OK, phew, I thought I was misinformed after all these years, lol.

Now that is a funny description, especially put side-by-side like that

I remember when we were looking at a dog-book when I was a kid and we were to pick out our very first dog, I thought the Bedligton was cute and looked like a lamb, so I wanted that.

My mom wanted a newfie. Dad didn't really want a dog, but caved under the general pressure and agreed to a newfie ... till he saw the "grizzly" of a huge male, standing on his hind legs leaning on the front gate with a (friendly!) "bououfff". It was a firm "no" from the patriarch there and then

We ended up with a replaced Bearded Collie (the brown version) named Bruno who we immediately renamed Rex! (Original, I know).

So no Bedlington for me. Oh well ....
