I have a pink, purple, and orange collar on penny & a purple lead. Everyone says... "Oh, HE'S so cute!" or "How old is HE?"
Drives me crazy! Just because she doesn't look like a froofy girl dog..
I will say that when we have her out she is always a star. Everyone loves her. I've even had people say, "You know, I don't really like dogs, but she's so sweet"
