Liesje, where's Pan? Sorry, it just dawned on me I havn't heard about one of favourite board hunks in awhile!

I love my two for different reasons. My doberman would crawl inside me and never leave, my GSD is content to be looking at me from across the room. However the GSD is an old soul, she's such a mother. She helps me a lot. My doberman will help me, if she's not busy bouncing off the walls. When she matures she'll be a fantastic helper

I have two dogs Smokey and Chief. I just recently got Chief and I have had Smokey since I was 7 he's 17 now. I can say that Smokey is my favorite and I will never love a dog as much as him, but I love them both so much and I treat them the same, and they both have the same rules.

R.I.P- Smokey my GSD/Husky. You are my hero, my heart, my soul and you will forever remain in my heart. You were a true companion. I love You and miss You so much. Run like the wind!!

It's share the love at my house, I have 3 and there is something special about each one that I love. If I am petting on one and another comes up I just use the other hand and love on it too.

I go to bed with my little girl and my shepherd, after about 10 min the shepherd will get down and get in his bed and shortly after my lab will sneak in the bed with me and stay the rest of the night.

My little one has cancer and is on borrowed time so she may get by with more than the other two.

I have three dogs plus my parents dog that comes to stay about a week a month and I can honestly say that I love them all equally for different reasons. However, I will say that I will get very upset if Sasha bullies any of the other dogs. Since she was the last one in, the dynamics between the other three are perfect and they are the best of friends. She came in and kind of upset the balance and when she decides to be a bully, I must admit that she drops a notch in my book. Generally, thats when I take her out for a walk on her own and gain her focus again. That usually takes care of it I do have to say though, I will never have this many dogs again... there are times that I feel like I'm not giving each dog enough attention Especially now that we're expecting I'm nervous its going to get even tougher...

I have 3 of my own and a temp Rottie that will soon go to her new home after some house training. I do have favorites - it is usually the one I am actively working and training. Just inevitable since I spend the majority of time with that dog. Wiva is the current fav - my only IPO/show dog at the moment. Such a happy, eager, devoted girl. Sticks to me like glue all day and shares my pillow at night. Works very hard to please. I have learned so much working with her. I will be forever grateful for what she has taught me, and I am excited for our future.

When I got Grim, it became crystal clear to me that I'd always have a preference to shepherds. When I had 2 GSDs, I loved them the same. I do love my Pug, but it's just not the same. It sounds heartless even writing it, but it's the truth. I don't know what it is about shepherds, but they are the only dog that I can attach to like that.
I can agree with you on that one. I never loved another dog as much as I love my GSD. They are addictive breed, sometimes I think they are part human because of all their emotions and intelligence. I had other dogs before and loved them very much but never as much as my GSD she is like a part of me we have a very strong bond. Its funny reading this thread because just today me and my husband were talking about getting a doberman puppy so that Arexa could play, I feel guilty leaving her alone when we leave the house and plus they would be a good pair they have so much energy I was thinking how Arexa would take it... I just don't know she is very jealous of when I give other pets attention...

My husband wants a girl-pup of his own, which I totally get because Zeke is so obviously my dog. I'd be the one taking her to puppy class, socializing, CGC etc, as he works and I'm an at home mom. I really, really worry that I just won't love her as much, because I think Zeke is pretty much my ideal dog. Maybe Blackthorn can just clone a female version of him?

I definitely have a favorite, although it's not the one I do the most with. Kya, my old girl has been my heart and soul for 12 years. She will get extra treats, gets to be loose in the house, and there are certain things only she gets to do (like go uptown for ice cream). Now I spend more time with Milla, we go to training twice a week, work on obedience and tracking almost daily, she goes running and hiking with me. Poor Phinneas claims he's left out but he is spoiled in his own right.
