    "SDs" at Airport?

    Well, here's the thing about service dogs... A lot of people who could legitimately use service dogs don't have a service dog for whatever reason, but do have dogs who are helpful to them and address some of their difficulties. Maybe they have physical issues and the dog helps them to do...

    How about a golden retriever? The only two of your criteria they might not meet are size and the ability to withstand really hot whether. Goldens tend to be 65-75lb range for males and 60-70lb range for females, though, so they aren't *that* much above your maximum limit, as long as you...

    new pics

    I was going to guess Pit Bull, Bull Dog, and Labrador. :) So, pretty close, I think- pit bulls and bulldogs are descended from or closely related to mastiffs, right? Pretty neat mix. Good pictures. :)

    Suggest a Breed for Me!

    Sounds like you're in the market for a golden retriever! I especially thought so after reading "I love velcro 'I-want-to-be-with-you-and-touching-you-at-all-times' dogs". Goldens are virtually the definition of friendly. I had one as a child who would lick a hand drapped over a couch for an...
