I had a guy at the dog park absolutely INSIST that Jack was half rottie rather than full lab. Told me the breeder had scammed me-lol.

~Christina--Mom to:
Sally--8 yr old pit bull mix
Jack--6 yr old Labrador
Sadie & Runt--12 yr old calico DSHs
Pickles & Kiwi--3 yr old white winged parakeets
Yoda--1 yr old Quaker parrot
Solo--12 yr old Senegal parrot
Sheena--Quarter Horse--3/24/86-6/23/11--Rest Easy Sweet Girl~

Labs do it in the lake.

No one has ever mistaken my Labs for anything, but, well, Labs. Lol Rose was often questioned as, "Lab and...?" Chloe is called a Border Collie more often than not, or just collie. Which is pretty darn close.

A FedEx guy thought Loupie, the Malamute, was a viscious man eating wolf. As she smiled and wagged her tail at him.

Ever since I started cutting Cooper in a Schnauzer cut everyone thinks he's a Schnauzer. Which I find amusing, as he is silver and tan. Lol
Nobody knows what Cynder is, but they want one just like her.

LoLa is a Boxer. She has to be cause this guy bred them and he knows what one looks like. I was dumbfounded. He got all butthurt that I spayed her cause she would have made pretty pups with his males. I was like...."really???"

Judge is a coyote/wolfX. This guy had one before and he knows!!!

My personal favorite.

LoLa was doing some OB on the schutzhund field. We train in a public park and thus we do have a lot of public people asking questions. A guy and his wife/GF? approached my club members who were watching LoLa and I. The guy asks them what kind of dog LoLa is, they told him APBT. His girlfriend says she was too pretty to be one of "THOSE" dogs. Then her bf/husband says, she is too well behaved to be one of "THOSE" dogs. I came over shortly after that and they were ohhing and ahhing over her about how she couldn't be one of "THOSE" dogs, she was too sweey,pretty,nice etc. They asked me, "What is she, really?" I replied, "Gremlin". They left wondering where they could find the rare Gremlin breed. I told them they are mostly nocturnal and you have to really search for a breeder and find just the right ones and whatever you do, NEVER bathe it! Idiots. plain idiots.

my biggest problems came from vet techs, shelter volunteers & rescue personell who all swore Jack was a pure "pit bull." when prompted to clarify they would say APBT. after a 30 min lecture on my history, pit bulldogs & matching and cur dogs, some of them would claim they were going to go look up catahoula on the computer.
Sonic has to be part wolf because only wolves can have yellow eyes.
asshats, i just don't get how people can wallow in ignorance and argue so vehemenantly on it's behalf.

Did you know Border Collies are the only breed of dog in the world that you don't have to train? Yep! They're so smart they just *come* well behaved.

Or that Border Collies are really actually a mix of Collies and Shelties? They make them that in between size so that they can herd smaller cows.

Or that all dogs with blue eyes are deaf, blind and not very smart? It doesn't even matter if you've had them CERF'd and BAER tested, because those tests don't work on blue eyed dogs.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

Sally's really a sheltie apparently, despite the fact that she's 50 lbs.

Without asking what Fleetwood is, rottie people see him and start going on about their rotts or experiences with rotts. Dobe people start going on about their old dobes and such. I hardly ever correct them anymore.

Most People that do ask, don't believe that beauceron is a real breed, or they try to convince me that I bought a Doberman mix.

On a side note, I had somebody seriously ask me a few weeks ago "Beautiful dog! German shepherd/Dalmatian mix?"

..... uh, what???

I usually don't correct people when they are wrong unless they ask. I can't believe how many people don't know a Doberman when they see one though.

A few weeks ago I was taking Avril for a walk and some guy asked me if she was a puppy. Then he told me how small she was and that my breeder ripped me off. When I told him that I was her breeder and she was an AKC champion/best in specialty show winner, he told me that those things meant nothing and Dobermans HAD to be at least 100 pounds???

Auggie is a "mini sheltie." First of all, THERE'S NO SUCH THING. Second, um, no, he's well within the standard size. So is Georgie for that matter but my mom doesn't take her out in public like I do Auggie or I'm sure we'd get that with her too. =P

Also sigh, miniature collie.

People think Payton is huge. Pretty sure if he was fat instead of skinny nobody would think that, but because he's not also as big around as he is tall, he's HUGE.
