I usually ignore these “most-popular” dog breeds lists, until I found that one of the oddest-looking dogs I’ve ever seen … one that I thought only existed in posters … is popular in Dallas. It’s something called a “cavalier King Charles spaniel” (shown left).Â Â A press release from the American Kennel ClubÂ today says that this spaniel tied with dachsunds and miniature schnauzers to be the seventh most-popular dog in Dallas. Boxers, thankfully, nose out theÂ spaniel.Â The most popular breed in Dallas? The Labrador retriever. The most popular unregistered dog (my guess, at least)?Â I’d say it would make short work of King Charles, with or without lipstick.
