|Omg, everywhere we go, 85% people assume Chaplin is a doodle, which is fine, I don't care. But if you ask me just to "verify" or you blatantly say "it's a doodle dog!" I am going to correct you. I will do it nicely. I will not be rude or snobby about it, just factual...
People are actually getting mad at ME for saying he is a portuguese water dog!!!
Stranger: "Aww, what a cute doodle!"
Me: "Oh thanks, he loves the attention. But he's actually a portuguese water dog." Heck, most of the time I even throw in for their 'sake' (despite not wanting to) "like the obama dogs!"
Stranger: "You don't have to be so rude about it. If you don't like doodles why did you buy a dog that looks like one!?"
Seriously... we get this stuff all the time, and it's getting annoying. I wanted a purebred dog so I got one, I can't help that you don't understand the difference between my portie and that dude's doodle. But don't tell me I'm the rude one simply for letting you know your ASSUMPTIONS were wrong. This happens all the time! If I'm not a breedist I'm a snob or rude or whatever else.
