Tuesday/ the Boerboel

Here is a boerboel*, a ‘new’ breed that debuted at the 2016 Westminster Dog Show held over the weekend in Madison Square Garden in New York City. The picture is from the CBS News website.  (‘New’ because we had neighbors in South Africa with such a dog, and this was several decades ago!).

*Boerboel is the South African name for the breed, and it is pronounced boo-r-bull in Afrikaans. A simple translation is ‘farmer’s bull dog’.  A more accurate translation might be a ‘Boer’s bull dog’.
