It’s not very PC to call me a mutt

When in America, it is politically INcorrect to call mixed breeds a mutt – we were told! LOL!

We met this lovely lady who told Mummy that when she called me a “mutt.”Mummy, you have to stop telling everyone I am a mutt.

You can call me a Heinz 57 dog.

You can call me “an accident” … (ha! ha!) or a Hungarian Refugee

But the correct term, we were told is – I am a Mixed Breed!!!!

May’s comment: Ah, yes, that PC thing has made its way to the dog’s world. LOL! We were told “mutt” is a derogatory term and they are now mixed-breeds when more than two combinations.  And a two combo is a cross-breed. But I love my maltese/shih-tzu/Yorkshire terrier mutt!!!The handsomest of them all!

    From The Pocket Oxford Dictionary of Current English, 1982; printed in Great Britian at the University Press, Oxford:

    mutt n. (sl.) Ignorant, stupid, or blundering person; (derog.) dog. [abbr.”mutton-head”]

    It’s not nice in GB either. “House of Mutt” is a play on words.

    Huggies Georgie!!!! You’re a “multi-cultural boy”!
