I'd be very ashamed of anyone not being able to say Border Collie correctly.

Sort of this. I tend to wait and see what the puppy is going to be like. But I do have the basic stuff (waterbowl, food bowl, a couple of toys and a generic collar). Collars and leashes, most toys and stuff of that sort, I wait to get until I've atleast met puppy or have puppy. I learned my lesson with Ivan, I spend a bunch of money one nylabones and chew type toys and he never chewed on them. So I tend to wait and see what things they are going to like. I might get 1 toy before hand to see if they like that style.

Keeshond is another one of those that gets misprounced more often then not. I used to pronounce it KEY-shund or KEYS-hund ran at an allbreed agility trial hosted by a Keeshond specialty and they made it their mission to make sure we should all pronounce their breed name correctly by the end of the weekend lol.

KAYZ-hawnd

But yeah I think I'm fine pronouncing Mutt . Or Golden Ditzhund and Flying Valley Batdog. And Flat-Coated Retriever isn't one that get mispronounced so much as it confuses people and they sub in other words...Flat-Footed...Black-Coated...Flat-Headed...lol

See that's funny because I notice some people pronounce it like border cOllie, as in the 'o' is pronounced like it is in the word "go".

I think I do the eye twitch every time

Or what gets me is "he's half pit bull and half terrier" which I hear CONSTANTLY because shelters list them as Pit Bull Terrier X and people just can't wrap their heads around that.

A lady once told me that Baxter was an adorable "BITCHIN' FREEZE" and she had two at home just like him!

There's a lady that brings her papillon to training classes in the same building that I work in. She always refers to him as a "Papi-lion", the last I checked he was a dog and not a species of big, predatory cat!
