If you ever watched agility, you'd think border collies were bred for that. They dominate the sport so handily that using any other dog breed is handicapping yourself.

Her doggies are fine, it's the woman herself that's the problem. And she's not the queen mum, she's the queen

There's nothing wrong with the 'woman' who enjoys universal popularity. And I very much support that question, as the Queen's corgis are world-famous, and is in fact a reason for the breed's growing popularity around the world (including where I live in China).

Having a monarchy, especially a hereditary one, is completely incongruous with democracy and equality of opportunity. I would go so far as to say they are mutually exclusive.

And clearly she does not "enjoy uniuversal popularity".

I didn't say there is anything wrong with the question, nor with corgis.

Wikipedia says it's sometimes called a dogote. That's what I tried first. I think it should be accepted.

I never heard of a coydog but I've seen wolfdogs so it made sense.

It was a '60s, '70s, '80s thing when coyotes started coming in from Canada reclaiming U.S. territory they'd become scarce in. Biologists and game wardens were identifying them as interbred animals. Now that they're everywhere in those regions people just calls them coyotes no matter what kind of family tree they might have going on.

Snoopy is a beagle?? Are we allowing self identification for dogs now or something?

Level 68
Oct 14, 2021
A thought for the republicans who posted further up about the Queen. Perfectly valid point of view, and one that can be easily justified. BUT, I can think of very, very few world leaders I'd rather have as the head of state representing my country. Maybe Angela or Jacinda...

And Alex, your post made me smile but I'm pretty sure Schultz identified Snoop as a Beagle.

+1
Level 83
Oct 15, 2021
That's correct. Schulz (no T) did an arc once where Charlie Brown was in a spelling bee, and had to spell the word "beagle." Of course, he got it wrong, and was ridiculed, by Lucy I think, for not being able to spell Snoopy's breed.

Thank you Freestatebear - first time anyone's responded to one of my posts. It's quite exciting. (Not only did I spell Schulz wrongly, I also missed the 'y' off Snoopy.)

Not sure how many 'M' names I tried. 20-25 I'd guess. Never did get it. Never known a dog named Max.

Max is the dog's name in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." That might be partially responsible for the popularity.

It never occurred to me until I did this quiz that Americans called sausage dogs 'weiner' dogs. You learn something new every day!
