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!
