Everyone loves dogs - except for movie villains, oddballs, and people whose allergies have given them a Pavlovian aversion. Still, such people are relatively rare; most people like or love dogs pretty thoroughly. Indeed, a great many people think more highly of dogs than they do of a human when they meet them and are far more inclined to like and trust a dog at first sight.
After all, you would never meet a human being and immediately cuddle them, smile as they climb all over you, and then let them lick your face - and if they did do all of those things, you certainly wouldn't respond by telling them that you love them and that they are a very good boy. When you meet a dog, however, this is par for the course.
Loving dogs doesn't mean loving all dogs equally. We all have our preferences. Some prefer a great big hairy creature whose mere presence means no one will mess with us. Other prefer something compact and apartment-friendly. Some of us like our dogs fierce and others like them gentle.
Which dog you love the most, and in what state you imagine that dog being the happiest, tells us which dog breed you are channeling on the inside. Let's find out!
