And I met these guys' mom. Swore up and down my first Landseer Newf was a Saint Bernard. Believe it or not, this was at a dog show and she CLAIMED she BRED St. Bernards. I just told her "well, if you're really a St. Bernard breeder then you know that BLACK and white isn't in the breed standard!" She just shook her head and walked away.
I didn't mention that my first Landser Newf came to me with a completed championship. Should have make a snarky comment about Newfoundland judges knowing better.
The Village Idiots don't bother me as much as the people who ask if my Newfs are mixes? I know they aren't perfect and I admit that they must swim in the shallow end of the gene pool. I know I need to get a thicker skin but it always seem to be other Newf owners that do it.
