It wasn't so long ago that the only breed I knew of that was 'purebred' but not really was a Munchkin. Readily I knew it was a mix of a yorkie/shihtzu. I'm not even sure how I knew....there's no indication in the name of what in the heck it really is. But the breeder and the owner's liked to tell me how they were going to be registered with AKC 'soon'. Now, there are so many 'designer dogs', I can't keep any of them straight. Right out of today's local paper I see: Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, Shimas, Schnoodles and my fave of the day-Havachons. I can venture a guess on the noodle dogs, but the other 2 are a little more challenging. The last one sounds like a slang diner order for nachos. (No offense to whoever breeds these creatures). What's worse, the dogs that used to look like Shihtzu's are now something entirely else, and God help you if you guess the breed and get it wrong; some of those owner's get downright UPSET that you can't (obviously) figure out what kind of purse pooch little Fluffy is. So, to have a little light heartedness for all of us who apparently don't know our dog breeds anymore, I offer you this designer breed of my own: A Shipoopionme. (for translation, shitzu, poodle, papillion and maltese). And be assured that this special 'pure bred' wonder of mine will only set you back a cool $500 clams or so...
