Who read the Times today? Which Times, the one that’s the paper of record people… if you’re in there, then you are somewhere… or so they bark… or so they lead us to believe.

In any case, yesterday the American Kennel Club announced a change in their “10 Most Popular Dog Breeds in the Nation,” and accroding to the Times article written by Anthony Ramirez, “Across the country, the most popular dog last year, as it has been for 16 years in a row, was the Labrador retriever, with about 124,000 registrations, or 14 percent of the club’s total.”
He went on to write that the “big news, the club said, was the No. 2 ranking in both the city and the country: the Yorkshire terrier, overtaking larger breeds like the golden retriever and the German shepherd.”
WHERE HAVE ALL THE FRENCHIES GONE?
So, I went to the American Kennel Club website and checked out their list which is broken down by “Ten Most Popular Breeds in the US:”
1. Labrador Retriever
2. Yorkshire Terrier
3. German Shepherd Dog
4. Golden Retriever
9. Shih Tzu
10. Miniature Schnauzer
And then the lists are broken down by city… and although I saw bulldog on the list quite a few times I didn’t comes across FRENCH Bulldog, what up wit dat… French Bulldogs and English Bulldogs are not the same… viva de Resistence!!!
ENGLISH BULLDOG- He’s ruggedly good-looking but eats fish and chips and drinks pints… so I bet his breath stinks…
FRENCH BULLDOG- I’m so interesting to look at that your eyes glaze over, plus, I eat Violet Pastilles and drink Champagne so my breath smells like a spring-time breeze
BUT THEN, I went to the “Complete List of Top Dog Breed in the U.S.” only to discover that French Bulldogs RANK #36… only 36, come opn FRENCHIES, we can do better than that!
