I took Oscar to Pets at Home on sunday, to see about a car harness and get it fitted.
While I was there, he attracted quite a lot of attention and people wanting to pet him.
I was asked if he was a small great dane, or a foxhound/greyhound cross… which I thought was quite funny. He’s a Pointer… but apparently they aren’t very well known.
It got me thinking about other cases of mistaken identity we’ve had, the best ones that spring to mind are a boy exclaiming ‘mummy, why is that lady walking a fox?’ (meaning Simba, my tiny rough collie)
and when I was a child we had a red miniature dachshund. We were walking him one day and someone asked why we had a weasel on a lead… :what:
I find it quite funny, as I tend to know what most breeds are, or I just ask if I don’t know… but what other creatures have your pooches been mistaken for?October 5, 2009 at 3:23 pm #112931MudgieMember
Was once asked by a 4 year old if Nacho was a pony ;DOctober 5, 2009 at 5:45 pm #112932xtineMember
we usually get a ‘medium schnauzer’ or a ‘middle sized one’… but the other day we had ‘is that a normal schnauzer?’ ::) there aint nothing normal about fritz 😀 and that’s from mini schnauzer owners usually 😮
oh and Val, just for you.. we have had ‘that’s a bearded collie’ a few times and with such conviction too….. we always joke about telling people ridiculous breed when they ask….. 😀October 5, 2009 at 6:07 pm #112933kerrie and stanMember

Rottweiller has been suggested for Piper, understandable I guess as their colouring is the same but build wise she a tad slighter ;DJanuary 18, 2010 at 6:26 am #112935sofapupMember
