Dog of the Day: Satchmo the Bouvier Des Flandres

Well, the only post I have on the blog prior to this that was marked ‘Bouvier’ is, shall we say, a hotly disputed identification. (And is almost certainly wrong… but I do try to go with what the dog owner tells me when I get an ID from them, so I’m going to leave it the way it is.)

However, I’m a bit more certain of this guy. The ears are so distinctive! However, the color is apparently a mismark, so this pup would never make it in the dog show circuit. Lucky for him!

Edit: How’s this for serendipity? I posted Satchmo on Thursday. On Saturday I ran into my second Bouvier ever (pictures coming soon), and his dad knew the owner of this one! His name is Satchmo. Also, apparently the source I got my information from above is wrong, because Satchmo is a two-time champion in the dog show circuit. It couldn’t happen to a fluffier pup.

Assuming this is one, they’re cute! I wonder if the beard is really darker, or if this pup just got a drink recently.

I want to play with those ears. Flickflickflick. I would probably annoy that dog no end. šŸ™‚

    I am the “parent” of the other Fawn Bouvier. I checked in with this Bouvie’s owner. The Bouvie’s name is Satchmo. And as a Fawn Bouvier owner, I want to clarify that Satchmo is making it in the show ring. He isn’t quite two years old, but he has two major wins under his furry belt.

      Woot! Congratulations to Satchmo, and I will fix that part of the story right away. I guess someone forgot to include ‘fawn’ on the list of acceptable colors on their web site, and I just assumed that they knew what they were doing. Silly me. šŸ™‚

    I’m Satchmo’s “mommy” (you can kind of see me in the photo – “daddy” is the one holding the leash). Thank you for posting a picture of him! And thank you Garry for clarifying the information. Even though we might be biased, we think fawn bouviers are pretty cute!

    • Adam Lang says:

      I think they’re fully adorable! But then, I think that fluffy corgis with floppy ears are more or less the cutest thing in existence, and those are mismarks according to the boring ol’ AKC.

      But hey, if they recognize Satchmo’s awesomeness, so much the better! Do you happen to have any more pictures of him online?
