It seemed like an eternity before we received the results, but it was only a bit longer than a month. As I opened the envelope, I became worried. What if I hadn’t scraped enough cells off the inside of Ziggy’s cheek? What if he was such a broad mix of breeds that no breeds showed up on the test?
Fortunately I was not disappointed. Ziggy appears to be largely a poodle, with some English Setter, Golden Retriever and a trace amount of Boston Terrier. I ran to call Maile. “What? No Newfoundland?” We were both surprised and suspicious. But after a week or so, Maile texted me back. She could see the breeds in Ziggy now.
At this point, I’m wondering what this has to do with genealogy. I’m just a sucker for clever marketing, I guess.
