Thanks for posting this Jeffrey!  Do you own one of the Top 10?  I think Labs have been #1 for years now!  Too bad Greyhounds never rank but then again it's probably good then there won't be so many back yard breeders that way for the Greyhound breed!

I heard this list on the radio and said, "WAIT, where are the pugs, frenchies, and Bostons?"  I have a cocker-lab.  She is a shelter rescue so I did not get "breed picky" when she was headed for the gas chamber in a matter of minutes.
