Now I have to decide whether or not to believe these two tests, or whether to think, as one friend said, that I've been had.
I am so confused. If Riley's results seemed more suited to Boscoe--whose DNA, of course, we did not submit--Rosie's seem more like they belong to Riley.
There was no mention of cattle dog or Aussie, although her mother, apparently, is 25 percent Australian koolie. She is also harrier, Ibizan (and she does have a "springy trot," as Ibizans are supposed to have), and then, in smaller doses, Akita, beagle, and sheepdog.
But the father? Going all the way back, father, father's father, father's father's father....Lab. Lab. Lab. Lab. Lab. As far as the eye can see.
Now I just have to figure out whether or not to believe any of this. I guess it doesn't matter--she's sweet and fairly obedient and eager to please and healthy and happy. We'll never breed her or show her (obviously), and so lineage doesn't really matter. We are merely curious.
And if nothing else, getting the results gives me a great excuse to post a whole bunch of new pictures of Miss Winsome. Enjoy.
