Dog of the Day: Sparticus Minimus, the Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix

I ran into this guy in a park the other day: Sparticus Minimus, aka ‘Spartie’. He struck me as a great dog: a mix of two typically nervous and barky breeds (Chihuahua and Italian greyhound), he was gregarious and playful, … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Pomeranian

Due to the muzzle shape, I would have said that this was a Pomeranian mix; however, the woman on the other end of the leash was quite adamant that it was a full Pom. Well, fair enough, she probably had … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Australian Shepherd

Another sheepy-pup from down undah! They’re a very popular breed in San Francisco, since they act more like a big dog and weigh more like a medium-small dog. They’re a dangerous breed, though. Not because they bite or anything, but … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Very Patient Rottweiler

I know I just posted a Rottweiler recently, but I’ve seen this guy a few times and never got a good picture of him before, so I just had to post him now that I’ve gotten a few. His owner … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Boston Terrier

Another – how shall I put this? – goofy-looking guy. The woman walking him was so proud of him, I didn’t want to laugh. Or make jokes. It would have been so mean. Another two goofy pictures, after the break.

Dog of the Day: Golden Mix

Not sure about the ID on this one. Definitely looks gold-ish, though, doesn’t she?

Dog of the Day: Rottweiler

Another Rottie, for today. They’re not a breed I’ve spent a lot of time with, but I like them. The eyebrows always make them look goofy, and they often seem quite happy to reinforce that opinion by dancing around and … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Barbet

Apparently this guy is a barbet, also known as a ‘French water dog’. That’s the second water dog we’ve had in the last week. Then again, I guess that’s appropriate: it’s been a very wet season here in San Francisco.

Dog of the Day: Weimaraner

I had to spend a little quality time with Wikipedia making sure this guy was a weimaraner and not a vizsla: he’s very brown for a weimaraner, but very grey for a vizsla. However, if he were a vizsla, his … Continue reading
