We’re Number 17 So We Try Harder

The American Kennel Club listings for most popular breeds for 2009 are out, and the pug comes in at number 17, a respectable placement for sure. The Lab still ranks number 1, for the 19th year in a row. The bulldog—my daughter’s fav—went up a spot to number 7, and the German Shephard knocked the Yorkie from second place down to third. (My first dog was a GS and the breed always holds a special place in my heart.)

Interestingly, when the results for Top Dogs by City are polled, the pug lands in spot number 5 (tying with the Rottweiler) for Newark, NJ. Newark!
