  4. I love dogs. I used to take care of a Cocker Spaniel and Shitzu breeds. Too bad they died already. Can't bear to have another dog. I don't know if I can endure another loss/death.

  9. i love dogs, but with my outdoor hobbies right now, I feel like I would be a bad owner if I always leave them behind since most of the nature trails here don't allow dogs to protect both dogs (captured animals) and wild animals. another very informative post from you donald, and really something one would want to know if they are considering to have pets.

  18. Pugs for me are the cutest! I'd rather get me one of those than to choose one of those bigger options. :P

    ReplyDelete
  19. My kiddos loves to buy a pug or two. Hopefully, we can afford that breed soon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I like pug they are so cute and very huggable. If I will have one dog, it will be surely a pug.

    ReplyDelete
  21. hihihi.I think bagay sakin ang pug or chihuahua. basta yung maliit lang. Pero right now, I'm more inclined to loving cats eh. siguro di ko rin keri ang ingay ng tahol ng snoopdogs :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. Now I know why I like pugs so much. Hahaha. I used to have Pomeranian and I so love cuddling her. Thinking of getting a little pug soon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the pug kamukha ko talaga sila. Sir Donald if you are a dog what type of dog are you:)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, I disagree with the article on two things.

    First, pugs aren't for lazy people. My girlfriend has three pugs and they shed fur a lot. They also need lots of exercise or they will develop breathing problems. One needs to work hard at keeping the house clean from the fur.

    Second, a lazy person shouldn't own a dog.

    ReplyDelete
  25. love the videos, specially the pugs... hahaha... with their face pa lang, solve na araw mo. by their looks, mukhang mas tahimik sila kesa sa chihuahua... hahaha.. Yahweh bless.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm more of a cat person but if I am going to choose among the five dogs listed here, I would choose the pug because of their cute head tilt.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love dogs, but to say, it is too expensive to raise one here in the US. The responsibility is immense like having a kid.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My husband's favorite dog is bulldog but I don't like them hehehe..

    ReplyDelete
  29. they're all cute, though i'm not a dog lover.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm afraid of dogs, my son has an allergy that can be triggered by animal hair, and my husband has been bitten by a stray dog without provocation. To think that could happen to a person who has been caring for three dogs since he was a child so lazy or not, I think I'd pass on pet dogs.

  31. thanks for sharing, great information as always! Papaleng, dapat pala isa sa mga ito ang maging alaga namin if ever one day we will have one, hehehe! i like those chihuahua and pugs. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have a pug and a labrador. They got different personality though. Haha! My pug always want to cuddle and sleep. While my lab is so playful.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have a rat terrier. It's really cute and what I like best about that dog, it doesn't grow big and tall.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Kami din, hindi napabilang sa mga "lazy people".. Hehehe..kase alaga naming mga aso, Black Lab at miniature cocker spaniel and golden retriever mix.. Both are super hyper.. May edad na yung black lab namin, pero 'beast' pa rin pagdating sa energy at harutan.. Yung maliit na aso, cute, pero 'little evil' inside.. Hehehe.. Bruhita ba!! lol

  38. Awwww so cute!! Pugs are so adorable, especially when they snort whilst walking - they sound like little gremlins! Sim x

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm not much of a pet-person so any kind of dog that isn't so needy and doesn't require to be trained so much is something that will most likely be perfect for me. Thank you for sharing this list. It's going to be very helpful ( for me ) in the future when I finally decide to get a pet.

    ReplyDelete
  40. So many cute cute dogs photos.. So nice... I only like to c photo, if really ask me to take care of dogs, it's a no no.. No time for that...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love dogs so much! Getting a Husky is always my dream, but now I'm currently having a shih szu so might have it next time

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love dogs but I'm allergic to them! Meaning, I can't stay in the same place with them for too long, if not I will start getting asthmatic. I think having a pet is a huge responsibility which I hope I can take up in future...

    ReplyDelete
  43. My children have been begging us for a pet dog. I shall choose from this list because I am lazy. Maybe the bulldog is good? But he drools, that's my only problem with bulldogs. But they're so adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I completely agree that owning a dog is a big responsibility. The bigger breeds require a lot care! I know cause i owned 3 at one point!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Dogs are fun to have, but it takes a certain amount of dedication and responsibility to have them in your life. I’m glad there are dogs that demand less of your time.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is too cute! I should share to my friends who wish to own a pet soon. I like chihuahua

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would hope that future dog owners aren't lazy! But this was a pretty informative post into the different dog breeds!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think having easier to maintain dogs is better. It is easier to handle them.

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a great set of adorable dogs. I've never seen a rat terrier before, it looks like an energetic dog that would require extra attention.

    ReplyDelete
  50. That is such a great post you've put together giving so many details. I think lazy people should buy cats instead of dogs :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. I dont really like keeping pets such as dogs. I feel they are somehow dangerous cos I have seen dogs go wild and attack their owners.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love Pugs, they are so cute with their sweet faces, I would love to have one when we leave the flat and move to a house cause I believe one should take care of a dog if he has a garden and a big space where the dog can run and feel free.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have friends who have some of these dogs, lazy pala sila, hehehe. Good thing we have Shih Tzu

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great article! Ah, I have a dog at home and yes they make the best companion ever! Regardless of the breed, no one should be lazy to spend time with their dog!

    ReplyDelete
  55. We're a dog loving family! Have friends who own pugs and bulldogs and yet they are very active. Ours are a lab and golden mix and a jack russell and beagle mix. Parang mga askal lang baga...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Among of all those mentioned above, I would love to have a chihuahua just like Elle Woods in the movie Legally Blonde.
