    Popularity draws people in, but yes the breeders should be steadfast, in theory. Unfortunately in breeds without much interest the money breeders usually move on looking for an easier to sell commodity, that's all I mean.

    Side note, I met a pyr today. Very cute!!

    I will take him. I was talking to a pyrshep person recently and she says people just assume hers came from the pound. Poor weird looking little sheepdogs. :lol-sign:

    Shep? lol

    If I saw Quinn on the street I would guess Border Collie cross too! :) She's on the bigger side for a BC bitch but has a similar build.

    We have an ES (different breeder, but same grandsire as Quinn) who comes into my work pretty regularly. His owner was very surprised when I knew his breed - he definitely wasn't expecting it! He started to do the spiel about the breed, then I mentioned I had one and her was surprised, then SUPER excited lol!

    "Sloan" & "backup" are weird names? I guess to someone they might be but I don't think they are weird, I think they are cool! Backup's name just fits his adorable expressionable face :D

    There was a ES at our last agility trial -- pretty tri girl (almost no white...looked nearly black and tan). I asked if she was an ES and the lady grinned and talked all about her for the next twenty minutes hehe



    Regarding Flat-Coats, I actually haven't had anyone guess anything weird in a while. In the summer if we're out in public it's usually to go to the lake, and there people just say she's one happy retriever. At training/competition stuff here, everyone pretty much knows who she is now and are familiar with the breed. I even went to a PetSmart with her about three weeks ago and a gal in the parking lot called out, "Is that a Flat-Coated Retriever???" I was surprised she knew, but Mira was just happy to get some lovin' lol

    I get that a lot with Savvy "Awwww did he come from the pound?" or "how wonderful that you rescued him!". And I'm like "errr...ummm....weellll....". Oh and if I take him to the flea market people automatically think I'm trying to give him away. And that was especially so when he was a puppy.

    Occasionally people meet him and are like "OMG I love him!". Usually people who are into dog sports but occasionally pet owners too. I guess some people just like crazy ;) I think it's safe to say he won Emily over with his hypeactive-ADD-can-I-be-your-boyfriend-random-springing-flinging charm LOL.

    I LOVE HIM!!! He's very charming indeed, makes me kinda want one. But right now I need a PyrShep like I need a hole in my head.

    He's super cool. :D I liked him even more in person than I do "on paper." I really, really think you'd just love one, Laur!
