Dog crosses

Philpotts (the cooperative’s dog) is a cross between an Afghan and an English sheepdog; first he chases the sheep, then he knits them into sweaters.

(From Joanna Russ’s novel On Strike Against God.)

I welcome suggestions for what other hybrid dog breeds might do, along similar lines.

    Afghan Retriever — a useful dog to have if you keep dropping your blanket while lounging on the sofa.

    Not *quite* the same thing, but I like inventing names for fictitious hybrid dog breeds. My current favorite is the bloodhound/cavalier king charles spaniel which would obviously be a Sanguine King Charles Spaniel.
