Or the setters?

I've had labbies, though, and they're great dogs...goldens, too...

On the one hand, I can never believe that setters don't rank higher, but on the other, I'm glad they never make the "top 5" list. IMO, there's nothing worse for a breed than to have it become "fashionable" or "popular" to own. It encourages puppy millers to exploit the breeds listed.
