    What comments do you get about your dogs?

    Chocolate labs= "are you sure they are labs there not fat"
    "Chocolate labs are hyper, or thick! or i have even had aggressive :rolleyes:

    Not really had much said about the Viz, other then some people thinking he is a Rhodesian ridgeback or a Weimaraner! :D

    "German Shepherds are aggressive"
    "She's a German Shepherd? She looks like a lab" (Some woman told me this)
    "Why is she not muzzled? She will bite"

    And so on :rolleyes:

    "Are they your boyfriends/husbands dogs?"
    "Is that a pitbull?"
    "Is that an Irish Staff?"

    A halti is of course automatically assumed to be a muzzle.

    "Those shouldnt be allowed out in public places".

    What a cheek! :eek:

    The woman who told me Sky was a lab apparently had a brother who bred GSDs. I don't know what he was breeding but they certainly weren't GSDs :eek:ut: :rolleyes:

    I haven't had much yet, but I guess when Sacha grows up I'll be getting the usual GSD stereotyping.

    Just usually have stuff like
    "I could imagine you more with a pug or a chihuahua"
    I don't get why :S

    I get told Buffy cannot be a cocker as they "don't come in black and white so she must be a springer!"
    I also get Suki must be a greyhound (she is a saluki cross)
    Josie must be a pure lab (she is a springer x lab)
    and they have never seen a cocker the same colour as Harriet (she is chocolate roan and tan)

    Poor old Poppy is "just a yorkie" so gets no comments - oh, apart from "Why is one ear sticking up and one lying down?" :)
