New American Kennel Club report reveals America’s most popular pooches
While there are certainly some people out there who don't love dogs, let’s face it, the majority of Americans are dog lovers, and there’s no doubt everyone has their favorite breed of pooch. But it seems there’s just one dog breed out there that most Americans simply love the best.
For the 27th year in a row, the Labrador Retriever tops the American Kennel Club’s list of America’s most popular dog. It isn’t much of a surprise the Lab earns the top spot, since it’s considered a family friendly pooch, with an eager-to-please temperament.
One breed that seems to be gaining in popularity is the French Bulldog, which rises two spots to number four this year, and kicks the Beagle out of the Top Five for the first time since 1998.
Most Popular Dogs in the U.S.
- Labrador Retriever
- German Shepherd
- Golden Retriever
- French Bulldog

Canadian teen wins $1,000 a week for life with the ticket she buys on her 18th birthday.
When you turn 18 and become a legal adult, one of the things you can finally do is buy a lottery ticket. So on Charlie Lagarde’s 18th birthday on March 14, the teen from Quebec bought her first lottery ticket. And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, it was a winning ticket for the $1-million jackpot.
The wise young woman consulted with a financial advisor before deciding to take $1,000 a week for the rest of her life instead of the $780,000 lump sum after taxes. She is only 18, so that’s a lot of weeks to collect that $1,000. Now she plans to use the money to pay for her education and to travel before pursuing her dream of working for National Geographic.

Celebs like Demi Lovato and Hillary Duff have used the apps, too!
Celebrities use dating apps. Let me repeat that just in case you didn’t catch it. CELEBS USE DATING APPS. Seriously! It sounds ridiculous that someone in such high demand would need an app to help them find love. But plenty of stars have admitted to pulling out their phone and swiping from time to time – even meeting people on them!
Here are some of the stars that have owned up to using the apps:
- Drew Barrymore (she recently admitted that her ex caught her on the apps)
- Zach Braff
- Laverne Cox (who recently confirmed that she’s got a boo!)
- Hilary Duff (she’s back together with an ex – she dumped Tinder in 2015)
- Demi Lovato (word is, she’s on Raya)
- Lindsay Lohan
- Amy Schumer (she just got married)
- Eric Stonestreet (at last check, he’s head over heels for pediatric nurse Lindsay Schweitzer)
And those are just the ones who have admitted to it! Think of all of the celebs out there that could be swiping without us knowing. More importantly, think of all of the celebs you could stumble on while swiping yourself. Could be worth the searching! Get on those apps! You could match with a celeb.
