For me, I only have one - Great Dane. My dad had one when I was growing up and we all loved the gentle giant in our house. I couldn't find one in Japan within our area or price range so we got our Golden. Love her to death, but my next dog if I can have one will be a Great Dane.

My first choice will always be a Golden. My next choice would be a Cavalier, our neighbor has 3, very nice dogs.

I love my Buddy and Hiro, so if we had to get dogs again I think I would stick with a Golden and/or a Collie mix. Buddy's...well, he's my Golden boy, I don't think I need to convince anyone here how wonderful he is And Hiro has such a loving, sweet personality, he's our calm old man dog already.

I had a Chow/Husky mix growing up and absolutely loved her, I would not say no to either breed. Going with the "dog I grew up with" trend, my grandparents had an Queensland Heeler mix that I loved.

I'm not a big small dog person, but I love dachsunds!

Such a good topic!! I think I would go for a Bernese Mountain Dog or an Aussie or maybe a GSD.

I'm definitely a "big dog" person, but if I had to go little, I love the look of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels! So cute!

A Great Pyrenees.

I have already had two, and one was my heart dog for 13 years. I miss him everyday. Starting to get puppy fever for one lately, so who knows maybe I'll have another sooner than I thought.

I will take one of each breed, in other words a mutt

Seriously though hard to say. Sticking with Goldens for now, they just fit me.

The other breed I'm interested in is GSDs. But, I recently took my Pom to the park (not off-leash type) and a girl who was walking by had a GSD. It barked and seemed a bit aggressive. My Pom also reacted, barking. My family has owned GSDs before. Lots of energy and they often do a lot of barking.

I currently live in an apt. (and dislike it. :-) so I'm not so sure GSDs should be another breed for me to look at. :-) A GR will probably be my next dog.

I'm looking for one for my Dad now, too. The problem is that there's so many out there included mixed with Labs and tons of Golden Doodles.
