Post What breed of dog would Louis XVI like?
What breed of dog would he like (if he did like dogs) ? Why do think Louis would like your chosen breed of dog? i.e.

He would like a Saint Bernard because they drool a lot. (Ok, not the greatest example, but I hope you all get the picture!)

More importantly.... ENJOY! :bunny:

Perhaps a very regal dog, for example, the wolfhound? I've always thought wolfhounds were very handsome creatures! :wink:

I would think a Basenji. They don't bark but they do make noises. And they're a hunting dog. Well, I like their tails they're curly!

I think Louis would also like a wolf hound.

I think he would like a terrier for some reason. But... I think since he was so relaxed I think he would like a hound. Like a Tree Walker Coonhound. Wow I feel like a red neck for suggesting it. Here's a description.

"The Treeing Coonhound is good with children and gets along with other dogs. Training is accomplished with little trouble, as these dogs are able to learn from example. They are primarily working and hunting dogs but will also make a great companion dog. Working, to the Treeing Walker Coonhound, is not work but a sport and diversion. They thrive on consistent and ample attention. High-strung but loving and eager to please, the Treeing Walker is intelligent, skilled and confident. Some say they are the best breed for coonhound field trials because of their speed, ability to locate quickly and good treeing ability. They are swift with a very good sense of smell and a distinctive howl. Socialize at a young age. "

Another choice for me would be the whippet. They are versatile. And I think Marie Antoinette would like Whippets as well.

"The Whippet is intelligent, lively, affectionate, sweet, and docile. This very devoted companion is quiet and calm in the home. This breed should never be roughly trained, for they are extremely sensitive both physically and mentally. Be sure to introduce plenty of variety when training this breed. The best results will be achieved by including games and running but remember, although they are very intelligent and will learn quickly, you will never achieve "perfect" obedience from this breed due to their independent nature. They are good with children of all ages as long as the children do not roughhouse or tease the dog. Whippets are clean, virtually odor free, easy to care for and easy to travel with. They are good watchdogs and may be reserved with strangers. They will pursue and kill cats and other small animals if given the opportunity, but are good with other dogs. Household cats that they are raised with and have become accustom to will be left along. They can be used to hunt. The Whippet's sweet personality makes him a fine companion dog. The Whippet is the ultimate sprinter, unsurpassed by any other breed in its ability to accelerate to top speed and to twist and turn with matchless dexterity. Some can be difficult to housebreak while others housebreak quickly."

I think a beagle would be a good choice as well since they are small but they are indeed hunting dogs.

I think they probably preferred spaniels. Spaniels often appear in paintings of the period. The breed is a little different today with a shorter nose, but it's similar.

Yes I could see that since they are gentle and excellent with children.

I think Louis would also like a golden retriever, they are obedient and good with children. I also had a golden retriever once. I think he would avoid boxers because they are so energetic! Exhibit A a video I found of a boxer on a trampoline. http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload ... -your.html
