    DefaultQuestions that make you really scratch your head

    I am sure we have all encountered people out & about who ask about our pups. But have you ever had someone pose a question to you & you wonder what in hades name they are thinking or for that matter if they are thinking.

    Earlier this week, Lexi & I were out on our morning walk. We came upon a couple standing in their driveway & the husband asked if Lexi was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I could see the guy thinking she is a Chessie as Labs & Chessies are similar in looks. I told him she is a chocolate lab, we chatted for a few minutes & off we continued on our walk.

    On our lunchtime walk we came upon a lady, she looked at Lexi & asked me "Oh is that an Irish Setter?" ??? I politely said she is a chocolate lab. As I walked away I thought WTH??? : All the Irish Setter's I've ever seen are much brighter orangey-red, a longer coat and taller, so I have no idea how she would mistake her for an Irish Setter.


    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    I've had that happen countless times but what really gets me is when they argue with you that your lab can't possibly be a lab. LOL Another stupid question I've run into a lot is "when are you going to breed her?" That's when I go into my speel about the millions of dogs in pounds across the country.

    I get a lot of people asking what Mocha is I tell them a lab and they always comment about how little she is. She's 65lbs and just right actually. Zeus on the other hand is tall and lanky with a big head but I love him anyway
    I get the breeding question alot too since they are male and female. I just tell them they are both fixed and that I see too many puppies at the Humane society when I volenteer there.

    sheesh, an irish setter!?!?!? :

    other people with yellows may get this too -- we always get the "golden yellow labrador retriever" or "yellow golden retriever" or "golden labrador" or "yellow golden" any creative variation thereof, for both theo (YL) and dex (GR). i just politely correct them.

    and funny thing is, having one of EACH doesn't seem to make a difference.

    people also ask if they are related (father/son), esp when dexter was a puppy, or littermates now that dex has caught up in size.

    oh and one lady did ask if theo had MASTIFF in him b/c his head was so big. that was pretty entertaining!

    <br />pj, theo &amp; dexter

    "Is that a Noof?"
    "No."
    "A Rottie? Lookit the head..."
    "No - He's a Lab."
    "NO WAY!! Look at the size of him. And the head. No way you've got a Lab there, pal."
    "Well, you're right. He's really a St. John's Dog."
    "Ah-HAH! Toldja he wasn't a Lab!!"

    People have asked me more than a few times if Rukus is part pit-bull because he's so muscular. When I tell them that he's a purebread lab, they always seem shocked!

    Well my favorite was when Seamus was a puppy a GOLDEN BREEDER at a dog show asked me when did I get the Golden Retriever puppy. You could have picked my jaw up off the ground. I was recently asked what Jake was at a show but the person was a spectator.
