How many dogs do you own? Please specify breeds after you vote.

I own one Golden right now, but growing up when we lived on the farm the most my family had was probably 11 or 12 (a few purebreds, and a whole lot of Heinz 57's).

I am making this a public poll, and allowing you to vote for more than one option in-case you have a situation where you might vote for multiple options (co-owning dogs that don't always live with you, etc). If you do vote for multiple options please explain with a response.

I have 3 dogs: Gus the Golden; Charlie Brown, the Chocolate Lab/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix; and Ace of Base, the insane Black Lab mix.

Gus is the first dog I've ever had, and apparently now I can't stop! (Well, actually I can stop or my husband will divorce me!)

Three goldens for me: Finn, Tally, and Tango. A "generation" ago, I had three goldens too: Joplin, Raleigh, and Acadia. I am very comfortable at 3 or 4. 5 is way too many and with only 2, I hate to take one and leave one at home.

3 golden retrievers: Reno, Austin and Lincoln.
I love your cities name theme. We had a golden Raleigh and I have an elderly morgan horse named Charleston.

Just the one. I would love to have another one though. Maybe in a year or two. I would love to own a male in the future.

4 in all: 1 6 year old female golden, 1 5 year old male golden, 1 5 year old male Lhasa Apso, 1 5 month old male golden. Annabel wishes that she were an only dog. I can just see her eyes roll every time I bring home a new one.

My face has this stupid huge grin (like this -> :D) on it, thinking about what it would be like to live with 9 dogs! Just imagining all of the cuddles and loving! ... and poop-picking :no:

For PG & arcane, I've always been curious to know how you manage so many? Are they ever all free to roam in the house together at the same time? Do they all get along? Do you have to rotate them so some are inside, some are outside, some are kenneled, etc. I can only imagine how much work it is.

We have 2 now (Golden & GSD), but we'll have 3 in 8 weeks. Our new pup was just born yesterday. :bowl:
