    Does that mean I have to make a decision? I have looked up more breeds on this website, this week, than is probably healthy and my mind changes hourly :rolleyes: At the moment it is the Wire Fox Terrier. Or is it the Sammoyed;)

    Hmmmm where do I begin!?
    I think I added a few from each group into my shortlist :081:

    So here they are by group:

    Pastoral Group
    Smooth Collie
    Australian Cattle Dog
    Belgian Shepherd Laekenos
    GSD (probably working line)
    Begamasco
    Catalan Sheepdog
    Kangal & Flock Guardians


    Last three are greyed out, because although I would love them, they either require too much grooming or are a bit too big for what I want for my next breed.

    I will do a post for each of the groups - serious stuff this is! Great thread! :023:

    Great choice! I love the little Wire Fox Terriers, they have so much personality and flair. :)

    Not *new* favourites but love the Pharaohs and Sloughi. There wasnt any Azawakh at Crufts but they are another of my favourites :)

    Yes seen the stuff on Breedia for the Aza. I am friends with a few Azawakh owners on Facebook and am on both international and UK Aza groups. I know I will 100% end up with a Pharaoh but would love either a Sloughi or Aza too, I think it will probably end up being a Sloughi as they arent quite as rare :)

    Ooh, can you share those Azawakh groups, please? I'm not on FB though so hoping they're not FB groups. Love the breed. Spent a great deal of time talking to breeders/owners at Discover Dogs when I visited Crufts a couple years back.

    Damn. Never mind. I know the UK club site is not updated at all, so sadly I can't follow any news of the breed there.

    Get them to join Breedia :D they could submit their photos for inclusion in the profile as well :)

    Wonder if we could add a 'news' tab for each breed at some point too...

    i discovered that i really like spitz type dogs. have never really given them much thought before. mainly because i thought they needed a lot of grooming. im still adament it wont be a pom as much as hubby wants, i dont think ill know how to handle a dog that small and not sure i want something that cute as people will come over to me on walks and that does my head in i like to enjoy my walks in peace

    Terriers... I am limiting myself, otherwise I'd be selecting them all! And judging these based on what was show in the ring.

    Airdale
    Bedlington
    Mini bull terrier
    Wire Fox
    Irish Terrier
    Parson Russell
    Soft coated wheaten Terrier

    Utility:

    Akita
    Boston Terrier
    Schnauzer
    Shar Pei
    Dalmation
    Frenchie

    Toy:

    All of them - too cute :lol: was surprised at how much I liked the Chinese Crested :043:

    No new favourites for me. Since deciding upon a Hovawart, it's funny, because where in the past I've jumped from breed to breed, I just haven't done that since finding the Hovawart, which is how I know I've found "the one" so to speak. While I love and admire a whole range of different breeds, I can't say I want anything else right now.

    Golden Retrievers! the Goldie demonstration team at crufts this year was wonderful. although i have to say my favorites are still labs, lab mixes, and since we got brena now dachshunds.

    btw, katie is a lab/golden mix and she has fur just like a golden. every time i see a golden i think of katie, and she isn't a pure goldie.
