It took a really long time to get the results of the test, but yesterday we finally went to visit Dr. Vodraska, and she told us all about what the test said. First of all, it turns out that I do not have any chihuahua in me at all! Not a single drop! We were totally shocked to learn this. What I do have is mainly two breeds. One of these is RAT TERRIER, and the other is MINIATURE POODLE! Okay, the terrier part is what we expected, but POODLE??? Give me a break!

With all these breeds in my background, the nice people at Royal Canin® predicted that I would be between 19 and 33 pounds in size. Hahahaha! I only weigh 6 pounds! But Dr. Vodraska said I was the perfect weight, and she would never want to see me weigh 19 pounds!
I told Mom that if she ever cut my hair to look like one of those silly poodles, I would have to bite her on the neck. But Mom said my hair was too short and wiry to be groomed that way. And I guess I have to admit that poodles with regular haircuts don't look nearly as ridiculous as those poodles in dog shows. My sister Dorrie wrote a blog entry all about poodles. It seems like the kind of poodles I should have in my background are toy poodles or teacup poodles because they are more my size than miniature poodles. But that is one of the weird things about this test. All of my ancestors were bigger than I am. Mom thinks this might mean that I was the runt of the litter. Well, if I'm going to be a runt, I'm going to be a feisty one!

quite a bit like me, especially in the ears and head.

So that's it. That's the real me, deep down inside, where my DNA lives. I kind of wish that I had a little bulldog or great dane in me, but I guess you can't have everything!
