DOGS DOGS DOGS!! I love 'em all. big n' small. and my next "cat" will be a Japanese Chin - outside of all the cats i find outside my house, that I feed for months, and threaten to take in until i get help finding them homes. i got 2 of the world's best kitties, so I'm good.... but the rest of you... you need one. yes you do...
soooooooooo..... if Dobermans become extinct... or i just go back to my roots (was raised with Afghans) - I will go to the source. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azawakh the AZAWAKH!
I fell in love with this breed - so i nerded it up on FB
Abbi A. Allan BTW - all dogs are wolves. they can all interbreed. basically, if you - ..wellllll... those Germans and their genetics.... BUT - their study on Foxes - is pretty amazing.

Did i mention I learned a lot about dogs today? Nerd it up!
