Sugar and Spice in Montana



This is a picture of Spice and Sugar when we lived in Montana.  They are Pomeranians and I wanted to show them with their full coats.  We keep them trimmed living here in Florida for the obvious reasons… too hot for all that fur!  Last week some folks were wondering what breed they were.


Pomeranians have two coats.  They are well suited to the cold winters of Germany.  They are actually miniature Spitz bred down in size to become their own breed.  You can learn more about them at  AKC-Get to Know the Pomeranian.  They are little dogs with HUGE personalities! <3 <3



I am glad to be part of Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge.  Sugar and Spice love all the attention too! <3

Thanks for visiting today.  I look forward to seeing you again later,

  1. Adorable!

  2. They’re beautiful puppies, Colleen!

  3. Poms are probably my favorite breed. I have a half Pom/half Long-Haired Chihuahua.

  4. They are absolutely beautiful Colleen.

  5. How cute are these dogs? 🙂

  6. They look so sweet. I especially love the last picture where they are both looking up. Thank you so much for taking part. <3

  7. Both cute as ever. I would imagine they are so relieved to have their fur clipped. Toby hates the heat and he has a thick corse coat being an outside herder breed. He’s a bit like me enjoying the cooler Autumn days and nights, when we can both sleep because the humidity has gone for another year.

  8. Sugar and Spice and all things nice…They are adorable! 🙂

  9. Hi Colleen, Sugar and Spice have the sweetest faces. I love the way they are looking up at you in the last photo. I’m fascinated with Spitz dogs double coats, and wondered how they’d fare in the hot weather. Now I know. Thanks so much.

  10. adorable – the nature of these animals brings joy and laughter!

  11. Awww, they are so cute!
