Personality Insight: What Does YOUR Favorite Dog Say About You

What Does YOUR Favorite Dog Say About You

I don't know, it seems the more and more I observe, the more and more I notice the type of dog you have can say alot about the type of person you are.  People with an outgoing, happy-go-lucky personality seem to have dogs that are just like them and people who are more serious have dogs that 'seem' to be less playful or active but more of, let's say, a guard dog of sorts.  Anyways, at, they had their version of What Does Your Dog Say About You that I found quite 'amusing'.  They did 50 dog breeds but I will only do the more popular ones here.  You can go there to see your dog breed if it's not listed here
