  •  A huge Pom? How cute! (7+ / 0-)

    That magnificent tail is quite the production. Very familiar because of Sophie and Riley.

    •  The original poms (5+ / 0-)

      were actually about 30 lbs and were working dogs that pulled small sleds.  My Willie Bear is a throw back to those dogs.  It is not only his size, but also his heavy wooly coat.  He loves the cold weather.

      I think that the keeshonds have not been messed up so much by the breeders and show people.  They probably still look like what they were intended to be.  ;)

      •  My son thinks Keeshonden have been messed (4+ / 0-)

        up irrevocably by breeders. He has seen pictures of Keeshonden that are supposed to be authentic old versions of the breed, and they look nothing like contemporary dogs.

        Judges love a profuse coat, he says, so they go for "that Chow blood," an "unverified opinion" of his.
