Stepford dogs?

I was in Old Town last week and had a great time. I was just wondering why so many people in town have the same type of dog? Kind of brown and fluffy, looks sort of like a larger, tannish bichon. Are they some sort of status symbol?

Old Town is ranked one of the top cities for being dog friendly. We have all kinds here. I'm not certain what type of dog you are referring, but I'd note that the big new favorite in town is the Portugese Water dog. In fact, several of the past President's dogs (and the Obama's I recall) have been trained at our own Old Town School for Dogs.

Next time you come visit. Bring yours to enjoy your stay! They are welcome at the outdoor cafe's along King!
