    Westminster - your favorite?

    I am watching the Westminster Dog Show. Anyone else watching?

    Which dog is your favorite? Or dogs?

    We used to have St Bernards, so I always love them, but I always love to see the Clumber Spaniels. I would love to have one of them! I guess I love to see all of the dogs. They are all so beautiful and cute!

    Miniature Old English Sheep dogs, or West Highland Terriers, Bichon Friese. I grew up with Boxers, so I love them too.
    Almost forgot, Shetland Sheep Dogs.

    I had a St. Bernard 40 years ago. They had 2 litters to pick from. I have had 3 farm dogs, min. schnauzer, 4 rat terriers and a min pin now. I just love all dogs and I love watching dog shows.

    We don't get to see too many dog shows....but I love nature/animals and couldn't imagine life without my furred and feathered friends. I especially like the sight hounds....Greyhounds, Wolfhounds, Lurchers...the really old breeds. Over the last few years I have been drawn to the spitz type as well...Chows, Akitas, Malamutes. Don't think I'll probably end up with a purebreed anything. When there's a space to fill there's always some kind of mixed breed, disaster area in need of a loving home.....something my husband just doesn't understand, but seems to accept.

    My son loved that Comodore (sp?). I think the West Highland Terriers are beautiful!! Haven't seent he show yet but programmed my tv to tape it. Is it over? We just got a rescue Bassett and a mixed Bassett. New to us, they are great and keep us so entertained.

    I love dogs with lots of hair. Old english sheep dogs, komondore, even collies.
    In reality I will never have any other than rescue mutts again

    I love the hound group- every one of the breeds! But since I have a cairn terrier, the terrier group is always my favorite. Today I'll use my computer to tune in to the live feed of the cairn judging and then I'll watch the scotties being judged an hour later because we are on a waiting list for a scotty puppy. The clothes washing and quilting schedule for the day is planned around those events!

    Hi.
    Sorry to barge in on the discussion but I had a question that someone may be able to answer.
    Does anyone know the breed of dog in one of the Fido commercials? There are several dogs...afghan, poodle etc. The one I like.....to me, he looks like an old man...... like a whiskered country gentleman.
    I googled dog images but didn't see any dog that looked like it.

    Not sure about your whiskered Fido dog but I am in love with Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. As I was afraid of dogs for years (was badly bitten by an Afghan) this is a big step for me. Two weeks ago, Molly (my avatar) became a Canadian champion and is the first black and tan in Canada to have points towards her grand championship. My daughter has not shown in the States yet but maybe Westminster is on her list some day.

    I loved the sheep dog, told my sweetie it was a winner and sure enough. I am a big german shephard lover, my best fur baby and companion is a shephard, but for some reason I didn't care for the one in the show. He seemed to walk funny to me and the coloring and markings were not very pretty, IMHO.

    We have had three bassets so I was thrilled that the basset placed second in the hound group. They are such loveable dogs, but after having a lab I don't think we will have any more bassets. My DH always says you can teach a basset today and have to re-teach him tomorrow. They are such big sweeties. Love all the dogs. Looking forward to tonight.

    My favorite purebred is the OESD. I have had two females. Runners up would be the Irish Wolfhound and West Highland White Terrier. That being said, if I ever adopt another dog, it will definitely be a rescue dog. My mixed breed dog Stitches (see my avatar), was the most intelligent, affectionate gentle soul. We lost him this past September, two weeks shy of his 18th birthday.

    One look at my avatar should answer this question - undoubtly - I love French Bulldogs - I have 3 and they are our world - since its just me and hubby at home - they provide us with unlimited entertainment and love.

    I love toy poodles. I haven't watched the show in a couple years. I really like any small hairy dog. My avatar Cookie is a Chihuahua, I believe I saved her life. She is smart but, only works well in a one pet family. I have three cats, one won't go anywhere near her. The other two tolerate her. I had the cats years before her. Over the years I had four toy poodles and one mixed breed. If I live long enough I will go back to toy poodles.

    I have hand raised my little girl since she was 8 hours old, she is now 10 years old and she is my 95 pound baby. She is a Japanese Akita, and she does believe she is human. So this is my way of telling you who my favorites are.

    Love the Westminster Dog Show. my brother in law has a female Alfin Pencer. Nice little dog. We have a Black Lab that
    was given to us. All trained and so good. ( Black Powder Rose !!. I can remember when there wasn't such a thing as
    a pedigree dog in NNY. Everyone had a mix breed. There is no dog as obedient or faithful as a mix breed. But we do
    love our Powder.

    My favorites are Rottweiler, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and the Gordon Setter.
    But.......the dog that won is owned by the wife of our veterinarian! When I heard them say Attleboro, Massachusetts, I almost fell off my chair!

    Westminster Dog Show

    I hope they have some re-runs on the show as I missed it. We used to show Great Danes many years ago. I'd love to have another dog now (a small one), but it's very difficult when one passes away. They become "members" of the family.
    By the way, we used to live in Ohio and are very staunch OSU fans.

    I love the Doberman Pinscher's, they are imho, so elegant, beautiful, intelligent, regal. I had one many years ago "Lacey" what a good girl she was. Maybe someday I will have another.
    Ironically the dobie I pine for is nothing akin to what we have now, a rescue, that was stated to be Bichon/shihtzu/yorkie, well that little ball of fur is now 44.6 LBS!
    My faves are the Black labs, Dalmations, German shepherds, the big dogs!
    My least faves: pugs, chows, schnauzers.
    Between my Dh and me, we have been bitten 3 times, all three were Schnauzer's and a Schnauzer mix...
