I think I am a bit like Maggie, except I don't freak out QUITE as much in social situations

If I had to pick a breed that fits my personality, probably sheltie.

I'm a lot like Buster, I like set rules and I'd prefer people to just tell me what they expect from me from the start. I hate having decisions left up to me.
When there is conflict around me I generally just take off and find a quite place alone and when I'm hurting, I want to be by myself.
When I decide to act like an idiot... I really go all out, but I'm usually very, very reserved unless I'm around people I'm comfortable with, which puts me very at ease.

My sister fits in with Mac aswell. Little and loud and won't do as their told.

But to me, paps are a lot more 'my' breed than shelties. I enjoy papillons a lot more (as a whole) than I do shelties. I have no idea what that says about me.

That's how it is for me, actually. I wish I was more of a papillon, but I'm a sheltie. The thing that awes me about the paps are how just totally HAPPY they are all the time. How in tune they are with each other and people- even total strangers, how friendly they are and excited to meet someone knew, how ready they are for anything you throw at them....

I have to do things the sheltie way. When I meet someone it's more of I don't know you, I don't trust you. After you've won me, though, I'm totally different. I approach everything with caution and a lot of times, suspicion.

If everyone were papillons, the world would be a lot friendlier place.

Ahahahah ya thats me . Totally true about the personal grudges too.

Yup. Fits me I'm quiet, prefer to be with people I know rather than strangers, and well, I can be pretty intense sometimes.

I am all Akita...for my personal personality. The Beagles and Leo balance me out because they have more of the less serious, gentle nature...empathy and patience, that I lack.
