Love poodles; had five of them. They live a long time, they are intelligent, loving, loyal, and beautiful. They know how to train their owners. They are awesome. Of course, I love all dogs.

Dogs are just great companions - but there's nothing like the kidneybeaning, jumping, rolling, stubborn, innocent, silly, sighing, snoring, loving and loveable boxer! Ours is 7 1/2 years old and the best friend we've ever had. Thanks Buddy for all the fun and laughter you bring into our world!

Joy S. I know what you mean. We had a Border Collie (he was a foundling) his name was "Friday" because we adopted him on Good Friday. We also had 2 cats at the time and they all got along famously. So who cares if they are on the "top 10 list" they are loved anyway!

All dogs are wonderful, including mixed breeds. Thanks for keeping the list to one page and not 10 pages!

Please, please -- I know there are very good reasons for acquiring a "purebred" -- but please, please consider adopting from a shelter. We got the most loving and adorable mixed breed dog from a shelter. She had been sitting in the shelter for 20 days after being abandoned in a park... She was underweight; fur was dull and lifeless; she was timid. Now she's full of life; her fur is luxurious and shiny; she has discovered her voice. She is loved. And she loves us more than we probably even know.
