I don’t know, I just don’t know. I’ve seen quite a few Samoyeds in my time, and I’ve never seen one quite like Malia. Her coloration is a little darker than any I’ve seen before. (I’m not sure if it conforms to AKC or not… apparently they can be ‘biscuit’ colored, but it doesn’t appear that anyone is willing to define biscuit coloration.) I thought her proportions were a little off too, but the more I look at the pictures, and at pictures online of Samoyeds, the more I realize that I’m on crack. Oh, and that I’m wrong about the proportions, too.
That said, she’s ADORABLE! And fluffy and cute and cuddly and happy and just about everything you could want a dog to be. Except ours. Le sigh.
Oh, by the way, I’ve included my first ‘dog rap’ in the hovertext for the photos. Please take any criticism out and bury it in the yard. And I’ve now stuck five of the six pictures below the break.
