I have no idea what kind of doggie this is...any ideas?

Update: One of the stickers on the case says this pup is a Coton de Tulear. Fancy!

One of the best things about the dog show was not just that there were hundreds of adorable dogs with friendly humans, but also the fact that there were so many different kinds of dogs walking around. Dogs I'd only read about, or seen in YouTube videos! Dogs like the PERUVIAN HAIRLESS, which I'd longed to see IRL. (In addition to YOLO, my students taught me IRL this summer. Eep.)

The women with these dogs were really friendly, and explained that it's necessary to oil these dogs down (yes) and to coat them with sunscreen. (I frequently saw them doing both.)

Look at these beauties!

It's like touching a baby.

Check out those skin wrinkles!

Dedicated to SPD...!

I once had a funny conversation with my French mom about how some people in the U.S. associate poodles with France (she hadn't heard this). But apparently French poodles actually originated in Germany. Who knew!

Happy Thursday.
