Little River Duck Dogs aka Nova Scotia Duck Tollers!
Calypso, Ghost and Splash are made up of a little bit of this and a little bit of that. 💜Starting with the Micmac Indian dogs, they skillfully blended in various other retriever breeds, Cocker Spaniels, Irish Setters, and maybe even farm collies. The result became known as the Little River Duck Dog.

DAY 18 DOGGOS
These Nova Scotia duck tollers were such a pleasure to meet @canadianpetexpo, but I am not going to lie they are hard for me to tell apart, but I am gonna give it a go. These three are a mom and two siblings. In the first slide is Calypso, the second features mama dog Splash, and the third is the constantly playing and therefore blurry Ghost. @canadiandogsannual please correct me if I got it wrong!
FUN FACT: Canadian shout-out! In 1995 the breed was officially declared the Provincial Dog of Nova Scotia - the first and only breed to be awarded this distinction. In 2003,on July 1 (Canada Day), the breed was fully recognized by the American Kennel Club - a fitting salute to a True Canadian dog. (moderndogmagazine.com)
SIDE NOTE: There are only FIVE uniquely Canadian breeds! (Out of 175 recognized breeds)
There was one I had never heard of at all and now I want to find and photograph her 😀.
Almost brought him to work with me today. I pulled into the parking lot and he made a big sigh from the back seat and I realized I totally forgot to drop him off at daycare! I wish he could come to work with me, I'd get so much done... 😏
