While there are certainly some people out there who don't love dogs, let’s face it, the majority of Americans are dog lovers, and there’s no doubt everyone has their favorite breed of pooch. But it seems there’s just one dog breed out there that most Americans simply love the best.
For the 29thyear in a row, the Labrador Retriever tops the American Kennel Club’s list of America’s most popular dog. It isn’t much of a surprise the Lab earns the top spot, since it’s considered a family friendly pooch, with an eager-to-please temperament.
While the Top Five remains the same again this year, there’s at least one new entry into the Top Ten, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which lands at 10, the first time it’s ever made it to the Top Ten.

P.S. I demand a recount! I don't see Catahoula Leopard Dog in this list! That is what my babies Banjo and Kona are (partially). They don't have papers or anything because they were rescued. Plus they are mixed with a red dog of some sort. (Scandal!)
But they are mine and they are beautiful. Scroll down for a pic of a "real" Catahoula and then some pics of mine.
