“I’m a cat person.”

I'm a cat person, but I think Scottish Terriers are cute.

I like labs. Licorice or chocolate. Right now I have chocolate female who has trained me well. She's better than I deserve. "If it flies it dies and the brown dog retrieves it." Right now woodcock are migrating through. Shoot one or two and pluck them, do not skin. Draw the innards out and thoroughly rinse. Put back in cavity and put all on grill, indirect heat to the max. Check and pull them off when the juices just run pink, absolutely no more. Serve the innards on garlic texas toast points as a side (trust me on this one). Cheap bottle of red wine. Done. That's all I know about dogs.

"Cheap bottle of red wine."

Yup, totally understand. Had to be slightly inebriated myself fist time I ate raccoon. And opossum. They couldn't get me drunk enough to eat grilled coyote . .

"You're dog supremacists."

Er, as supposed to what?

riverdrifter 5 years, 11 months ago

Supposed, opposed, whatever. I'm tanked.

How can you pick a favorite. My favs are the ones I have right now. An English Setter, who is as sweet and crazy as the day is done, and a King Charles Cavelier. He is, well, just funny. Live is just not the same with out a dog.

Ever notice how some of the homeless downtown will have a dog for 3 months or so then have a new one? My thought is they get a cute dog that people will feed and watch as the dog plumps up. When the dog plumps up like a ballpark hotdog, they cook it and get a new one and start over. Suge Knight is my fav dog, yo!

A Browniedog. Tastes good with mustard and a tax cut.

When I was in my forties a young, non-productive male offspring of a female canine challenged me to a sparring event. I whacked that punk with a 2x4 behind his ear and sent him home.

I sure wish the posters on here could stick with the question. That said my favorite dog is and always has been a Samoyed. My husband's favorite is the English Mastiff. That is why we have a four year old named Bigfoot and two Mastiff / Anatolian Shepard mixes that are just 7 months.

I ain't never had no purple drank but I do know what a red herring is. Stick with the question.

Someone else's. Don't dig on dogs, man, they are stinky and they poop everywhere. I'll pet someone's dog if it approaches me, but otherwise, I don't want their hair clinging to my clothes, I don't want their slobber on my shoes or their dog funk on my person. Ick. Not to mention, I'll be damned if I'm going to pay to own a creature who's feces I have to pick up from out in the yard. No thanks.

Dogs are really people dressed up in a dog costume.

Julie Jacob 5 years, 11 months ago

Keeshond all the way! Most people think "gah, all that hair!" but don't realize that it's much easier to take care of than it looks and it doesn't stick everywhere like short dog hair.

RoeDapple 5 years, 11 months ago

YES! Betsy is our second Kee, both rescued.

Pete Kennamore 5 years, 11 months ago

Old English Mastiff (Old English Mastiff) Only 23 days until our newest family member, Amos Moses, comes home from the breeder! He's a fawn OEM that is the nephew of the current National Champion Mastiff.

Cocker spaniels, preferably black, but any color will do. Cute, smart and loving.

ebyrdstarr 5 years, 11 months ago

I'm quite partial to my little red one. But, dang, those eyes! I miss the days of being able to leave my house without feeling guilty when those sad, sad spaniel eyes realize she doesn't get to come along.

Nelson Harley Moonbeam, my precious friend that passed away three years ago, topped out at 232 lbs.

You find other people being unemployed humorous? Just looking for clarification; exactly what part of their bad situation tickles you the most? The fact that they might not be able to pay their bills, the fact that they may have children that they are having a hard time feeding? What exactly is it about other people having a bad time in life that makes you want to LOL so much? Or maybe you're just a sad pathetic little puke who has no real life or moral fiber and feels it necessary to belittle others' poor positions so you can feel better about being an internet troll?

Getoveryourself 5 years, 11 months ago

Chrissakes, come off it. Yes, the homeless situ is bad news. However, that neither explains asking four of them (not buying the musician shtick) what their favorite dog is nor why this last-minute circle jerk by some LJ World flunky is deemed newsworthy. After you get done slapping yourself on the back for sticking up for the homeless on an internet forum, close your Macbook and stick another "My child's an honor student at blah blah blah" on your Prius.

If you're responding to me, a: I've never been a huge advocate for the homeless and we weren't discussing homelessness, anyway. I am however an advocate for not laughing at others' misfortune as I find that tacky and rude. Obviously you have no problem with that sort of behavior, it just gives us a little more insight as to who YOU are. b: I don't use a Macbook or drive a Prius, so please stop thinking you can lump everyone together and label them pesky liberal hippies. I do have tact and manners, though, maybe you should get some. It might make you less of a douchebag and make it a little easier for those of us around you to stomach your face.

I always dreamed about one day having a grandcat, but I ended up with a grandpuppy,(coco) and now I wouldn't trade him. He is a cheerful little mutt, cute, sweet, a little hyper.

haha RED DOG.. There ya go. ;-)

But anyway, shepherds are GREAT. Love my shepherd mix. Goldens.

Peaty Romano 5 years, 11 months ago

Me too :) I only use to own Labrador Retrievers which I also love. But I got my first Welsh Pembroke Corgi and they are fantastic companions. I know they are small but they really are big dogs at heart.

mojodogg 5 years, 11 months ago

Great Pyrenees!! Emphasis on Great!!!

Cait McKnelly 5 years, 11 months ago

That's just cruel. You're a mean person :(

rbwaa 5 years, 11 months ago

definitely not a lab - I got bitten by one and had to take rabies shots - the good thing is that now I can bite anyone else and THEY won't have to take rabies shots ; )

rmushrush 5 years, 11 months ago

Pitbulls....the sweetest, most misunderstood dogs out there.

Cait McKnelly 5 years, 11 months ago

+1!!!!! When will people get that it's not the dog, it's the owner?

Alceste 5 years, 11 months ago

German Short Haired Pointers or Vizslas

jd 5 years, 11 months ago

English Bull Terrier, the dog in Target commercials, Babe in the City, Patton, The Incredible Journey (the original one), etc.

Chicago! With a big dill and onions and peppers and.....

I'm going to the store.

Cait McKnelly 5 years, 11 months ago

Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Good personality, low allergen, the Queen loves them and the cutest dog ever in Anime! Ein dog forever! (OK, I'm showing my '90's pop influences.)

Matt Schwartz 5 years, 11 months ago

dogs that fart, and then look at their backside with surprise.\
