Last year for Christmas, Meg's mom gave us a Doggie DNA kit. Meg, ever the scientist, was thrilled. You see, Gypsy is truly a mutt's mutt. She really doesn't look like anything in particular. So, we dutifully swabbed each of Gypsy's cheeks, dried the samples, and returned them to the "lab".
I should mention that Gypsy weighs 36 pounds. A very svelte 36 pounds.
A few weeks later, much to our surprise, we received the following certificate. Look very carefully at the last line.

(Okay to be fair, we didn't even adopt Maisey until a few months later....)
Well, he just laughed and laughed.
In case you've never met Gypsy in person, here's a photo of her laying next to a FULLY GROWN PIT BULL.
