Interesting? A Peruvian Inca Orchid that came into the bookstore I worked at once. VERY shy but very cute! She looked like a little alien!

At shows...I do UKC so I see some rare dogs now and again...but for interesting the Standard Parti Poodles.

I've met a lot of different breeds in person, but I'd have to say Leonberger, too. I met one about 18 months ago at a local pet supply store. Not only was he gorgeous, but he was such a mush, too!

Well, I know there was one in the Netcong area about 10 years ago. I met it when I was working for my vet.

I've seen a lot of weird mixes over the years. I'd have to say the coolest was the Border Collie/Bichon that was enrolled in the obedience classes I assisted with. Although the GSD/Basset mix that hung out at my sister's first wedding was pretty cool, too.

The most interesting purebred dog I've ever met was this adorable grizzle & white Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, named Peabody. He was the one of the cutest, funniest, sweetest dogs imaginable!

The most interesting mix I've ever seen... was probably a Corgi x GSD. He looked exactly like a GSD, just with very short legs. Most Corgi mixes are pretty silly looking... ;D

I think Afghan hounds which are one of my favorite breeds. They are just so unique looking especially because of how they are groomed. I also saw a Boxer Dalmation mix. Rather odd, Boxer build to a tee but the white with little black spots body like a Dal.

An Alaskan Kee Kai, dont' think I would ever want one, but he was an interesting little guy.

We had a newf GSD cross. He looked almost identical to a leonburger but with the colours reversed.

The most intresting I have ever met is probably the Borzoi. As I am in love with this breed from what I have read. but never met one in person until about 4 months ago. I ran up to the lady at the dog park as she was leaving and asked if it was a borzoi. She was shocked I even knew what one was. BEUTIFUL dog. I would love to own one one day.

Most intresting mix? Umm probably a boston terrier australian shepherd mix. Strangest looking pup. Looks exactly like a boston but with blue eyes and longish curly hair.

spinone. my initial reaction was omg it's a muppet! my follow up reaction was omg i want one! lol. i don't think they're actually a breed i'd be content with, based on this beautiful, sweet, gentle girl, but she does make me drool.

i'd love to meet a thai ridgeback. i find them extremely appealing in pictures.

as far as mixes, there was a really pretty pit bull / shar pei mix at the shelter awhile back.

I met a Spinone at a match quite a few years ago. The guy almost fell over when I asked him if that's what it was.

Every time we go to our local PetSmart we seem to bump into "Leo," the Neoploitan Mastiff. He's HUGE at 196 lbs. - probably 80 lbs. of that is his head. Leo is a true gentle giant - sweet, saggy and oh so handsome. He makes by Bodi look like a Chihuahua.
