Pembroke Corgi

Originating in Pembrokeshire Wales.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is one of two breeds known as the Welsh Corgis.
As far back as the 10th century, corgis were originally bred for herding sheep, bulls, horses and cattle and are the oldest herding breed. The Pembroke when bred correctly have proven themselves to be excellent companions. They are good watchdogs because of their alertness and their tendency to bark. Pembroke's are typically outgoing, friendly dogs that can be good with children as well.
Pembroke's vary in the colors of red, sable, fawn, or even tricolor. Which tricolor is considered black and tan with white makings by the AFC(American Kennel Club).
Low down to the ground they range anywhere from 10 to 12 inches(25 to 30 cm). 12 to 15 inches in length(30 to 38 cm). Weighing about 27 pounds(12 kg) in their peak condition. Females weighing about 5 pounds less than the males normally.
Their undercoat sheds continuously all year round, with extensive seasonal shedding occurring at least twice each year. There can also be extensive shedding of coat in females after the weaning of pups, after a heat, or when a female is spayed.
Popular belief is the volume of shedding fur can be significantly reduced by feeding it quality food and make sure to brush the dog regularly.
Due to the length of it's spine the Pembrokes tend to have arthritis early on in it's life, it especially happens to the ones that are overweight.
Usually are very easy to train. Be careful though, they tend to become overweight easily if not taken care of properly. Feeding and exercising correctly will keep this particular dog in tip top shape.
Ranked #11 In The Intelligence of Dogs and considered to be very good work dogs.
Favored by British royalty for more than seventy years.
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are famed for being the preferred breed of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The II.
Typically the Pembroke lives anywhere from 12 to 14 years and possibly longer.
Corgis are at risk of developing a disease called degenerative myelopathy or DM. Research regarding DM is underway, and a test for DM has been developed and is available through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. Don't worry though it is not contagious but it may be passed down to the next generation genetically. There is a free test for dogs over age 10 on the OFA site.
Like most dogs it has the possibility of getting hip dysplasia. It could also have eye disorders,clotting disorder.

Golden Retriever

These lovable dogs are great for a house pet. Historically developed they were bred to have a soft mouth to retrieve game undamaged and have an instinctive love for water. They are very intelligent and versatile making it easy for them to do a number of things.
They can detect illegal drugs,search and rescue,they can be used for hunting,guide dogs and are the most popular as far as being a great family dog(by registration)in the world. Their eager demeanor and friendly attitude makes them pleasant to have around in almost any situation. Although with their kindness,trusting and gentle disposition they are not very good at being guard dogs.
The typical Golden Retriever is calm, naturally intelligent and biddable, with an exceptional eagerness to please.
Golden Retrievers have been known for their intelligence ranking #4 by Stanely Coren's The Intelligence of dogs. They are one of the brightest dogs ranked by obedience command and trainability. These dogs are also renowned for their patience with children.
Adult Golden Retrievers love to work, and have a keen ability to focus on a given task. They will seemingly work until collapse, so you should take care and avoid overworking them.
When these dogs reach maturity they will be active and fun-loving animals with exceptional patience and can be trusted if trained correctly to sit quietly for hours in a hunting blind.

The original cross was in Scotland at at "Guisachan" of a yellow-colored Retriever and a Tweed Water Spaniel but unfortunately the Tweed Water Spaniel's are now extinct.
Golden Retrievers were first accepted for registration by the Golden Kennel Club of England in 1903.
Then in 1913, the Golden Retriever Club was founded.
In 1920 the name "Golden Retriever" was finally made official.
They are also known to become excellent surrogate mothers to different species. Kittens and even tiger cubs from zoos are well taken care of by golden retrievers. In some cases, a retriever may produce milk for its adopted even though it may not have been pregnant or nursing recently.
They do very well in small living areas of at least 500 sq. feet.While the breed is recognized for its vitality, many retrievers are susceptible to specific ailments. A responsible breeder will proactively minimize the risk of illness by having the health of dogs in breeding pairs professionally assessed and selected on the basis of complementary traits.
Hip Dysplasia is very common with the Golden Retriever.
The first three dogs ever to achieve the AKC Obedience Champion title were Golden Retrievers.
All in all I would definitely recommend buying a Golden Retriever for you and your family.

Invisible Dog Walk In Brooklyn

Over 2,000 people walked invisible dogs down the streets of Brooklyn on a Sunday afternoon. The leashes were on loan from the current owner of 51 Bergen Street, the factory where the "invisible dog" toy was invented in the 1970s. Participants of all ages spread out anywhere from Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights, walking their invisible dogs. Hilarious!
