Top Four 25: Dog Breeds 🐶


00:00:00   hi everybody top four is back we are

00:00:02   going to be talking this week on top

00:00:05   four about our favorite dog breeds yay

00:00:08   because everyone loves dogs and since

00:00:12   everything's kind of a little bit crappy

00:00:14   right now

00:00:15   in the political world we want to focus

00:00:17   on our lovable furry companions that

00:00:21   bring us so much joy and here joining us

00:00:24   this month is two friends of ours who

00:00:27   love dogs and they will tell you all

00:00:31   about how much they love dogs

00:00:32   it is Joel and Stephanie Houseman hi

00:00:35   guys hey they're fine Joel does a

00:00:38   podcast called Ice Station Houseman

00:00:40   Stephanie tweets awesome stuff and has

00:00:44   pictures of her adorable baby and dogs

00:00:46   and lots of dogs so if you love dogs you

00:00:49   should follow Steph we're gonna pretend

00:00:51   for the duration of the episode that you

00:00:53   don't also own cats I'm actually being

00:00:56   attacked by a cat as we record this

00:00:58   right now I'm wearing a cat t-shirt so

00:01:01   like six or seven years ago our

00:01:02   Instagram feed so it was Instagram

00:01:04   around six or seven years ago whatever

00:01:06   we use to trike photos so it was like

00:01:09   all cat photos and then we got dogs and

00:01:12   then it became like all dog photos and

00:01:14   then up until about six and a half

00:01:16   months ago and then we got a baby and

00:01:17   now it's all baby photos as you do well

00:01:20   for a while it was house photos when you

00:01:22   were building your house oh yeah I

00:01:23   forgot about that yeah I think it's

00:01:25   reasonable whoever is youngest in the

00:01:27   family gets most of the pictures taken

00:01:28   of them yeah

00:01:30   it's fair it's only fair some of us do

00:01:32   try to you know pay attention to how

00:01:35   many dog follows that we are posting to

00:01:37   make sure that the dogs are getting an

00:01:39   adequate amount of attention we should

00:01:41   have a discussion about your dogs to

00:01:45   gram oh my god we need to talk about

00:01:47   Marco and Instagram dogs because let me

00:01:51   just lay it out there

00:01:52   the majority of things that he looks at

00:01:53   now on Instagram are adorable dogs and

00:01:56   he follows so many dog and dog couple's

00:01:59   dog couples meeting dogs that live

00:02:01   together who are not related sometimes

00:02:04   they are sometimes they are they won't

00:02:06   get into the breed yet we own a certain

00:02:09   breed of dog and there's like a cult

00:02:13   of this type of breed owner on Instagram

00:02:16   I'm going read now that are obsessed

00:02:18   with their particular breed of dog so

00:02:21   much so that the breed of dog is in the

00:02:23   Instagram username

00:02:25   oh yeah and she follows like 400 of them

00:02:28   her Instagram feed is non-stop photos of

00:02:31   this particular type of breed of dog

00:02:33   which are the breed we own and so like I

00:02:36   look at her Instagram and it's like oh

00:02:37   yeah that's the guy that owns the three

00:02:40   of them in Texas and that's the guy that

00:02:42   I think you could spoil it spoil it Joel

00:02:44   what what breed you guys because

00:02:46   everyone knows what we have we have a

00:02:47   ship poop and which is a shih tzu poodle

00:02:49   mix and you guys have two very spoiled

00:02:53   and very lovable Cavalier King Charles

00:02:55   Spaniels I'm George the sixth aka Bertie

00:02:59   and Lizzie Bennet SM as in like birdie

00:03:02   the King speech for all of our male

00:03:04   animals are named after Colin Firth

00:03:06   characters for or for fans of the new

00:03:09   Netflix series the crown the king at the

00:03:12   very beginning that ends up dying

00:03:14   that's birdie as long as you have a

00:03:15   system I think it works yeah we do but

00:03:18   yeah Marcos Instagram feed is pretty

00:03:20   hilarious and usually while we're you

00:03:22   know getting settled down to go to bed

00:03:24   he's like shoving pictures of dogs in my

00:03:26   face from Instagram look at this one

00:03:29   my favorite one is um Kirk the floof I

00:03:33   love his name I can always tell when

00:03:35   Marco's on Instagram because Twitter

00:03:38   starts becoming it's always funny when

00:03:41   you share a photo from Instagram it's

00:03:42   like if they don't title the photo it's

00:03:45   like the username shared a photo and

00:03:47   Marco how many followers did you lose

00:03:49   over posting dogs on it on Twitter about

00:03:51   a thousand posted dog photos non-stop

00:03:56   totally worth it

00:03:58   did you get a lot of those I only follow

00:04:00   you for tech to tweet more about tech

00:04:02   you know I did usually I would just

00:04:04   block those people figuring well if I

00:04:06   block you it unfollowed me and so I'll

00:04:08   just solve this problem for you all

00:04:11   those people are like I don't know what

00:04:13   I did Marco blocked me can you and they

00:04:16   all tweet at me to get them unblocked do

00:04:19   you do the do you believe them blocked

00:04:21   or do you do the block unblock trick

00:04:23   usually if they're just complaining

00:04:24   about what I'm posting I'll do the block

00:04:25   on block trick

00:04:26   bass I love that not many people

00:04:28   understand how that works it forces the

00:04:30   other person to unfollow you and then

00:04:31   you unblock them so they can't see that

00:04:33   they're blocked anymore they can still

00:04:35   they can still see your tweets but it

00:04:36   just forces them to unfollow you if

00:04:38   there's no paper trail like I kind of

00:04:39   like people on Twitter complain in I've

00:04:41   seen a bunch of people complaining

00:04:42   recently about this alleged unfollow bug

00:04:45   where they will just find that they have

00:04:47   just mysteriously unfollowed somebody

00:04:50   they thought they were following and I

00:04:52   wonder how many cases of this alleged

00:04:54   bug are just people who were block I'm

00:04:56   blocked by that other person I'm I'm a

00:04:58   hundred percent convinced it's block on

00:05:00   block yeah this is not a tech show we're

00:05:03   gonna be talking about some dogs except

00:05:05   for the time that someone's husband

00:05:07   muted her because she started a tumblr

00:05:09   page for all the dogs that she wasn't

00:05:12   allowed to adopt I need Joel that was

00:05:15   cool they are heard latest kik as she

00:05:19   wants a bunny no you don't want that

00:05:21   there allergy clouds they're just

00:05:23   they're the worst for any allergy

00:05:24   anything ever started this recently I

00:05:27   was like no we we have a seven month old

00:05:29   baby no no more animals adorable I mean

00:05:32   you already have a houseful full of

00:05:34   animals so you're already like you know

00:05:35   at some minor risk here however yeah

00:05:37   bunnies are even worse than cats because

00:05:39   they're for their fur is like as

00:05:42   irritating as cat fur to certain people

00:05:44   like me yeah but they're always in

00:05:46   motion so it makes it just fills the air

00:05:49   so much faster than cats do and so much

00:05:52   more severely it like I cannot be in the

00:05:55   same house as a rabbit i if there's like

00:05:58   if there's like cats in a house I can be

00:06:01   okay for like a couple hours without

00:06:03   having a problem but if there's a rabbit

00:06:05   I'm out of there in ten minutes

00:06:06   like it's really it's the worst but you

00:06:09   can put a bunny hutch outside then why

00:06:11   bother then they're just gonna freeze

00:06:13   well I guess you guys don't have winter

00:06:14   down there anyway yeah let's talk about

00:06:16   better animals so I think we should

00:06:21   start at our number fours alright we

00:06:23   said that these don't necessarily have

00:06:25   to be dogs that you want to own it's

00:06:28   just dog breeds that you really like

00:06:31   also it is not just American Kennel Club

00:06:35   kind of distinguished dogs I believe you

00:06:39   could also do any combination

00:06:40   they're of feel free to mix and match

00:06:42   your dog breeds as you see fit for your

00:06:45   top 4 there are so many mixed breeds now

00:06:47   that are treated as such a high pedigree

00:06:50   of like a what quote-unquote purebred

00:06:53   that it's I don't know I think those old

00:06:55   stodgy roles are way out of date like

00:06:58   the cabochons do you always cheat on

00:07:00   Bertie and Lizzie with their so those

00:07:02   are cabochons so I thought they were

00:07:03   Cavaliers yeah those are cabochon

00:07:05   I like the calves Apuzzo oh I really

00:07:09   like mid Nidhi from Elia yeah so it

00:07:13   seems like while we're trying to stop

00:07:16   talking about Instagram dogs never stop

00:07:20   it seems like there is the best

00:07:22   Instagram dog community in Australia yes

00:07:25   I follow so many Australian internet

00:07:27   dogs I don't know what must be dogs down

00:07:29   there they're soaked yes yeah like they

00:07:31   have they just have an amazing Instagram

00:07:33   dog community in Australia for some

00:07:35   reason and I really enjoy it well Ned

00:07:37   has a lot of cute friends yeah that does

00:07:40   have a lot of cute friends Annette is

00:07:41   adorable alright anyway alright okay so

00:07:44   for the role of the top four dice hold

00:07:47   on I said get something up just rolls

00:07:50   let me roll something deaf go first okay

00:07:54   so my list of honorable mentions first

00:07:56   LD R of course took me a long time to

00:08:03   narrow this down to a top four look she

00:08:05   said she's done a lot of research she's

00:08:07   done a lot of prep for this I did maybe

00:08:09   a half hour of prep I would also like to

00:08:11   read some of the American Kennel Club

00:08:13   descriptions like a very the brief like

00:08:15   couple word descriptions about each dog

00:08:17   breed that we choose so once we get into

00:08:18   our top fours I will be reading a couple

00:08:21   of those out for everybody oh you did

00:08:22   some research I just have a webpage open

00:08:24   okay that counts and I have some cut and

00:08:28   paste total plagiarism from Wikipedia

00:08:31   here going on in my - but my I realized

00:08:35   I am I am for my top fours I am

00:08:37   definitely not a big dog person like I

00:08:40   thought I was doing this too much to my

00:08:43   husband

00:08:44   surprise going on right now because I

00:08:46   have always wanted a new fee or a

00:08:48   mastiff or a Bernese Mountain Dog and

00:08:51   our next-door neighbor is the most

00:08:53   durable Newfie and is supposed to be

00:08:55   close to 200 pounds when he is fully

00:08:58   grown and I literally sat in our

00:09:01   breakfast room staring into their

00:09:03   backyard the day he came home and worked

00:09:05   for an entire day looking into their

00:09:08   backyard so I could see him when he

00:09:10   first graced our next-door neighbor's

00:09:13   property she stalks our neighbor's dogs

00:09:15   well he was the cutest little fluffy pup

00:09:17   it was I thought yeah you took some

00:09:20   awesome poet photos of him I loved him

00:09:22   but that being said Samoyeds huskies

00:09:27   Malamutes new fees and Bernie's all are

00:09:29   in my honorable mention list my top for

00:09:32   my first is gonna be a boomy what is a

00:09:35   poo me is that the Zuckerberg dog hold

00:09:37   on no that is a pulley oh my mistake

00:09:40   you're right

00:09:41   the reason the Poli did not make the

00:09:42   list is because it actually is a

00:09:44   Zuckerberg that's actually a downside

00:09:47   downside I'm like no I can't do this but

00:09:51   they're actually very similar they're

00:09:53   both Hungarian herding dogs but a poo me

00:09:56   doesn't shed versus a Puli has dreads

00:10:00   okay it has no description here on the

00:10:04   American Kennel Club but underneath the

00:10:06   Puli it says loyal smart home loving

00:10:09   strong-willed but trainable and then

00:10:11   there's a picture of a fluffier version

00:10:13   without dreadlocks and it looks adorable

00:10:15   so a poo me has almost how do I describe

00:10:20   this like little ears that kind of come

00:10:23   up and flop down Terrier like and will

00:10:26   sit up on a time legs and beg and that's

00:10:29   considered what if you look at a lot of

00:10:31   the YouTube videos what they'll call

00:10:32   sitting pretty for the poo me and is

00:10:36   just adorable

00:10:38   the reason I really liked the poo me yes

00:10:41   the picture that Marco's showing short

00:10:46   curly hair yeah it has weird proportions

00:10:49   like the ears are really distinctive

00:10:51   either they're so big they offered it

00:10:53   for the size says that what made you

00:10:54   pick this dog do you know anyone who has

00:10:56   a dog like this or you just like it from

00:10:58   dog shows I liked it from dog shows and

00:11:01   it was recently and 2016 considered part

00:11:05   of fish I guess official part of the aka

00:11:07   see it's recognized now for official AKC

00:11:11   purposes nice so I just thought it was

00:11:13   adorable

00:11:14   I'm doing all of this based on my

00:11:17   adorability factor that's that's awesome

00:11:20   no nope factors are individual and

00:11:23   personal so no judge like rolling his

00:11:26   eyes I can hear it from here I'm just

00:11:28   shaking my head

00:11:29   well that so I was looking at photos of

00:11:31   the other one you mentioned the pulley

00:11:33   the one used you didn't pick is that

00:11:35   that's the that's the one that looks

00:11:37   like a mom yeah someone took the stick

00:11:40   off of a mop and it's just the end of

00:11:42   the month gotta admit they're adorable

00:11:44   and they're hilarious when they run yes

00:11:47   it's like Bob Marley coming at you in

00:11:49   slow motion slow motion Pooley running

00:11:52   is should be a sport it's just it's kind

00:11:55   of impressive that they exist at all

00:11:57   like and you wonder like first of all

00:11:59   how did this come to be

00:12:01   second off secondly like how is this dog

00:12:04   not tripping over its own dreads yeah

00:12:06   how to understand what seas or hurting

00:12:09   dogs so they're hurting sheep with

00:12:12   dreadlocks are they supposed to blend in

00:12:14   with the Sheep well actually when I

00:12:18   watched one of the videos the dreadlocks

00:12:22   and the the hair and the fur that they

00:12:24   have actually protects them from wolves

00:12:26   because if they're attacked they're only

00:12:28   getting the the dreads they're not

00:12:30   actually hitting the body of the dog hmm

00:12:32   that's interesting and so that's part of

00:12:34   the the natural defense of the dog but

00:12:36   the grooming that goes into keeping

00:12:40   their their coat coat using air quotes

00:12:43   here clean just I I couldn't take care

00:12:48   of that personally at Burton Lizzy just

00:12:50   take so much time as it is but um you

00:12:52   have to pull each individual dread Boyle

00:12:55   gem there's just a lot of upkeep that

00:12:57   goes into wow just so let just like a

00:12:59   human's dread it's not like a natural

00:13:01   thing you have to maintain them exactly

00:13:03   yeah okay I could see the wolf also

00:13:05   going what the hell is this and running

00:13:07   good camouflage is like like he could

00:13:10   just hide out in the mops and that are

00:13:12   nearby like find the nearest mop closet

00:13:14   just hang out there

00:13:15   the wolf will never find him in one of

00:13:17   the episodes of dog whisperer

00:13:19   I remember him

00:13:20   Caeser tying back the hair of a dog that

00:13:23   had hair over its eyes because he said

00:13:25   that the other dogs will think that that

00:13:27   dog is weird if they can't see his eyes

00:13:29   and I think that every single time now I

00:13:31   see a duck with no eyes because the hair

00:13:33   is all grown over I'm like up the other

00:13:35   dogs are gonna think he's weird alright

00:13:39   Joel what do you got oh we should

00:13:41   explain that Joel was previously a cat

00:13:43   person

00:13:44   and now yeah has seen the light so so my

00:13:48   criteria for picking were that it has to

00:13:52   have been a dog that I have not owned

00:13:54   but interacted with in some way mm-hmm

00:13:57   through a neighbor or seeing him at a

00:13:58   farmers market or whatever another thing

00:14:01   I picked was not necessarily something I

00:14:04   wanted to own but just a breed that I

00:14:07   liked for whatever reason and I'll say

00:14:09   so I would never want to own this breed

00:14:12   due to maintenance and health issues and

00:14:15   all sorts of things but the English

00:14:17   bulldog because they are fairly cute

00:14:20   actually really smart and trainable if

00:14:23   they're well trained and well behaved

00:14:25   they can be really gentle and really

00:14:27   friendly and we've see them we we have a

00:14:31   Stephanie as a side business that takes

00:14:33   us to farmers markets a lot in this

00:14:35   summer and there's a few that come to

00:14:37   our farmers markets that are really

00:14:38   friendly

00:14:39   I like their face I like how they're

00:14:41   they can kind of be like a little snort

00:14:45   II I think it's cute how they're they're

00:14:47   like I mean that's part of their health

00:14:49   issues that they can have respiratory

00:14:50   problems due to the way they were bred

00:14:52   that way you had to clean all their

00:14:54   little rolls yeah and you have to make

00:14:56   their face area it's a lot to maintain

00:14:58   because you have to clean them often so

00:15:00   that they don't become sick if you know

00:15:02   whatnot but yeah

00:15:04   English bulldog all right TIFF number

00:15:06   four number four I kind of have a tie

00:15:10   nope nope no tie gonna stick with it

00:15:12   it's gonna pick it focus I'm gonna go

00:15:15   with a husky because I think they are

00:15:17   beautiful dogs they I don't know I just

00:15:20   really like that Spitz face I like the

00:15:23   dog looking face I like when they look

00:15:24   like foxes or wolves I think that's

00:15:26   really cool I love the whole idea of

00:15:28   sled dogs and working in a team and

00:15:30   they're so cute and they sleep in their

00:15:32   little Donuts and then the snow

00:15:34   well Donna its I just it's so cute even

00:15:38   though they're very big they shed a lot

00:15:40   and I like sometimes when they have like

00:15:42   those crazy two colored eyes I think

00:15:44   that's awesome

00:15:45   I had a Keisha and she had the two

00:15:47   colored eyes

00:15:48   you had one I did I had a husky Malamute

00:15:51   mix we've rescued her from the pound one

00:15:53   day oh I was like dad I want a dog crazy

00:15:58   the pound she was loyal

00:16:01   I totally agree with this pic I love it

00:16:03   yeah I've always been very very into the

00:16:05   Huskies I think they're really cool but

00:16:07   they're just too big and too sheddy for

00:16:11   our lifestyle also I think we live in

00:16:13   too warm of a climate even though we

00:16:14   live in New York I feel like those dogs

00:16:16   when I see them walking around in the

00:16:18   summertime we just always say like I am

00:16:20   hot the colder climate I always like

00:16:24   seeing the videos online of like a puppy

00:16:28   or even an older malla me that that our

00:16:30   husky that um uh is doing the little

00:16:33   like a rodeo trying to sing to music or

00:16:36   how you know to an owner making noises I

00:16:38   also love the videos or anything about

00:16:40   puppies of a larger breed and their feet

00:16:43   are ODEs very big and they always trip

00:16:45   over their feet I think that's a perfect

00:16:48   portions are so out of scale to

00:16:51   everything else and it just makes them

00:16:53   so cute they're also very protective

00:16:55   mm-hmm of children so they're very good

00:17:00   just they know they're very loyal to

00:17:03   their families mm-hmm yeah and we used

00:17:07   to joke that if anyone broke into the

00:17:09   house they weren't leaving yeah love

00:17:12   love the Huskies solid number four I

00:17:15   also want to have my honorable mentions

00:17:17   I I think sheepdogs are adorable

00:17:20   because Markel keeps showing me pictures

00:17:22   of sheepdogs so I can't stop I do really

00:17:25   like my brothers Australian Shepherd

00:17:26   mm-hmm he's very fluffy although he

00:17:28   steals things from the counter but is so

00:17:32   fluffy and there are a lot of very very

00:17:35   cute dog breeds out there that I wish I

00:17:37   could have included in my list but you

00:17:39   got it you got a focus focus or you can

00:17:42   do what I did it for my number four pick

00:17:43   uh oh and my number four pick you know

00:17:46   because I have our

00:17:47   specifics for numbers 1 2 & 3 my number

00:17:51   4 pick is pretty much every other dog

00:17:53   you can't do that I can do that oh

00:17:59   you've just picked every dog I said

00:18:01   pretty much every other dog Oh pretty

00:18:04   much every other there's gonna be

00:18:05   there's gonna be three to beat it but

00:18:07   there's you know but pretty much every

00:18:08   other dog is like I feel like there are

00:18:10   so many dogs you know first of all

00:18:12   there's mutts

00:18:13   you know mixed breed dogs or who knows

00:18:15   what they are dogs and they're great too

00:18:17   and and there's so many dogs that are

00:18:19   also just kind of like historically like

00:18:21   very popular breeds that are that we now

00:18:23   consider fairly boring like any kind of

00:18:25   like you know Labrador or golden

00:18:27   retriever like breeds are just like very

00:18:29   common and have been very common for a

00:18:30   long time and so now when people think

00:18:33   about Oh what are your favorite dog

00:18:34   breeds they often will pick something

00:18:35   else that's newer or you know more

00:18:38   exotic or more more like interesting

00:18:40   looking in some way or something like

00:18:41   that but all dogs are great like I love

00:18:44   all dogs and so I they're they're

00:18:46   they're very very few breeds that I that

00:18:50   I tend not to get along with if I

00:18:53   interact with them they're good dogs

00:18:54   Marcus and and usually like and even

00:18:58   even when there's been like individual

00:19:00   dogs that I don't really care for that

00:19:02   I've met in life usually it's the owners

00:19:05   fault for like bad training and stuff

00:19:07   it's not usually like the fault of the

00:19:09   breed or the the exact dog you know it's

00:19:12   almost always the owners fault and and

00:19:15   so it's there really are no like bad dog

00:19:18   breeds you know they're all they're all

00:19:20   good and morale can be good if properly

00:19:25   trained and properly you know kept in

00:19:27   good physical and mental health and

00:19:29   that's that's not easy for a lot of

00:19:31   people like some people obviously pick

00:19:32   breeds that need lots of work and they

00:19:34   keep them in their house all day so they

00:19:35   get restless and destructive and

00:19:36   everything but that's not really the

00:19:38   breeds fault that's like a bad fit for

00:19:39   what the person got for their life so

00:19:42   it's like there really are no bad breeds

00:19:44   and so I kind of wanted to use devote my

00:19:45   number4 to all the other dogs out there

00:19:47   that are either so often poorly trained

00:19:50   or you know bought for the wrong reasons

00:19:52   and that and get a bad reputation for

00:19:54   being destructive or violent or whatever

00:19:56   or all the all the dogs out there that

00:20:00   are

00:20:01   breeds or that are so boring that no one

00:20:03   thinks about them when they think about

00:20:04   the top dog breeds so number four is to

00:20:06   all of them because they're all good

00:20:07   dogs

00:20:08   you're so dog climatic Wow you should

00:20:12   you should run for president of dogs I

00:20:14   might have a good chance dogs tend to

00:20:16   like me anyway but that sounds great

00:20:18   honey I'm so glad that you picked all

00:20:20   dogs actually pick four like solid

00:20:24   regular picks I don't know I kind of did

00:20:26   kind of a little bit but I did that for

00:20:28   the vegetable show so I couldn't do that

00:20:29   again let's not freak out the audience

00:20:32   and have you actually follow the rules

00:20:34   of the show not two episodes in a row no

00:20:36   it would be madness anyway I want to

00:20:38   read what because I forgot already what

00:20:41   I was doing because I can't stay

00:20:43   consistent anyway

00:20:44   bulldog calm courageous and friendly

00:20:46   dignified but amusing you forgot a line

00:20:49   there that was the Haussmann's need a

00:20:51   bulldog Siberian Husky friendly gentle

00:20:57   dignified alert but not aggressive thank

00:21:01   you everyone

00:21:02   there you go so for all those people

00:21:04   that don't know their dog breeds as well

00:21:05   as we do now you have a little bit of

00:21:07   context all right staff number three

00:21:09   here we go I am going with a dog that I

00:21:12   have not personally had but a good

00:21:16   friend of mine did for those of you that

00:21:19   know me will probably read into this as

00:21:21   well it's the dachshund I have have

00:21:25   friends that have had little doxies that

00:21:28   I just think are adorable the Queen also

00:21:30   has them which also goes along with my

00:21:32   little royal fix I'm very much into

00:21:34   Pride and Prejudice and all of like the

00:21:37   British type things so of course I had

00:21:40   to include some royal dogs on my list

00:21:44   that's all I can really say about the

00:21:46   dachshund I just had to do the dachshund

00:21:48   all right so underneath the American

00:21:50   Kennel Club da da Sheehan what we've

00:21:54   watched a puppy show and they set it in

00:21:56   a crazy way and we're like that makes

00:21:58   sense

00:21:58   what was it fashioned know that it was

00:22:01   they had they there was like an

00:22:02   Australian narrator of course it was

00:22:05   like a - hound it sounded more like

00:22:07   hound yeah i'll take a dodj hound it was

00:22:10   like - hound - that's what makes total

00:22:13   sense because they can be

00:22:14   and stuff yeah and we're like that is so

00:22:17   much more I get it anyway so here it

00:22:19   says go look up the word spunky well

00:22:23   wait did you see a photo of Adashi I did

00:22:26   not so that's what says that's literally

00:22:29   thank you I'm gonna do this hold on yeah

00:22:33   spunky in quotes

00:22:41   whoa funky from Rena from yeah nailed it

00:22:49   yeah I'm seeing that so no I keep going

00:22:52   this I've seen a lot of pictures there

00:22:53   of different different letters and

00:22:55   there's somebody in bikini bikini sorry

00:22:59   any dodging pictures so haven't either

00:23:02   but yeah I though they are very cute I

00:23:05   especially like the long haired ones oh

00:23:07   yes look so fluffy and when they're

00:23:11   puppies they're really cute and I just

00:23:12   like they kind of walk like a slinky

00:23:15   like Jill I guess slinky was a you know

00:23:18   the slinky dog is kind of a Dawson right

00:23:20   they are I think so right I think so

00:23:23   yeah yeah so cute clothes I mean with

00:23:26   little kids I think you know they could

00:23:28   be kind of cute together I like when

00:23:29   they dress up as hot dogs or tacos for

00:23:31   Halloween Oh a taco in the classic

00:23:35   costume what a long edible sandwich type

00:23:38   thing is a hot dog a sandwich is it

00:23:40   that's for another show it's for another

00:23:42   show

00:23:43   let's not get into it now anyway all

00:23:47   right Steph anything else to say about

00:23:48   your - and dachshund or any way that

00:23:51   anyone wants to say it - hound I'm just

00:23:53   adding to my list of dogs that we have

00:23:55   to get like next week you should get one

00:23:58   of every breed so you have like a full

00:24:00   deck like you know I plan on it we

00:24:03   rescue dogs here at the Haussmann Dog

00:24:06   Rescue Society but we only have room for

00:24:08   one of each type unless you want to go

00:24:10   like Noah's Ark style and get two of

00:24:12   each type dog Factory well it depends on

00:24:16   which two you get yeah I mean we're not

00:24:18   going to discriminate yeah we don't

00:24:19   discriminate all right Jill number three

00:24:21   an English Springer Spaniel I think I

00:24:26   know this I'm gonna loose of it I'm

00:24:27   very pretty they kind of look like and

00:24:29   I've mainly picked it because of they

00:24:32   kind of look like that I think they're

00:24:33   so pretty yeah they're in the spaniel

00:24:35   fan of course pants spaniel long ears

00:24:39   but they're more like a there's a

00:24:42   specific color scheme of Cavalier King

00:24:45   Charles Spaniel called a Blenheim and

00:24:47   these more closely resemble a Blenheim

00:24:49   Cavalier although they're instead of a

00:24:52   big red and white are reddish and white

00:24:55   it's more darker brown if they're well

00:24:58   groomed their coats are beautiful the

00:25:01   Kennel Club's description of them are

00:25:03   friendly obedient and playful friendly

00:25:05   playful beating it at home hard-working

00:25:07   and steady in the field so they are a I

00:25:10   think they're commonly used as a bird

00:25:12   dog

00:25:12   they look like a bird dog yeah what does

00:25:15   that mean alright I grew up in southern

00:25:17   rural Virginia bird dogs are if you're

00:25:21   out say I think it's mostly commonly

00:25:23   duck hunting or quail hunting some sort

00:25:27   of hunting sport in which a bird is

00:25:31   hiding in a tree or on the ground

00:25:33   and flies from its hiding spot and you

00:25:35   quickly use something like a shotgun to

00:25:37   kill it and shoot it out of the sky this

00:25:40   a bird dog is a is certain breeds of

00:25:42   dogs that are trained to rush to where

00:25:45   the carcasses retrieve it and bring it

00:25:47   back to the hunter so literally the dog

00:25:48   in duck hunt for the NES yes a springer

00:25:55   spaniel he always laughed at me that's

00:26:02   fantastic yes so I had some neighbors

00:26:04   when I was a in my childhood that had a

00:26:07   pair of these super friendly super

00:26:10   loving a little bit bigger than a dog I

00:26:14   would ever want to own there I would say

00:26:16   medium sized and they can be super

00:26:17   energetic they want to run outdoors so

00:26:21   that's all right yeah they seem like

00:26:23   they are they probably part of the

00:26:24   supporting group yeah all right my

00:26:27   number three is a Portuguese water dog

00:26:30   nice I think they are adorable I love

00:26:33   their color scheme it was super cute

00:26:35   that Barack Obama had one we see a

00:26:38   couple of them too - sorry sorry - hello

00:26:41   because that is that they're incredibly

00:26:42   excited to power to find now cuz

00:26:44   everybody wanted them once once once the

00:26:46   Obamas got them so yeah like there's a

00:26:49   couple around our neighborhood and they

00:26:50   always have different like their little

00:26:51   white foot or two white feet it's it's

00:26:53   very cute that they have the little

00:26:55   subtle markings also I'm half Portuguese

00:26:57   so I like that

00:26:59   yep a little bit and so it says here on

00:27:02   the American Kennel Club the Portuguese

00:27:04   water dog is a a student affectionate

00:27:07   athletic and adventurous so there you go

00:27:11   they're a little they're kind of like a

00:27:12   there are medium-sized dog like a

00:27:15   fortune cookie descriptions like these

00:27:17   sound like just totally like anyway it's

00:27:20   the Kennel Club

00:27:22   but they seem very affectionate loyal

00:27:24   just like the whole thing said and they

00:27:26   when they're walking with their owners

00:27:28   when we see them in the neighborhood

00:27:29   they're just so dignified you know they

00:27:31   feel like they're they're kind of classy

00:27:34   and chill I I like but yet they can turn

00:27:37   and be put and really playful

00:27:38   so Portuguese water dog number three

00:27:41   they seem they seem similar in many ways

00:27:43   in many of the good traits to Standard

00:27:45   Poodles yes but I like that they're a

00:27:47   little bit stockier they're not as long

00:27:49   and lean as a poodle yeah I probably

00:27:51   shouldn't admit this on a podcast but I

00:27:53   totally stocked Bo Obama when the puppy

00:27:59   not the former president because when I

00:28:02   works next to the White House I wanted

00:28:04   to that that's all I wanted to do was

00:28:05   neat the puppy like I'm just a crazy dog

00:28:07   person I just wanted to meet the puppy

00:28:09   do you have the book for your son yet

00:28:12   the first pup actually no I don't who

00:28:15   don't buy it I'll buy a firm we have a

00:28:19   pretty much every dog book known to

00:28:20   mankind so she has like I want to say

00:28:23   fifty percent of all the children's book

00:28:24   we have books we have or somehow dog

00:28:26   related that sausage first word is gonna

00:28:28   be dog or puppy C and you don't have

00:28:30   this one but I read it to Adam because I

00:28:32   want him to think that Barack is still

00:28:34   the president cry okay it's focus dogs

00:28:38   happy dogs but we love our Portuguese

00:28:40   water dogs yes they're adorable

00:28:43   all right Marco all right my number

00:28:45   three so I also you know my standards

00:28:48   for this were kind of similar to yours

00:28:50   and that like I it was dogs that I just

00:28:52   like that like they

00:28:55   their appearance and temperament seemed

00:28:58   just make me happy not at all what I

00:29:00   would want to own for various practical

00:29:02   reasons one of which is that I'm

00:29:03   actually allergic mildly to shedding

00:29:07   dogs not like I could never have a cat

00:29:10   I'm very allergic to cats dogs I like

00:29:13   dogs that shed

00:29:14   I get mild irritation from and so I

00:29:17   really should probably never own a

00:29:18   shedding dog including the the ones that

00:29:22   you know breeders will often tell you

00:29:24   like the anything mixed with a poodle

00:29:26   will not shed because poodles don't shed

00:29:29   and that's not really true yeah and yeah

00:29:32   that's like if you want a non shedding

00:29:34   dog the the only really safe way to

00:29:36   guarantee that is to have both parent

00:29:37   breeds be non-shedding breeds so just

00:29:41   having just one being on shedding breed

00:29:42   doesn't actually work it reduces the

00:29:45   shedding eliminate it and there's no

00:29:47   guarantee how much it would eliminate it

00:29:49   right so all that being said my number

00:29:51   three dog that just makes me so happy

00:29:53   that I just love so much is the Old

00:29:57   English Sheepdog these are another very

00:30:01   vibrant Instagram community if you see

00:30:04   it not they'll usually abbreviate it

00:30:06   oh yes and their usernames cache tag of

00:30:13   course I do and it's a hilarious looking

00:30:15   breed because the way they they groom

00:30:18   and grow their fur out they just had

00:30:20   this like long fluffy straight white and

00:30:22   gray fur usually this big gray markings

00:30:25   like big gray spots somewhere and so

00:30:28   they're you know they'll be like this

00:30:29   big mix and they never have any eyes

00:30:32   like it is so rare to ever see a picture

00:30:35   of it only holding the sheepdog on

00:30:38   Instagram where you can see its eyes the

00:30:40   other dogs think it's weird yeah and

00:30:42   like some of them like like some of the

00:30:43   female ones will have like a little hair

00:30:44   clip like a little like pink clip above

00:30:46   their eyes like Rosie the sheepdog my

00:30:50   favorites who like Rosie you know

00:30:52   everyone knows Rosie

00:30:54   well like I follow all these dogs now

00:30:56   and Instagram

00:30:57   and like it's like it's similar like

00:31:01   people I follow it's like oh look you

00:31:02   know there's there's what you know joel

00:31:05   is doing and oh there's what rosie is

00:31:06   doing and it's just like I just

00:31:09   mix them in because I see what they're

00:31:10   doing all day just like just like the

00:31:11   people I follow I love when dogs have

00:31:13   people names like there's a dog down the

00:31:15   street from us named Dennis and it's

00:31:18   just like there's tennis yep Dennis all

00:31:23   right so we're gonna read about the Old

00:31:24   English Sheepdog AKC adaptable smart

00:31:28   gentle old English sheepdogs are famous

00:31:31   for their sweet agreeable nature I've

00:31:33   never actually met one and so I don't

00:31:35   know if that counts but I don't care

00:31:36   they make me happy and and I like

00:31:38   whenever I see like videos of them and

00:31:39   stuff on Instagram and they just they do

00:31:41   seem like they're just like nice like

00:31:43   laid-back friendly dogs they but they

00:31:45   don't seem like they're like

00:31:46   particularly like problematic or

00:31:48   aggressive or have many downsides

00:31:50   besides the obvious physical downsides

00:31:52   of they are quite large at least by

00:31:55   volume I don't know how much how bucks

00:31:57   dog is inside of all that fluff but

00:31:59   they're they are quite large and I

00:32:01   imagine they have intense grooming needs

00:32:03   just because they have a very long

00:32:06   straight fluffy fur so I bet you need to

00:32:09   get a lot of grooming with an old

00:32:10   english sheepdog and also it seems like

00:32:13   they don't usually have tails

00:32:14   I consider that a downside hey Marco do

00:35:17   row I'm gonna combined mine okay Wow

00:35:21   you can make a mix brief okay so that

00:35:26   moment that you realize you have mom

00:35:27   Bremen brain and you actually have five

00:35:29   dogs on your list because you can't

00:35:30   count right at the moment that's not mom

00:35:32   that's Marco brain that's tops

00:35:35   yes sorry to add to the Marco brain I am

00:35:38   totally gonna mispronounce this next

00:35:40   breed so I'm gonna do my best it's

00:35:42   mostly French so here it goes I

00:35:45   practiced this it is called the coton de

00:35:49   tulear yes the cotton dog yes those are

00:35:52   the best I just think this dog is

00:35:55   utterly fantastic and it's from

00:35:57   Madagascar it's the official dog of

00:35:59   Madagascar

00:36:00   that's awesome I would have this dog in

00:36:04   a heartbeat if it weren't for the

00:36:06   grooming needs yeah yes okay keeping up

00:36:09   with it

00:36:09   slash because I can't count Corgi and my

00:36:13   together that would be amazing wouldn't

00:36:16   it especially if it had the Corgi bite

00:36:19   Oh porky but huge is these days on the

00:36:23   Internet

00:36:23   it is there is nothing better than a

00:36:26   Corgi but when you're talking about dogs

00:36:30   you better ice from the other room Corgi

00:36:33   but better be our show art for this

00:36:35   section if it's not Marco I'll send it

00:36:38   back do you follow

00:36:41   Zack and Henry on Instagram they're two

00:36:43   cotton dogs they're adorable

00:36:45   anyway cotton ah anyway bright

00:36:52   happy-go-lucky endlessly charming born

00:36:54   to love and be loved yeah they're just

00:36:57   they kind of seem like our Cavaliers

00:36:59   with just a longer coat with maybe a

00:37:02   little bit more grooming needs and you

00:37:04   get to do like kind of like Marco sheep

00:37:06   dogs the little bows to keep your hair

00:37:08   out of their eyes a little bit more fun

00:37:10   Mitchell just laughing at me and Corky's

00:37:14   have another word in front of their name

00:37:16   usually right what is it

00:37:18   there's Pembroke or Welsh and I think

00:37:20   there's maybe a third are those

00:37:22   different breeds are they just kind of

00:37:24   different because you know Cavaliers

00:37:27   there's rubies and plenums and tri

00:37:29   colors and Black and Tans they sent him

00:37:31   really tortellini types yeah I believe

00:37:37   they're actually categorized differently

00:37:39   because I think they're shown

00:37:40   differently but I could be wrong Joel

00:37:43   number two oh I found the Corgi I found

00:37:45   the cord yeah it's called the Cardigan

00:37:47   Welsh Corgi

00:37:48   and it's oil affectionate and smart

00:37:51   even-tempered never shy it jumps out of

00:37:54   a helicopter with James Bond to open up

00:37:56   the Olympics oh the Pembroke one looks

00:37:58   way more like the regular Corgi yeah the

00:38:00   Pembroke one I think is the one you see

00:38:02   the Queen though the one thing you know

00:38:04   I usually have like four or five of them

00:38:06   well it's affectionate but not pushy

00:38:08   bold but kindly unfortunately she's not

00:38:11   raising any more oh because she's

00:38:14   getting too old surely somebody will

00:38:16   help right I mean she doesn't want to

00:38:18   burden anybody else all right Joel

00:38:21   number two so my number two is the Pug

00:38:24   which is basically a miniature English

00:38:26   bulldog so we have our neighbor across

00:38:32   the road has a pug Mike Montero and I'm

00:38:36   his wife have plug named Rupert who has

00:38:40   his own Instagram account and I believe

00:38:42   he's featured on mule designs employee

00:38:45   page at least the last time we were

00:38:47   what's that my check to was um in in

00:38:50   pugs sometimes we'll have like a

00:38:54   snaggletooth like an underbite or their

00:38:56   little teeth came up that that over top

00:38:58   of their their upper gums which i think

00:39:00   is cute but they're they're they're

00:39:02   usually very friendly I've never met a

00:39:05   pug that wasn't very friendly although

00:39:07   they can be very vocal like the pug that

00:39:11   lives across the street if he sees or

00:39:13   anyone outside and he happens to be

00:39:15   outside he will bark in this really

00:39:18   adorable little bark that I'm sure he's

00:39:20   trying to make sound very ferocious and

00:39:24   will continue to bark at you as you walk

00:39:25   up to him and and then rub up against

00:39:29   your leg as he's continuing to bark at

00:39:31   you like he can't decide whether he

00:39:34   wants to be an attack dog that's like

00:39:36   you know six inches off the ground or

00:39:38   wants to love you and then you know

00:39:41   you'll you'll bend over and start to pet

00:39:43   him and he'll keep barking at you but

00:39:45   you know he's he's loving that you're

00:39:46   petting him I just think that they're

00:39:48   they're really cute they're they're

00:39:49   adorable I don't believe I would ever

00:39:52   want to own a pug because of the some of

00:39:55   the same health issues that English

00:39:57   bulldogs have two respiratory issues and

00:39:59   stuff like that but I

00:40:02   bugs you're not going for the fluffy

00:40:04   dogs Joel I see that the I'm splitting

00:40:08   it to of minor fluffy and to aren't okay

00:40:10   I'm looking at my list and mine are all

00:40:12   like major grooming dogs yeah because

00:40:18   I'm a former cat person and I love cats

00:40:21   and have cat small my life I tend to go

00:40:23   for smaller cat like dogs

00:40:27   although the pug in English bulldog

00:40:29   aren't really cat-like but as far as a

00:40:30   dogs I would want to own you know

00:40:33   smaller dogs that are not as super

00:40:36   energetic don't have a lot of

00:40:39   maintenance issues you know they're okay

00:40:42   just kind of laying around sleeping and

00:40:45   that sort of thing so the Pug is

00:40:47   described as even-tempered charming

00:40:50   mischievous and loving fun all right

00:40:56   TIFF you're number two my number two is

00:40:59   this shih tzu yay but only when they

00:41:02   have short hair when they have long hair

00:41:03   they look ridiculous

00:41:04   I would argue this as much as I love

00:41:07   shih tzus I would argue that they always

00:41:08   look a little bit ridiculous yes but

00:41:09   they are very cute when they have their

00:41:11   little curly puppy cut these are the

00:41:13   ones that always look absolutely

00:41:15   ridiculous in the Westminster Dog Show

00:41:17   when they have a long time they're

00:41:20   walking with a gown on the one of our

00:41:22   neighbors that used to walk I cannot

00:41:24   remember his name for the life of me but

00:41:26   it used to walk off leash and that we

00:41:27   were always so impressed it was so well

00:41:29   trained well because they're kind of

00:41:31   dumb yeah shih tzus are described as

00:41:33   outgoing affectionate playful and

00:41:36   charming and there is nothing said about

00:41:38   their intelligence say you don't say

00:41:42   anything

00:41:42   no I I mean I I've met only a handful of

00:41:45   here red shih tzus but they've always

00:41:46   been great like you know we have a ship

00:41:49   ooh he is I we would argue probably a

00:41:52   little bit better for certain things but

00:41:53   which we will probably talk about but

00:41:56   purebred issues are also great and I

00:41:59   like them a lot too I like them because

00:42:01   they are slightly dumb so they don't get

00:42:02   into trouble they are I if they get too

00:42:07   inbred they get a little snaggly looking

00:42:10   and it's kind of sad but if you get one

00:42:14   and it's not totally

00:42:15   bread it is super cute and again I like

00:42:18   them with their fluffy hair they were

00:42:20   bred to guard temples I believe in China

00:42:22   oh okay yeah they were that's what they

00:42:27   did they sat around and barked at people

00:42:29   who came near the temples in modern day

00:42:31   they barked at UPS drivers delivering

00:42:32   Amazon boxes they do which is so cute so

00:42:36   they're very playful and I very rarely

00:42:39   met it didn't have met a shih tzu I

00:42:41   didn't like yeah yeah I used to work

00:42:44   with allay theory that was a breeder for

00:42:46   shih tzus pug Dingell French Bulldog

00:42:50   French cheese and some other small

00:42:53   little toy variety and they would have

00:42:55   pure breads or cross breeds and no no

00:42:58   you need to go into this story more

00:42:59   about how your wife had just had brain

00:43:02   surgery and you were redesigning this

00:43:06   person's website and as payment she

00:43:09   offered you a free puppy she offered to

00:43:11   pay me in puppies I said no and your

00:43:15   wife wanted a puppy and you said no and

00:43:21   I told her no it did then I told my then

00:43:23   I told Steph months later that she had

00:43:26   Alford puppies and famous why did you

00:43:28   ever tell her that

00:43:30   you're definitely gonna need to find

00:43:32   someone to pay you in puppies or I will

00:43:43   send everyone their top puppy please no

00:43:45   I really I really enjoy having one dog I

00:43:48   don't have heard about it I've already I

00:43:49   really I'm very happy with our one dog

00:43:51   web style all right my number two is as

00:43:55   previously mentioned the Alaskan

00:43:57   Malamute I follow a lot of Malamutes on

00:44:00   Instagram they're my favorite kind of

00:44:01   doctor follow on Instagram and and it's

00:44:05   this is this is similar like you know

00:44:07   kind of like you know a vicarious dog

00:44:10   selection through podcast and Instagram

00:44:12   because practically speaking they are

00:44:15   massive they shed a truly massive amount

00:44:19   and so it would be very impractical for

00:44:23   us to ever own a maleate however I love

00:44:27   watching other people's Malamutes and

00:44:29   seeing them occasionally in real life

00:44:31   and very occasionally I realized we

00:44:34   don't see a lot of them around here but

00:44:35   very very occasionally on I'll see one

00:44:36   and you know the entire like husky area

00:44:42   of dog breeds is great

00:44:45   Huskies themselves I like them too I

00:44:46   think they're also awesome for me -

00:44:49   ma'am you get the slight edge because it

00:44:52   seems like their personalities tend to

00:44:54   be a little bit more like laid-back and

00:44:56   chilled out and kind of like a little

00:44:59   bit more of like a family dog style of

00:45:02   personality for them according to most

00:45:04   of the info that I've read but yeah

00:45:05   otherwise you know that that whole area

00:45:08   of dogs is great and my favorite among

00:45:10   them is the Malamute Alaskan Malamute

00:45:12   affectionate loyal playful but dignified

00:45:15   yeah it seems like the Husky that's like

00:45:19   kicked back a little bit you know it

00:45:21   because like Huskies can often be a

00:45:22   little bit serious like you know and

00:45:24   Malla need seem like they're their

00:45:26   personality tends to average out a

00:45:27   little bit more like laid-back and

00:45:30   playful okay more my style tell

00:45:31   everybody your favorite one oh it's got

00:45:34   to be Phil there you go life with

00:45:37   Malamutes that's yeah life with families

00:45:38   as their username and it's it's a Phil

00:45:40   and Nico this pair of Malamutes

00:45:42   and phil is my favorite of the two I

00:45:44   think he probably is the favorite of the

00:45:45   two but they're both excellent Marko

00:45:48   Piggly Wiggly watching Phil learn how to

00:45:51   catch a ball

00:45:51   no that was Malamute moosh oh that was

00:45:54   moosh I'm sorry oh my gosh I'm so sorry

00:45:56   use them because moosh has a dog sibling

00:45:59   that is a - and so there's all these

00:46:02   like amazing videos of like this tiny

00:46:05   like incredibly fast running little -

00:46:07   and like running circles under and

00:46:09   around this ten-year-old Malamute who is

00:46:11   the Malamute is able to catch all the

00:46:14   food that's being dropped because well

00:46:16   they're starting out higher

00:46:18   I love the unlikely dog pairs like those

00:46:21   two and then Brady's dog Audrey and me

00:46:25   which is a greyhound and a chihuahua

00:46:28   so together wow they look hilarious I

00:46:32   love when they're sleeping together and

00:46:33   the Chihuahua is smaller than the

00:46:36   greyhounds head I was gonna say that it

00:46:39   has to be I mean does the Chihuahua just

00:46:41   was as the greyhound curls up

00:46:43   a little cut it like see does the

00:46:45   Chihuahua just sit in the center I all

00:46:48   over the place yeah a very good friend

00:46:49   the trio it basically looks like

00:46:51   somebody dropped like a garlic knot on

00:46:53   the Greyhound I have to say the cutest

00:46:56   Chihuahua I've ever seen I have never

00:46:58   very rarely liked a chihuahua very much

00:47:02   that just a look of them but Audrey is

00:47:04   adorable and she's particularly tiny so

00:47:08   but she just has a very good Chihuahua

00:47:10   face so thumbs up Audrey and Lulu we

00:47:12   like you I'm looking at photos of

00:47:14   Malamutes and I've seen Malamutes before

00:47:17   in person but I had never seen any as

00:47:20   large as some of the photos I'm saying I

00:47:22   didn't realize like they're this one

00:47:23   yeah they're I think they're they're

00:47:24   average weight is substantially larger

00:47:26   than the Huskies like their their have

00:47:27   similar I think height range but they're

00:47:30   just a lot thicker they're not as big as

00:47:31   a cute as though I think they might be

00:47:33   close there they're very very big and

00:47:35   this is yet another sign that like you

00:47:37   know I should probably not ever own one

00:47:39   not to mention the shedding requirements

00:47:42   which would be intense but and possibly

00:47:45   be bad for my allergies however I think

00:47:47   they're super cool and they seem like

00:47:48   they seem like a pretty great dog if you

00:47:50   can handle the size and the shedding and

00:47:52   they just need area to run to I mean

00:47:53   they're dogs to exercise if you're if

00:47:56   you're hiking and trekking and doing all

00:47:59   of that this is the perfect dog for you

00:48:01   yeah and like like our lifestyle is

00:48:05   pretty much indoors hanging out most of

00:48:08   the time and we will most days but not

00:48:11   even every day take like a one to two

00:48:14   mile walk and you know in you know town

00:48:17   streets like not going in the woods

00:48:19   they're like you know we might go on

00:48:21   like you know like a little park trail

00:48:22   at best but that's it and so like you

00:48:26   know most of the larger more energetic

00:48:28   you know working breeds would not be a

00:48:30   good fit for us because we would not be

00:48:32   able to exercise them enough and art

00:48:34   with our lifestyle and that's why we

00:48:35   don't get them yet we definitely need a

00:48:36   dog in our life that is basically a rug

00:48:38   yeah exactly

00:48:40   all right now I believe it's time for

00:48:43   everyone's number ones right all right

00:48:46   so you may go first what is your number

00:48:48   one I have a combo yes yes and then you

00:48:52   have two picks or you're picking a mixed

00:48:53   breed actually it's

00:48:55   it's a two picks but six really it's you

00:49:01   you are starting out on this show very

00:49:02   very well you are really showing that

00:49:04   you listen to the show you get the

00:49:07   essence of the show here both are very

00:49:12   very similar they have very similar

00:49:15   characteristic so the main difference is

00:49:17   one is an American English version and

00:49:19   one is a German French version my first

00:49:22   pick is obviously the Cavalier King

00:49:24   Charles Spaniel because they're my

00:49:26   babies and the second is called the

00:49:28   Lochan which is obviously very similar

00:49:31   to the calves

00:49:32   except for you get a groom them like a

00:49:35   lion

00:49:36   oh those yes they have the same

00:49:41   temperament they might be a little bit

00:49:44   more energetic but they have a very

00:49:46   specific haircut that you have to groom

00:49:48   them too evidently they were meant to be

00:49:51   more of a water heater water bottles

00:49:54   back in the Renaissance days they would

00:49:57   sleep next to their owners and so their

00:49:59   heaters it says right here affectionate

00:50:02   outgoing strong-willed and brave as a

00:50:04   lion and there it is would be majestic

00:50:07   lioness so I couldn't leave them out I

00:50:11   mean they're very similar very much just

00:50:13   like our calves but calves are always

00:50:16   gonna be right up there up there for me

00:50:18   apparently low chin literally means a

00:50:21   little lion yes and the Cavalier king's

00:50:23   affectionate graceful and gentle I love

00:50:26   my my calves my Berber and my Lizzie so

00:50:30   they're adorable and they started out

00:50:32   actually not by a choice as people may

00:50:35   have picked up from our conversation I

00:50:37   really wanted new fees to begin with and

00:50:38   the reason we started out with calves is

00:50:40   because Joel after watching every

00:50:44   episode of dogs 101 discovered that

00:50:46   they're the most cat-like dog yeah out

00:50:50   there and so I have fallen in love with

00:50:53   this breed that has curls up with you

00:50:56   every day

00:50:57   we'll go on hikes with us which we have

00:51:00   taken them through shenandoah

00:51:02   - just running around the house they

00:51:05   really adapt to apartment living to

00:51:07   house to being in every situation

00:51:10   possible which really is adaptive to our

00:51:13   lifestyle and they've been great with

00:51:15   our our baby from the day he's been home

00:51:18   he came home to being seven months old

00:51:20   and they love to give him kisses and

00:51:22   they're just very affectionate dogs so

00:51:25   for us I think they've been the perfect

00:51:27   breed and I believe you also have a goal

00:51:29   to have a complete set I do

00:51:32   colors because they come explain the

00:51:34   colors that they come in so they come in

00:51:35   Blenheim which is the stereotypical if

00:51:38   you think of a Cavalier that's what you

00:51:39   think of Ruby which is all over red a

00:51:41   tricolour which is that Blenheim with

00:51:43   black added in and black and tan which

00:51:47   is black and Ruby so we will have all

00:51:49   four eventually at some point in time

00:51:51   maybe it will come when my show dog

00:51:54   comes here in the future because I also

00:51:56   much to my husband's dismay our next dog

00:51:59   will be a show dog that I want to take

00:52:02   into the ring because that's my new

00:52:03   hobby that's awesome though he's not

00:52:08   impressed we'll be going to our first

00:52:10   Cavalier show in March that's going to

00:52:13   be held here in the DC area our dogs

00:52:15   will not be participating because are

00:52:21   not participating because they're spayed

00:52:22   and neutered but we will be attending I

00:52:33   love that movie Best in Show so much

00:52:36   that's a good movie highly recommended

00:52:39   to anyone out there who has not seen it

00:52:40   that's madness if you're listening to

00:52:42   the show this long and you haven't seen

00:52:43   Best in Show or oh shoot it's uh the

00:52:47   other shows oh my I cannot believe I'm

00:52:49   gonna it's called finding mr. Darcy or

00:52:53   something like it's a hallmark movie oh

00:52:54   my god I'm mentioning this it is your

00:52:57   shame is showing it is it is actually

00:53:02   about showing Cavaliers but it's based

00:53:03   off of Pride and Prejudice as well but

00:53:06   it was a hallmark movie last year am I

00:53:08   gonna stop okay everyone look everyone

00:53:15   look away Joel

00:53:16   you're up early so the reason I haven't

00:53:19   said much about this is my number one

00:53:21   pick is also the caffeine I think it was

00:53:25   surprised their number one pick yeah it

00:53:26   might be our dogs Lee right I mean

00:53:29   there's a reason we picked this breed

00:53:31   right to get so in researching when

00:53:34   Stephanie said oh my god we've got to

00:53:35   have a dog I said okay we'll get one but

00:53:39   you have to let me decide the breed

00:53:41   because I didn't want a large dog I

00:53:42   don't like I don't like like our

00:53:45   neighbors for instance have a new fun

00:53:47   the Newfoundland is almost a year old

00:53:50   he's pushing 120 hundred and thirty

00:53:53   pounds and he's not fully grown his dad

00:53:55   at the breeder was 190 pounds yeah I was

00:53:58   talking to our neighbor the other week

00:53:59   who was having to repaint the ceiling in

00:54:01   their foyer why are you doing that it's

00:54:04   like well when he came inside and he

00:54:05   shook his head and the slobber and drool

00:54:07   flew up and hit the ceiling he stands

00:54:13   off the ground like like the top of his

00:54:16   head is three and a half feet tall he's

00:54:18   huge and if he has that much drool to be

00:54:20   shaking it off that high oh yes also yes

00:54:23   interesting attribute yeah I didn't want

00:54:25   a large dog because I don't like drool

00:54:28   don't always tries to ride him I don't

00:54:36   like I don't like that kind of like dogs

00:54:38   smell that larger dogs you know can can

00:54:41   have and I wanted a smaller dog that was

00:54:43   cat-like and I wanted a breed that would

00:54:46   be we had cats I didn't want to

00:54:48   introduce a dog to the house that would

00:54:49   like terrorize the cats I wanted a breed

00:54:52   that would be would get along with other

00:54:53   animals other dogs if for instance we

00:54:56   got another one in the future and kids

00:54:58   that were super friendly and the

00:55:00   Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was

00:55:02   specifically bred by British aristocracy

00:55:05   to be a lap dog to sit in your lap and

00:55:08   not say anything and be quiet all day

00:55:11   and be perfectly happy just to be beside

00:55:13   your side all day that's what they were

00:55:16   bred to be the they grew in popularity

00:55:19   in England from when was this the 18th

00:55:23   century king charles ii had one in his

00:55:26   like official royal porch

00:55:28   and thus all of British nobility wanted

00:55:31   to have one too

00:55:32   and it became kind of like a trend

00:55:35   within British aristocracy to have a

00:55:37   Cavalier King Charles Spaniel like king

00:55:39   charles ii did and they the Blenheim

00:55:43   name came about because the first Duke

00:55:46   of Marlborough had a particular cavalier

00:55:48   king charles that looked like the

00:55:50   Blenheim color scheme and in he fought a

00:55:54   battle the Battle of Blenheim and it was

00:55:56   named after his breed and a lot of the

00:55:58   other breeds are just named after their

00:56:01   color you know ruby or black and tan or

00:56:03   tricolour and the Blenheim got its

00:56:04   unique name from that the the Cavalier

00:56:07   breed they're intelligent you can train

00:56:10   them well they do have some health

00:56:13   issues related to their heart which

00:56:16   usually doesn't come about until later

00:56:17   in life Oh their head issue I was

00:56:20   Stephanie Stephanie yeah I'm putting up

00:56:23   my head for a reason yes my wife had

00:56:25   brain surgery because she has a or had a

00:56:28   do you have a I still have still have a

00:56:30   Chiari malformation and it turns out

00:56:33   this particular breed also can get karey

00:56:35   malformations and didn't you get your

00:56:37   first dog right when Steph had her

00:56:39   surgery a year later we were at the vet

00:56:42   and the vet was trying to explain this

00:56:43   what Kyary was like we know oh we know

00:56:48   but yeah I really like my calves there

00:56:51   for me not being a dog person they've

00:56:54   completely converted me they they

00:56:56   they're the the only drawback because

00:56:59   they don't enjoy it all when you leave

00:57:01   the house they have big separation

00:57:03   anxiety they want to be with you all day

00:57:05   in the house when I go upstairs or

00:57:07   downstairs they follow me everywhere

00:57:08   they sleep in bed with us

00:57:10   they whenever we move to any room in the

00:57:12   house they follow you would lay down in

00:57:14   their favorite spot in that room as long

00:57:15   as they can be in the same room with you

00:57:16   yeah people were joking but when we had

00:57:19   the baby we'd never be alone again and

00:57:20   I'm like we're never alone now I cannot

00:57:25   I thought I had the bathroom door shut

00:57:28   earlier today and then Bert just busts

00:57:30   on through like a child yes and if the

00:57:35   door happens to be shut and I have

00:57:36   locked it properly apostille comes

00:57:39   underneath the door

00:57:40   yes he follows her around everywhere you

00:57:44   you just cannot be alone with with these

00:57:45   dogs but we still love them well we kind

00:57:48   of have the opposite problem with our

00:57:50   dog where he will not go through an

00:57:52   opening that is smaller or the size of

00:57:55   his body he does not want to touch any

00:57:57   side of anything and so he's just the

00:57:59   most timid thing ever and we can block

00:58:01   passageways partially with empty boxes

00:58:04   and he will not go through them it's

00:58:09   pretty actually it's very easy yeah

00:58:12   here's a partially closed door and he's

00:58:14   like I can't handle this this is just an

00:58:16   impasse it's never happening he will sit

00:58:19   beside and cry at us like for us to come

00:58:21   open the door all the way or just look

00:58:23   ridiculously sad yes he's very good at

00:58:26   those eyes yeah the sad eyes anyway my

00:58:29   number one is a shit poo I know well

00:58:33   let's say a proper sHIIP ah it is a

00:58:35   combination shih tzu and poodle I guess

00:58:38   I'm the first one to talk about a mixed

00:58:40   breed we have won it they are kind of

00:58:43   because I really like shih tzus they're

00:58:45   my number two but putting in a little

00:58:48   bit of poodle kind of live in them up a

00:58:50   little bit it gives them a really nice

00:58:52   soft curly coat which I really like

00:58:56   it varies the colors a little bit and it

00:59:00   just makes them a little bit more

00:59:01   playful but still being the affectionate

00:59:04   little timid rug that they are so big

00:59:08   fan right hops where are you over here

00:59:11   he's somewhere being around me and he's

00:59:15   a little fluffy sausage and we love him

00:59:16   and I would a thousand percent get

00:59:19   another chip ooh any day you need a

00:59:23   barley I know that was the whole thing

00:59:25   we were planning on having two hops and

00:59:29   a barley where's the barley Marco I

00:59:32   really like having one dog he really

00:59:34   likes having the one dog lifestyle works

00:59:35   very very well for us but they do

00:59:37   entertain each other and they play well

00:59:40   with each other and just doesn't do

00:59:42   anything he doesn't need to be

00:59:43   entertained I know I know I know just

00:59:48   the squirrels outside and he sits upon

00:59:51   her window seat and he watches outside

00:59:52   all day while we work and then when I

00:59:53   take him out for walks

00:59:54   I know no I actually do agree with Marco

00:59:57   that a one-dog lifestyle is very nice

00:59:59   for us that you know

00:59:59   for us that you know

01:00:00   sits on my lap when we go on road trips

01:00:01   very nice we had to it would be tricky

01:00:04   yeah yeah it's it got a way more

01:00:07   complicated when we got the second one

01:00:08   yeah I think you know we we could have

01:00:11   had a second one maybe if we didn't have

01:00:13   a kid but I mean with the with our kid

01:00:15   and our dog we're very happy but I love

01:00:18   the ship booze so if anyone's out there

01:00:21   looking for an adorable fluffy little

01:00:23   companion dog with very low energy but

01:00:27   will chase the ball if you want them to

01:00:29   I'm always amused by the videos you guys

01:00:32   post of hops especially in the winter

01:00:34   when he has the path through the yard

01:00:36   and does his laps through the path like

01:00:39   it is breakneck pace you know and he's

01:00:42   very fast he looks like one of those

01:00:44   little bunnies that the greyhounds chase

01:00:46   that's what I always think he looks like

01:00:48   seeing him just lay on the ground you

01:00:50   wouldn't expect him to be as fast as he

01:00:51   yeah and he loves playing with big dogs

01:00:54   if they will chase him like in like a

01:00:57   big park or field or something because

01:00:58   he he loved getting them chase them and

01:01:00   then once they're about to catch up he

01:01:02   can turn on a dime and the bigger dog

01:01:05   have longer legs can't and so he he is

01:01:08   this little low to the ground like

01:01:10   Flying Burrito and he just like he just

01:01:12   like just like pivots and turns as soon

01:01:15   as anyone tries as soon as any other

01:01:16   dogs almost catch him and they just go

01:01:19   fine past him and he's gone in the way

01:01:21   again it's it's quite quite fun to watch

01:01:23   and he's very affectionate with with

01:01:25   Adam oh yeah everybody just get along

01:01:27   great and I've never met anyone who

01:01:29   doesn't like hops so my number one breed

01:01:30   is hops yeah my number one breed is also

01:01:34   the shit poo also because of our

01:01:36   wonderful dog there are lots of times in

01:01:39   life when I do a lot of research and I

01:01:43   try to find the best thing and I have to

01:01:44   like you know buy one of every dog first

01:01:46   and then figure out like which one is

01:01:48   the best and this is one of those cases

01:01:49   where we got it right the first time

01:01:51   you know like and and I'm not gonna say

01:01:53   that the ship who is the best breed

01:01:55   period for everybody but certainly I

01:01:57   think the best breed for us because you

01:01:59   know everything you said to if you know

01:02:00   if they they are playful they are nice

01:02:04   they are cute and soft and friendly to

01:02:08   everybody I we've met a handful of other

01:02:12   shifu's and they've all been like

01:02:14   like I think this is one of those cases

01:02:15   where like yeah they're pretty really

01:02:17   thing like the breed personality traits

01:02:20   seem to be pretty firm and stable when

01:02:23   we leave he kind of just goes into

01:02:24   power-save mode and shuts off yeah he

01:02:26   just turns off and light that into a

01:02:27   really sad like a little fluffy log and

01:02:29   you know owning a ship ooh you know cuz

01:02:32   they're about 12 to 16 pounds usually

01:02:36   depending on their parents and and how

01:02:38   much you feed them hops is currently a

01:02:39   little bit on the high end there maybe

01:02:40   it's Seventeen's we fed him a little too

01:02:43   much with the new food when we switched

01:02:44   but it anyway and someone hasn't been

01:02:46   taking him for walks it's funny hops is

01:02:49   wait and my wait rise and fall together

01:02:52   because the way that I control my weight

01:02:54   is by walking with Hobbes is that like

01:02:58   the the breed the dogs end up looking

01:03:00   like their owners yeah that's a versa

01:03:02   yeah Hobson's are both a little bit

01:03:03   round right now good but yeah you know

01:03:10   and and like this it's they're a very

01:03:12   good size of like you know roughly like

01:03:13   15 15 16 pounds you can you can still

01:03:16   hold it in one hand you can pick them up

01:03:18   and move them places when they when you

01:03:20   need to bring them somewhere that you'd

01:03:22   like you just pick them up and put them

01:03:24   somewhere that you need them to be and

01:03:25   there's a lot of advantages to

01:03:28   relatively small compact low-energy dogs

01:03:31   the only disadvantage really is that if

01:03:34   you need him to do any kind of work he's

01:03:37   fairly useless but like he really can't

01:03:40   like carry anything or fetch much of

01:03:44   anything he qicang fetch a ball a couple

01:03:46   times then he gets bored and wants to do

01:03:48   something else or gets tired so he can

01:03:50   have like you know brief periods of

01:03:52   guided activity and then he's done which

01:03:54   is great it for most people like us who

01:03:56   mostly could want like hang out all day

01:03:58   and not do that much we also have

01:04:00   experience of guided activity it's done

01:04:02   exactly exactly yes they're they're just

01:04:07   they're fantastic family dogs for people

01:04:09   who who aren't that active and who don't

01:04:13   want their dog to do a million tricks

01:04:14   they're fantastic they're they're so

01:04:16   good with kids so good with people

01:04:17   everyone loves hops and and I again I

01:04:20   really do think this is mostly or at

01:04:23   least a lot from the breed itself

01:04:25   because as I said the all the other ones

01:04:27   you've met have all

01:04:28   fairly similar temperaments by most

01:04:31   appearances and by what their owners say

01:04:32   also hypoallergenic

01:04:34   yeah exact as not shed yeah doesn't shed

01:04:36   but is also really super soft and fluffy

01:04:39   so very very strong qualities there and

01:04:42   there's there's a whole lot of breeds

01:04:44   that are kind of similar in many regards

01:04:47   I would imagine stuff the the cotton de

01:04:51   tulear whatever however you say that

01:04:52   sorry all France I would imagine they

01:04:55   are probably similar in a lot of these

01:04:56   ways too there's all sorts of like

01:04:58   little like you know things that are

01:05:00   mixed with various other small breeds

01:05:03   that are all kind of soft and fluffy

01:05:04   like there's a ton of breeds that are

01:05:06   kind of like this I don't have a lot of

01:05:08   experience with most of them but the

01:05:11   ship who seems to be a really really

01:05:12   good balance of like not being too hippy

01:05:15   and barky and not being too like you

01:05:18   know angry or aggressive towards anybody

01:05:19   like just kind of be like a nice chill

01:05:21   dog and so I'm very happy with our

01:06:59   recently if for those of you who are

01:07:02   craving some more dog distractions

01:07:04   Netflix has a great show called precious

01:07:07   puppies which we put on last night as

01:07:09   research mmhmm yeah it made us feel

01:07:12   really good and let me tell you it's

01:07:14   full of precious puppies mmm what also I

01:07:17   don't think you can get on Netflix

01:07:19   anymore but it might be on Amazon or

01:07:21   something but I we watched a great

01:07:22   documentary called dogs decoded was that

01:07:24   the one I think so yeah talking about

01:07:26   their their DNA and why they're so like

01:07:29   weather why there can be so many

01:07:30   varieties of one species that have been

01:07:33   bred in such a relatively short time by

01:07:36   like evolutionary standards and also how

01:07:38   kind of dogs communicate and how they

01:07:39   learn it was all very fascinating it was

01:07:41   really great so if you're into that
