In honor of the event, I took an online quiz to determine which breed of dog I'm most like. The test was fun, though I'm not so thrilled with my result: a poodle. Boooo. I would rather be an Akita or St. Bernard or Sheltie. Or a Pug! Anyway, here's their complete analysis (apparently I'm cold and intimidating):
Virginia, you're a Poodle!
No bones about it, you're a go-ahead-and-spoil-me Poodle. Intelligent and discerning, why should you settle for anything but the best? No good reason comes to mind. You appreciate the finer things in life, from the trendiest clothes to the best restaurants. Maintaining your health and appearance is a must — you owe it to yourself to look and feel tip-top. The result? An impeccable fashion sense, perfect grooming, and the latest must-have "toys" and accessories. Unfortunately, that can be a little intimidating to people who don't know you. They might think you're a bit cold or distant. But your close friends know better. Your nearest and dearest can see beyond the glitz and glamour to the smart, considerate person within. Woof!
