To be fair to whoever sold it to you, "Hair coat" sounds absolutely disgusting.

That means that "Furries" should change their name to "Hairies"... and actually, that's probably an apt description most of the time....

Every dog I've ever owned has been a mixed-breed mutt of largely unknown provenance, so I just make up breed names if people ask. Currently, we have an English Pitador.

That has a very classy sound to it.

I own a SharPitador myself. Sometimes if I'm in a snooty neighborhood, I don't call him a mutt, he's a "blend".

Pugs are NOT the #1 stupid dog! My vote would be for the Pit Bull.

No way. I have owned and bred several pit bulls and they are some of the brightest, not mention sweetest, dogs I have ever owned. The mistake most people make with a pit and many dogs in general, is not knowing how to train them and not keeping them motivated and stimulated. If you let a bright dog sit around and do nothing all the time they will never live up to their portential. The saying a mind is a terrible thing to waste is true even of animals

Do not follow me, I walk into walls!

Stupid video. Just poop on everything why don't you? The video was just mean, and not funny.

Ah, you're the MARLEY & ME guy, I suppose? You tried to disguise it, but your username gives it away! Sorry if it hurt your feelings.

Nope, you guessed wrong, I just think dogs can do funnier stupider things than what the video displayed. The video was not funny, just mean.

I would never own a Lab - can't take the food stealing, trash diving.

Too late, I'm on to you. So what did you think of Owen Wilson's portrayal of you in the movie? Was it weird to see Hollywood celebrities acting out your life experiences?

Yup, you are definitely a cat. Probably high on catnip. Any dog with any brains could tell I am really Rin Tin Tin.

First of all, it's not that pugs themselves are stupid (as in unintelligent), but that their very existence is stupid (as in, who in their right mind would breed such a dog?). I have to agree wholeheartedly. Secondly, it's not that (the existence of) mixed breeds (as in mutts) are stupid, it's that deliberately creating boutique mixed breeds and giving them cutesy portmanteau names is stupid. What the heck is wrong with calling your dog a "lab-poodle mix" and leaving it at that?



Because you can charge a lot of money for something called a Labradoodle. A Lab-Poodle mix is just a mut.

I don't know how any can say with a straight face, I have a labradoodle (or cockapoo). The things we do to our best friends...



I have two bichons frises. I don't care for the breed's name so much, but the dogs themselves are wonderful. You have to be careful about the source of bichons, though. If you get them from a good breeder, you'll be happy with them. But there are a lot of ignorant breeders out there who produce bichon puppies with poor dispositions or genetic defects that will be fatal later in life.

I got my bichons frises from a breeder who specializes in show dogs. The puppies weren't good enough for the show circuit, but they are still excellent dogs and make great pets. They get along with our young kids very well.

Totally agree! Meanwhile you can get the same thing at the pound for 50 bucks!
