This is not the first time.
Tonight out on our walk, some guy walks by and asks "is that a Doberman?"
Politely, of course I go Yes
BUT
I think I might start telling people, he is a Chihuahua mixed with a great Dane.
It was even funnier, when I had my Lady (Fawn-Isabella), people would be all adoring her, and they would ask what kind of dog. Once I told them, some would jump back.
People are so funny,
Aside from that, Nubis had a great day, lost a few baby teeth on a nice femur bone, lol and learned "wave" and "hike" command.

I had somebody ask me the other day if Dreizehn was a German Shepherd.
At least they got the country of origin correct?

Is that a Labrador? Is that a husky? Is that a Dalmation? Is that a Kelpie (questioner knew a Kelpie)? Is that an "English Terrier" (they meant Bull Terrier)? Is that a Pit Bull? Is that a "Doberman Pincher"? I know I've been asked a few other breeds, but don't rember what, off hand. What do y'all think? Is she any of those breeds, or am I just deluding myself when I say she's a mutt? :confused: :)

Rosemary, is that Ilka? She is beautiful!

While her head and ears make me think a little bit of a Pharaoh Hound I have no helpful guesses as to what she is. Methinks you need to post more photos of her :D

That is totally a smooth coated karelian bear dog.


I really have no idea :)

Patchwork, yes that's Ilka. I'll post more pictures as soon as I get some more film developed. I still shoot 35 mm with Minolta and Yashica SLRs, and the odd roll of 120 with a Yashica A TLR, but I'm getting DVDs done starting with the last batch I took in. They will be ready Thursday, and I will see what's on them (they are labeled with the date and camera info, but not subject). That only leaves another 45 or so rolls to get done. I'm almost embarassed to say it, but the ones I'm getting done now are from 2010.

As for Ilka's breeding, I did do a DNA profile, just to get an idea of what I was dealing with (I've heard they aren't very accurate). It came back mostly Bulldog, then Italian Greyhound, with a dash each of Am Staff and Collie. We're still scratching our heads over the Bulldog part. Somebody joked that I should just call her a Pear Orchard Dog, because that is the part of town where I found her. I've even had a few people insist she had to be a purebred something, because she's so pretty. :D

Here's a picture of her on 1-21-12. We got a 88 in Novice B.

ETA Sorry it's blurry. Photographer did give permission to share the photos.

I love your girl Rosemary. I'm a sucker for those ears.
