Benson's DNA - you'll never guess !!!!!
« on: December 28, 2015, 15:07:47 PM »
My son gave my a DNA TEST for Benson -  for my birthday

We would never have guessed ..... In fact I asked them if they had got it muddled up with someone else's !!!!!  They have replied with a full explanation

Wanna guess..?......





What have others' experience been with having this done ?

Love
Christine

I did a test for Maggie May and believe it to be accurate in her case.....Staffy X Bedlington.....I was impressed that apart from the swabs, the only info I gave them was her weight and age.

I'd say collie x scruffy Jrt.

I quite like the fact I don't really know what Lexies mix is I like to think she's a border terrier cross

Really tricky one, especially as I don't know how big perky Mr Benson is. Obviously a lot of terrier. So a straightforward guess would be Jack Russell/border collie or even Westie/border collie. But the black and white colour also makes me wonder if it's a Tibetan terrier that is bringing the colour rather than the collie. And the big soulful eyes, flippy ears and the curvy moustache even have a bit of a shih tzu look.  Dunno really but I've loved guessing. Can we have an answer soon please before this entire household explodes with curiousity?  :laugh:

Absolutely astounding! I'm not surprised you queried it - where did those lovely shaggy eyebrows come from then? But it's clearly an accurate analysis.  It just shows that dogs will never lose the power to surprise - but whatever they look like, they are always completely their own person! And what a great gift. I am now thinking of buying the same for a good friend's 60th - or should I say, for her dog!? Thanks for putting the idea in my head.
