Unexpected outcome of the United Airlines dog debacle

April 2, 2018

Over the past several months, United Airlines has been in the news with horrible stories about their treatment of dogs. A dog died after being forced to fly in an overhead compartment, then three dogs were loaded onto incorrect planes and sent as far away as Japan. As a result, the carrier has suspended all animal shipments while it tries to get its act together. While that seems like a good thing, there has been at least one unintended consequence: a Coast Guardsman is now facing a $31,000 bill to fly her English Mastiff, George Jefferson, home from Japan!

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!
