Nope I'm going for obvious! You could of course have been more specific (Standard Poodle) but if I ask for that someone else will guess it and really I think it is your win .I would guess Poodle but that might be a bit obvious. It does look like a water retrieving dog though. Maybe Irish Water Spaniel (although I'm not sure they come in that light a colour)?
Over to you to post the next challenge.
