As you’ve probably seen, I’ve been absent again for a little while. I’ve had a few family things going on, but now that everything is back in the clear, I’ve also had a little bit of time to prepare for April. It’s going to be a big month ladies and gents (and furry friends).
For April, we’re doing two blog challenges. That’s right, two. This may be a sadistic way to throw myself back into blogging, but I’m ready. The first challenge is the A to Z challenge — For the month of April, you write 26 posts, each one focusing on a different letter of the alphabet. You write every day except for Saturdays. Many writers include a theme; mine is, of course, pets!
The second challenge in the Ultimate Blogging Challenge. This challenge requires that you write 30 posts in the month of April. That’s right. 30. It coincides really well with the A to Z challenge, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Now, onto the alphabet!
A is for…. Alsatian Shepherds, and American Shepherds!
Do you remember this lovely post about White German Shepherds? In the post I mention a few of the other names used for a White German Shepherd, as well as the break in certain bloodlines that prefer to be known under these other names. White German Shepherds are commonly known as American Shepherds in many bloodlines, as well as Alsatian Shepherds (The term Alsatian Shepherd is also used for standard coloration). New comers to the breed who are introduced via these new names often think that they are different breeds, and just similar to the German Shepherd dog, but the facts say otherwise.
If your dog is one breed, or you know what components make up your lovable mutt, what are a few alternative names for their breed that you’ve found?
