What's your "ideal" dog size

Of course weight isn't always telling of size, but in general, what size range do you prefer?

I like medium-ish sized dogs. My dogs are both a bit over 2ft tall & the smaller is 57 & the larger is 67lbs. They are a good size for me =]

What about you ?!

I'm a fan of big dogs. I love danes, GSD, rotties, dobermans, and labs.
Unfortunately, I don't have the space for a big dog, so until I get out of school (212 years from now) Im going to have to get myself a little dog.
I'd love a Scottie, but I hear they need more attention than I may always be able to get them. According to online tests, I should get an Italian Greyhound :)

I love all the big dogs. Danes, wolf hounds, dobermans... But right now I have a Cocker Spaniel. She is as small as I'll go.

I love big dogs - but for practicality I go for medium dogs. I love all working breeds - Kelpies, Collies, Coolies etc. and most fall within medium. But I would also love a great dane or ridgeback...

Havign said that I have a maltese/****zu/pomeranian mix pup at home and he is the perfect size for a house dog - Just small enoug to pick up and sit on your lap but not look like a rat :p

I love big dogs. I have a lab right now about 70 pounds, but before he fell into my lap I was looking at Danes.
