Hey, here's quiz for all you dog experts out there.
What do you get when you cross a Bichon Frise ...
... with a Shetland Sheepdog ...
... with a Doberman Pinscher?
You get one of these!!!
Yes, I went and got Simone DNA tested. We were at the vet getting her heartworm recheck (she's clear!) and some other stuff done and I caved and decided to let them do a cheek saliva swab to send off to one of those breed testing facilities.
The results, which seem kinda dubious - but hey, who knows - tell me that one of Simone's parents was a Bichon Frise (possibly a purebred) while the other one was a Shetland Doberman mix. Simone didn't care for the news since I told her that now that she is officially 50%, or thereabouts, a frou frou dog, I'm going to start making her wear tutus and glittery jackets with rhinestones and carry her around in a handbag.
Anyway, I got to thinking. Why not show off some mixed-up, muttacular best friends by asking you all to post up your own mixed breeds and tell us what you think or know their parentage to be. Just post them up on the wall of the Pound Dogs Facebook page so everyone can take a look at all your wonderful pooches. Also tell us where they're from (especially if they're from TAS) and any other info you'd like to share.
