    In response to @ouesi, lets see if we can find out what breed or breeds are the most represented on dog chat. I think most people know I have a Whippet lurcher and an out and out Heinz 57.

    Apologies if anyone's breed has been left out - I've maxed the poll (which is why I've grouped similar breeds together, sorry. :Shy)

    I can't vote as I don't have any of the ones listed!

    I'm going to guess crossbreed as I seem to see lots of them, or maybe I just notice them more due to having one myself?

    I can't vote because there is no option saying any terriers.

    Maybe it would have been better to have left out one of the less popular breeds RR's for example and put in "Other" instead?

    I think there are just too many different breeds on the forum for a poll to work, as you are so limited on how many options you can have.

    The ones that stand out for me as missing from the list are cockers and springers, as I think there are quite a few of them on the forum.

    @LinznMilly I think you'll need about 10 threads running simultaneously will different options on each to cover all the breeds!! :D

    We encounter a Husky/Alsatian cross. It is very beautiful and obviously very well cared for. It isn't the most sociable beast on the planet. It's a bit bigger that our collie, Maximilian, .but they get along OK. Not so much with others. I think it tries to intimidate them. Perhaps because it can.

    Well done for attempting a poll but I don't see how it can work when you are so limited with the options you can give. I've voted rottie and GSP but think that option would probably be better as pointers in general or even HPR breeds as I can't put Arthur anywhere and I know there are a few pointers of the non German variety on here :) Also what if you have two of the same breed?

    None of those.
    Maybe you could classify them as - Pastoral, working , hounds and terriers , toy , mixed etc and then ask people to specify in their reply.

    Yeah, after kicking myself multiple times for missing so many breeds off, I started thinking that, even I someone else was to do another poll, with completely different answers, they'd only max their poll - and still miss some breeds.

    I tried, guys, I tried. :oops: :)

    Ridgebacks made the poll! :D

    Even though I think it's only myself and @Dogless who have RRs.

    Oh thanks for trying a poll, but yeah, just too many options.

    The only thing that might work is to keep a running tally, so start a list, and then add to it as the thread progresses.

    Example:

    Great Dane - 1
    Bull breed mutt - 1

    Then whoever comes after me C/Ps and adds to the list either by changing the number or adding a breed.
    Make sense?

    They do this on the rat forum I'm on- people add their new additions & keep a running total (I sucked at that BTW, showing my utter incompetence at even basic addition!) & taking away when ratties passed away
