popular dogs

the akc has released its list of popularity by registration. now, this is of course only a rough approximation of the actual popularity of dogs since the akc is snooty and has very specific rules for who gets to register, etc. and MUTTS are not dogs according to the akc but here's their list of the most popular breeds:

1. labrador retrievers
2. yorkshire terriers
3. german shepherd dogs
4. golden retrievers
5. beagles
6. dachshunds
7. boxers
8. poodles
9. shih tzu
10. miniature schnauzers
11. chihuahuas
12. boo-dogs
13. pugs
14. pomeranians
15. boston terrorists

i'm a big fan of labs (the chocolate ones are the tastiest) so i can see the appeal. i'm also glad to see the corgador remains a well-kept secret. not everyone is up to the task of being owned by one of us.

ps. i was a little surprised to see how low on the list wtfs and airedales are since i feel like i know SO MANY of you terrierists on the internets. i guess what you lack in numbers you make up for in personality, eh?

I see SO MAY Jack/Parson Russell Terrors I am surprised they did not make the shortlist!

Us WFT's are an acquired taste.

Hey Wally, you're right. There's not more terriers on that list.

15th?! I think we can blame the low rating on the Doofus.
