It has been a while since we did a dog puzzle.  We love puzzles and we hope you do to.  Here is another encrypted puzzle on dog breeds.  

Decode the list below to reveal several dog breeds. Each letter in the code represents another letter of the alphabet. For example, let’s say that XYYGKA can be decoded to spell poodle. Therefore, X equals the letter P, Y = O, G = D, etc. This is an example only. The list below has its own code. By figuring out at least one of the dog breeds below, you can decipher the others using the same code. For a hint in figuring out the code, see the very end of this post. See the solution posted in a few days.

1. EQZA

2. JAKXM  URWXKQHCI

3. ZKFIKVTI  ICMIACGCI

4. URTMMAUW  MCIIACI

5. RTRNCI  UEKXACZ

6. KOOCXEAXURWCI

7. FZKRN  IQUUAKX  MCIIACI

8. URWAEECINC

9. FCZJAKX  UWCCEVTJ

10. XCLOTQXVZKXV

11. Bonus – What do all these dog breeds have in common?

(Encryption hint – for the first one in the list, note that there are 11 letters. Find a dog breed which has 11 letters, and all one word. There may be more than one. Then note that the 3rd and 4th letters are the same. Narrow down your search by finding 11 letter dog breeds where the 3rd and 4th letters are the same. If you still have trouble, not that the 10th and 11th letters are also the same. Your dog breed will have 11 letters with the 3rd and 4th letters the same and the 10th and the 11th letters the same. Once you have discovered this dog breed, you can solve the rest of the puzzle because every other dog breed in the list will follow the same code.)
