Following up on our post from yesterday, we thought it handy to include this cheat sheet for the proper spelling and capitalization of pointing and retrieving dogs. Enjoy!
German shorthaired pointer, GSP, or shorthair (also known as Kurzhaar)
German wirehaired pointer, GWP, or wirehair (also known as Drahthaar)
Chesapeake Bay retriever
American water spaniel
Don't forget: Only capitalize if part (or all) of the dog's name refers to a geographical location. Or when you're referring to it in a different language in which it would be capitalized.
