There is an unusual Pomeranian named Boo. This particular dog has Over 5 Million Fans on Facebook. Boo is a wonderful oddity. His owner chooses to remain anonymous but uses the pseudonym J.H. Lee. Boo's Facebook page was launched in 2009. You should check it out.
Boo is a Pomeranian breed of toy dog. The Pomeranian descends from the Wolfspitz and some of its extended family include: German Spitz, Chow, Akita, Alaskan Malamute and Samoyed. In the late 1800s Queen Victoria owned Pomeranians. This breed originated in the Far North regions of the planet. So the first AKC standards were from England and then later they began breeding and showing in America and it was recognized by the AKC here in the US in 1900. They are expected to be moderately muscled, sturdy and well balanced in spite of their size.
Pomeranians are easy to identify by their profuse coat which is double. They possess a soft undercoat and a much coarser and thicker outer layer of fur.

Comments: Do you have a Pomeranian? Please say hello!
Congratulations on your new bundle of love!
I just took in a Pom last week, tomorrow I will have had her a week. I had wanted one, and low and behold a neighbor was walking two down the street that were 2-3 years old that needed homes. I took one of the couple and she has a wonderful disposition. We do have some work to do on the housebreaking, she uses pads, and misses sometimes. She is also in heat right now so maybe things will settle when that is done and we have her "fixed"...but I'm in love! I'll probably do a page about her sometime. We had to say goodbye to our Yorkshire Terrier 2 years ago in August, and it took this long for me to be ready for another dog.
