Am I the only one who noticed that any time someone doesn't know a dogs breed it's always a lab mix.
that's b/c labs are a VERY popular breed, and I wouldnt be surprised to see someone's lab running around in heat than, lets say.... a Burmese Mountain Dog... usually a rarer dog, more expensive dog will be kept an eye on to prevent a cross breed. I live in WV (so lots of hunting here) and I worked at a groomer shop for four years I a Plott or a Curr had never came in the shop, and to tell you the truth, I wouldnt even be able to tell you what either look like
(altho Im googling it in a sec, haha!! Black and Tans, Redbones, yeah...
But I should have known about a hound not always "bawling" , and I should have! The little beagle/basset that I was talking about never howls!
