The Labrador retriever continues its reign as America's top dog.
According to the American Kennel Club, the Lab took the top spot for the 21st consecutive year, which is based on registration statistics.
The beagle moved up to the No. 3 spot.
An AKC spokesperson said she wouldn't be surprised to see the beagle move to the top of the list next year.
The German shepherd maintains its No. 2 ranking. The golden retriever climbed from No. 5 to No. 4, and the rottweiler made its first appearance in the Top 10.
The Yorkshire terrier slid from No. 3 to No. 5 on the new list, and the dachshund dropped from No 8 to No. 9. The poodle breed rose from No. 9 to No. 8 in the AKC records this year. Other Top 10 finishers include the bulldog (No. 6) and the boxer (No. 7).
One thing the AKC is noticing is that small dogs aren't as popular anymore. It looks like big cuddly dogs are making a comeback.
Sources told TMZ that Chris Brown and Rihanna are dangerously close to getting back together but their friends are desperately trying to keep them apart for their own good.
According to the sources, Rihanna is still head over heels for Chris, even though they went through some major drama three years ago. Her friends say that it weren't for the media and her fans, she would already have taken him back.
Also, Chris has extremely strong feelings for Rihanna. So friends on both sides have told them they are against the hookup. They think spending so much time together is a terrible idea, personally and professionally.
Don't expect "American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez to duet with Steven Tyler anytime soon.
He said: "None of us are kind of followers in that way. We kind of do what feels right, and anybody that's been in the business a long time knows that you don't chase. You set the trail. You go out front, and anything that we do is something that feels good to us," she said, leaving the door open just a crack."
"If that happened, it would happen. If a performance happened, it would happen. But it would have to feel real. Last year, we talked about performing together on the show for the finale, and we just couldn't agree on the same thing that felt good for all of us, so we just didn't do it."

"American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe spoke with reporters and was asked how he felt about the ratings success of "The Voice"'s second season and whether or not it's contributing to "American Idol"'s ratings decline.
Lythgoe said: "My thoughts on "The Voice" at the moment are I think it's a fun format. It's very gimmicky, which is interesting at this moment and time. I particularly like the relationship between Blake [Shelton] and Adam [Levine]. Other than that, I think they need stronger talent. We'll see."
"Idol"'s numbers are down from last season, but Lythgoe isn't worried. He said: "After 11 years, I am thrilled with these ratings. We're constantly compared against ourselves and against our own ratings.
"Of course, there's going to be some kind of deterioration in the ratings. We've now got two major programs in "The Voice" and "The X Factor" against us. Whether people like them or dislike them, they're still feeding from the same talent and it's still going to dilute our audience."
Lythgoe was also asked about Ryan Seacrest's future as the host of "American Idol" and whether the show could survive without him. Nigel replied: "There can always be an Idol without anybody. I'm surprised that question's still being asked after Simon [Cowell] left us when everybody said there wouldn't be an Idol without Simon."
Though the show can go on without him, it doesn't mean Lythgoe wants it to. He says, "Seacrest is probably the best host in the business. Why he hasn't received an Emmy yet, I'm not sure. I hate to think of him leaving American Idol. I think he is the glue that sticks it all together and moves it along.
"I don't have anything bad to say about Ryan, apart from he's too good-looking and he's got too much money. I just hope he doesn't leave, to be frank with you. I think they should try and sort out a deal."
Madonna took to the stage for her halftime show during Super bowl XLVI.
Beside her were Roman soldiers, the duo of LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, and Cee Lo Green.
The NFL and NBC issued apologies late Sunday.
NBC said: "The NFL hired the talent and produced the halftime show. Our system was late to obscure the inappropriate gesture and we apologize to our viewers."
An NBC spokesman explained that a system in place during the telecast attempted to blur the image but was late by two-third of a second, or 20 frames. He could not identify how many seconds of delay were in place during the broadcast.
The NFL issued a statement, saying: "There was a failure in NBC's delay system. The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing, and we apologize to our fans".
