Fun Photo Friday: Cute Parts of Korra

I’m sure no one will think me biased if I say that Korra, my Border Collie/German Shepherd mixed-breed dog, is the cutest mutt in the world. Possibly the cutest mutt ever.

I know there are plenty of beautiful and adorable mixed-breed dogs out there. I have had others besides Korra. But this dog has so many cute parts I decided to pay homage to them for Fun Photo Friday.

From the Top

First, we have her ear feathers, in the photo above. Next up…

Her ear feathers when wet, which get all crimp-y. And that bit of brown undercoat buried under the black fur on her head.

Her “bandit mask”
The whisper of a white line down her snout

Her Groucho Marx-like “eyebrows”

The “skunk line” of black and white down her leg

Take It Down

The orange feathers on her forelegs, which I call her orangutan hair
tri-color dog leg
The beautiful tri-color pattern on her forelegs
black dog tail fan
Her enormous plume-like tail, which practically has enough life to qualify as a separate animal
black tan and white dog fur tail
The colors inside her tail: Black on the outside, a tan layer below that and a white layer in the middle

The Grinch-like long fur between her toes

The Sum of the Parts

And here she is, with all the parts put together. 

Have you ever noticed that your dog can look completely different in one photo to the next? To me, Korra looks foxy in this photo, and I don’t mean a male dog’s dream. I mean her face looks small and her snout pointed, resembling a fox, which is not how I picture her. I see her more as a big bundle of fluff and love, a bit more like this photo.
