    Maybe the poobradors are the other half of the litter, the ones that are high strung and shed everywhere! I think the more correct term is mutt. Though, there supposedly is an actual naming convention when different species are crossed that has to do with the first half of the name being assigned to...I think the mother...and then the second part from the father (or vice versa...I don't even know where to begin looking up that information anymore). So, a Liger would be a lion mother and a tiger dad, while a Tigon would be a tiger mom and a lion dad. And why anybody would want a Tigon or Liger, I don't know.

    The mixed breed dogs are locally known as Potlickers. When crossed with a Pitbull I refer to the offspring as Potbull :approve: (suppose could also be a Bull-licker, but this leaves bad taste in mouth). :tongue2: :biggrin:
