You’ve heard them referred to as mutt-i-grees, Heinz 57 dogs, mongrels, mixed breeds, and just plain mutts. But my favorite description of a dog with uncertain heritage comes from a book I just listened to on CD.
In “The Best Revenge”, Stephen White describes a pack of dogs this way: “None of the dogs’ gene pools had been contaminated with an AKC specimen in many generations.”
OK, I’m warped, but I thought that was just a hoot!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
