My Best Friend is a Pit Bull and I’m a Chihuahua. What Breed Would You Be?

Growing up as a kid we were often asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. I always wanted to be a football player or a princess. I wanted to be pretty and tough. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that.

Now that I am an adult I am neither a football player nor a princess and I am quite disappointed in myself.  I have no idea where I went wrong. Why am I not sitting in a castle right now?

Anyway, now that I am adult no one ever asks me what I want to be when I grow up. They fail to realize that I haven’t grown up yet and I am still deciding.

Now they just ask me silly questions.

Take my best friend for instance….

The other day she and I went to lunch. As we were sitting there talking about foreign policies and gas prices she suddenly stopped and asked me if I could be any type of dog what would I be?

First of all, I was quite surprised and taken aback by her question. I mean I had no idea where it came from, one minute we were talking about the crazy price of gas and the next minute she was asking me what kind of dog I would to be. Of course, like any best friend would do after being asked a question like that,  I asked her what type of medication she was on,  which she rudely ignored and went right into talking about the dog breed she would be.

She would be a pit bull

Pit BullWhich is quite surprising because my BFF is about 90 pounds and just under 5 feet tall, but then she went on to tell me why she would be this breed:

Pit Bulls are strong and beautiful and misunderstood.

I give her an A+ for making me teary eyed here, but I would of pegged her for a toy poodle.

So after she let me in on her choice, then it was my turn to tell her what breed I would be, and to be quite honest I felt a little pressured. I mean her answer was good and she obviously had been thinking about this for awhile. I had no time to think because she was staring at me waiting for me to trump her. She knows that I crumble under pressure so the situation she put me in really wasn’t fair.

There’s more than 150 AKC dog breeds out there and I had no time to go through each one of them in my head so I quickly shouted out Chihuahua.

I would be a Chihuahua.

Of course my best friend laughed,  and I admit I was a bit offended, then she told me to explain myself.Chihuahua

Great.

It’s not bad enough that I had to pick what breed of dog I would be under such hostile circumstances but now I have to explain my choice.

Alright, here goes nothing:

What you see is not what you get with a Chihuahua. You have a small, almost miniature dog that just about fits in the palm of your hand. Chihuahua’s are adorable but………..you can never underestimate them. They have the guts to stand up to anything that is in their way, even if that something outweighs them by 100 pounds. They may be small but they mean business and they put their little hearts into everything that they do and they can yap forever.

Oh, and the fact that they can be carried around in a shoulder bag, helps….a lot.

So tell me, what type of dog breed would you be?Don’t forget to explain why!

Need a little help deciding? You can take The Dogster Breed Quiz  that will help you determine what breed you would be based on your personality! It said that I would be a Bulldog!

    I would be a Lab/German Shepherd mix, b/c we had one–the best, by far, of 8 mostly wonderful dogs who became members of our family over the years.

    ShyAnn was a glorious combination of sweetness (up to a point), playfulness, and off-the-charts intelligence. I say “sweetness up to a point,” b/c if she perceived someone or something was a threat to one of her family, she would go into attack mode, except she never attacked or bit anyone . . . ever. I still mourn her premature death, which occurred over six years ago.

    [Reply]

    Rich Reply:

    Not really used to these blogs, but this one seems very non-descript & un-offensive. I’ve only raised large breed dogs since a teen. Seems so long ago now! Labs, G-sheps, Vislas & back to Labs. Well, my last best friend “Rix”, had to be humanely eunthanized after a “long fifteen year friendship”, last July (actually on the 4th).

    My daughter had moved back in with a cute little Mini Red Dachshund, named Penny. I don’t know who fell in love first, me or her! But her first night in our home, she left my daughter’s room, zoomed upstairs, burrowed to the bottom of my bed & licked my feet, til we both drifted off. She had her little “puppy dreams” (only ayear old) and I was very comforted. Anyway, she became my “red rocket”, running sideways across the furniture, playing fetch, everything. All at “light speed”. My wife & I read-up on the breed & immediately built “rocket-ramps”, thru-out our house. I guess they don’t do well w/ stairs, in the long-run.

    Although, I really needed another partner, for daily ride-alongs…, my other “partner”(wife, the smart one), kept me in check, until about Thanksgiving. I was seriously considering a G-Shep/Malinois, when she found an AKC Kennel, that had a good reputation for Mini-Dachshunds. On a trip to our cabin, we stopped in. they had the most unusual collection of pups, I had ever seen! We brought Penny along to help pick. Penny & I were really attached to the ugliest little puppy of the mix.

    That was that, we picked that little pup named “Lucy”. On the way home, renamed her “Luna” & the rest is “life” as the “companions”, of the fiestiest, intelligent, independent, cute, little critters I ever met. Wouldn’t change a thing! Red-Rocket & Luna-Tuna! Life is good!!!
    Thx, Rich

    PUG! Fun, loving, wants to please, fairly easy to train, loves everyone (and thinks everyone does/should love them). Great dog for children and older people, too. Although full of energy, is completely happy just lying beside you or on your lap — great pet for someone who wants a companion. The pug’s nature will push them to go as long as you are going; they are determined and do not give up easily which is a definite plus when training. Yes, they do shed constantly but that is a very minor factor when you find everything else to be so perfectly suited for you!

    I will be a mixed breed dog, one who is is succesful and free outdors, knows how to own his food, sleep under the big blue sky, be friendly with many people yet do as he wishes.

    I have had several breeds and I loved the all, but they all developed one or the other genetical disorders. My golden retriever had diabetes, my french poodle developed cushing, a cocker-poodle mix has congenital blindness and my beautiful 1 year old jack russel terrier had to be operated because of legg perthes.

    We mess with the genetics of dogs, we push too hard to get pure breeds, we are damaging them really badly!!!

We’ve had three toy poodles, loved every one of them, always become “family.” Now we have a Maltipoo and she is perfect too. We love the size of both because we travel and they can go most places we go, and both enjoy riding in the car–anywhere, any time. Our last poodle lived 19 years with us, the Maltipoo is just ten months old and we hope to have her around as long.

Like to hunt and will chase anything that can fly or run until its exhausted and then catch it. They are adorable and love attention too. They are good watchdogs because of there loud barking and awareness of any stranger and will attack to keep there territory save. They love people, to be around them, on their lap, on their sofas, on their beds, like to barrow into the bedding, in the car and everywhere they are aloud to go to. If feeding properly and healthy and take good care of, will be around for at least 14 to 18 years as a good friend. We as humans can learn a lot from these animals because they always happy even when we are not nice to them, there will be a wagging in their tail to let us know they are happy to see us.

    i would love to be a jack russel 😀 my baby tazzy (5) is the most loving, smart, socail, gentle, playful and faithful dog i have ever met! but id have to ask for good owners too as i believe a big part of us turn out the way we are from our upbringing and experiences….. if we do something wrong how do we know its wrong before learning whats right and wrong if we get hurt its hard to trust and so on…. i believe that leaves a imprint in our minds forever even if it is subconsciously (thats including our pets)…… wouldnt it be lovely to do what u want when u want……oh i might just sleep all day today or play with my toys or maybee get as many pats as possible (god that would be good my own personal masseuse) 😀 or maybe all of the above lol….. oh and maybe catch a fly and spit it out just for fun O.o sorry tazz but that last one does not sound to nice to me at all lol….. so any ideas on how long will it take for me to grow up in to the most loving creature? as i also am still waiting to be a princess and a astronaut 😉 lol

    Tazzy sounds adorable and the fact that you would catch a fly if you were a Jack Russel is awesome!

    I would be a cavalier King Charles. They are extremely loyal and loveable. They were bread to keep the royal ladies warm in the winter so they always stay very close. They are the perfect size unless you want to carry them around a lot. They would love it but are a little too heavy, 13 to 22 pounds. They are obedient, easy to train and try hard to please.

    Cocker Spaniels are my dog of choice. Each one is a real individual. They are, as a whole joyful,loyal, eager to please, affectionate, love to play, age gracefully. I have found the more time I have spent training, the closer they stay with me. Especially the females we have had but for one exception, a very devoted male who died before his time. Love their beautiful coats and feathers. Why they have become less popular, I cannot imagine. They are heaven-sent.

    Mixed Breed..I’ve had dogs all my life and I love all the breed’s I’ve owned. I don’t see that any of them are dumb, just many have owners that don’t train them. Some breeds are easier to train then others and seem to want to please more in the beginning but I love them all. I agree mixed breeds can pick up the best of the breeds and have less health problems.
