Apart from not smelling doggy, having a non shedding, allergy friendly coat, an innate connection with human minds, being so brilliant to train that it's almost scary, plus an uncanny intuition and wisdom (even in young puppies) combined with a goofy sense of humor, and coming in three sizes-Miniature Medium and Standard, they're not all that different to any other kind of dog. Oh! and did I mention that they are probably the healthiest pure dog breed on planet earth?
