Lily, Cafe Canine-Camera Critters

Lily is a 2-year-old Keeshond. Unusual looking, isn't she?

"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." ~Roger Caras


Keeshonden are compact little animals with a strong resemblance to its ancestor the Samoyed, with oblique chestnut eyes, erect triangular ears, and its medium-length tail rolled on its back. It has a cream or pale gray undercoat and a luxurious outer coat that comes in shades of gray with black tips and stands away from the body. Its coat always appears to have just been washed and combed. The markings are quite definite and there are distinctive pale "spectacles" around the eyes.

  20. Hi. This is my dog Ivy (not Lily). I enjoyed reading everyones comments. Our family feels very blessed to have her. She has been the perfect dog for our family. For all of you who has asked - grooming her does take time, but she is worth the work!
