    The original post in this thread is more than three years old. Seeing it bumped in the fashion forum made me misty for the old days.

    I think any dog you love is the right one. For me personally it's my 3 yr old german shorthair pointer who is faithful, will run all day long, sleeps as well, is curious and always wants to know what you're up to.

    Not at all, but dog breeds go through fashion cycles and are given as cute puppies who then grow up into lumbering hulks and are either abandoned or its off to the pound for 'Dead Dog Walking.' Sorry if you want a dog all well and good but be prepared to give them the time they require.

    It takes many generations of selective breeding to "create" a breed. The labradoodle isn't there yet. Just as children of the same mother and father will not be genetically gifted with the same intelligence, your beloved dog may not be as intelligent as it's litter mates. This obviously did not make her less lovable.

    A Treatise on Good Manners and Good Breeding

    Jonathan Swift

    GOOD manners is the art of making those people easy with whom we converse.

    Whoever makes the fewest persons uneasy is the best bred in the company.

    As the best law is founded upon reason, so are the best manners. And as some lawyers have introduced unreasonable things into common law, so likewise many teachers have introduced absurd things into common good manners.

    One principal point of this art is to suit our behaviour to the three several degrees of men; our superiors, our equals, and those below us.

    For instance, to press either of the two former to eat or drink is a breach of manners; but a farmer or a tradesman must be thus treated, or else it will be difficult to persuade them that they are welcome.

    Flanderian, belatedly answering, yes, as in Irish Wolfhound, my tribute to a fine, intelligent, loyal breed.

    As seen annually at St. Patrick's Day parade in SF:

    Only the ancient breeds if you please. My favorite is know in the USA as the Anatolian Shepherd Dog:

    My Catahoula is on his last legs and I was curious what everyone else on here had. I will get my kids another Cataloula. I hope it becomes a family tradition for generations to come.
