Having unusual looking dogs we usually get quite a bit of attention when we go out with them. However, we always get the same questions and comments.

We hear these everyday at least once!

1) What kind of dog is that? ( Roxy)… then invariably they present their opinion of what breed THEY think she is!

2) Wow, they look alike, is the big one the other ones mom( sister, cousin etc)?

3) She (Roxy) really looks like a fox ( wolf, coyote)

4) Wow, look at their eyes, do shelties normally have blue eyes?

5) They’re so well groomed, do you brush them? ( no no they’re just natually fluffy) lol

We’ve joked that we need to get t-shirts printed up with the neccessary information!

I complain but I don’t really mind in the end. It gives me the opportunity to tell people that they are both rescues. People are always amazed that these are dogs people didnt want!

  2. I know exactly how you feel – everytime we step out of the house with Caillou there are a million questions.
    My favourite is “Did you shave him?”
    Yes, he’s a hairless dog. Yup, that looks exactly like a normal furred dog. Funny how being a dog does that eh?

    Good that it allows you to share the rescue stories though – they are both gorgeous dogs!!
