Real life different dog breeds are so much fun. One I saw at a RAlly trial recently was a Longhaired Chinese Crested. CAn you say Miniature Afghan Hound? That's what she looked like. Maybe Toy Afghan. Seems the breed has two types of ears, erect or down and more hound like and hers were the down ones. She did very well too.
There was a Chow breeder near us and we dropped in to see puppies once. Do you know what is fascinating? You knew their tongues started out pink and begin to turn blue around 12 weeks of age, right? Well, they are all born with black coats and begin to turn red about the same 12 weeks. It's like their tongues and coats switch colour.
