How beautiful is this dog? I think I am in love. This breed is called a Samoyed. I saw one of these in Beijing and immediately fell in love. This one was spotted at our hotel in Singapore, and it further turned my heart into mush. I am so obsessed with his beautiful coat of white fluffy fur. When I was growing up, our family dog was a Samoyed and it was the sweetest dog, very gentle, very protective. Samoyeds love babies and are super nurturing. It grew pretty large to the point that I could ride on its back (as a toddler).
