Was wandering around to search for dog breed and found and article posted by MNAWF (Malaysian National Animal Welfare Foundation) which list quite a complete number of breeds and their characteristics. For those who are interested to get a dog for guardian (be it house or personal), well it’s good to know what sort of dogs suit you. Take a read if you’re into one before deciding.
To quote one of the dog owner, “Getting a dog must never be a spontaneous decision. It’s just like if you’re planning for a child, you need to think of your living arrangements, your finances, everything. A puppy is a commitment for the next 15 years”.

Thought this could be useful in near future, reposting this for my own reference:
‘ calculate the MD5 hash of a given string
‘ the string is first converted to a byte array
Public Function MD5CalcString(ByVal strData As String) As String
Dim objMD5 As New System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider
Dim arrData() As Byte
Dim arrHash() As Byte
‘ first convert the string to bytes (using UTF8 encoding for unicode characters)
arrData = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(strData)
‘ hash contents of this byte array
arrHash = objMD5.ComputeHash(arrData)
‘ thanks objects
objMD5 = Nothing
‘ return formatted hash
‘ utility function to convert a byte array into a hex string
Private Function ByteArrayToString(ByVal arrInput() As Byte) As String
Dim strOutput As New System.Text.StringBuilder(arrInput.Length)
For i As Integer = 0 To arrInput.Length – 1
