    Happily I live with 3 beagles. Two are mother and son. The other one could be the grandmother. They were found wandering around in up-state, NY. They do have clocks – feeding time, walking, and tid-bits when I eat. They follow me around and love affection. Names are Ne-Tee (Mandarin for encore), Molly & Mikey. Molly & Mikey keep Ne-Tee young. She follows them ad runs up and down stairs. Don’t tell – she is going on 17,

  2. Absolutely amazing. I found this article very interesting and informative. One question: Where do Pit Bulls fall into this ? I have had 2 and they are loving, playful and intelligent. They love my children and are definitely a family dog ( or least mine are)

  3. My favorite breed is the Great Pyrenees. We have 2 puppies, turning 14 weeks tomorrow. They are the most amazing and beautiful dogs. When these 2 are grown and doing their job, guarding our sheep, we will get 2 more puppies. I am so taken with these dogs. They are so independent, sometimes stubborn yet they are so loving and gentle. Best dogs ever!

  4. For the last 40+ years I’ve had Cocker Spaniels, sometimes 3 at a time. I swore I’d never have a different breed. Well someone dropped a dog off for me to dog sit for a few weeks and never came back. In those three weeks Kenzie and I had built a great relationship without even trying to. Well my new friend is an American Bulldog. She’s one of the best dogs I’ve ever had and her intelligent dogs I’ve seen. She makes me laugh all the time. I’ve been told that since I’ve cared for Kenzie with food and water, a place to live and medical check ups I could have legal standing. But that’s a story for another day. She loves to go in the woods and drag out logs! Pound for pound one of the strongest dogs I’ve ever seen. She’s like the one on the TV commercial pulling the tractor trailer. She’s been a real blessing to me.
