It will probably surprise no one to hear that Kimma is my favorite

BUT she is also the only one that I've raised from a puppy, so that might be why we are so much more bonded than I am with Pen or Bubbles.

That all being said, Nika is my favorite animal out of all of them LOL. She's the bestest <3

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!

Sally's my heart dog .. I've had her since I was eight. She's the dog that got me interested in dogs. I've grown up with Sally -- needless to say we have an incredible bond. No dog will ever compare to her.

& Sally, never forgotten.

I have the same problem with Ilsa and Kaylee. I thought no other dog could be so special... but now I have Kaylee and she's so, so special.

Out of the current 4, Kaylee is hands-down my favorite. She's everything I want (anad everything I need) in a dog.

I know it's awful, but the Dobermans are my favorites. We understand each other, we speak the same language. Which is why I may, someday, get down to only Dobermans.

Morado Dobermans... and Talla the Mexidog too! (group photo pending)

Mitch was/is definitely my favourite, but there's something about Matrix that makes me melt too.

and Fozzie B!

Fozzie is definitely my favorite dog ever. He just fits me so well. I never have to worry about him in any situation, I can always count on him to cheer me up, and I love everything about him. Seriously everything! My BF is jealous because I call him adorable like 88654736 times a day. We have the most intense bond, which is crazy, because he's an extremely independent dog by nature. But he and I have so much understanding. We stop and stare at each other for like 2 minutes straight, then run around all crazy with each other. He has the best sense of humor and knows exactly what is going on and what people are talking about. It's hard to not forget that he's a dog.

I love Gonzo but it's not the same with him. And sadly, ever since he almost died I have involuntarily distanced myself from him. Owning him has been an amazing experience and I've learned so much from him, however, at age 13 I had no idea what breed would really fit me and my lifestyle. Generally an abused, fear aggressive Border Collie is never going to thrive in a busy/social home full of young people. And I have to remind myself not to resent the fact that despite years of classes, training and work, his personality will NEVER truly fit me. He's very special and I'll always love Border Collies. It's just not the breed for me at this time in my life, but we make it work, and he is very happy with any of my family members anyway.

<3 Erica, Gonzo & Fozzie

Eve and my cat RJ are my favorites. Wink, though she's long since been adopted, will always be a favorite animal of mine. I love Dash and Dakota, I love all my fosters, I love my other three kitties at home, but none of them can touch Eve and RJ. RJ didn't come with me to Ohio and I miss him far, far more than I thought I would. =/

In our current household it's just Eve and Dusk. Eve, since basically retiring as my service dog, is a slightly annoying but amusing and highly loyal roommate. She gets a thumbs up. Dusk and I clash. Frankly he's the first dog I've ever clashed with to such an extreme. We coexist in relative peace after god knows how many months of intense hatred for one another. I wouldn't say I dislike him, but he's kind of like that family member that annoys the hell out of you sometimes, but you see the good in them because they're family and at the end of the day, you accept them and they accept you.

Short version: Dusk plays with Eve, keeps her company, and sometimes greets me with enthusiasm when I come home from work, so I do like the little spaz.

Dusk has major potential to be way more polite and way less of a psycho hyperfearful nervebag, but that's not going to happen until Tony and I move out of this house and take the dogs.

I'll also say that I really like Dusk a lot more when he and I are alone together. He's a total ass when he's around Tony or Danielle.

I have a very intense bond with Ace and Courtney, they are my 2 velcro dogs, they will do anything I ask them, and they are my 2 that always are right there, I have never had a bond with a dog like i've had with these two. I love all my dogs, but those 2 are very special

I only have one dog at the moment but I had a few heart dogs (rip). A standard Dachshund (Ozzy) and a JRT (Tika) were my biggest heart dogs I've ever had. Don't get me wrong, I love Ruby but she is more my husbands heart dog. I however have a heart cat (this coming from a non-cat person) his name is Bo! So if I were to pick a favorite pet- then I would have to go with my cat!
I'm sorry. You are not a mommy because you own a dog

I think I should leave past dogs out of this, but I will mention that my Doberman, Lyric was something extra special...some kind of bond that is unexplainable. I think I had that with one of my GSDs years ago too...some kind of glue that is a little different than most.

Anyhow, between my two Chihuahuas now, I don't know if I can call one a "favorite," since they are both so different and I love them in different ways. They're both incredibly sweet, agreeable little dogs and have their own set of quirks and personalities. It's just that Jose` has so MUCH personality. He's very, very attached to me, where Chulita has a tad bit of an independent streak. She still is very affectionate and wants to be close, but Jose` is really, really velcro. He also seems to be more trainable. He's very intellligent and quick to catch onto things. He has a huge sense of humor it would seem. He has a huge repertoire of vocalizataions that are very amusing and descriptive of his feelings and emotions. While he has a miniscule timid streak about a few select things, he's, in other areas a very strong presence.

Chulita has some pretty cute little antics herself and is always ready for a game... and very dear to me. Jose` is always so ready to try new adventures and do many things with me where Chulita has become sort of weird in her old age. lol. So, without using the word, "favorite" because it's so hard to say, I will say that there is that extra special bond, glue thing with Jose`. We seem to be on the same page every step of the way.
