We try harder

Alpha tells me there is a saying among rental cars. Hertz is number one, but at Avis, "We Try Harder".

Well, did you read the NY Times yesterday (hey, just because I'm a dog, doesn't mean you can't read ;-)

Labradors Still No. 1, but Yorkies, Move Into Second Place

The American Kennel Club yesterday announced a shift in its 10 most popular dog breeds in the nation and in the city, or at least in that elite group of purebred dogs whose pedigrees and papers are in order.

Across the country, the most popular dog last year, as it has been for 16 years in a row, was the Labrador retriever, with about 124,000 registrations, or 14 percent of the club’s total.

But the big news, the club said, was the No. 2 ranking in both the city and the country: the Yorkshire terrier, overtaking larger breeds like the golden retriever and the German shepherd.
That's right, we Yorkies are now the 2nd most popular dog breed in America. Still behind those goofy labs, but ahead of Golden Retrievers, and everything else.

Which means, of course, that "we try harder". So tell me, how did I do for this photo?

If there were more yorkies like Frito they would definitely have taken first place! Labrados can't even compete with you Frito! Very cute picture by the way...
