Sort of off topic (and not pertinent to your final question), but you brought it up!! I had our mix, Hannah-banana DNA tested with the MARS Wisdom Panel and now, when people see her and ask me, "What breed is she?" instead of saying she's a Canardly, I can say she's Boxer, Cocker Spaniel, Great Pyrenees, Labrador, Miniature Poodle and Viszla!!! You should see their jaws drop!!TheQueen and ProblemChild are obvious mutts, which stinks not knowing their parents and so on... TheFiance understands my frustration and any time we see one of the advertisements for DNA testing on dogs, it is pointed out to me excitedly. (it would be nice to know everything they are, but that doesn't really help along the lines of genetic problems, etc.)
I agree that it really didn't help me with any genetic issues, but at 10 years old, Hannah is as healthy as they come, so I'm not worried about genetics with her anymore... And it was fun to find out the definite breeds that make up a one-of-a-kind dog!
