  • Interested to know what famous people own your breed of dog?

    Hi, I checked it up and I have a list of famous people who own certain breeds of dogs.

    If you would like to know which famous people own what type of dog, you can post it and I'll check it up!

    For instance, those out there who own Boxers, here are the people who own Boxers too:actor Humphrey Bogart of Casablanca has one named Harvey, author Emily Bronte has one called Keeper, actress Jodie Foster, acotr Charlton Heston, artist Pablo Picasso, actor Sylvester Stallonehas one called Gangster and actor Robin Williams. And these are just a few!

      Okay, Italian Greyhounds are consistent dogs, which includes self-contained and home-loving dogs. Is your dog like that?

      here are the people who own Italian Greyhounds:

      Only Three of them - Carl Fisher, first land developer of Miami Beach has one called Pizza! Cute name.
      - Frederick the Great, king of Prussia had six of these dogs, and one of their names include Madame de Pompadour! Quite a loadful.
      - Peter the Great, the czar of Russia has got one called Lissette

                  Right, Shiba Inu.
                  Sadly, the book seems to have neglected this dog! But I know this breed, I've seen it in other books before. Quite a sweet thing, huh? (Well all animals are sweet anyway).
                  Do you have a Shiba Inu then?

                    Yea I have a Shiba Inu named Bear. I introduced him on your "Balto's Profile" thread He's 9 years old and is a black & tan. Shibas are probably more popular over there because it's a dog native to Japan. I don't know :P Lotta books neglect the breed. Here's a new pic of Bear.
