Small dogs all the way for me...... Fur balls, we call them.
But large dogs can be beautiful E. G. Golden Retrievers, Blond Labs.
And there is a difference between barking and incessant yapping. A lady friend of ours has Maltese.... When I approach he tries to be really fierce for about 5-10 seconds before licking me to death. But while he's barking and growling at me, he's "pawing" the ground with all four feet, sorta like a bull would do... He throws dirt and pebbles all over the place; it's really hilarious.
