We bought a "DNA Your Dog" kit out of a catalog. $67.
For that you get 2 big Q-tips and an envelope. We do a good swabbing of the inside of our dear Pebbles' cheeks (one left, one right. Why? Does she have different DNA on each side of her mouth?) and pop it in the mail.
We haven't got the final certificate and stuff, but did receive an e-mail yesterday. After being completely convinced that she was Border Collie (duh) crossed with some Australian Cattle Dog, Australian Shepherd or possibly English Setter we find out that she is
Border Collie (37-74%)
German Shepherd (20-36%)
Belgian Turvuren (10-20%)
and (woot!) Great Dane (less than 9%)
I was totally surprised by the German Shepherd part. You don't see it physically, but it does make some sense in her temperment. And a sprinkle if Great Dane is simply awesome!
So, stupid stuff. Was it worth $67? Totally. I can't wait to get the full report.
