Curiosity

 
Mom and Dad are often asked, what type of dog is Dora? While it's pretty obviously she has a lot hound in her - you should hear her bay - there's definitely something else there. She looks a lot like a foxhound but she's not quite big enough. Maybe mixed with a beagle???

The crew has been toying with the idea of doing a DNA test to find out a little more about her background. Not that anyone cares what breed she may come from. She couldn't be loved more, even if she came from royalty.


Over the weekend, Mom ordered a Wisdom Panel Canine DNA Test. There are lots of different tests one can buy but Karen's niece used this one on her rescue dog and recommended it, so, why not? It arrived today.


There's a couple of swabs with detailed instructions for retrieving the DNA from her cheek. The test has to be done 2 hours after any food or treat, so we need to wait because Dad fed her some of his chips from lunch.


Then the box turns into its own return package. Wait a few weeks and we'll be able to look up her results online.

Dylan and Dee Dee want to run a pool but will only accept treats, no money. They don't have any pockets to put the cash in anyway...


We'll pop the package in the mail tomorrow. Then the whole crew will wait with bated breath for the outcome. Whatever the results, one would be hard-pressed to find a better crew than this.

We'll keep you posted.
