|I'm just curious on sill random odd things that people have mistaken your dog for (e.g. A breed he's not, being the puppy of your other 2 dogs, etc... anything that made you either want to laugh your head off, or want to slap that person in the face & say "YOU IDIOT!!!")
I was taking my Shasta for a walk one time, he was wearing his blue paw-print harness, and I had dark sunglasses on. A girl riding her bike next to me said "Can I pet your guide-dog?" I said "What?!" She said "Aren't you a blind person with a guide-dog? I mean you're wearing glasses and the dog has the fancy harness!" So I took off my glasses and loosened Shasta's leash a bit, "Nope, I'm normal... see? I can see just fine"
Another time I was down at the playground making him go down the slide, jump over benches, and do his obedience. A couple boys came over, and with their jaws dropped said "WOAH! Is that a real live police-dog?!?" I just chuckled and said "Nope, he's my mutt... I don't think he could ever be a police-dog!"
Some stories I've heard of are people who had a couple big dogs [I think it was like a Golden Retriever & a big mutt], and a little terrier, and they've had people stop them and say "Awwww your puppy is so cute! Are those two his parents?" "uh... no... my 'puppy' is about 3 years old and a purebred JRT..."
