Its a dog’s world

My bloggy buddy Lax re-surfaced after what seemed like ages on googlechat last night. As usual, she  come up with some gems retreived from the deep recesses of the magical world wide web. This one helps you find out what kind of dog breed you are.

I think by now most people know that I am extremely fond of dogs. I have never ever owned one but have always had neighbours who had a few. I think thats where my love for dogs stemmed from. When you have neighbours with dogs, you get to have all the fun with none of the responsibility! Since no one in my family has ever shown even the slightest inclination towards owning pets, I think I can safely credit my love for four-legged animals to all my neighbours.  I think the only pets we have had so far have been a bunch of colourful fish and a parrot. The parrot was gifted to me by an aunt (if I remember correctly)  to me as a child. We must have kept it with us for a few weeks and then set it free. A free flying bird captured in a cage just didn’t feel right. The fish came into our lives twice- once when I was really small and once sometime in college. The first time around, my poor dad was wholly and solely responsible for the care and upkeep of the fish tank. After sometime, he decided that someone needed to share the responsibility or the fish had to go. So the fish went. The second time around, the fish tank was bought on my insistence. Naturally, I shouldered my share of the responsibility.  I was good at buying new fish to add to the tank but for some unfathomable reason, when I was in charge of looking after the fish, they died with shocking frequency. My dad was travelling extensively at that time so my mom tried her best to help out  with the fish but that wasn’t good enoough. Soon we decided to give back the remaining fish to the aquarium-n-fish shop and give away the tank too. That was the end of my experiments with keeping pets. I must be one of those people who are good at playing and interacting with pets but are awful at caring for them. How tragic. Sigh. Big Sigh.

Anyway, back to the point,I have digressed enough  for one post I think. Like I was saying there is this interesting  website that lets you find out what dog breed you are. According to the ten-point quiz, I am a labrador retreiver! 😀 This is what the detailed result says about me-

You are a Labrador Retriever!
Your family is what makes you tick, and you never “flea” from an opportunity to hang out with the whole gang. A family picnic complete with hot dogs, deviled eggs and a refreshing swim in the lake is hard for you to stray from. Yourdagjpg.gif sparky temperament and dogged intelligence mean you are not only a blast to hang out with, but great to work with as well. Your close pals appreciate your patience and forgiveness, knowing you’d rather let sleeping dogs lie than dwell on the mishaps of the past. Your dashing good looks may one day lead to a modelling career, if only you can tame the unfortunate clumsiness that sometimes causes you to go flailing from the catwalk.

Famous Labrador Retreivers-Bill Cosby, Jackie Onassis, Dr.Phil, David Beckam.  Likely professions: Doctor,sales executive and teacher.

I haven’t highlighted any of my attributes mentioned in the quiz results. It came written that way, I promise!:P

Its a fun, TP kinda quizz.Give it a shot I say!

    Wow, You’re a German Shepherd!

    German Shepherd

    The Perfectionist

    Doggedly dedicated to getting the job done, you don’t let silly little distractions get in the way of putting in a full day’s work. And after you come home, chowing down on a little grub and taking a little catnap is all it takes to get you up and at ’em for round two, whatever that may entail. Your dogma emphasizes the importance of hard work, and you swim laps around your dog-paddling, time-wasting co-workers. Your cleverness leads to you often being entrusted with some pretty important tasks, which you are always more than happy to sink your canines into. You really dig being outdoors and love a bit of exercise, but you draw the line at the ridiculous stuff, choosing a game of beach volleyball over Pilates in the park any day. Learn more »

  8. @nidhi- so cool… lakshmi is a poodle too!

    @snippetsnscribbles- so you are perfectionist ,eh?

    @chakoli- glad you had fun.. 😀 how come u forgot what dog you were??

  9. I almost completed the quiz and the last page never appeared, coz my company decided to block the site at once! *sigh* and i never got to know what breed I am!

  10. @burf- wish i knew… i think they are supposed to be generic qualitites!

    @lively- double sigh.. what is it with all the companies these days????

  11. I tried to do the quiz and after entering my email address,it said it cannot find me in the system!!! Maybe it knows I am no big fan of dogs 🙂 I like them from far…get too scared to go near them.

  12. @chandni- hehehheee… please tell me you dont hate dogs THAT much!!!

    @homecooked- lol.. ur comp and the internet must be telepathic! they know what you think even before you say it. do you like no pets at all?

    @meghana- yay! same pinch!!!

  13. oh boy ! that is sooooooo not true 😦 😦 but on the other hand, is it an undesirable qualification? 😦

  14. It’s nice to be a Labrador Retriever, we have the most lovable one sitting right here, thumping his tail:) I hope I will also turn out to be a Lab!
    You were such an angel to let the parrot fly and the fish go back to the aquarium. You know what, birds and fish are not suited to be kept at home, they thrive in their natural habitat. Dogs and cats are the only animals who like to be with humans. They need our companionship,love and care.

  15. Okay got my results after 1 day 🙂 I am a poodle!!! Its not that I dont like animals at all.If there was someone to look after and take care of a pet,I would definitely want a dog but mostly I stay away from animals as I am damn scared of them.

  16. @snippetsnscribbles-chuck the perfectionist bit. you are fine the way you are!

    @indianhomemaker- you have a lab retreiver at home? how cool is that?! i agree, dogs ad cats suit best as pets. they seem to adapt well to living with humans.

    @homecooked- so you are a poodle too? lakshmi and nidhi are poodles too. i think they are suposed to be a very intelligent breed of dogs.
