I don't think I could play this game. I had not personally seen the stereotyping of dogs until we got Mya. We have actually been asked why would we want such a pet that looked just like a plain dog!! and also have been told that she looks evil with her dark chocolate coloring and greenish eyes like a bat or something. How awful can people be? We have also been asked why we would want such a problem dog, they are too full of energy, always jumping and hopping and running... Mya does have the energy and likes to play but she also loves to cuddle and just lie down next to us to take a nap or sleep.

I love all dogs, there are features of some I don't like as well as others but I still like the dogs. I do not think there is such a thing as a bad dog, the bad traits named above I think are the fault of the owners and not the dog themselves.

I have heard of the stereotyping and people here in the US in certain states trying to make it mandatory to put pitties down which breaks my heart, every one I have met has been an absolute sweet heart and their history is actually being nannies to children people trusted them that much. And as for yappy little dogs, we have had 2 yorkies in the past and they have been amazing dogs, very intelligent, easy to train, and ours only yapped when someone was in our yard or someone was coming to the door they didn't know. (both yorkies were our daughter's but she lived with us so were ours too).
Enjoying life with my dog

1. Small / lap dogs.
2. Terriers.
3. Bulldogs. Or ANY dogs who are grossly deformed to the detriment of their health.
4. ANY breed of dog that requires me to carry a "drool rag" around with me!
5. Pulling at straws now... Bearded dogs. I just don't like how they look at all.

I don't like to be around small, yappy dogs. It isn't that I dislike them; I dislike the yapping.

I never cared for bull dogs until my daughter got a pug at rescue. He had been placed because he would not potty train (aka, the owner would not take the time needed). Pugs and chihuahuas are supposed to be the most difficult breeds to potty train. Mary looked up online how to do it and her whole crew put forth the consistency and patience needed. Snickers is a great little dog. He has been totally potty trained for years now. I could never train one at this stage of my life, but I have grown to love the breed. Snickers is the main reason I broke down and got another dog in my retirement. I love both pugs and French bulldogs now! But I love my Delilah best of all. :-)
