I shan't ever speak to any of you again!
No, just teasing. The funny thing is, I used to hate chihuahuas myself. But there is something about having one of your own. I will say, small breeds are not for everyone. But, the stereotypical version of them is not always true, it's all how you raise and treat them.
David's choice in dogs is a good one. I love border collies. Wanted one myself, back when I had a larger back yard.
Labs and goldens are two great breeds, Bill!
Great sentiment, Cathy! Sorry to hear you were bitten by a collie.
