Please meet one of my shepherd mixes (or the foot of), Idaho, also known as an oversized Bichon Frise. I’ve got two shepherd mixes, and when we added the newest one, we decided to drop the money on those genetic tests to determine the breeds contained in your mutt.
One test, for the dog adopted from a White German Shepherd rescue group, came back as we thought: German Shepherd for most of her DNA, husky, poodle, and Saluki for the rest. Weird, but not crazy.
The other test really surprised us: Idaho is apparently half Bichon Frise. My 75 pound dog who thinks that she must touch you for 20 out of 24 hours is apparently a lap dog.
Since that test, we have a new joke. Hence, the category on this blog. Ida is crazy, and often gets her foot or nose onto my lap as I am writing a story. You’ll probably see plenty of cell phone photos much like this.
