We are the only ones who can heal ourselves, sometimes with assistance,
sometimes not. Trust yourself. Listen to your own voice.
Agnes Whistling Elk as quoted in Jaguar Woman by Lynn V. Andrews

today's fun...ever wonder what type of dog you would be if you were a dog? well now you can find out!

"There's a dog inside all of us, waiting to be let out. This game is based on a computer called SUKA, built in 1975 by Russian scientist Mikhail Volkonsky and now housed in a London museum.

SUKA is powered by CATS (Canine Algorithmic Transfer System™) which is able to determine what kind of dog you are. Simply answer 10 questions, being as honest and accurate as possible and CATS will calculate which breed you resemble the most." play now

I played and it seems that I would be an Irish Red and White Setter. I was hoping for a Saint Bernard but at least I was not a poodle.

Very interesting...I'm a Border Collie...a very popular dog out here in sheep country. Does that mean I've come home?

hope to hear what others are.

gary - setters are definitely among the friendliest of dogs in my experience! now,now gary I've heard poodles are very intelligent dogs. the first time e took the quiz she ended up being a shar-pei and was mortified! then we read what their characteristics were and they are very neat animals - with classy traits. some dogs just can't help being 'dogs' in the eyes of others, eh?

gig - the first time I took the quiz I too was a border collie & that seems to be a breed I often turn out as - which makes me very happy. I do think you found your home out there in eugene! and your affinity for knitting - another perfect fit, eh?

the last time I took the quiz, it said I was a norwegian elkhound. I'm sure the key to the quiz is how one is feeling at the time in terms of choose the five traits to describe oneself. I have known about this quiz/game for years and have been a few types but they've always been working or herding breeds... which does hit this nail on the head!

I hope other mouse readers post what kind of dog they

This was a hoot! I am a tibetan terrier. Can't remember all the other stuff about it, was afraid I was going to be a black lab...Thanks for including this. Made me day!

I am delighted to report that I am a Dachshund!!! I think they're so adorable. I'm pleased to be in their number! Thanks for posting this quiz - great fun for dog lovers!

I was a Dalmatian.....I was surprised but not disappointed. They have great endurance it said. I like to think of myself that way.

apparently i'm a Hungarian Puli..... not sure what i think about that, but i do wish i had that much hair!

I'm a keeshond or hund. Apparently I am friendly and extremely loyal. I guess it does have something to do with those five traits and our height and build. As soon as I put that in I knew I wasn't going to come up as a German Shepherd. The film seems quite something too... might check it out.
