I could never understand what makes one dog better than another that is why when my daughter and I went to pick a new Labrador pup we could not choose; so we took both pups.

True dat.  Every dog and breed is awesome.  Assuming you love and train them. Although, I'm a little partial to Newfies.  Unfortunately they are crazy high maintenance and have short lives.  :(

I had Great Danes twice. I tried (unsuccessfully) to train my first Dane, Tristan, to NOT get up close and very personal when he met a woman and had to keep his leash very tight whenever he had the opportunity. One day I was sitting in front of a coffee shop with my eyes closed, enjoying the warm sun on a chilly day and with Tristan lying beside me. A woman wearing a dress stopped and asked "may I pet your dog?" and before I could grab the leash, Tristan found his target. "WOOO!" Huge smile. (Whew!) "Now he could teach my boyfriend a thing or two!"

I'd say you trained that dog perfectly.

We had black lab mix. He looked like a Labrador, but I think he was half Newfie as he weighed 140 pounds.

A good friend in IL has bred dobermans for years. We currently have a male and a female. We've had 7 dobes from her over the years and have taken in several pups for up to 6 months to socialize with our dogs. Those have been my wife's favorites because who doesn't like puppies?

We aren't "doberman people" but many of these have been gifted to us after they've been retired from the ring.

My mutt concurs.

As does mine - part black lab, part hound of some kind. She's very sweet.

Mutts rule.

My mutt is an pretty boy but I love him

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yes, only sweet females live with me. My wife thanks you for the compliment.

not really any difference although some owners of "designer breeds" other than WT, might prefer designer breed

I have known anyone with a Doberman for awhile, but my neighbors a few houses down had a Doberman named Bruno.  It was an INCREDIBLE dog.  The biggest thing I remember is if any younger kids playing outside, within a few house radius, went towards the end of their driveway, Bruno would sprint over and watch/guide them away from the road, often with kisses.  What an awesome boy

For the last several years when I've been to pet stores,* I've been absolutely floored by their attempt to pretend that ever single mutt in the place is now a designer breed -- and to charge designer prices. Take any two dogs, mate them, give them a new name (e.g., Yorkie Poo, Schnoodle, etc.), claim the best features of both breeds, and charge a fortune. They're mutts. Often, is seems like they're actually charging a premium over the pure breeds (or what passes for pure breeds in pet stores).

On a related note: it would seem that poodles aren't particularly discriminating when selecting a mate...they'll hook up with pretty much anything.


*My daughter cannot simply walk past a pet store without going in to see the puppies.
Never wrestle with a pig.  You both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
