Saturday’s Super Six | Dog Breeds

Saturday’s are super. For me, that means a full day of anything I choose: playing games, going for walks, catching up with housework, a bit of a pampering session. Whatever I do, it’s topped off with Doctor Who, Supernatural, Strictly Come Dancing and maybe a cheeky drink. That sounds like a perfect night to me.

On top of all that, I think it’s about time for a new blog feature. I’ve gained a lot of new followers recently, and I’ve received nothing but praise from my regular viewers so here’s to sharing something new! Saturday’s Super Six is going to be a weekly feature on my blog, where I can share my favourite/top six memories, books, movies, puddings, cars, drinks, beauty products, date nights, it really isn’t set in stone. It’s not only a way for me to share my favourites, but it’s also going to allow me to share ideas and advice with you!

I’m looking forward to this, so if you have any suggestions or ideas for what you would like to see in Saturday’s Super Six, or if there is anything you’d like me to share, then don’t hesitate to leave a comment when you leave. 🙂

This week I’m going to share my super six breeds of dog. Although I’m a huge crazy cat lady, I do have a soft spot for dogs. Until recently, I’ve always had a dog. My most recent, Daphne, who sadly died a few years ago now, very old and very poorly, was a Labrador, Alsation cross breed and she was lovely. I doubt any other dog would come close, but if I ever wanted to fill the dog shaped whole in my life, it would be one of these:

1. Australian Shepherd:
Temperament: Protective, Good-natured, Active, Intelligent, Affectionate
Firstly, how beautiful is this breed? Based on looks alone, I would love to own one, but on top of that, they have the perfect temperament for a loving family dog.

2. Siberian Husky:
Temperament: Outgoing, Alert, Gentle, Friendly, Intelligent
Beautiful, proud, safe looking dogs. They’re practically wolves. I’d definitely feel safe walking my husky late in the evening. Matt’s brother has a husky, who is an absolute lump of fluff, absolutely harmless and super affectionate. Looks can be deceiving.

3. German Shepherd:
Temperament: Watchful, Alert, Curious, Obedient, Loyal, Confident, Courageous, Intelligent
Have you noticed a theme? I like big dogs. Small, toy dogs are quite fashionable at the moment, but I like dogs to feel like part of the family, not like tiny toys. German Shepherds are so friendly, but their deep bark shows they mean business. Daphne was very protective of my mum, and her bark sure would have frightened a few postmen.

4. Dalmatian:
Temperament: Outgoing, Playful, Energetic, Friendly, Active, Intelligent, Sensitive
Okay, Disney’s 101 Dalmatians probably has something to do with my love for this breed but I very rarely see them around, so when I do I’m still completely taken aback by their spotty brilliance.

5. Weimaraner:
Temperament: Alert, Steady, Fast, Aloof, Energetic, Stubborn, Powerful, Intelligent
I’ve never seen one of these dogs in real life. I’ve only ever watched them on Crufts, but whenever I see them all I can think about is how beautiful their little ears are and how smooth their fur looks. My dad loves them too, so I’m sure that’s influenced me.

6. Papillion:
Temperament: Alert, Energetic, Friendly, Hardy, Happy, Intelligent
They are known as the least aggressive small, toy dog and there’s not much to not like. Adorable, friendly and small without being yappy and aggressive. If I were to have a dog, I would have two: a big dog, and this.

  1. Hey Morgan! Great post!! Hey, green is my favorite color so I randomly find myself flocking to your blog; it’s lovely. AH YES I AM A SUCKER FOR BIG DOGS. Believe it or not, I find small dogs scarier. I am really good at being spooked by books and movies so I will scream if that tiny dog sneaks up on me. No. Kidding. German Shepherds are beautiful dogs, they are loyal, which is something that I find every living thing should have. I want a German Shepherd, but I don’t think I’m ready for a hunting-bred dog, they are always a little more intimidating, but not if you get them as a puppy! I want either a German Shepherd or a Golden Retriever, I am in love with Golden Retrievers and nothing more needs to be said because they are darlings.

    Love and books,
    Veda

    • Hi! Green is my favourite colour too, quite pale though, like the colour of my blog :-).
      I love Golden Retrievers too, but it was such a hard list to compact into 6 breeds! Dogs are so beautiful!
      I agree, I completely prefer big dogs. My mum has 2 Jack Russels, which are quite small, but I feel like small dogs have tiny needle-like teeth and that’s scarier than big teeth. Probably because I’m frightened of needles haha.
      Nice of you to stop by, and thank you for the kind words. 🙂

  3. Love dogs too, and my favourite breed is whichever mutt currently lives with me. ;). My previous dog was Irish terrier and border collie cross – smart as anything, tough and loyal. My current pooch is a german shepherd/corgi mix – not very smart, but the most lovable, loyal, happy dog ever!
