My dog is a ....what?
« on: April 28, 2007, 07:16:52 pm »
What breeds has your dog been called?

Phelan is a Bullmastiff, we've gotten:
Rottweiler?
Pitbull
Chocolate Lab (um?)
Do you know what he is? (Yes, I do!!)
Staff
Dogue de Bordeaux...or really...is he Hooch?
Boxer
Mastiff from the Canary Islands (Because he looked like the dog in her puppy class, hmmm, that one made me laugh, but who am I to tell her she's got a Presa in her class, apparently ignorance IS bliss)
And the next person who tell me he looks like a Tiger is going to get a whopper of a story. Tiger? He's Red brindle sure, but Tiger?

My smooth Vizslas have been called..
Pitbull
Greyhound
Coonhounds
Ridgebacks
Red Weims (??Whats a Red Weim??)
GSP
Dobermans

So far Breeze has been called...
A Lab mix
 My favorite Breeze breed guess came from a Petsmart groomer who was sure she was a "Vizsla-Doodle" and that "I had been taken by the breeder" since there was "no breed called a Wire-haired Vizsla" she was positive because she owned a book of rare breeds and they were not in there. ::)

The police have come to my house before to discuss how skinny my PIT BULL was. ::)

That is a HUGE Black Lab!

And of course, That's not a dog!  That's a horse!  Oh, if only I had a nickel for everytime someone spouted that.  And they always think it's the first time I have ever heard it!

I also love all the food questions.  I have been asked how many POUNDS of food he eats a day.

I am kind of a big deal!

Oh Lordy, lol

Sweetpea and Merlin have been called:
longhaired chihuahua
pomerainian
but most of the time all we get is a
"oh my how cute? what ARE they?"
"they could fly away with those ears"
"where's your magic feather dumbo??" (I could have killed that woman)


Atlas hasn't dealt with this yet, but some people question me when i say hes a German Shepherd, they go "arent they supposed to be black and tan?" GRRRRRRRR >:(

sounds like we get the same comments!  i hate the husky comment, esp when they ask how much axle weighs and i say about 140lbs and they say the chunky comment.  uh, maybe he's a little chunky, but not a much!

ooh i just read your reply. yep the husky comment bothers me too.

And your Axle doesnt look chunky (from his piccies), the thing with akita's is they have a lot of skin, but when you feel underneath it its usually rock solid.

How dare they say our boys are overweight, especially when you don't even know what a husky (let alone akita) should look like!

lol unfortunately, in his age axle is getting more and flabby and less muscular ha ha.  he does kind of giggle when he plops around!  he's got a gigantic chest and a saggy belly and then a teeny tiny butt ha ha.  seriously though, it is annoying.  anyone who knows huskys or malamutes would know akitas are definately not one!

With Morpheus a Neo/Dane we get

Catahoula all the time
Dalmation....t hey are white  WTH

Most people just ask "what is he?".  We usually tell them that he is a Great Dane X Chihuahua Cross.  And dad was the Chihuahua.  You would not belive the people that belived us.
We also get the how do you afford to feed a dog that big. And when I tell them that he only eats 6 cups of kibble a day I get the poor dog you are starving him to death look.  And of course the Who is walking who line or the saddle comments, yeah havent heard that one before.  All of my freinds have started calling him "The Shetland Pony with Sharp Teeth."  He doesnt seem to mind so I guess I dont either.

AJ our Keeshound is the one that we get all of the crazy guesses on.

He has been called..
Akita and a
Malamute ... Umm hello he is 35 Lbs.  WTF
Newfoundland .... he is gray and black
Huskey
Norwegian Elkhound
Spitz
A Baby Chow
Or any other fuzzy breed you can think of

Most people just ask what is he so I tell them a keeshound and they are always like "WOW I have never head of them, what are they."  To which I love to reply.... HIM  ;D :P ;D
