My favorite breed is English bulldogs ;) They are incredibly loyal, fun, entertaining with wonderful, unique personalities. They're big hams. They are what I imagine live stuffed animals are like. I luv my 2 bullfrog monsters! @ dblbrl@gmail.com

Joy said...

My favorite breed are Pomeranians because they are full of energy & little bundles of pure joy.

I love beagles because they are adorable, loyal and full of energy.


@Unchat said...

Shetland Sheep Dog or Sheltie. WHY?

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Good Luck to everyone and their No Kill Shelter!

My favorite breed is cocker spaniels. I have four of them, they are loyal, loving, beautiful, full of energy, obsessed with a ball & bring loads of happiness to my life. Plus those floppy ears and wiggly butts make me smile everyday! @MMJnSC

@NancysParadise said...

My favorite breed is German Shepherd. It is my favorite because that is what my girl Reba is. She is 100% love and brings joy to me. @NancysParadise

My favorite dog breed is the Australian Shepherd. They've been my dream dog for as long as I can remember! I love how sporty, smart and loyal they are. I also think the blue merle aussies are absolutely STUNNING! :)

Wow, Tillman, we must have parallels in our lives because Tipper, our new kitty, just came to us on January 30th! He's a rescue of sorts ... he was a stray who just came into our house and made it his, too, AND adopted me and Chase as his family! =;-) Hope you all enjoy having a new kitty in your lives as much as Chase and I do. It's truly a blessing.

Now, as for my favorite dog breed ... it goes without saying that it's the Great Dane. But, Bulldogs are among my TOP favorites!!! Sometime, I'll have to tell you about a HUGE Bulldog, Norman, that I used to play with. He was the largest of his litter of more than ten and weighed around 100 pounds of solid muscle. People were so afraid of him that only his owner would play with him. I wasn't intimidated by him and would get on the floor and act like a doggy playmate. I really enjoyed Norman! He instilled in me a love of Bulldogs.

I'm spreading the word about WHO LET THE DOGS OUT for this week as usual on my doggy lists AND on TWITTER when I get on. I also want to thank you, Natural Balance, all your hoomans, Petco, the Van Pattens, and everyone and anyone else involved with your show and this promotion. It is very thoughtful and generous of all of you to do this -- donating product, time, and fun! =;-)

See you on TV and on TWITTER, my pal!

@DaneRay -- Ray, Chase & Tipper

I love English Bulldogs especially my Bulldog Bear. My boyfriend says I have bulldog radar because I can spot a bulldog blocks away! They always have a smile on the face and can make you laugh when you're feeling down.


Prudence said...

We love all breeds and mixes, but right now coonhounds rule the roost here, barooo! (& LBC looks a lot like our Sparrow, she's got glowing eyes too!)

tuppertails said...

We are a BULLDOG family! English and French bulldogs run this house (fo' sheezy!)Stubborn, funny, disobedient couch potato bulldogs!

Skye613 said...

Favorite breed rescued. 4 doxies & 4 kitties. None better

Four Paw Savings said...

I love lab mixes. When I was a teenager we got a shepard/lab mix, and she was the best dog. Now my mother has a lab/pit mix, and again, what a wonderful dog. Unless you count rescue as a breed? :)

My favorite breed is the Chihuahua because they are very loving, funny, smart, adorable and have huge personalities! I have 4 rescues myself : ) @ShellChis

zanderking said...

My favorite breed is the Great Dane. I have had several dogs from this loyal and loving breed. The Great Dane possesses a unique kinship with man and somehow, the Great Dane can express themselves to us very well. The eyes are the window to the soul, and the soul of a Great Dane will always be our kind friend. As a side note I will say that my Dane-Lab Mix was the best and smartest of them all. R.I.P. my kind friend Zeus, I will never forget you.

My favorite breed is Pomeranian because mine is small, loving, smart, soft, fluffy, cute, and alerts me when my blood sugar is out of bounds so they can be very small service dogs! @bellaberrypom

Snoopy Dukas said...

My favorite breed is the BULLDOG because we have squishy squooshy kissy faces, and are the most lovable breed EVER!!! @sdukas

shorty said...

Hi Tillman
I have walked many breeds of dogs & I love them all

I have had so many dogs all mixed my best dog was a mixture of a Beagle, Cocker Spaniel, and possibly a Spitz [white] & maybe a Poodle those were on her fathers side.

Gotta be the beagle: were in the Final Four in the American Kennel Club (AKC) rankings...#3 with a bullet. Better yet, my guy was adopted from a no-kill shelter.

We love all kinds of dogs, but our favorite is the Brittany. They are intelligent, easy to train, and always happy to see people (which makes us feel good when we come home). They are also very active and love to play or go for walks, which keeps us active as well.

Cinny Cockapoo said...

Hi Tillman,

We love all dogs but especially the Cocker spaniel / poodle mix -- the Cockapoo. They are playful, smart, cuddly, loving...the perfect companion. We are so glad we have a Cockapoo in our lives. Someone above mentioned the shaky butt of her cocker spaniel, now we know where our Cinny gets her shaky butt. Her whole back end wags when she's happy. It makes us happy too.

Hello Tillman,

My favorite breed of dog is all of them. but I will narrow it down to one specific breed. My dog is a cocker spaniel mix so I will say that is my fav. He is Smart, Loyal, Loving...


cstironkat said...

I love my Alaskan Malamute who are beautiful, gentle, giants. They are loyal members of my family. I adopted Kouga from Illinois Alaskan Malamute rescue and I would love to be able to give them a donation.

@firecracker427 said...

Favorite breed is German Shepherd

Hobie Dog said...

The Australian Cattle Dog is my favorite breed of dog. They are smart - a little too smart! - and loyal companions. My Australian Cattle Dog, @Hobie_Dog, can be a clown at times, as she is very playful. She can't skateboard yet but she's learning to tango!

flicka47 said...

Well, of course my favorite dog is the(drum roll...) Cocker Spaniel! They aren't necessarily the smartest of all dogs, though I did have one that could give most humans a run for the money! But they do think they are cats,so they have that going for them too!...snicker...

Thanks for having these contests Tilman. You are helping a lot of shelter animals as well as letting us have some fun playing!

The Indulged Furries said...

Golden Retriever! Bentley was smart, active, loving, gentle, calm, gorgeous, and loved the kitties. I adopted him when he was 9 years old and he lived to 17! I could not have wished for a better family member. @IndulgedFurries Here he is enjoying his 17th birthday cake.

@ctrlchris said...

A chihua, because to me, they're cute!

Lisa said...

Gosh, it's hard to pick one breed. I love all dogs, but I would have to say my soul-mate of dogs was my Standard Poodle. So sweet, gentle, and smart. I miss him.

sgumer said...

my favorite breed of dog is a tie between an airedale terrier and a shih tzu. i love the airedale because of its unique look and because it is a really friendly and faithful dog. i love the shih tzu because they are so darn cute and cuddly. i have had both breeds and cannot say enough about them. @sgumer sgumer at gmail dot com

@unchat said...

Congrats Michelle on your win! My favorite fun part of this contest is finding out what no kill shelter is winning the 1,000lb of Natural Balance.

I thought the one on the island was rather a nice choice!

Judy & Gaby Garland said...

My FAVORITE, ANY rescue dog, doesn't even have to have FOUR legs, but hair/fur is helpful and a kissy tongue and eyes that just TELL you how much they LOVE you. There is nothing like UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, and rescue dogs of all shapes/sizes and descriptions give that love. THEY are MY favorite! Judy & Gaby Garland

I love the Vizlsa. I own 2 Vizslas Schooner and Skipper. They love water and love to swim. We have a swimming pool and also a boat. They love to swim in Lake Michigan...run on the beach and go for a boat ride. The are Velcro dogs...they love to be right beside you all the time...I never go to the bathroom by myself..they go with me. They wait in the bathroom for me to get out of the shower. They are also hunter but mine are great huggers and kissers.
