What’s your favorite dog breed?

What’s your favorite dog breed? For me it’s hard to choose. My top 3 are German Shepards, Boxers, and Labs. Back in 2006 I bred Boxers, although it was a good experience it became a constant struggle because of my work schedule and I had to take a hiatus from dog breeding. The best dog I ever had was a boxer mix, and that was over 40 years ago, yeah I know, I’m old. My goal is to have a superior breed of dog that has a great temperament and that is healthy. I know the trend for farms are livestock guardian dogs, but for me I like to switch it up a bit, only time will tell. Please comment below, what’s your favorite dog breed?

Duke

I had to of been 4 or 5 when my parents gave me the responsibility of raising a puppy.

I’ve always been comfortable around dogs so there was never a fear factor. I truly believe that dogs are angels and they were sent here to protect us.

I can’t remember why I chose the name Duke, who was a mixed breed, half Boxer, half Labrador Retriever, but that name fit him perfectly.

Every summer I was operated on to fix my birth defect and any time away from my puppy made it even worse.

I had to envision myself running in the fields with him so I could heal fast and go home. That was my secret, I used the power of positive energy.

That dog was my lifesaver, he had human traits, it’s almost like he understood what I was saying, I miss him dearly.

I taught him basic commands such as sit, lay down, and I even taught him how to shake hands with either paw, and he taught me empathy and kindness, yes Duke taught me those things.

Duke was my best friend, we had a bond that could never be broken, just the thought of him puts a smile on my face, I know he is still watching over me in doggy heaven.
