Mine are German shepherds I had two before lady and Amber the first Caesar died suddenly at two years old after major surgery and the other khan lived to the grand age of 13 that's a good age for a German Shepard. I love them as they are so intelligent and seem to know what your thinking and they just love to work

Which one?;)

Well, I have a cavalier now of course

And I had a Cocker Spaniel for 13 years but she passed away in February - she was a really beautiful dog and she had such a nice nature.

I love Border Collies - I think they're just so smart and just generally really good dogs.

And Labradors and Golden Retrievers just appeal to me for some reason.

I think with the others there would be WAY too much shedding and grooming and extreme scent following, etc, so although I like them I'd have a preference for owning dogs in my top 5.

1. Cavalier (no surprise there)
2. Pomeranians (mostly because of looks -- I've never had one)
3. Poodles (wouldn't want the grooming, but grew up with 4 and LOVED them)
4. Papillons
5. Chinese Crested (powder puff only)
6. Yorkies
7. Shelties
8. Long-haired chihuahuas
9. Boxers (too big for me, but I just think they are very regal and friendly)

In general, I tend to like pointy noses more than flat, long hair rather than short, and most definitely small rather than large.

Good thread idea!

1 Caveliers
2Cocker spaniel
3 springer spaniel
4 any spaniel

:lol: well that about covers it for spaniels...

Also Jessica I thought you deliberately only put cavaliers. :lol:

Of breeds I'd like enough to want to own:

1) cavaliers
2) Great Pyrenees (breed I grew up with)
3) certain mixes
4) English setters

When I eventually move to a house with a garden and if it is large enough, I may get a Pyrenees again.

There are other breeds I like -- Tibeten spaniels and terriers, for example. certain JRTs, blue merle border collies, goldens, red & white Irish setters... but probably not enough to own one. I'd have to look at my dog encyclopedias to remember what I like! :lol: I like French bulldogs too. Oh and I like those untrimmed schnauzers, like Jen's Gus. I'd steal him if I had the chance. :cool: There are lots of dogs that fall in the category of dogs I like looking at, but wouldn;t own. :)

6. Old English Sheep Dog ( With a full time groomer and a much larger house)
7. One of those hairless mexican dogs...so ugly but so darn cute too!
8. Wheaten
9. Maltese
10. ( and Ill never get one, just think they are cute but in no way, would actually purchase for reasons we all know) Puggles

3. Bernese Mountain Dog
4. Bull Mastiff
5. Irish Wolfhound
6. Flat Coated Retriever
7. Bloodhound
8. Alaskan Malamute

I love Scout, but anybody that has ever owned, or has known a Newfoundland knows just how sweet and lovable they are. I love big dogs, but wanted a small dog too. When i started looking for a small dog I wanted one that had a similar personality of the Newfoundland. The more I read about Cavaliers the more I liked them. The are great little dogs, but the Newfoundland has stolen my heart. :luv:
