Other Popular Mixes Perhaps you need some teh cute with your coffee? Behold the Basschshund? And wonder to the Dorgi, the Bassugg, or a beautiful Jatese. Need a best friend? Look no further than the Kimola, or the Glechon. Here's a Peagle to cure what ails ya, and a Pug-a-mo for good measure.
  • I disagree.
  • The Chiweenie looks as if it should be able to fly.
  • My neighbourhood (Vancouver, West End) is a veritable cornucopia of such mix 'n' match houndery. Making What The Hell Is That? a Sunday sport while strolling the pan-handled boulevards. Also applies to strange objects being sold for fifty cents by shifty dudes at the Dog Park on Nelson or courtyardy thingy at the corner of Cardeo and Comox.
  • Handsome wee things. But where are their shawls?!?
  • You can find little furry guys in coats just as cute as these at your local animal shelter. AND you can call them by whatever nute came you want. They'll *steal your heart, I'm tellin' ya. *and may even steal your wallet.
  • I've been wanting to breed a male Chihuahua with a female Great Dane. The breed would be called... (wait for it) a Great Wa-Wa!
  • You put that joke back where you found it, squidranch. You don't know who's been touching it.... *wurves all the adowwable doggies*

  • MonkeyFilter: My dog Steve is a Chug. In other news, How is it that the dog, alone among Earth's species, comes in so many shapes and sizes? It's a faskinatin' quarstion. Why do we know people are the key? Think of your favorite species of wild animal—elephant, eagle, barracuda, whatever. Does its kind come in as wide a range of shapes, sizes, and colors as the dog? Not even remotely. "You never get that kind of variation in wild populations," says animal behaviorist James Serpell of the University of Pennsylvania. "For the most part, selection in the wild is towards one particular type that does best in whatever environment the species has to deal with. In fact, divergent individuals tend to be selected against."
