As for large, I like the Afghan, Saluki, Boxer, to name just a few.
The one thing I can comment on, is that I respect all animals, especially dogs. I love dogs, and what I would have given to have one of them little "yappers" while I lived in my "no animals allowed" apartment as a single mom, for years, busting my butt to afford to live there..
Now that I am married, and better off, in a house, I can have my own critter. I think its something that's too easily taken for granted, caring for an animal. They are after all, just innocent animals, and I haven't an ounce of hate in my heart towards them, not one of them... not even ones I wouldn't want to run into, like a snake, or scorpion.. Nor could I even put the two words in the same sentence together. I'd catch things I'd be terrified of now, like salamanders as a kid.. Guess that's just me, but mom always said I was a true animal lover.
