Top Dogs!

Ok, so there hasn't really been much change since last year... except that bulldogs got bully and pushed the Schnauzers out of the top 10...

well boxers are on there but we don't like to see that. It usually means more backyard breeders and bad examples of boxers.

Once again, I'm disappointed not to see Belgian Butt-Sniffing Hound on the list. Still, I remain ever-hopeful that the AKC one day will wake up and smell the liversnaps.

Nice to see labs and goldens up near the top. Although it does bring in more backyard breeders and puppy mills.

I'm thinking about getting a golden retriever this summer (after my lab goes to guide dog school) and hopefully can find a reputable breeder.

What? No Boston Terriers?

Well, you tell Opie not to worry about not making the list, because if Bostons weren't on it then they obviously are blind fools.
