Update: All guesses in! Contest over!
Dr. Becker says that when they adopted Quixote they were told he was a mix of papillon, poodle and Yorkie. But the DNA testing tells a different story. Quixote is a mix of Chihuahua, Yorkie and Pomeranian!
I’ll sort out the winners in the a.m. One random draw from all the people on both posts, and alll Dr. Becker’s books to anyone who guessed right before 7 p.m. PT. (Not sure if anyone did. Christie was close, but not eligible, whether she rocks or not.)
We showed you a picture yesterday of Dr. Becker’s little guy (14 pounds), and asked you to guess what breeds were involved. Dr. Becker has run one of those DNA parentage tests, and knows the result. (So do I, but I’m not telling.)
More help: Quixote’s puppy pic, top right.
I’ll post the results on this tread at the end of the day. Guess away. Don’t forget to see the pic of Don Quixote grown up (right), which I’ve brought up here from the previous post. Yes, same dog!
Update: Carol PW’s comment is my favorite guess so far:
Quixote is obviously the same mix as my Puck – a cross between Much Loved and Very Handsome, with a little Iâ€™m So Special mixed in.
I’ll post the test results at 7 p.m. PT. Get your guesses in!
How about a sweetener? We’ll send a copy of “Why Do Dogs Drink Out of the Toilet?” or “Do Cats Always Land on Their Feet? — signed by BOTH me and Dr. Becker — to one of the guessers, chosen randomly. (Here’s more about the books.)
Three hours to go. Guess. Guess. Guess.
Also: Black Dog says they’ve upgraded the blogging software. We HOPE HOPE HOPE that fixed the IE6 problems for good. If not, complain to Henry. He’s VP for Marketing and Customer Relations at Black Dog.
