And the Most Popular Dog Is …

Windy would rather nap than win a popularity contest.

The American Kennel Club does not list dachshunds or miniature schnauzers in its top five most popular dogs from 2011. But the dachshunds did come in at number nine, slipping from number eight in 2010.

Is pink Jake's color?

The miniature schnauzer came in at number 12.

The number-one dog for the last decade is the Labrador retriever. I’ve never owned a lab, but my husband would like to have one some day. The German shepherd, beagle, golden retriever and yorkie round out the top five. You can get more information at

It seems like I see yorkies and labs everywhere, especially in my neighborhood. It is not unusual to see folks have a big dog and a little dog. My neighborhood has a huge dog population, and people are good not to let them roam free. But picking up after walking them…that is not so good.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
