You are never given the dog you want, but the dog you need.

Breed All About It (Coming Soon)!

Well, today was the last day of lecture. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a little emotional, but all in all, it’s left me with a renewed sense of moving forward. As much as I’ll miss some of my teachers- something that is rarely said by many students, especially college ones- I look forward to starting my life. Wherever it leads me, no matter the paths I walk, I’ll do so knowing that I have the support of those I’ve befriended here and those who have forever made an imprint on my heart.

But, I’d also be lying if I said I wasn’t a little…relieved.

As much of love/hate relationship that I’ve had with school, terrible classes (teachers), and lengthy boring papers that don’t interest me in the slightest, there have been bright moments. However, despite these happy moments, I’ll be glad to start doing work that I really love doing. Work that I don’t look at and heave a sigh of boredom. It’ll be nice to have a little more free time, even if it’s only 30 minutes more a day than a had before, it’s still time I can spend doing what I want.

That’s something I haven’t had in a very, very, long time.

But anyways, yes, class has officially wrapped up. All I have left is to finish my final papers, do my only in class exam and then don my cap and gown and walk across that stage.

That part of today being done, let’s get to the real part, shall we?

So today, I have a bit of a question for you all about what you want to have me talk about next week. I’ve come up with a list of dog breeds that I want to talk about, but I’m not sure which one to talk about first- which is where you come in.

Let me know which breed you want to have me talk about- and why, if you feel like it- as well as any specific topics you’d like to have covered in the future. These topics can be breeds, groups, how to’s, etc., but let me know in the comments section and I’ll be sure and cover them one at a time!

So, what are your breed choices? These aren’t breeds that are recognized exclusively in the U.S., mind you, but are international breeds- some of which are rather rare.

The Mudi

The Carolina Dog

The Azawakh

The Transylvanian Hound

And last, but not least, the Petit Bleu de Gascogne

Alright, so give these pooches a glance over and let me know in the comments which one you’d like to hear about first! If you’d like, you can rank them in order of 1-5 (1 being most interested, 5 being not so much, but still kind of interested) and I’ll cover them in order of popularity.

I tried to pick ones that people weren’t too familiar with, and ones that even I hadn’t necessarily heard of before- just to keep things interesting for everyone.

On that note, I’ll let you get back to enjoying your Friday/weekend! Have fun and be safe everyone, and don’t forget to do your FreeKibble for the day! Those shelter pets need our help, and this is one easy way to do so and will barely take up any of your time. So please, help them out and answer two simple questions. Right or wrong, it benefits them!

  2. Whatever breed you cover, I would love to see you mention their flaws as well as their good points 🙂 I have two German Shepherds, one of the most common/popular breeds in the country. The sad thing about them is that there are a lot of people who get them just because they are popular and “easy to train”. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. They ate very smart and easy to train if you do it right, but they need an incredible amount of energy, and mental stimulation. As much as we all love fluff, I think a lot of breeds get screwed because too many people make it seem easy to own them – you know? Anyway, love your blog and can’t wait to see more! I’m an English grad, and I feel your pain!!!
