    An accidental blk poodle/beagle mix. Negative traits =not a one! Wonderful personality, loving ,obedient, gd w kids. And smart as could be and didn't shed. She looked like a Schnauzer, plain blackish gray and my son named her Spot. (?) We had her for nearly 15 yrs.

    I've always had spaniels.. and one rescue lab.. Socrates is a cockapoo.. and he's part spaniel, and poodle.. He doesn't shed like the spaniels did.. and he's very good natured like the spaniels.. I think next one I'd get, will be a little girl.. The boys are very protective, and it can be a disadvantage when living in a building..

    A wonderful pure white friend that was 3/4 Great Pyrenees and 1/4 Anatolian Shepard. A very smart, large, house dog about 150 lbs - very protective, very faithful -only fault was his habit of jumping fences just like a horse. When he was inside he was a couch potatoe and when he was outside no one came on the property. He was affectionate like a puppy and gentle as he could be with the family.

    I've had German Shepherds; different personalities. Loved them all. I don't have a dog right now. However, one day I was sitting on the ground in the front yard. A young female German Shepherd walked across the yard. She walked past me as I spoke to her, then she turned, walked over to me, gave me a lick on the cheek, and then walked off. I never seen her since. There was something special about that to me; don't know exactly what though.

    I have my son's dog living with me. He is a German Short Haired Pointer. Lots of hunting competition titles. Very talented in the hunting field. Has a huge English vocabulary. HOWEVER, he has ADHD, OCD, and I am pretty certain he has imaginary friends!!! He has taken it upon himself to "point" and rid the yard of grasshoppers! He is a goof ball!

    The best behaved dog I ever had was a curr mix named George. He was basically very lazy but loving. I had him for years when he showed up at my house with rope marks on his neck, heart worms and way underweight. He was very protective of his family. I had him for years, until he snuck out one morning and followed the kids to the bus and ended up hit by a car. His bad habits was he was a pillow hog, with bad breath and farted in his sleep!! So, he was in some ways like my exhusband, but in all other ways 1000 times better!!

    helovesme.. Gus is adorable!!

    I grew up with dogs. Beagles, golden retrievers, and rescue.

    The beagles were nice enough but as they aged, they got a little mean and snappy. Not fun for a 7 year old.

    I had Golden Retrievers from the time I was 7 until.. well.. now. They're my mom's favorite breed, but after what happened to our last two [losing one at age 6 to brain cancer/hip displaysia and one at age 9 to liver disease], she is afraid they are being too inbred. Goldens are absolutely wonderful and I hope to have goldens to share my life with again soon.

    But.. my personal favorite breed is rescue.

    My mom's last two goldens [the dark golden on the left with me, we lost in February to brain cancer, the other [lighter] is still doing very well at age 5!]

    I rescued a boxer/pit bull mix in 2000. She was the best dog I've ever had. She never did anything wrong. She never chewed, never dug, was extremely loyal. I think boxers are wonderful dogs. I had to put her down in November, 2010, and we got another boxer in February 2011. She's very sweet, doesn't cause any problems, and is great with kids.

    I've had some great pups, nearly all pure-bred poodles until I finally figured out that, if we bred them and they stayed at our house until they were eight weeks old, they never left! I think my all-time favorite was a silver named Fibbre (he NEVER told the truth about anything!) who has been gone for a few years now; my second favorite one is a rescue part-poodle and part ? named DJ....I tease the kids all the time and tell them that my husband lives on in DJ...really, it's uncanny. He guards me as though I were the next queen of the world and will NOT allow me any contact with the "strange" males in my life: he's got the poor UPS guy and the Fed Ex guy so cowed they won't bring the packages in to the house, they leave them on the porch. And if (Heaven forbid!) a strange man happens to come in (usually a GS he hasn't seen in awhile...) he lays on the floor between the fellow and me and keeps his eyes on him. So yes, I have had it all...from pure-breeds to rescues and I have loved them all! If we weren't bound by county requirements, I'd have twenty more than I have just to keep them safe. And by the way, DJ tops out at an astounding 17 pounds...! Gotta love them pups!
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!
