Great pic of Maya! I can't get over everyone's experiences with people's comments. Absurd. I have little to no experience with huskies, but some basic dog breed knowledge, and she sure looks Husky to me! Actually, at the dog park and stuff, I always ask people what their dog is, or if I'm relatively sure, I'll put it as a question like "Is she a husky?" just in case I'm wrong.

Maya is a gorgeous husky! We used to have a red Siberian Husky named Mia, she had blue eyes. In our case Mia meant "missing in action" as she refused to stay home.

I had to give the "you're dumb look" to my childhood friends husband. I took Arisha (our 3/4 husky, 1/4 mal) to our annual city festival and he goes "she's a bit small for a malamute"...I gave him the look and said "she's mostly husky and malamutes aren't supposed to have blue eyes." (Arisha has one blue, one brown). She also has more of a malamute coat as opposed to a husky coat. So I can kind of see how it could be easily confused. Here's a pic.

and I wanna know why some people think that a merle=poorly bred dalmation, is it like how people tend to believe that ONLY pit bulls can be brindle?

thing that annoys me is when I'm walking my dogs and if a police car drives past they stop to ask me if my 'pit bull' is licensed,up to date and if he's aggressive
Chav ain't no pit bull bar his colorings he's got nothing in common with one either

this is posted on 2 topics but it covers both sorry
does this count as flooding lol?

I understand exactly how you feel...  I get it all the time about Rusty and Brisco (my two Saints)

"What kind of dogs are those?"  -ignorant mom at Petco

"They're Saint Bernards." -me

"Nooo, they can't be. are they mixed with Pyrenees or Collie or something?" Ignorant mom

"Uh, no." -Me

"Well Their Fur is Really Fluffy." -Ignorant Mom

"Saint bernards Can have rough, longer coats or Smooth, Shorter coats.  These Two happen to be the former.  And they've just been bathed." - Me

"I don't think They are Saint Bernards, Your Little one (Brisco, who is nowhere near to being full grown and is already a lean 150 pounds at 13 months) isn't BIG enough."  - Ignorant Mom

"Mommy, Their Beethoven's"  - Ignorant Mom's Super Intelligent Little Girl who has just come out of the Bird room at Petco (I really hate it when my dogs are called Beethovens, but in this case, I was thankful)

No, I have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE as to what kind of dog I own... >:(

Yeah, the Giant Rare Dalmation is classic. It's one thing for morons to tell you what kind of dog you DON'T have, but to categorically state that the dog you think you have is, for an absolute fact, a breed that doesn't actually even occur in nature - THAT'S a good one!
