pugs are so sweet and gentle, and they're quite the cuties!

Anyway, here's what Mitch and Molly, our Airedale friends, had to say about their favorite breeds!

"Of course our favorite breed is the Airedale Terrier but mom and dad have also had a Bulldog and a Springer Spaniel and St Bernards. They are all wonderful breeds!"

I love those breeds, too!

You know Dory, our Lhasa Apso pal, right? Well, here's what her mama had to say!

"It's sooooo hard to choose a favorite. We would have to go with Lhasa Apso's first, Dory and Bilbo are Lhasa's and were the perfect "first dogs" for my husband. They don't shed and don't bark that much and while Bilbo is very independent, Dory is the friendliest dog I have ever met. Rescues are our next favorite breed, although sometimes needy, they are usually eager to please and I know Jakey is soooo smart and loving. Shih Tzu's are next. Arty doesn't shed much, and is VERY smart and eager to learn :-)"

You gotta love Dory and her pals!

This is what Ciara and Lightning, our Husky pals, had to say about their mom's favorite breeds.

"Well, you know we have to say we are Mom's favorite breed - Siberian Huskies. Intelligent, loyal, challenging to train:) But Mom has had wire haired terriers, Goldens, cockapoos, mutts, shelties. She thinks all breeds have their special reasons for one human to like them better than another. If she had her way, she would probably have two of every breed possible :)"

Well said, fellas!

Here's what Mark Muller, Easy the Weimaraner's dad, had to tell us!

"I'm with Reilly and Denny, we love the breed the most what lives with us :o) our #1 is the Weimaraner (of course lol) #2 is the siberian husky, because two of them lived with us for many years, #3 is the foxterrier, our furst family dog :o) all dogs are wonderful and without dogs this welt would be a boring place :o)"

Those are great answers!

Here's what Karyn Yardis had to say!

"I love Berger Picards, Huskies, and mutts! I love the Berger Picards because they are so cute and sweet! Huskies because they are so beautiful and have those gorgeous eyes! And mixed breeds because they are all different. My favorite mutts are the same ones you love....Katie and Rocky! :)"

Gotta love them mixed breeds!

Thanks to everyone who left us their input!

Now it's time to learn about my favorite breeds!

"My three favorite breeds would have to be the Bloodhound, the Dachshund, and the Pharaoh Hound. Watching Nathan the Bloodhound win Best in Show at the National Dog Show in 2014 sparked my passion for the breed. I had never seen a dog show before, and I don't think I had ever seen a Bloodhound before. They are a great breed and are super sweet.

Just a few months ago, the Dachshund was just another breed to me. But ever since I acquired my Dachshund, Christmas, I've been a huge Dachshund person since! I enjoy handling my Dachshund at dog shows and teaching him new tricks. Though some Dachshunds are on the stubborn side, they are actually very eager to please and open to learning if you find what motivates them...usually it's food!

Lastly, I love the Pharaoh Hound because of the Egyptian heritage it holds. When you look at this breed, you can definitely tell that it's one of the oldest breeds! Pharaoh Hounds are known to be aloof by nature, and very sweet and gentle. I've met the same Pharaoh Hound at every dog show I've been to, and she's a super sweet dog and very loving!"

Again, thanks for leaving your input, my friends!

Here's a cute photo of Christmas and Katie.

I had to leash them because they wouldn't cooperate!

Enjoy your day!

  2. Our mom read an article in a magazine many, many years ago about Bloodhounds and how they are sweet and a wonderful family dog. She did consider owning one but they're very large dogs!
    That was fun, Christmas. Thank you☺

    1. No problem! Blogville is great isn't? Oh, Bloodhounds are large! Sometimes they also aren't good with children just because they're big sweethearts who think they are playful lap dogs! :) I like to play around with Robin's little sister, but I'm a little guy, so no harm's done! Us Dachshunds think we're big dogs!

      Your Dachshund pal,
      Christmas

    1. I didn't know that about Reilly and Denny's mom either! Every dog has an owner...UNLESS YOU'RE A DACHSHUND! YOU OWN PEOPLE AND YOU RULE THE WORLD! I agree with you about those tree squirrels...let's not even go there. BOL!

      Your Dachshund pal,
      Christmas

    1. Hiya, Ruby! It's Christmas here. I've actually read your blog for quite some time! It was only yesterday that I realized I WASN'T ACTUALLY FOLLOWING IT! OH MY DOG I FREAKED OUT! I immediately followed it! You are a very interesting Airedale! I never knew you Airedales drooled. I never drool! Not that I'm an Airedale or anything...do you know Mitch and Molly the Airedales? They are bow wow awesome dogs! Off to check out today's post on your blog! Forgot to this morning...a high profile Dachshund like me is always busy, and sometimes I sadly forget to check out all my friends' blogs!

      Your Dachshund pal,
      Christmas

  8. What a great survey. I of course think the best breed is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Thank you for stopping by Sand Spring Chesapeakes. You are adorable. Have a great night.

  9. I love bloodhounds too and my mom grew up with the dachshund of their neighbors... I bet if we had a blogville-westminster or a blogville-crufts we only had BIS's ... we would need a giant winners podium :o)

  10. Hi there! I've read many posts about dog, and I can tell that yours is very valuable. People look for many things in the dogs that they want to get for their home. Many look for a faithful watch dog, others look for a dog that can help them around the home with certain tasks. And there are some who just want a sweet canine companion to keep them company.
