What kind of dog are you?

This isn't going to be a link to some quiz that tells you what dog you are based on what junk food you eat or where you went to college. You have to do all the work yourself. 

I was just in a brainstorming session a couple of weeks ago where everyone was asked to introduce themselves and then tell what kind of dog they might be, if in fact they were to ever become a canine. 

I, on the other hand thought that it might be more interesting if those of us sitting around the table told each person what kind of a dog we thought they were.  So we did both.  People introduced themselves and revealed their secret dog identities.  And then I told them what kind of dog they really were. 

The moderator started out.  He said he thought his responsible personality was best suited to a collie.  I took one look at him and said, nah, he was a boxer, not a collie.  Lots of energy.  Very athletic. And so it went.  All the way around the table. One lady who thought she was a chow was actually a flatcoated retriever in my book. A very exotic brand manager type from Pittsburgh by way of India said she was a labrador retriever. I couldn't have agreed less. Nope, you're a Saluki, I said. She didn't know a Saluki from a Kabuki dancer, but I think she was pleased with the breed once she heard more about it.

So, what kind of a dog do you think you are?  What kind of a dog do other people think you are?

I am an afghan.  When you first see them they can go diva and look very elegant and beautiful. But it's all a front. Because the next minute they're clowning around. As in totally goofy. And they never stop.

That's me. And everybody agreed.

Well, obviously I'm a greyhound.

statuesque, reserved and graceful.  sometimes a showoff.  
in reality, loyal and true.
mostly a big ole' goofball.

First, you tell me I'm dying in 37 years, now you wanna know that I'm a Cocker Spaniel? Jooti, take the rest of the day off.

I believe I'm a lovable mixed-breed mutt, just like my Mandy.  So there!

To strangers, I'd likely be a  boxer...kinda goofy looking, but quiet and introspective.

To friends, I'm Yappy the Chihuahua (an actual nickname)

~tara :D

I'm one o' them coonhounds from the deep south. You know the one that's lying on the porch, deep in the bayou. The one they say, "looks fast just layin' there" about.

last time I did one of those dog quizzes I was the Afghan and a greyhound...funny, because i have a greyhound and I've always thought afghans were so cool, and they look like greyhounds with long hair, they're in the same family of sighthounds...somewhere I read though that they were very dumb, but I don't agree, they are just very independant and don't need their masters to tell them what to do!
