I have been told I look like a Greyhound mix ... thinking

My legs are long for a chihuahua mix, but I don't think I have greyhound genes in me. My Mom and Dad were purebred Chi's and my brother and sister are both purebred Chi's... I weigh 20 pounds so I'm pretty sure someone else is my dad, but not sure what breed he was...

Maybe one day we will have a dna test to find out!!

BOL Marley -- the best part is that you said it was a "story worth repeating! laugh out loud

Even we didn't have a good guess about what Natty's breed was when we got her. I think her first vet records have her down as a "shepherd/lab mix" or something! big laugh As she grew (or didn't, I guess is more to the point) we narrowed it down.

One thing we know she's not is a wolf! That's not what a guy at the laundromat in New Orleans thought though! Natty's was her daddy's laundry partner back when we lived in NOLA. One day they were hanging out waiting for their wash and a guy came in and said, "WHOA! That's gonna be a big wolf!". Mike said, "Huh? She's not a wolf. And she's full grown." The guy persisted that Natty was just a few months old (we had had her for about 6 months at that point) and that she was a wolf! People are silly! It's always mystified my that people will actually argue your dogs age with you.

When I lived in Philadelphia Meridian got called a wolf all the time, too. The prevailing thought in my neighborhood in Philly was that if a dog has short hair it's a Pit, and if it's got long hair it's a wolf. Simple!

Marley,
Interesting fact. Poodles and Bichons were interbred a very long time ago, and some purebred poodles and bichons have each other in their lines, because this dated so far back to even tell. But if you want to get technically in all reality Poodles and Bichons are basically the same dog, with minor differences or variations. I've had poodles my whole life, and my mom wanted a bichon. Recently I've been doing a lot of research on the breeds and their history.

I've been mistaken for -

a long haired chi

a pommie

a jack russell x

a CAT (WTF??)

I am a papillon!!! It really upsets Momma when someone tells her I AM a phalene. Phalene's are pretty rare and their ears are shaped different and don't stand at all. I am a soft eared Pap, where the cartledge is too thick, or something.
