Default Dog days!

Someone at another site posted this link, and I couldn’t resist.

What kind of dog are you
? (Click that item over on the right.)

Hmmm, it seems I'm a French Bulldog.

What are you?

A Welsh Corgi (like one of the Queen’s dogs!).

In a pig’s eye, that’s all I can say! I wanted to be a Malamute or Samoyed, or at least some sort of real dog.

Maybe if you gave an appropriate height and build at the start you'd get one of those.

I did some playing with it and got all small dogs, no matter what I said in the personal characteristics.

I wondered about that ... I suspect you're right. There probably was no way I'd have come out as a large dog, no matter what the personality and temperament.

Goodness! I thought your height would get you a greyhound or something.

Cool, I'm a Sheltie! (Shetland Sheepdog) Not what I expected I'd be at all.
