We had an ancestry analysis done on Pepper and the results are in! All this time we were certain she was a Shepherd Retriever mix. We were only partly right.

20% - 36% of her DNA is Cocker Spaniel
10% - 19% Doberman Pinscher
10% - 19% German Shepherd Dog
10% - 19% Weimaraner
10% - 19% West Highland White Terrier.

    WR - Thanks for the translation! I also went to the online translator to get my response, above. Ya gotta love how the internet has made us all neighbors.

    Siobhan - OK that was an image I didn't need....lol Like I said, the westie in Pepper is what got me. Think about it: A westie and a German shepherd? Or a dobie?

  10. Mongrels is best!

    They have such lovely characters. We know from what youo've told us before about Pepper that she's a laid back doggie, now we know why.

  12. Ann - When your family gets together, you should dub yourselves "The United Nations". ;p
    I snagged the penguins widget for my blog in tribute to the Drowsey Monkey blog, which author decided to close it for good. The penguins were originally on her blog.

    Val - She was a laid back doggie till we got her baby brother. Now she has to make sure she barks the most and loudest so as to keep her position above him in the pack.
