I take Annie every where that I can. Parks, stores that allow dogs, the dog park, outdoor festivities etc. However where ever I take her she gets called a golden doodle (she'd be a tiny one), poodle, schnauzer, mutt, etc. I think the only two people who knew what she was one ran a rescue and one showed dogs. I've even been told I was wrong when I said what she was...

BOL! Oddly enough, my mutt Emma usually gets pegged as a wheaten terrier! oh dear, when I adopted her I just thought- "what a cute black puppy!". It was only later (after her first haircut- hello blonde) at our training class that our trainer brought up that she is probably part wheaten. So yeah we do smile

ETA: she even has a tail and people still guess wheaten. laugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loud

I just get a lot of "What breed is THAT?!" when I walk my foster because she's shaved right now, ha! But when people do guess, they guess Cockapoo.

I have had a few people guess correctly when asking about Sweet Pea. She is only 8 months old and still has some of her puppy color.
