There are some dog breeds that are so common you almost don't notice them.  No, I won't say which dogs I no longer see.  Then there are breeds you don't see very often,  especially here in Ottawa.  I can honestly say the only place I had seen a Chinese Crested, until this weekend, was on TV. 

That's why I had to talk to a woman I saw in a Manotick shoe store holding a unique little hairless bundle that was wearing a dress.   Gwen Pappas just recently adopted "Betty Davis", a Chinese Crested from an American Rescue Organization.
