So I was walking my maremma today and was stopped by this couple. The lady was all over him and the husband was very interested. Then the lady started saying how they've been looking for their first dog and wanted to know what breed he was. I asked if they ever had dogs before, she used to have a maltese and he grew up with a jack russell. I thought to myself that if I tell them what breed he is, they're going to go to some BYB of maremmas and get a pup because they sell to anyone and get themselves into all sorts of trouble. So I told them he was Golden Retriever X unknown. They got so excited and started talking about maybe getting a golden. I felt bad for lying and love discussing the breed with people but didn't want to risk it.
