Doggie DNA

So my mom and I have always disagreed on Rocco's breed. When Gus and I adopted the little guy when he was 8 weeks old at the shelter (almost 4 years ago- whoa), the shelter lady told us that someone brought in Pudge (Rocco's name for 7 1/2 weeks) because she already has two dogs (a bassett hound and a rottweiller) and could not keep their little love child puppy.

But- could this have been a cute little story to sell the big floppy eared Pudge? My mom believes that he's got some other mixes, like a Coonhound. She then sent me this link. Its a Canine Heritage Breed Kit. For the low low price of $79, you can figure out your dogs breed. I almost want to sign up for it just to settle the debate once and for all.

A little gchat with me and the Mom..Maury povich.. if you're reading this.. I think we would make some GREAT paternity results television.

Now that is funny! I have this Chihuahua/Dachsund mix, but everyone says he has min pin. I always wonder.

DO IT.

And I love how like, every episode of the Maury Show is a DNA test. They should definitely do a doggie one. Hahahaha

That's so cool. My dog is (we think) a pointer/black lab mix, so I'd totally do it. But I'm with you on the parents paying for it lol

picture this...we send $80 and a picture of Rocco, aka Pudge...the "Lab technicians" are at a sleezy bar and joyously toast the sucker who sent the money for their next quick drunk. They pass the picture of Rocco around and consider all guesses on what the heck is this muttsky...Ah, the scientific process has always fascinated me...Who is on Rocco's birth certificate btw
