Okay, first the names: Isatas (pronounced eez-taz) means ‘snow’ in, I think, Inuit. Ddol Ddol means something in Korean but I don’t appear to have written down what it was.
And here’s something surprising about them: in the ratings of canine intelligence, German shepherd is rated as the third most intelligent breed, and huskies are right in the middle of the pack. Shih-tzus are rated 70th… out of 79 breeds. And yet, at least according to mom, Ddol Ddol is the clear brains of this operation, and Isatas is a little… slow. Loving, cuddly, adorable, and very eager to please, but… not the brightest candle in the wind, if you catch my draft. Uh, drift.
