U was a tough one but since we get so many questions about what breed of dog Teach is, I thought Unique was appropriate.
There is a t-shirt at Cafe Press that I would love to get to wear around because I've had all these questions. Had one just last week ... said he was a Collie/Greyhound mix. LOL!!!
My response is always "No, he is a Smooth Collie. He is just like Lassie only doesn't have all the hair". Then its like a light bulb goes off and they see he is a Collie. Everyone knows Lassie so that makes it easier to relate to them.
I also think where he is a tri color and not a sable/white it also confuses people. He is unique in our part of the state.
