The not-so-dark Dark One grows stronger!

Taz in a blanketGood news – if I was running a livestock operation . . . .

 The general consensus in our household, and among a thoroughly unscientific sampling of about 20 people at two area parks, is that I was a dumbass when I thought I was getting a terrier mix at the local pound.

Based on photos of other breeds, and the above input, we’re pretty sure that we’re the proud owners of a Golden Retriever mix with a spot of chow to make things interesting (note two-tone tongue below, unless the previous owner fed her a magic marker).

  1. oh toooooo cute!

  2. Hey Anna! How’s things? I’ve been rather self-absorbed in Java and HTML the last few days.

  3. Golden retriever and chow? Super, you’ll be able to vacuum her and sell the hair to a knitter! Retirement money!

    Also, in temperament terms, you’re way better off now than with a bloody terrier.

  4. Sounds like a great mix. My favourite ever dog was a labrador/samoyd cross. Big smiles all the time. I was happy too.

  6. Gorgeous!!! She looks like she could do with a cuddle, my 4 kids would LOVE her to death 🙂
    My dad adopted a dog a few years back, he called her ” Tassie”. So Taz is a cute name 🙂

  8. I’m wondering, actually, with her short legs, if she’s not got something like Corgi in the mix. She’d be taller, you’d think, if she were just chow/retriever.

  9. you may be right raincoaster. she’s got that cute “lollipop head” thing going on that faddish female celebrity seem to crave. so much more appealing in a pup 🙂
