It's not only guessing the wrong breed, because Katy is big & muscly people assume she is a boy Rolling Eyes even with a pink collar & lead!!! Surprised

'it'??? If anyone with a child calls him 'it' I'd return the compliment. Is that your child, how old is it?

I might be stupid but staffies are short haired so you can see all the relevant bits needed to notice which sex they are!!! Even wearing pink they still get Katy wrong Surprised

An old woman in a mobility scooter when mia was still alive after the audacity of almost running over her paws had the cheek is he alright? Had to prewarn before my dugs paws were destroyed( mia had a bright pink collar with glow in dark stars at the time) . I wasn't very polite when i said she should have an eye test before driving said mobility scooter (oops) not really as i had to put myself in front of scooter to stop mia being run over. Honestly people!!

Had the pitbull comments recently, mostly folk know he's a Staff though which is good, although, a few have thought he was a lab pup when we first got him and the change in body language upon correction was comical Big Grin Big Grin
oh well

That just reminded me, i had "lost" lexis pink harness and collar..was quite annoyed about it. Asked my mum and she had NOT seen them.

A few days ago i found them in a drawer in a room we never use that MUM and PUT them in Laughing broke my heart a little cause it made me miss her to much. But still...good memories.
