    I dont think it is 'wierd' or 'abnormal' that AF likes a certain type of breed and has stuck to it whole-heartedly. Its AF's choice, as she has already said.

    I like small dogs and not many people like them here - is it abnormal that I like small dogs? No, it is my choice and my decision and overall is MY LIFE to do with it as I choose!

    IMHO, it is HORRIBLE to say stuff like "thats not normal" or "thats strange." So you like all different kinds of breeds and another sticks with one type, are you right and their wrong?

    I personally want to own a Rottweiler one day - because I grew up with one. BUT I LOVE MUTTS - am I ashamed? NO WAY! Its MY choice and I for one will not give up my opinion because others dont respect my choices!

    I've always wanted a great dane.
    When OH and I started talking about what dog to get he said great dane was out because it was too big, now he wants on of the biggest dogs you can get, a Mastiff

    No one is having a go at AF's choices, but it is strange, that even as a 6 year old, you never thought of another breed, im sorry, but it is.

Its nothing to get defensive over, I mean honestly, if you're happy with everything, why get yourself so worked up over something that seriously means nothing.
    Well not all of us have the same desires or dreams even as kids. I wasn't very interested in dogs or pets at a young age, & when i was interested in having a pet fate stepped in & prevented me from having a pet of my own....even when i was 1st married the timing wasn't right either, i was pre-occupied with trying to conceive a child & keep from miscarrying so often (which took 5 yrs to achieve a live birth ) & I emotionally & physically did not need any added responsibilities (pet dog ) as i had my hands full with a prem baby to look after & raise.

    My mum has always had a love of Great Danes, they will always be her number one breed, but even she has owned other breeds, I can understand where AF is coming from but I have never known anyone to just stick with one breed, and one breed alone.
    Good on you for having that much dedication.

    I personally would love an Irish Wolfhound or a Borzoi. I think they are both beautiful and they have great personalities.... couch potatoes just like me

    There are a few others I also really like the look of such as the Irish Setter, American Cocker, Bull Terrier etc but none of them have a personality that fits my lifestyle.

    I just dont think its strange or wierd or abnormal, it can and does happen. I have strong opinions and I do tend to get a bit riled up.

    Comprehend where AF is coming from. I was born into a house with GSD's (plural) and growing up they surrounded me, year in, year out. No other dog in my years to adulthood ever interested me enough to want any other breed.

    There are so many breeds of dogs I love, think are terrific in many ways, but have not desired to share my life with one until Inca.

    I think when you have a deep-rooted life-long knowledge of, love for and understanding of a particular breed, it is VERY EASY to never want any other breed. Sounds strange and corny I realise, but osmetimes it is like a particular breed is part of you, they are 'in your blood.'

    I think this is the case with AF, and I understand it - immensely.
