I recently took one of those click bait quizzes I found online to see what kind of dog I’d be.
As usual, it said I was definitely a Labrador retriever—affable, smart, outdoorsy, a little clumsy, and likes to eat.
Yep, that sounds about right.
But it isn’t the whole truth. I suspect I have a few other dog breeds lurking inside as well.
If I Were A Dog, I’d Be A…
Border Collie – Because I usually find work more fun than play. Heck, when it’s going well, work is play.
Pitbull Mix – Because I’m not as tough as many people think I am.
Golden Retriever – Because I just like hanging around people.
Terrier – Because once something comes to my mind, I have trouble tearing myself away from it.
German Shepherd – Because I work very hard to do what people important to me think I should do.
Saint Bernard – Because, I’m sorry to say, I sometimes drool.
Greyhound – Because there’s nothing better than a night in on a comfy couch with the ones I love.
Great Pyrenees – Because I leave long strands of white hair everywhere I go.
Chesapeake Bay Retriever – Because I’m never happier than when I’m in or near the water.
Universal Dog (some call them mutts) – Because it’s hard to predict what I’ll do next.
Pug – Because I like making people laugh. Although I don’t lick them nearly as much.
Chihuahua – Because if I’m going to survive winter, I need a really warm coat.
In truth, I wish I were as good a person as my dog Honey is a dog. Maybe I need to keep hanging out with dogs until I learn all their secrets.
Your Turn: If you were a dog, what kind of dog(s) would you be?
