Tkay your girl does look like a Maremma pup in that picture. Very cute.
Paw-Sha what a lovely boy Buddy was. I bet people sometimes called him a GSD x.
Puggerup when I got my first Pug Mary (a black) a woman asked me what she was crossed with. She said Mary could not possibly be purebred as there was no such thing as a black Pug. The husband has always called the Pugs Miniature Mastiffs when he is not telling people they are aliens.
I'd love to see a photo of Hyacinth, Hyacinth. I like mystery dogs.
I might take the Whippet to the bus stop next time and find out what sort of cross he is.
