Cross Quiz: fun reblog for dog lovers

Thought I’d reblog this for a bit of fun.
No, this is not the picture we’re using for Maggie’s canvas.

I read an article on Yahoo yesterday about a couple’s response to being pestered about when they were going to have a baby (Headline: Congratulations, it’s a Puppy), and it got me thinking……….
Not about babies, but cross breeds.

1. Groodle : the puppy in question, a cross between a golden retriever and poodle.
2. Labradoodle:  labrador cross poodle.
3. Sprocker: cocker and springer spaniel cross.
4. Lolly: labrador cross collie.
5. Grippet: greyhound cross whippet.
6. Bastie: bassett cross westie *.
7. Springador: labrador cross springer spaniel.
8. Cockerpoo: cocker spaniel cross poodle.
9. Masador: mastiff cross labrador *
10. Maggie!

She’s a Sprollie (springer spaniel cross collie)

*Note:
don’t know if these two exist, but I have seen a bassett cross shar pei (very weird) and a mastiff mix, so why not?

There must be loads more out there, fact or fiction, cats too (don’t even think…

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Our dog must have been either a Shepradore or a Labherd, as she was a mix between a German shepherd and a Labrador retriever.

  2. Back in the day we used to get those dogs cheap and they called them mutts!

    • Now they are designer breeds and cost a small fortune!

      • I read an article that the guy who “made” the golden doodle regrets ever making the mix because they end up quite mean and people have to either give them away or put them down. David had one and after a few years he was so aggressive, he would bite David!

      • I think I read that too, though the occasional ‘accident’ is permissible I suppose. We had boating friends who had one and he grew to be twice the size they expected. They had to lift him onto their boat, which he didn’t mind, but wouldn’t get off.
        There is also interbreeding within the blood line (SIL was a breeder and Crufts judge). I worked for a kennels for a short time and didn’t like the way the owner overbred her bitches, mating them with brothers or father.
        Maggie was a first cross collie/springer. The farm had two pairs of dogs, and the collie bitch and spaniel dog got together! Good news was the springer bitch also produced milk, so all ten pups had a good start.

      • Yes, overbreeding is a sorry practice

      • I read years ago that boxers were so interbred for ‘design’ that the pups had to be born by caesarian because the heads were too big. I love dogs, and I was really upset when I read it.

    A friend has a Chiweenie – a dachshund X chihuahua. Cute but a little too high strung for my tastes…
