Designer Dogs

I worked an adoption event yesterday and sometimes I swear you see that strangest people out there in this world. Holy cow. I was assigned to collie/sled dog mix named Luke and he was gorgeous. Well this lady approaches me and goes, "Oh is that one of those designer dogs? A Colliedoodle?" First off I have never heard of a colliedoodle, ever. Second of all, there are no such things as designer dogs. Do you really want to know what a labradoodle or goldendoodle or puggle is? It is not a new breed. It is a mutt!! The definition of a mutt is a dog that has more than breed type in its lineage. Hello? That would be a goldendoodle or whatever doodle. It's a glorified mutt! So I tell her no it is not a colliedoodle (?) he's a collie mixed with some sort of sled dog. And then she has the balls to say to me, "I only own purebreds, I have two goldendoodles you know." Oh if only I could have said what I was thinking. Really you have purebreds? Oh gag me with a spoon. Puhlease.

So now I have decided that I too have a purebred. His name is Cody and he is a borderador, border collie lab. Leave me a comment and tell me what you have. It's funny, try it.

This is Luke. He's up for adoption and would love a home!!

Hi! I found your blog through your BlogHer post. I am a fellow doggy mama - my doggies are my children and I'm proud of that! :-)

My husband and I always laugh at people who think purebred dogs are the only way to go. I just don't understand why some people would want to spend $500 (or much more!) on a dog when there are so many wonderful doggies out there who need a home.

Anyway, Cody is just adorable!! What a sweet face. My dogs are Ryder (an 80 lb. black lab) and Seth (a 110 lb. mix). We lost our beloved "son" Bismarck last summer (he was a beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback mix).

I love connecting with other doggy mamas! I'll be coming back!
