Photo Of The Week 2-28-2011

This is Mint Julep and her human mommy is Rebecca Spaid. I decided to dress Mint Julep in honor of the Oscars being held tonight (since she was already half way there with her pink sun glasses). Isn't she just a cute little fashionista? Thanks Becky for letting us use Mint Julep's photo! She is such a STAR! According to my dog Lexi she deserves an "Oscar" for looking so darn good! Mint Julep is a Pomeranian Dog. The Pomeranian (often known as a Pom, or more humorously, Pom Pom) is a breed of dog of the Spitz type, named for the Pomerania region in Central Europe (today part of eastern Germany and northern Poland). Classed as a toy dog breed because of its small size, the Pomeranian is descended from the larger Spitz type dogs, specifically the German Spitz. It has been determined by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale to be part of the German Spitz breed, and in many countries, they are known as the Zwergspitz (Dwarf Spitz).
