Would you recommend the same breed of dog you have now to a friend? Why or why not?
It would really depend on the friend's situation, and why he or she wanted a dog. Also, it might be smart to look at dogs as individuals, and get one who's a good fit, and will be happy in with the family and the situation.
No, because my pets are unique and are not the breeds I would select if I were selecting a specific breed. Dogs just tend to come into our lives. Sometimes the ones that come into our lives aren't the ones we were looking for. I would not recommend someone get the same breed I have unless I talked to the person and found out that they had the personality and lifestyle suited to the breed I have. Pet choice is a very individual thing and it should be a very carefully thought out decision. It should be based on lifestyle, grooming needs, energy level, etc. It is important to note that dogs within a breed are individuals and each has a distinct personality - just because two dogs come from the same breed doesn't mean they will be a lot alike! They may share some common characteristics but each has a unique personality! One of my dogs is a mutt - so it would be totally impossible for anyone to get one like her!
Yes and no. We have 3 dogs. We have a Leonberger, a huge, easy-going beast of a dog. But his coat is horrendous and he seems to shed constantly and also seems very "slow" in picking things up. He is 4 and still marks everything - and knows better but waits until we are not looking.
Love him like crazy but no, I would not recommend the breed to others. We also have a German Shepherd and a Lab - love them and would recommend those breeds as they are easy to work with. The G.S. is very smart and understands most commands. The Lab is an absolute clown and I love being around him.
I have a mixed breed dog and do not know all of the breeds he is. He is a sweet, intelligent, easy going dog and almost everyone likes him. But no, each person wants something different from a dog. Different breeds have different characteristics. Each dog has their own personality. Pick one that goes with you, not with your friend.

How would you handle a friend who insults you and seems jealous?So, I have a friend. No, I can't just not be friends, because we are in the same circle of friends. She insults me. If something good happens, she points out the potential negative. If I get something new, she says, "Only the best...

What are your views on this statement:'Friends are the family you choose for yourself.'My opinion is: Friends and Family are two separate things...the concept is totally different...Friends share bits of their lives with you...Family 'lives' their life with you and 'families' are non-negotiable...
