If you’ve been watching The Last Dance on ESPN, you know that Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls were darn near unstoppable in the 1990s. That’s sort of what it’s like to be a Labrador Retriever (above). For the 29th year in a row, the Labrador Retriever tops the American Kennel Club’s list of America’s most popular dog breed.

It’s really no surprise that the Labrador Retriever would be ranked #1 year after year. The breed is considered to be very family friendly and eager to please. The top five are the same as last year, but there’s a new entry in the top 10. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi (below) landed at #10 on the list.
