The Canadian Kennel Club just emailed Mama their announcement of the Top 20 Breeds for 2007 - and Boxers ranked #8 !
Well well well. We KO'd all the other breeds ...except for just the first seven, or six...
So, this is how I see it: with Boxers having 1,677 points and the Mini Schnauzers having beat us by just 2 little numbers with 1,679, I figure we might as well have just come in 7th. Someone obviously made a mistake, but that's ok. Besides, we beat the Shih Tzus, who came in only 9th, by a huge 246-point margin, so just call me Mr. Popularity.
Oh and this is how the breeds ranked:
- 1. Labrador Retriever - 8,881
- 2. Golden Retriever - 5,647
- 3. German Shepherd - 5,067
- 4. Poodle - 2,839
- 5. Shetland Sheepdog - 2,472
- 6. Yorkshire Terrier - 2,441
- 7. Miniature Schnauzer - 1,679
- 8. Boxer - 1,677
- 9. Shih Tzu - 1,431
- 10. Bernese Mountain Dog - 1,303
- 11. Beagle - 1,135
- 12. Pomeranian - 1,091
- 13. Bichou Frise - 1,035
- 14. English Sheep Dog - 1,035
- 15. Pug - 1,033
- 16. Bulldog - 1,004
- 17. Siberian Husky - 1,001
- 18. Havenese - 997
- 19. West Highland WhiteTerrier - 978
- 20. Chihauhua, Short Coat - 965
Now, in the results for the Working Group, Boxers were Numero Uno, jousting the Bernese Mountain Dog and the Siberian Husky with a resounding lead. No mistake there. I think it's safe to say that Boxers are pretty much the coolest breed in ....
Excuse me, Chef. This is your Mama. Where are your manners? We should always practice modesty whether we win or lose, and Boxers kind of did both here, if you want to get technical.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's how you play the game.
And all dog breeds are friends and we shouldn't care which ones people think are nicer.
And all animals of the world are friends in nature and ...
Beautiful. I am now very proud of you. xoxox
xoxox ...... Mama?
But don't you always tell me Boxers are the best? ... Oooh. I get it.
Yes, I think you do.
