The American Kennel Club released its annual list of the top dog breeds in the US this week, and for a record 24th year in a row, the Labrador Retriever is at the top of the list. But the Lab shouldn't get too comfortable, because the Bulldog is closing fast, achieving its highest ranking ever at #4. And its smaller, big-eared cousin, the French Bulldog, cracking the top 10 for the first time at #9 and knocking the dachshund out of the top 10 for the first time since 1985. Just 10 years ago Frenchies were only ranked 49th. Here's the list of all the breeds in the top 10 for Continue Reading
