Is this the cutest dog in the world ?

Post by Circle5 » Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:32 pm

It's called Pomeranian : https://www.google.ro/search?biw=1366&b ... HJCYFmWHoY

I can't believe such a thing exists. I played with one today and played with the same one 1 year ago. A person from my neighbourghood has one. It's very rare, I've never seen any other one except him. Everybody has bichons, I don't know why nobody gets pomeranians.

Besides the super funny face and hairstyle, he has an incredible personality. It's like a bichon on cocaine. Probably the most playful and most energetic living thing out there.

Is this the cutest animal in the world or not ? Why are they so rare ? How can one get a dog that is not a pomeranian ? Really how can you get anything other than this ? If you have a dog, then why is it not a pomeranian ? I want to hear your reasoning.

I know a west highlander terrier which is perhaps the cutest dog in the whole world. She’s so good hearted and sporty. But hands down, my favourite dog is a Honduran rescue - brindle - a very good boy. Pugs are cute too. But for you it is this dog and I suspect it is a subjective matter in the end. I voted “no” and that is my reason.

Poms are fairly common in the US. I voted no, because I prefer larger, less frentic dogs who don't yap. Just my opinion, though, plenty of people think they're cure.

Well, if it's a female it would have been linguistically correct, even if it were not the name of another breed.

They are really adorable, but I prefer bully breeds my self.

That said I'm keen on adopting a pair of Dobermans soon:

Greetings,

Never really been a fan of Pomeranians... I prefer poodles - highly intelligent dogs, with a good temperament.

I'm not a fan of the way some people groom them though!

Jezus 1 vote (mine) vs 6. People here on DW are monsters and topics like this show the true face of them. Maybe this video will change the poll results:

The problem is that you wrote the poll question as:
Is this the cutest pet in the world ?

And everyone knows I have the cutest pet in the world, thus, everyone voted 'no.' :tongue:

My pet isn't the cutest :( It's a jackdaw with a broken wing that the vet did not fix correctly. Breaking it again and re-linking it is impossible cause there is no vet in my country able to do that, they only treat dogs and cats. So he remained my pet.

He doesn't do anything and doesn't even like me after 6 months :( Plus it's making a ton of poo everywhere. And they live 40 years, I've got him for life. But at least it's super smart and you can see that he understands things. Crows are nr 3 smarters animals after humans and chimpanzees. It's probably as smart as a 5 year old since german shepards are like 3-4 year olds. I have the smartest pen on the forum.

So no wonder I am so envious when I see things like these pomeranians lol. I've also found out why nobody has them. They cost between 500 and 1500 euros and bichons are probably for free since everybody and their dog has one :D

Meh, it looks like a cat wearing a dog face-mask. :tongue:

I like proper dogs like labradors and alsatians.

Here is a poem I wrote about dogs:

"Greyhounds are fast,
Greyhounds can hurry,
Which is how they avoid
Being in Chinese curry.

Alsatians are fierce,
And bark loudly too,
Which is how they avoid
Being in vindaloo."

:toilet:
Buddha save me from new-agers!
