I confess... I bought the DNA test for Misa.  They received it today.

I have heard of these before. Some of the clients at my job have done them.
Some of them have found out their dog wasn't as pure breed as they were let on.
No matter what they still loved their dog but it was just a bit of a shock  :-*

My Misa is far from being a pure anything.  My curiosity just got the better of me one day, and I ordered the test.  Silly7 

Misa is considered a Street Dog.  She lived in a very remote desert area for the first 3-ish years of her life.  No human contact.  I'm just curious what all is in her "mix."  Also, they test for several possible health issues.

The company supplied a return box... with tracking.  It stayed in my city for 5 business days.  Kinda wondering what happened.  We don't have snow or extreme cold.  Hope the saliva sample arrived safely at its destination.   If it didn't...guess I will find out.
