新年快樂! If that means nothing to you, that’s ok! What it does mean to those who can read traditional Chinese is Happy New Year! This year is the year of the dog. So that’s what we’ll be talking about.
Before any racist jackasses make jokes about eating dogs though, we’re going to be talking about breeds. Specifically, which ones you think make the best doggos. While the internet in general seems to have odd fascinations with pugs and Shaba Inus, I’ve always favoured dachshunds. Yes, their long bodies and short legs make them disproportionate and frankly comical. They also seem to think they’re far larger and more able than they are, and will fight with other dogs with reckless abandon.
They are, however, loving and loyal to a fault, cute as hell, and just plain ridiculous. Of course, you will get people who say that anything smaller than a staffie isn’t a “real dog” (something I’ll only apply to Maltese poodles) and love bigger hounds. I’ve always loved Labradors and border collies.
Look, they’re all good dogs, Brent – but which dogs are best?
