Bobby Visits for Wet Nose Wednesday [Sponsored]

This is Bobby, a 1 and 1/2-year old Morkie!  What? A Morkie? Yes, a Morkie, or, better known as a Yorkshire Terrier / Maltese Hybrid Dog. This hybrid was originally called the Yorktese, but is now more commonly called the Morkie. The Morkie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Yorkie and the Maltese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Watch this cat lick this marshmallow, wonder if that was the right thing to do, and then continue trying to figure out what the heck this little white ball even is.

Tom Cook’s Workday Dog Break – Jack Russell Does 35 Tricks [Video]

This is one talented dog! I've met a few Jack Russell Terriers in my day, and they're all pretty smart. I don't think I've ever met one that can do this many tricks, though!

Okay, so maybe calling some of these things "tricks" is a bit of a stretch, but this is still pretty cool to see.

Tiger, a 10-year-old Catahoula mix.

What is that, you say? 

The Catahoula is an American dog breed named after Catahoula Parish, in Louisiana. As a working dog, Catahoulas have been bred primarily for temperament and ability rather than for appearance. Tiger, with her very even disposition, came visiting Andy Rent on the "Andy in the Morning" show for Wet Nose Wednesday.
