Can You Name All 104???

And then there are posts that are less on the educational side, and have more to do with brain teasing.

Some of you who are reading this are waiting around at a dog show, while some of you are getting your tires rotated, killing time before an event, or suffering in bed with a cold. Since you have nothing else to do, and scientists tell us that we keep our minds active and young by making our brains work, this is for you.

One hundred and two (103) AKC breeds (and that includes the FSS and Miscellaneous Class breeds) have double letters in their names. That is to say that these breed names have letters that appear twice and next to each other. Example, the cereal name, “Cheerios.” Bonus points if you can name the three breeds that have three sets of double letters.

And before you ask: Some breeds have the type of dog they are as part of their name. Example: The Afghan Hound is a hound, and hound is part of its name. Those breeds count as part of the 103 breeds.

So, can you name all 104 breeds without looking them up? It’s no fun if you cheat. Tell us how you did! Did you get 90 out of 104? 20/104? We pretty much guarantee that some of you will look at the answers when it’s time and say, “Oh yeah, how could I forget that one?”

One more thing: This is supposed to be fun, but we aren’t infallible. If you spot an error, mea culpa

The answers are below the sunflower art work,  and not necessarily in alphabetical order. As for the images we’re using in this post, they don’t have a thing to do with anything other than to be decorate (and eat up space):
