The fun of having a mutt (or soon having a mutt!) is that everyone wants to take a gander at what she is. So to that end I decided to post her picture on Yahoo Answers and ask what people thought she might be. I've gotten some answers that really make sense and some that are off the wall!

Two people thought she had Newfie in her. Newfie? She weighs 46lbs. The average Newfie female weighs 100-120 lbs. Yeah...not likely!

I tried to stave off chow thing...most people guess chow because of her spotted tongue, but I don't think she has ANY chow in her at all. There's nothing chow about her.

The most common answer is lab/retriever, which I think is likely. The three most common answers are some sort of cross between lab, border collie, and flat-coated retriever. The latter seems unlikely only because they're not that common of a breed.

In other news, we have the new apartment all set. He's sending us a lease to sign so now I just need to go over and tell our current place that we're moving out!

My husband's dad has a BC/Lab mix and boy is it hyper! I mean, a lot more puppy-like, active, and playful than a typical adult Lab. From what I understand about Dahlia's temperament, I don't think BC is in the mix. She's probably Lab with some other retriever that has longer fur.

She certainly doesn't have the BC or lab personality traits. She's MUCH more calm than either of those. But then again, you sometimes meet dogs that are a purebred and fairly calm. Like Tanner, the Aussie we met. He was the calmest, sweetest Aussie I've ever met. Most are exuberant and very active, but he was ok with just chilling.

Yep...we're going to check and see if she has any webbing on her feet. I do think her feet looked more oval like than round, but we're going to see!

We can't wait to get her! 9 days and counting!
