Benji said:Growing up we raised and sold bulldogs (they were mostly brindle). Mine was "Dusty". Interestingly my sister would later raise and sell chihuahuas - just little kiper snacks for the bulldogs I'm thinking.
Making a choice of favorite is tough because I've had read healer, beagle, lab, mutt, pomeranian, chihuahua (a gift from my sister), more mutts and schnauzer.
I loved them all - except for the chihuahua.
I actually named this long haired chihuahua T.J. (The Jerk) - she sould go outside and find bugs - eat them and then deposit the remains in the house. She would never listen and only did what she wanted - man, she was just like a cat.
