No hate! My bias is for a standard because I like big dogs, probably just from experience and feeling like I know how to relate to them. I grew up with an afghan hound, and I like a long leggy bouncy creature who can lay or lean on you and you feel the weight of them. I wish they were more transportable but that is the world's fault for not accommodating animals you can't carry. I also ride horses so (at this point in my life/ability/body set up) the strength and energy of a larger dog is not intimidating or too much for me physically. I really like all dogs, though, and could easily be swayed toward a mini or toy if I met the right one, and am often charmed by all the lovely little friends I see on here. I think my bias just comes from what I'm used to, and how I expect to relate to a dog physically and lifestyle wise.
