We haven't done the ABC game for a while so let's give it a go. How about the ABC's of Dogs? This would be a breed of dog like an Weimaraner if you have the letter W. The first person gives the name of a breed of dog that starts with the letter A. Then the next person chooses a breed that starts with the letter B and so on until we hopefully get all the way to ZZZZZ..... Feel free to share something about the breed you choose if you want. There are so many breed that most of us have never heard of. I enjoy learning about new and different one.

OK, I'll start with the dog breed of Akita. Here's some of what I found.

"The Akita Inu is native to the island of Honshu in the region of Akita in Japan, where it has remained unchanged for centuries. The Akita Inu is considered a national dog of Japan and is one of seven breeds designated as a Natural Monument. "

OK, who's next with the letter B?

Beagle. We own 4 of these, and one currently has a litter of 8 puppies (we breed them). They are high-spirited little dogs who can be very stubborn at times. They can be very loving, but also very independent. They are the smallest breed of hounds. Their drive to hunt is very strong. They can be little escape artists, and can sometimes manage to get out of the strongest fences. If they do escape, their noses can often get them into trouble. We had one that got hit by a car a couple of years ago because of this. Stubborn little guy! He could break out of any fence.

Our Beagles can be real characters. They like to be up high, so they climb the rock climber to our playground equipment and lay on the platform. They sometimes go down the slide in order to get down. They will sometimes go down the slide with the kids who attend our day care. Of course, the beagles always think that they must go first. They have also have been known to climb ladders. Two of our females have recently been climbing around in a small bush in our yard. I have no explanation as to why they are doing this.

Dachsund.  My sister has two of these and they are very sweet.  The male is multicolored and loves to hunt and burrow.  The female is black and as many females thinks she rules the roost.  Both are very smart.

English Bulldog!

"This short nosed and stocky breed loves attention. A very reliable, loving, and gentle breed, this dog makes an excellent companion for children and adults. More of a human companion, the English Bulldog also does well with other dogs and cats. This breed is always looking for guidance from his owner."

English Springer Spaniel - we have owned two of these dogs. They are social and good with children. They are even-tempered and gentle, and love to please you. They also learn quickly. We had a black and white named Max, and a brown and white named Gabe.
