“It’s got to be a Berner. The Bernese Mountain Dog is the best breed to have for a family. Affectionate, intelligent and protective. I have had four of these beautiful animals. The last one, Tori, used to sit in front of me and give me that Bernese look. I would say ‘up!’ and he would put his front paws on my shoulders and know that he would get a reward. Unfortunately, they have a short lifespan.” – Drew Armstrong
