What Kind of Dog Is That?

There is no simple answer.

There is no simple answer.

A fearful dog.
A fast dog.
A smart dog.
A well-trained dog.
A dog-reactive dog.
A playful dog.
A smiley dog.
A thunderstorm-phobic dog.
A lure coursing dog.
A performance dog.
A dancing dog.
A rally dog.
A happy dog.
A goofy dog.
A teacher dog.
An awesome dog.

But those aren’t the answers people are looking for when they ask that question. They want to know what breed she is. But she’s not a breed. Nor is she any combination of breeds I can confidently rattle off. She is simply a mutt. So that is what I respond with much to everyone’s disappointment. Sure, she may not be some special rare breed of dog or an interesting known mix of purebreds. But she is so much more than “just a mutt.” 😀
