I've only owned a dog once in my life. His name was Chipper. He was a little Datson that my mother bought for me on my 5th birthday. He was always a bouncy little thing--jumping on me, and saturating me with dog kisses every time he saw me. At the age of 8, Chipper was given up because my family had to move--the land lord of the apartment we were moving to didn't allow pets. I still see the look on Chipper's face when we had to give him away.
I've never owned another dog since.
However, I've come to learn that I do have preferences for certain types of dogs. I like long-hair dogs and BIG DOGS.
Chow-Chows are my favorite. Actually, it's a tie between Chows and the Samoa breed. I also like Huskies, Keeshounds and the warrior dog, like the German Shepard.
I've always wondered what makes us like certain breeds of dogs. I noticed that the ones I like have similar traits physically. They are all attractive to the eyes and are good dogs to own.
Lately, I've been contemplating buying one. Which one will I choose?
