A small sighthound. There is absolutely nothing about them that makes them a good type of dog for me, but I just love the looks of several of them. If I were ever in a position to own a dog that was just a for-fun dog and I didn't care about being able to compete it...I'd get a Cirneco Dell’Etna. Or even a big-ish Italian Greyhound. And if I could find a way to not break it.

Oh there is a woman here who runs agility with (and I'm guessing shows) her Cirneco and they are SO CUTE. She comes to trials with like 4 of them and walks them all together and it's ADORABLE.

We compete with a lady who does agility with silken windhounds if that helps.

Wolf like dogs (Husky, Mal, Klee Klai,), even though I live in a humid place that routinely is over 100 degrees in the summer and I don't like aloof dogs. I just love the "wild" look.

Doberman, I love how regal they look.

Great Dane, just love how they move and the fact they are complete couch potatoes.

Tibetan Mastiff, the picture says it all.


Any and all sight hounds.

No! Just no. I love my two dogs beyond belief, but my future dogs will be dogs with crazy drive to DO AGILITY. Not because I ask them to, but because they want it so badly. I am hanging up my pompoms and getting dogs I don't have too cheerlead around a course.

But I would take a little sighthound to sleep on my blanket next to me while watching TV at night

Feathered (straight hair) sighthounds like LHW, Silken Windhounds, Saluki

Huskies. So pretty.

Standard Schnauzers


All of these would be terrible ideas on so many levels but...pretty. In very different ways but...so pretty.

I want a greyhound.

I like... everything about Elsie, and Elsie's like... the opposite of a greyhound.

Maybe someday.
