What is your favorite dog breed? I like really big, friendly dogs like retrievers or labs. My favorite are the golden colored type. My daughter is allergic to dogs, so my favorite hypo-allergenic breed is bichon frise. Have you ever been a pet owner? What is your favorite breed, and why?

I've always wanted a pug dog! They're just so cute. My partner has promised we can get one or two once we're settled financially in a new house. I can't wait!

Good for you! My husband really hates dogs, but I am still hoping he will let us get one someday, especially since my daughter and I really want one!

Pets are such a blessing. They bring so much joy and ask so little in return. I hope you and your daughter win him over!

My daughter and I were working on him this weekend. I bought my daughter a bichon frise calendar this weekend. She loves it! We asked our neighbour if my daughter and I could help walk her dog, and she said that we could during the Christmas vacation. We're really looking forward to it!

For a smaller dog I like my own CKCS, but I also like bigger ones such as flatcoated retriever, irish setter, and leonberger.

What is CKCS? I also don't know the leonberger. I love retrievers and irish setters, they're just beautiful!

Many dogs breeds make me sneeze, especially if they molt a lot. So I get on perfectly with hypo-allergenic breeds. So I choose to get a poodle, then I loved him so much I got another poodle. They are the miniature size. Secret is extra special because he has mixed colors. He is mainly white, with black patches and a few bits of apricot. So I like poodles, standard, miniature or toy. I have heard in the USA there is tea cup variety of poodle. I like a pet trim nothing silly like is seen in the show ring. Magic is plain black. I like cocker spaniels very much. Dalmations with all the spots look lovely. I like schnauzers quite a lot. I really like red setters with their gorgeous color fur. I like border collies that look like sheep dogs. I think all dogs are lovable. I have seen some wonderful poodle mixes like a poodle crossed with a cocker spaniel. Labradoodles are lovely dogs. They are a standard poodle crossed with a labrador.

Yes, the perfect dog for our family is also hypoallergenic. I have never had the privilege of being a dog owner. I think I would like to start with a mature completely trained hypoallergenic dog. I am definitely the type of person who would appreciate such a dog, and I know my daughter would as well.

Well thats a tough one. Theres this AWESOME pet store by my house and they have puppies of all sorts and I'm telling you 6 week old puppies of all breeds are just adorable. The Dachsunds, Puggs, Scotties ahhh. My fav adult breed? German Shepard. I love puppies the most though.

I don't think there is anything in the world as cute and wonderful and playful as a happy puppy! They are so full of joy, but I guess they are usually fairly high maintenance, because of all the training that young dogs are in need of.

I like cats too. We had two when I was younger and lived with my parents. One was a black cat that we called "minou" (a popular french cat name) and my mother adopted a yellow stray cat she called "yellowwax". "Minou" was a boy and he was really wild. He would fight a lot, and I still remember him coming home one morning with part of his ear torn off. "Yellowwax" was older and friendlier.
