Dogs I Like. Dogs I Hate. From The Bedlington Terrier To The Mastiff.

Dogs I would never own:

Lhasa Apso (Yeah right. And I’m going to start wearing dresses)
Schnauzer (I’ve never met one I’ve liked. Always out of control)
Dalmatian (one of the dumbest dogs)
Bichon Frise (gayer than poodles)
Chinese Crested (remind me of dirty rats with skin conditions)
Bedlington Terrier (Have you ever seen these freaks?? I mean come on now! Look at it. How do you walk down the street with this thing?):

Dogs I WOULD get:

Akita (One of my neighbor’s used to own two. Very loyal)
Australian Shepherd (cool medium sized smart dogs)
Brittany Spaniel
German Shepherd
German Shorthaired Pointer
Golden Retriever
Labrador Retriever (Had one that died. Bingo. Best dog ever)

Honorable mentions:

Boxer (too drooly)
Doberman (only if I could find one that I could trust)
Irish Terrier (maybe)
English Mastiff (don’t live long enough and too big but my brother has one that I like*)
Newfoundland (too big)
Rhodesian Ridgeback (would need to learn a bit more about them first)
Bernese Mountain Dog (too big)

* the photo above is my brother’s dog. The picture was taken when she was about 9 months old.

Shih Tzu. HATE THEM. Uggggly and stupid and annoying. Also any lame made-up breed (MUTT) that some stupid suburbanite was conned into paying $800+ for (i.e. Labradoodle, Cockapoo and so on...)

Those made up ones make me so angry.

Dr Zibbs said...

TC - I like the Labradoodle but hate the name! And hate all the mixed breed nonsense as if it's a real breed.

Dr Zibbs said...

TC - and they charge $800 for a mutt? They probably do.

Gage1 said...

looks like $800 is a bargain! Check out this pompous BS!

$2500??? BAHAHAHA at anyone who pays that!! These dogs used to be accidents when Billy let Spot out of the yard and he humped Mr. Smith's poodle...

Dr Zibbs said...

TC - Haha!!! That's for a "multigenerational" AUSTRALIAN Labradoodle. There's some value there.

A Burmese Mountain dog is what I am getting for my next dog. Right now, I've got the devil cleverly disguised as a Mini American Eskimo. I've never known a dog to be soooo smart but so dumb at the same time.

Dr Zibbs said...

Tristacio - a devil.

I loved Rhodesian Ridgebacks until I worked for a vet, and even then, I thought the dogs were cute, but the two I remember well (one @ the vet, and one my friend actually owned) - dumb. DUMB. Also, selfish. Didn't really give a crap about anyone unless they had food.
We had a boxer - awesome dog - and a Welsh Springer Spaniel growing up - also - fantastic dog. Bad thing about Boxers - they don't shed terribly, but they have the prickly hair when they do. The spaniel had silky hair and didn't shed much at all. I love Labs but HATE all the shedding.
Anyway, I like medium to big dogs. Small dogs are just annoying.

Dr Zibbs said...

Sybil they're dumb huh? Good to know.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

I have 3 dogs too many..

A pug: she farts and snorts and barks at the slightest little thing.

A Jack Russell: beside being total alpha male, he is the smartest dog I have ever known.

A boxer: Drools? Yup. Sheds? Check. But he's the sweetest big lug going.

I love them all even though they drive me bonkers.

Dominica said...

LOL cracking up here :

I once owned
a) a boxer - too drooly indeed and farted all the time (was ok to blame the dog when some1 of my family farted)
b) terrier - crazy, hated doorbells

Would like to own :

a) shiba inu (smaller version of Akita, in fact it's my daughter who wants one)
b) Cavalier King Charles - for me, yes I am posh !
c) Jack Russel for hubby when he retires (to get him out of the house so I have a minute or 20 to relax haha- we would name him Spike)

Would never be caught dead with :
a) shitsu - little f*cker with stupid face and 1 had bitten India when she was small !
b) Dalmatian - beautiful but the hardest breed to train. In fact - all dogs are pretty stupid compared to cats ..
c) Yorkshire terrier - they stink out of their nozzles and it's a typical dog for ladies and gents wearing leopard print outfits, so a NO NO for me !
d) chihuahua : veto from hubby

Dr Zibbs said...

Candy I could maybe do a jack russell. Probably only one oof the small dogs I like.

Dominica- a king charles. Haha. Not sure if id like one of those but bever saw one up close and in person.

Dominica said...

Maybe I'd change my mind concerning a Yorkshire cos leopard print shoes are in fashion ! :^)

Gage1 said...

I like Weimaraners and Viszlas by the way. But I have no intention of getting a dog anytime soon, what a pain.

Dr Zibbs said...

Dominica - Yeah. Best to take shoes into account for all animal purchases.

TC - I like them too but someome to;d me they were dumb. Not sure if that's correct or not.

Are you sure that second one is a dog? Maybe it's a hybrid sheep/dog. Get it? Sheepdog...

Eccentric Owl said...

I have a Cocker Spaniel - it's a moron.

Eccentric Owl said...

Does the Belgian Terrier have little wheels under it feet and you pull it along behind you until you hit a crack in the pavement and it falls over? My sister had one when we were kids.
