    Lapponian Herder

    Australian Kelpie

    Chodsky Pes

    to the list :D

    Deciding on only 5 is really tough!

    In no particular order:

    1. Thai Ridgeback
    2. Cane Corso
    3. Boxer
    4. AmBull
    5. Malanois

    I also have a strange love for Boston terriers! I'd love a Boston pup ^^

    Plus pitties and dogo argentino but they are banned :(

    A weimaraner will always be top of my list and I hanker for another long hair (current weim is my old LHs brother, but has short hair, ie, normal ;) ).

    Love the look of wire haired vizslas, Gordon Setters, pointers and have a secret growing love for a lh Dachshund.... With the exception of the dachshund, do you think I have a type? ;)

    ETA: I'm just gonna squeeze a Munsterlander in here too...

    My number one is still the Boxer

    Then

    2: German Shorthaired Pointer
    3: German Shepherd - I always wanted a GSD and did go off them slightly but my love for them is coming back !
    4: Bracco Italiano - I'm really loving this breed at the moment, don't think I can ever have one but I just love them !
    5: Springer Spaniel - I've always liked them but with seeing so much of Nicki85's Rusty I've fallen for them even more.

    My top 5 haven't, they are still (in only a vague order):

    Bernese Mountain Dog
    Leonberger
    Golden Retreiver
    Pyrenean Mountain Dog
    GSD

    However, number 6, and definitely trying for a place in the top 5, is a new one. The Hovawart. I met my first last week, a one year old bitch, and she was just incredible. It was love at first sight. Such a lovely girl. If she is typical of the breed, then they are certainly a new contender for 'future dog breed' list :yesnod:

    My top five never really change that much, it's all about the sighthounds for me and I can't see that changing :biggrin:

    Currently I'd say the list looks like this;

    1) Whippet
    2) Saluki (this is a new entry onto the list having met some a show recently)
    3) Ibizan hound
    4) Azawakh
    5) Borzoi

    Mine was:

    Pretty much the same although I might swap the Irish Terrier for a German Pinscher!

    And one of those breeds should be coming home with me in a couple of weeks :biggrin:
