I ask this because there are lots of informed dogpals out there that may have a view.
After I had adopted master and mistress, the locals in our village said I was a Spanish sheepdog – un perro pastor – from the mountains.
That’s a reasonable deduction, because I am nice to all livestock, and I am very furry, which would keep me warm in the mountains.
But the other day when we were in Gib, people kept calling me a white Alsatian.
Now, it has to be said that when I found master and mistress they thought I could be a cross between a husky and a GSD.
Although I have a white face and big amber eyes, the markings on my saddle do look like a GSD. But my friend Prince was not like me. Although he was a shepherd dog he barked at everything. I don’t think he would have made a good pastor.
Now I don’t bark at much at all. And even in the morning, when I am telling master to do breakfast, half the time it is more of a roooooo than a bark.
So what do you think pals? Husky/GSD cross? Oh, and we have looked at Poseidon’s blog, (see Bone Zone – photo of the month) and I think we look similar in some of the photos.
I almost forgot. People keep saying I look old. Me, OLD! I am sure I was a (large) puppy when I found master and mistress. I might have looked a bit hot recently, and I had the poorly tummy, but I AM NOT OLD. I don’t think.
Pippa. A bit confused.
