America has a new favorite dog.  The American Kennel Club recently released a full list of the most popular dogs in the U.S.  This year it was quite the upset.  For the last 30-plus years, the Labrador Retriever has been second to none when it came to the most favorite dog breed.  How can it be that easy to pick a favorite when it comes to dogs?  I love all dogs.  My wife recently asked me what kind of dog we would get next.  I responded with, “whichever dog finds us.”  That’s why we adopted our dog, Zoe.  She absolutely found us and will forever and always be the top dog in our hearts.  Scroll below and find who took the top spot away from the Lab, as well as all of the adorable pups that deserved to win as well.
