I think you should start making up breeds when people ask you. I told someone Bailey was a heffalump one time and the woman asked me if I imported him directly from Germany or if they bred them here.
So last night at a local small concert I had one women yell from across a group of people "Are those Border Collies or Catahoulas"
..... cause you know those are two breeds I think look alike.
And then another women ask if they were those cata.....dogs.
So I'll send some of these guys to you ok?

Also, you and Kay have inspired me to teach Trent to climb trees (or at least pose on them
). He's has more lumbering brute than agile grace, but it's worth a shot
ETA: I also didn't get to say this before, but holy crow am I glad you have a camera again.
Climbing trees is fun! Though no one stands up to Gaia and her tree climbing ways!
And I'm super happy I have a camera now too
