    DefaultYou have a what???

    A woman on the Orthodogs board just posted to ask a question about her "Boxweiller".
    Your what?
    Wonder if she paid money for it.
    These designer breeds are getting out of control.

    The names drive me nuts. NUTS. People ask me nearly every day what Monster's cross is, I say he is a french bulldog crossed with a jack russell.

    I've had a few people say, "OH!! A bull-jack! I've heard of those!" And I correct them. No, not a "bull-jack", a french bulldog crossed with a jack russell.

    At first I was really nice about it, now I'm just irritated and probably more curt than necessary. :P

    I agree...the Mastadors, Peek a Poos, etc...but a Boxweiller is a first for me.

    I agree ~ it's getting ridiculous! Just call it what it is "a mixed breed"! Nothing wrong with that!!!

    Ok. Now they are just making this shit up. The word you are looking for is MUTT. Its ok. Nobody is going to judge you for having a mixed breed...unless you call it by a stupid name like Boxweiller. How obnoxious.

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    The names are getting really stupid. I met somoeone on the park the other day who told me that her dog was a lab/spaniel cross, AKA Labaniel or spanrador. WTF??

    Would a jack russell crossed with a Shih tzu be called a jack-shit?

    I blame J-lo... What did everybody call her and ben affleck?? This need to combine names is dumb and then charge people stupid amounts of money for a "designer" dog... I don't get how people will pay.

    I paid $75 for my Shadow and I thought I was getting a husky... I got a husky/GSD mix. He was the best dog in the world probably because of the GSD in him LOL!... He was a mix... Big deal (I didn't like to call him a mutt, don't know why it bugged me). I would never have paid a crazy amount for a resuced mix... I just don't get it.
