Just curious as to what kind of dog you all have. I'm really eagar to get a dog once I get my first house, but I'm debating which kind would fit my lifestyle best. My last dog passed away from enemia this year... its really crazy how you can get so attached to a dog. I love 'em.

I'm really liking the Labrador Retriever... Not very rambunctious and incredibly loyal. Also, doesn't mind being around other dogs, which is a big thing for me.

Whats the word?

Labrador Retriever, chocolate brown. Hella strong for a 70 pound animal, great with people, highly intelligent.
If you get a dog, get a proper dog, not some freak-of-nature gerbil like mini-dog.

btw, don't get one unless there's someone around to take care of it.

Wife wants a pomeranien. I'm not convinced. I'm more of a cat person, but I figure if you're gonna get a dog, get a dog.

Once my house is done I want to get a Welsh Pembroke Corgi. (Like the one in Cowboy Bebop) They are squat little dogs, but are herders...so they're not just lap dogs. Or, possibly I'd get a Greyhound from Greyhound Rescue. I've heard they are awesome.

Check out what they look like here...
just a puppy...

I had three Rottweillers. As mean as they look, they behave like small dogs around their owners. I had these one specific Rottweiller that, whenever i would sit down in my backyard, she would jump to my lap. She just did not know how big she was. They are lovely. And they scare the hell out of anyone who comes close to you. They are very good with kids too, as long as they spend lots of time with the kids and are used to them. And they are like tanks. You could jump over a Rottweiller and he would feel nothing. I had this other Rott i used to wrestle with on the grass. He loved it.
And they don't require lots of care. Just brush them twice a week, a bath once or twice a month, and they're good.
But i don't recommend one unless you have a big house.

I wouldn't want to be seen with a pomeranien. Bad for reputation... :P
If you want a small dog, get a really ugly and mean one. Like a Boston Terrier, or a Pug. :blink:

Pugs are neither ugly nor mean! If I ever get a dog, I'll be a pug owner. I even have the name picked out--Lord Pugsley Barkins III.

I'm a cat guy, but my cats are like dogs. They greet me at the door, play fetch, walk outside on a leash, etc.

I meant ugly and mean in a good way. :blink: . I love them.


But my favorites, if i ever have a dog again, right now are the Basset Hound and the Bulldog. Or, if i have more space, a Labrador or even anoother Rottweiller.

I always think of a pug as one of those dogs, a hilton sister would walk around with it in her pocketbook...too girly for me...

Im a bulldog man myself. I would have one now, but they are rediculously expensive in NY, I have seen them in like florida for 700, but in NY, from a good breeder they can run 3500-4000 bucks...so Im gonna have to wait for my english bull.

But if you want a small dog, my fav is the Jack Russel Terrier, like Eddie from Frasier, those dogs are awsome and really smart. But they have a lot of ENERGY!

Oh shit!!! Sorry, it just jumped out in front of me...

Don't get any dog under 25 lbs. I'm not a big fan of purebreds either. They're expensive and always have expensive problems that come from the shallow end of the gene pool. Go to the local animal shelter and get an honest mutt. It will probably be smarter and healthier, and you'll be saving it from euthanasia. My brother in law has a pretty good technique for choosing a dog from the animal shelter: Go in front of the row of cages and yell "sit!" Only take one of the dogs who sits down. Obviously doesn't work with puppies, but there you have it.
