Today March 23 is National Puppy Day!

We went to the official AKC website to check on the Top 15 dog breeds for 2022 and here is the list. There’s not a lot of surprises or new comers on the list, most are breeds that have been popular for a long time.

My family and I have a Miniature Schnauzer and a 4 month old Welsh Corgi, they are both great breeds of dog but only one made the top 15 this year, (I won’t tell Sophie she didn’t make it)

Here’s the Top 15 AKC Dog Breeds of 2022!
