Default Do you go through phases where you just CRAVE a certain dog breed?

I have that list of dog breeds I would like to one day own, and I'm sure I'm not alone on that....but do you just go through a period of time where you want a dog breed NOW? And you just can't stop looking at puppy pictures of that breed?

Right now I'm going through a bull terrier phase. I just can't stop looking at those adorable puppies on pet finder and my Dog Breed Encyclopedia is opened to the Bull terrier page. I've met a few and I've loved them all, someday I'll definitely have one. Quite different from my border collie though! A couple months ago I went through a major Irish Wolfhound phase. My dog preferences are so scattered!

Anyone else?

Every day of my life. is addictive. It is like a drug. Wait until you go through an Akita phase... that's just madness.

Yup, corgis. I think it's beyond the point of being a phase though.

I do occasionally go through moments of wanting a chi, thanks to a couple chazzers.

I'll go through phases where I get OBSESSED with a certain breed... but the desire to own that breed doesn't go away; I just stop talking about and Googling them constantly lol.

Right now I'm really into Newfies. I've wanted to own one for the past 5 years or so, but it's only recently that I've been looking into breeders and seriously considering having one in the future haha.

I have a few times in the past, but haven't in a long time. I went through a Border Collie stage, a Belgian stage, a Leonberger stage.... and I think that's it. I'm very happy with the two breeds I have now and can't truly imagine living with anything else, eventhough there are other breeds I like.

Border collies are it for me now, though I do still look at every papillon rescue too.

I went through about a 6 or 7 year stretch where it was Ibizans.
