I have a boxer/choc. lab mix named Houston. And I have a beagle/daschund named Frank. If you want a cuddly dog, I suggest a daschund! They are soooo cuddly! Always want to be sitting on your lap and near you. My grandma used to have a daschund and she was the cuddliest thing ever, and we have Frank and he is very cuddly as well.
Houston is amazing. I don't know if its just him, or if its the breeds he is, but either way he is my best friend. I have a lot of medical issues, and we really connect. He has some medical issues as well (still undiagnosed unfortunately) so we connect. He guards me when I'm having a bad day, helps me get up (because I have a bad hip and have trouble getting up), he carries stuff for me, and follows me around the house. If I'm crying he sits with me and licks my face until I stop crying :)
If you're looking for a sporty type dog, I think vizlas are pretty cool. My friend has one and she is awesome. She is REALLY fast, and very cuddly. A huge suck.
Here's a picture of Houston. He's turning 4 on July 21st, (I don't have a picture of Frank on this computer unfortunately):
Edit: Littlebittyfish: Your dog is adorable! I love the picture of him licking his nose, its adorable! He's a very cute dog for such an array of mixes!
