The lighter side of "designer dogs"

As an apology for my previous rant, I give you the ultimate in designer dogs: Breeds which don't yet exist, but which really ought to, if only for the sake of a good pun.

Collie + Lhaso Apso = Collapso, a dog that folds up for easy transport.
Spitz + Chow Chow = Spitz-Chow, a dog that throws up a lot.
Bloodhound + Borzoi = Bloody Bore, a dog that's not much fun.
Pointer + Setter = Poinsetter, a traditional Christmas pet.
Kerry Blue Terrier + Skye Terrier = Blue Skye Terrier, a dog for visionaries.
Pekingese + Lhaso Apso = Peekasso, an abstract dog.
Bloodhound + Labrador = Blabrador, a dog that barks incessantly.
Malamute + Pointer = Moot Point, owned by, oh, well, it doesn't matter anyway.
Collie + Malamute = Commute, a dog that travels to work.
Deerhound + Terrier = Derriere, a dog that's true to the end.
Terrier + Bull Mastiff = Terribull, a dog which is an awful mistake
Irish Water Spaniel + English Springer Spaniel = Irish Springer,
fresh from the shower
Newfoundland + Basset Hound = Newfound Asset Hound, the dog for financial advisers
Labrador Retriever + Curly Coated Retriever = Lab Coat Retriever, the dog of choice for research scientists.

And finally,

Bulldog + Shih Tsu = ... Better leave that one to your imagination!

Kathi, those are wonderful!
How long did it take to come up with them? (or is that something all vets easily can manage?)

Very creative.

Love that list. Always funny. I have an addition to it. My mother rescued a dog once who looked as though it had to be Shih Tzu + Poodle. Yup, we called it a Sh*tty Poo. :)

That is too funny. I suspect there was a lot of fun at the office coming up with those designer names.

Nina & NC:

Wish I could take credit for these, but it was just one of those things that made the rounds on the Internet some time ago, and I saved it, not knowing when/if I would ever need to use it. It worked in well with my current theme, so I resurrected it.

These are great. And, it is the lighter side of "designer dogs."

These made me snort my coffee thru my nose - not a good look at work!
