    I see a pattern here in my preferences...lol. Funny when I joined Chaz it was almost all sight hounds. But I've discovered I'm much much more of a herding/sporting type breeds person.

    Probably not surprising but mine's half the same...except take out a few to add more sporting dogs:

    Replace Papillon w/ Flat-Coated Retriever
    Replace ACD with Golden Retriver (very specific field lines)
    Change Belgian Shepherds to just Malinois
    Eliminate Sheltie, Aussie, and Markiesje without replacement (or maybe sub in Pyr Shepherd or Koolie)

    No pics atm, sorry.

    I recognize that one! :p

    I forgot Icelandics... Hmmm they're pretty close to being tied with markiesje and kooikers. Would probably help if I could meet all the breeds.

    There's a breeder within a 10 hour drive of me... Who's having a litter in May... Must focus on "Future JRT".

    Not all of these are breeds I'd be interested in owning (ATM there are only a few in my top running), but breeds that I like the look of and would like to meet some individuals of some day.

    1) English Shepherd
    [​IMG]
    (Go figure - the first one I really liked on a google search, and she's a maternal 1/2 sister to Quinn's dam. Think I have a type?)
    2) German Shepherd
    [​IMG]
    3) Australian Shepherd
    [​IMG]
    4) Border Collie
    [​IMG]
    5) Australian Koolie (I wonder who this is thanks to?! :p)
    [​IMG]
    6) Havanese (Totally breaking my herding dog trend here but a family friend breeds them and OMG best snugglers ever)
    [​IMG]
    7) Chihuahua
    [​IMG]
    8) Belgian Shepherd, particularly Groenendaels. I just really, really want to meet one.
    [​IMG]
    9) Borzoi. Again, totally not suited to be but I think they're the most gorgeous dogs and really want to meet one.
    [​IMG]
    10) I can't think of at 10th (although I'll probably remember in an hour while I'm at work helping a customer or something, LOL) so here's another English Shepherd.

    I need to meet an ES so I can figure out how I mesh with one so we need to meet. The biggest thing that holds me back is you saying Quinn isn't interested in toys.

    That's Traveler's great grandfather Ted and was the dog that made me fall even harder for the breed

    I saw the Toolalla in the URL and decided I had to use that picture, LOL.

    Quinn has become absolutely frisbee and ball crazy (more frisbee though). She hands it to me and drops to the ground and absolutely shakes with excitement. Still has a good off switch though and doesn't bother me with it if I don't initiate play. She is definitely less goofy than Traveler though from what I've seen - he seems very happy go lucky. ****, getting yelled at to leave, I'll finish this later!

    I know lol... I wonder how Mia's breeder would feel about shipping a pup up to Canadaland... They're so tiny that when i rent somewhere no one would notice the papillon among my pug and jrt... right? right?!

    I met a borzoi PTSD service dog once. The dog was really amazing! I guess they make good service dogs for people with PTSD because they remain calm when their owner is distressed.

    Here are mine...

    1. Maltese
    [​IMG]

    2. Chinese Crested
    [​IMG]

    3. Standard Poodle
    [​IMG]

    4. Papillon
    [​IMG]

    5. Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier
    [​IMG]

    6. Bichon Frise
    [​IMG]

    7. Westie
    [​IMG]

    8. Italian Greyhound
    [​IMG]

    9. Pomeranian
    [​IMG]

    10. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
    [​IMG]

    Yeah.....I really lean toward toy dogs.

    I love these threads! And mine change all the time!

    1. Pit Bull (not any specific breed, just a shelter guy/gal)
    [​IMG]

    2. Doberman (not sure I really have the personality to own one of these guys, maybe a rescue or down the road when I learn to be tougher owner, lol!)
    [​IMG]

    3. Jack Russell Terrier (yes, I stole this pic from Dekka, as I love the look of her JRTs)
    [​IMG]

    4. Australian Cattle Dog (again, not sure I have the personality for them, but I love them)
    [​IMG]

    5. Pembroke Welsh Corgi (these guys are on and off the list almost every day, it would have to be a very specific type of dog)
    [​IMG]

    6. English Mastiff (actually found some nice looking, athletic ones, but they all seem to live in Alberta!)
    [​IMG]
    (Though that guy is from Cali)

    7. Border Collie
    [​IMG]

    8. GSD (this is a new one for me, but I've seen/met some that were just flooring. would probably be from a shelter/rescue and I like the white ones too)
    [​IMG]

    9. Whippet (smooth, or a LHW)
    [​IMG]

    10. Greyhound
    [​IMG]

    Ask me tomorrow and you will probably get some different ones. 10 is not enough.

    I think my theme is like... long faces, leaner bodies, and then some dogs on the list are just because I really got into the breeds from various chazzers. I would say the first 5 are more or less in order- the second 5 isn't really in order. I will probably only ever own border collies (although would love a papillon some day), but these are the breeds I enjoy the 'thought' of- which includes look, temperament, etc. Also, it includes almost zero retrievers... I like the look of retrievers, and I loved my lab growing up- but the retriever personality is generally just noooot for me so I didn't include many (or any I don't think).

    1. Border Collie

    [​IMG]

    2. Ibizan Hound

    [​IMG]

    3. Sheltie

    [​IMG]

    4. Whippet

    [​IMG]

    5. Long haired whippet

    [​IMG]

    6. Papillons (Had to post this adorable puppy)

    [​IMG]

    7. Long Haired Chi

    Particularly this guy or Romeo...

    [​IMG]

    8. Smooth Collie

    [​IMG]

    9. Australian Cattle Dogs

    [​IMG]

    10. Vizla

    Me thinks you need an Attila doggy. ^_^

    Labrador Retriever (of course):
    [​IMG]

    Spanish Mastiff:
    [​IMG]

    Rottweiler:
    [​IMG]

    Tibetan Mastiff:
    [​IMG]

    Neapolitan Mastiff (if I can find one that doesn't look like a hippo, can actually move, and has had health clearences...):
    [​IMG]

    That's only five, but those are the only breeds I'm actually considering in the future.

    Tons of other breeds that I love and admire, but most likely will not own.

    Great Danes, APBTs, Basset Hounds, Alaskan Malamutes, Ibizan Hounds, Pharaoh Hounds, Dogue de Bordeaux, Shih Tzus, German Shepherds...I could go on. :p

    That really makes me happy! They seem like such good overall dogs to have around, I like the versatility they seem to have from what you say and the work ethic

    Looking forward to you finishing when you aren't being yelled at :rofl1:

    Belgian Malinois
    [​IMG]
    Golden Retriever (very specifically field lines)
