People love their Labs!

NEW YORK (AP) - The American Kennel Club says the Labrador Retriever is the nation's most popular dog for the 22nd straight year.

According to the AKC top 10 list released Wednesday, the German Shepherd still commands the No. 2 spot.

The Golden Retriever has nosed out the Beagle for the No. 3 rung.

AKC spokeswoman Lisa Peterson says larger breeds dominate the "pint-sized, portable pooch." But there are still some loveable lightweights on the list.

The Beagle is now fourth.

The rest of the pack: Bulldog, Yorkshire Terrier, Boxer, Poodle, Rottweiler and Dachshund.
