    2 Yorkshire terriers. Why? It's much smaller mess, when a small dogs do that and they are extremely friendly. Besides, I've never seen funnier dogs than these two.

    I have a boxer pitbull that I found on craigslist for free. Before her (Layla), I was a die-hard cat person and even considered myself anti-dog. I was just cruising on Craigslist one day and saw her face and it was love at first sight. Since I knew nothing about dogs, it's been a learning experience understanding her wants and needs, since dogs are SO different from cats. Now, I'm obsessed with dogs. If I see one on the street while I'm driving I always have to check them out and plot how I can kidnap them (not really, dogs are just so cute). Definitely the biggest joy in my life. I love my dog Layla!

    I have a 6 or 7 year old (we don't know his real age because we found him) American Water Spaniel named Marley. He is big, stinky and has super curly hair. He is currently our only dog right now. We used to have 3 dogs at one point and our house always felt full of love. Marley doesn't like other dogs though and just wants to be the only dog of the house. He loves his bed and he loves to be spoiled.

    We have a boxer named Luna, sweet girl. We got her when my son was 2, now she's 2 and he's 4 and they're inseparable. Since she couldn't sleep in his bed (we knew she'd get too big and possibly crush him) we placed a big dog bed in our own bedroom right next to a heating vent. She loves it there, especially in the winter. Every once in a while she'll somehow sneak onto our bed but for the most part she sleeps in hers.

    I only have 1 dog, she is a German Shepherd, Black Lab, Husky mix. My dog is 7 years old with medical issues but she is so hyper and acts like a puppy, its very draining. I've thought about getting another dog but my apartment isn't big enough.

    We currently have two dogs, one is a full bred English Chocolate Lab and the other a Pitbull/Lab/Boxer mix. I have not had many full bred dogs in my life as we always rescued mixes as I was growing up, but when I was high school I wanted to have a full bred and purchased my first, a pug whose name was MooShoo and I kept that name for him. We eventually found another pug, Eli, who needed a much better home and took him in at the age of 8.

    While we had these pugs, Bailey, the English Chocolate Lab came into our lives as a gift from my mother. He had needed a new home as his previous owners were moving where they were unable to take him. His name was previously Toby and it really did not fit him... so I chose the name Bailey for him. He's been an amazing addition to our family, but when we had to put the pugs down, one due to a serious problem with a disc in his back and the other to old age, Bailey became very depressed. This is when another mix came into our lives.

    Bear came to us via Craigslist. When we saw him we knew we had to meet him. This rambunctious bundle of crazy excitement was 10 months old when we met him. We new the minute we met him that we had to take him home. He instantly not only connected well with Bailey, but felt at home the moment he walked in the door. I know this because by the end of that first day, he was sprawled out on the couch on his back, belly fully exposed. It was that moment that I knew he was supposed to be part of lives for a reason. That reason eventually showed itself in the manner of assistance for my depression and anxiety. He is now my full, owner trained Service Dog.

    We have had our adventures with both full bred and mix dogs and I am of the firm belief that it really doesn't matter the breed or type of dog you choose because when you find the right dog for you, you'll know not by what breed the dog is or how show worthy he or she is, but by the connection you feel with that dog.

    My current dog is a 9 or 10 year old Chocolate Labrador-Pitbull mix named Hazel. I don't know how much she weighs, but she's aging, and it's getting worse. Either way, I love Hazel to death, and I'm so glad I have her in my life. My family got her 6 years back or so I believe when we adopted her from the shelter, and when we saw her, we almost unanimously agreed that she would be the right dog for us, and like I mentioned, I'm really blessed to be Hazel's owner, and she's a really great dog.

    I have a 10 and 1/2 year old Miniature Schnauzer. Her name is Bettyboop, and she is solid white. I also have a Pitbull Terrier. His name is Myloh. He is two years or age. It is amazing the difference in the amount of dogfood he eats compared to Betty.
