More Accurate Dog Breed Names

Dog breed names generally say nothing about the dog's appearance, temperament, or size, so isn't it about time we unofficially rename certain breeds so we can more easily describe them to each other?

Not everyone knows what a Shih Tzu looks like off the top of their head, but if you call them Long-Haired Smushmugs (a much more accurate description) people will know exactly which breed you're talking about.

Likewise calling a Collie a "Lassie" instead just makes sense, just as a Golden Retriever is best described as an "Air Bud" and Great Danes should officially change their name to "Scoobies".

But what about the slightly harder to describe Basset Hound? Melty Slobberlogs, what a perfect description!
