This is not good news

The AKC’s ‘top ten most popular breed‘ stats are out.

We’re 26 overall, but in LA:

The most popular breeds for L.A.:

1. Labrador retriever
2. Bulldog
3. German shepherd
4. Golden retriever
5. Yorkshire terrier
6. French bulldog
7. Poodle
8. Pug
9. Pomeranian
10. Maltese

We need to start telling people that this is a horrid, lousy breed that NO ONE should ever own, before we make it into the top ten.

Personally, the next time someone from LA calls me about a puppy, I’m going to tell them that they shed constantly, fart incessantly, pee on everything and do crack in back alleys for fun.

I tell them most of that already, but maybe the crack part will seal the deal.

On second though, considering it’s LA, maybe I’ll casually throw this in – “Hey, did you know that every celebrity who has ever bought a Frenchie has had their very next movie bomb? I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, though”.

Update: Crap. I just noticed we’re number four in New York City. Maybe we can casually suggest a link between owning a French Bulldog, and having you real estate value drop (or your rent controlled apartment go co op).
