diego on the BIG WATER

Yes, it's another installment of adventure for my favorite Pomeranian! That's Mt. Rainier in the background there, and he is in a canoe (that's a canoe, right, B.?) bobbing gently upon the waters of a bay in Puget Sound.
You know how I love Diego's rich red-orange color. Over the last century plus of recorded Pom history, colors listed include sable, chocolate, blue, fawn, and then of course black, white, and orange. There was a vogue in the 1860s for dyeing white Poms some bold colors. You may read an interesting and beautifully researched page full of info on the history of Pomeranian colors here - one of the pages at The Pomeranian Project.

We like a goodly Pom. It's amazing that the Pom is still a Pom and the breed hasn't been wrecked by extreme breeding. Our Grandmother had Poms, tan ones and black ones. They were all very feisty apparently and ruled their home.
