Absolutely! I DO already have my dream dog, which is Iorveth, my Standard Xoloitzcuintli, but I have many other breeds I would love to own one day.
Great Dane (I'd hoped for a Panda baby but I think it will be a while before we are able to add another dog to the pack)
Portuguese Podengo Grande Smooth
Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Catahoula Leopard Dog
German Wire-haired Pointer
Dogue de Bordeaux
Agouti Siberian Husky
Blue merle Smooth Collie
Some are higher on the list than others like the Wolfhound, Deerhound, Dane, Podengo, and Borzoi but I'd love to have the opportunity to own these breeds at some point in my life. Will I have time to own them all? Who knows. We have three dogs now and, while I'd love to add another dog or two, our house is too small to cram that many of us into it! We won't be in this house forever, though and, once we have property, there will be more room for all so maybe our pack size will increase. I'd rather have time to own fewer of my desired breeds and get more years with my dogs than be able to own them all because something cut the lives of some of my dogs short, you know?
I absolutely want another Standard Xolo and I've told Nick that we might end up like Jon and Natalie... A whole house full of a breed that is like potato chips to us with the oddball thrown in here and there like Shiloh and Emmy. I would never have imagined that I would fall this deeply in love with Xolos and I can easily see myself forgoing many of the breeds mentioned above if given the choice between one of them or another Xolo.
Someone did mention the smaller sized Xolos and hiking... Xolos have an incredible amount of energy and generally move so efficiently that they can float over the ground like it's nothing. Iorveth can go and go and go and, while some of the miniatures may be too small to keep up on a trail, Intermediates are a very popular size among Xolo people because they can keep up with most of the big dogs (if not outdo them) yet still have the convenient size of a smaller dog. I know more Intermediate Xolos in agility than both of the other two sizes combined. People adore the size of the Intermediates. I wish I could explain that better. And hey, if hairless isn't for you and you like hiking in colder weather, then there are lots of coated Xolos who need love too! All the Xolo with a nice fur coat!

I saw the pictures of Quinn next to the bottle! She's gorgeous. I really am hoping that, by then, we'll be ready for another dog. Dude is showing his age but, even if we're down to two dogs in this house before we move, I think we're going to wait. 2017 is when Nick's Navy contract ends and, after that, we're going to start looking for property so I'm going to keep my fingers crossed. We live in a beautiful place that has been an incredible experience with the whales and the crabbing/fishing but I am just so ready for property and livestock.
