Most Popular Dogs

17 Jan

Who knew it was a contest…this is the AKC’s publication of the Most Popular Breeds by registrations with a look at a historical comparison.  Interesting and fun information.  These obviously don’t include mix breeds and muts sadly, but how could they track that?  Enjoy!

  1. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
