Well, you know Kharma is either a weird looking Dane or a Bloodhound . . . because Filas are a figment of my imagination.

I really love the ones who give The Look as they say, "I've never heard of them and I know a lot about dogs" with the unspoken implication that if they've never heard of it, it doesn't exist.

Weirdly, it's the ones you'd think would be the worst about it, the tobacco chewing, if it ain't from the farm it ain't crap kind who are really curious about her and want to know more about what she is -- and don't insinuate or outright tell me she's a mix and I'm making it all up.

Haha..some guy yelled at me "Why don't you have a muzzle on that pit bull?!" one time when I was walking skye. Pfft.

Some lady in petsmart argued with me over what Romeo was...nothing too exciting, just was **** sure he was a GSD mix. But cattle dogs only come in blue! There are no red cattle dogs, must be a GSD!

I normally encourage confusion with my Malinois. "GSD mix", "Belgian sheepdog", "shepherd breed", or give them whatever they imagine.

I rarely argue the right breed for my pit bulls either, "they're old rescues, your guess is as good as mine", its a super fun game to play.

I find it interesting that whenever I'm at an AKC event with purebred people, they feel the need to classify Lucy as a specific breed. They want me to admit that she is part border collie, or part pointer, or part sheltie, or whatever their opinion is. It seems to frustrate a lot of breed people that I don't know what she is and won't immediately accept what they say as gospel.

This weekend at the coursing event, people were absolutely trying to convince me that she was part aussie and part sight hound (because if she wasn't part sight hound, it was "inconceivable" that she was coursing so well).

Eventually I always just say, "Yeah, good point, you're probably right!" and try to change the subject, no matter how much I disagree with their guesses.

Someone once tried to tell me Bandit was a long haired Pit Bull. I died a little on the inside. Usually I get I must be off about his age and breed. No way he's a 7 year old Border Collie. He must be a 7 month old Bernese Mountain dog pup

That's ironic since with all the AKC events I go to with Kim and Webster, I've been asked if I know what breeds are in the mix but never gotten grief about how they must be something or another in particular. They may speculate when I say I don't know but it's all very "huh I wonder if...?"

Around town I've been asked what sort of purebred Kim is on many occasions. Because she's (and I quote this exactly) "too pretty to be a mixbreed." It's often assumed that she's a purebred they haven't seen before as opposed to a mix breed.

Webster is a Miniature German Shepherd Dog, doncha know. Who I should breed. Also they would like to buy a puppy. All based on my dog walking across a parking lot.

Mira and Cookie are a Lab mixed with something. If I think otherwise then I was duped. Or she's just like this dog I had as a kid only he was 100 pounds but they look exactly alike. What did you say she was again? A Black-Footed Retriever (from the Farmer's Market the other day)? Yeah my dog must've been a Black-Footed Retriever too cuz they are identical.

My dogs get called pomeranians and chihuahuas very often. Papillon is becoming a lot more frequent as the breed has gotten a lot more common over the past 8 years we've had them.

I actually don't correct people unless they ask specifically if they are chihuahuas or poms. I used to but I just don't care anymore. I've had people pet them and tell me how much they love chihuahuas. Or tell me they have chihuahuas at home too. I just smile and say something along the lines of 'chihuahuas are good dogs/cute/etc'. Maybe I should correct people more often.

I have had a few people insist they're a mixed breed or designer breed. It's kind of odd that they don't believe me that they're a purebred.

I get a lot of 'oh that is like so and so's dog. Only his is XYZ color that doesn't happen in papillons.'
