Most Registered Purebred List for 2017

March 29, 2018

Black And White French BulldogHot off the presses, The American Kennel Club (AKC®) announced at a press conference today that the loveable Lab once again is the number one most popular breed in the United States.

While the Labrador Retriever remains a constant at the top of the charts, the big mover and shaker in 2017 was the French Bulldog. The easygoing, playful, adaptable Frenchie not only jumped two spots to number four, it knocked the Beagle out of the top five for the first time since 1998.

“The Labrador Retriever has its paws firmly planted in Americans’ hearts,” said AKC Executive Secretary Gina DiNardo. “It’s such a versatile and family friendly breed. Don’t underestimate the power of the Frenchie, though! Its adaptability and loveable temperament make it very appealing to a wide variety of people. The French Bulldog is poised for a takeover.”

In addition to the country’s most popular, rare breeds were on the rise in 2017. The Norwegian Buhund rose four spots (174th to 170th), Skye Terriers rose six spots (178th to 172nd), Canaan Dogs jumped six spots (181st to 175th), and Harriers rose three spots (186th to 183rd).

The current top ten list:
1. Labrador Retriever
2. German Shepherd
3. Golden Retriever
4. French Bulldog
5. Bulldog
6. Beagle
7. Poodle
8. Rottweiler
9. Yorkie
10. German Shorthaired Pointer

Kinda mad my favorite, the Beagle, is out of the top five, but my second favorite, the Golden is hanging in!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Westminster 2018: Best in Show Line-up

February 13, 2018

To review: the competitors for Best in Show tonight are:

Hound Group: Borzoi “Lucy”
Toy Group: Pug “Biggie”
Non-Sporting Group: Bichon Frise “Flynn”
Herding Group: Border Collie “Slick”
Sporting Group: Sussex Spaniel “Bean”
Working Group: Giant Schnauzer “Ty”
Terrier Group:. Norfolk “Winston”

My pick? I’m torn between the sentimental favorite, the Pug Biggie, who is being shown in place of his uncle who died last summer, and the posing Sussex Spaniel Bean, who stands up on his hind feet for a sliver of liver every time he gets a chance.

But if I were a gambler, I’d bet on the Borzoi.
