Happy holidays! For those of you not spending the week lying on a beach or zipping down the slopes, we feel your pain. As a little treat, we dug through the archives and came up with the Best of DailyCandy. Enjoy.
Sometimes we all wonder…has the world gone to the dogs?
Unconditional love? Total devotion? Are you going to knock that? But keep in mind: Picking a companion is not as easy as swinging by the pet store (just think about how many blind dates are duds). The canine personality is almost as complex as a human one. Almost.
Herewith, a guide to the world of canine companions for the person who is a…
Personality Type No. 1: Style Vixen.
French Bulldog (also known as the “Frenchie”) Pug. Super-expensive. Super-stylish. All over Paris and downtown New York. Tres faconnable.
Personality Type No. 2: Jock.
Labrador Retriever. Sporty. Sincere. Sweet and easy to look at. If only men were so easy to find.
Personality Type No. 3: Party Animal.
Bulldog. Can sleep through any raucous 4 a.m. after-party. Will stay alone for eight hours while you hit TanDa. Doesn’t need much exercise. Drawback: slight snoring problem, but nothing a couple of mojitos won’t help you sleep through.
Personality Type No. 4: Priss/Princess.
Poodle, or Maltese (you know, the white fluffy wannabe dog you see prancing down Madison Avenue?). Can use litter box, and will wear sleep mask. No explanation necessary.
Personality Type No. 5: Couch Potato.
Newfoundland. This drooling mass of love and goodness doesn’t need much exercise. Would rather sit and eat all day.
Personality Type No. 6: Go Getter.
Doberman Pinscher. Smooth. Sleek. Agile. Looks good with Art Deco furniture.
