Border Collie, I had one of these dogs (till he died) it was a fantastic pet, very clever, very loving and spent every waking moment trying to eat our cat. which would have been nice, I'm allergic to cats lol.

The dogs I had, never quite knew what a cat was. One even wanted to play with it like another dog.

The cat wasn't a normal cat though either, He really didn't care about the dog, the dog on several occasions cornered the cat, and the cat just smacked him in the nose a few times which made the dog leave him alone lol. Cat just used to walk around as if he owned the place (like they do) which annoyed the hell outta the dog heh.

I did have another dog after that, but i'd mark him as the worst ever dog to have.. he was a lurcher/greyhound cross I think.. but he destroyed my house lol. on the first day we had him he ripped down the curtains, pulled the curtain pole off the wall leaving a gaping hole in the wall, smashed several vases and ate part of my sofa..
then on day 2..
he destroyed my back door, toilet door, the freezer door and most of the freezers contents..

I gave up on him a few weeks later when I didn't have much left in my house that wasn't destroyed lol.

My favourite breed is an airedale, and this is my second. Very smart. You can give instructions in sentences. "You've had enough snacks. Go away and lie down." My dog stopped begging and went off to lie down. They don't shed dog hair which is great and they will follow you around outside without a leash and lie down close by if you are gardening or up a ladder. They seldom bark, unless someone comes close that they do not recognize.

For me it's like favourite foods - can't have just one.

Some breeds that i love include great Danes, bulldogs, weimariners, dobermans...I'm partial to the bigger dogs...except bulldogs - they are just too cool.

i love terriers & shelties

my husband wants a doberman. i've always liked little dogs, but after a weekend at the dog park i think i could love a big dog.

I once looked after 2 dobermans at an obedience trial. They have a scary reputation but they can be nice dogs.

Compromise with your husband and get a female airedale. It is a terrier but a big dog and it does not shed like a doberman.

that is a good idea. i like a dog that doesn't shed.

i just looked at some airedale pictures online. i'm going to talk to my husband about it. I love how smart terriers are. my dog (that stayed with my mom when i went off to college) is a terrier. you can also give her comands in sentences. it's unreal how smart she is.

at christmas she waits her turn & then opens a present. we go in a circle with everyone opening one at a time. you don't have to prompt her. she knows when it's her turn.

i'm so excited to go home in a few months & do a portrait session with her. i could never capture her cuteness with a point & shoot.

do you have pictures of your dog online?

This is my airedale. Her ears should be flopping down toward the front but they are a bit smaller than usual and her ear muscles are too strong. The Welsh strain has larger ears. This is the Neatherlands breed.

Well, I had a boxer that was a super clown. She would come running full tilt straight at you and veer off at the last moment. One time my father veered in the same direction as the dog and both ended up in the lake.

I also had a standard schnauzer that was a born guard dog of family and property. She never bit anyone. She did not need to. She scared them half to death. Lucky, no one had a heart attack. She was also happiest with her obedience trial antics.

One trial was to leave your dog off leash at the other end of the hall and call her. She was to come directly to you and move to the heel position on your left. Some dogs never got there, took detours, got sidetracked, or took a long time. Not my clown. She took off full tilt..50 pounds of dynamite straight for me. She started skidding from 20 feet out, landed right in front of me, and then moved to the left. The audience erupted in both laughter and applause.

Well after 11 years of my wife trying to convince me to get a dog I finally relented but when she said a Boston Terrier I was a bit unsure, not big on them or so I thought. When she brought him home he was not your typical Boston Terrier looking dog, they or I should say some that have his looks are referred to as Boston Bulldogs. Anyway he is a full bred papered one, just think he is a wonderful dog with a nutty side and I guess thats why I like him so much. Not really a barker which really works in his favour with me liking him lol... anyway here is the mud puppy, just loves the dirt so when we were installing a new pond he was in dog heaven.
