Ollie: Supermutt Extraordinaire!
Genetic Breed Result
EMBARK SUPERMUTT ANALYSIS
What’s in that Supermutt? There may be small amounts of DNA from this distant ancestor:
Embark guessed his coat color, his markings, and even his weight. The report also shares relatives or dogs that are closely related to him (okay not that closely)….there is a lot of extras (the report is 29 pages long). If anyone is that interested here is the link to the full report. Kudos to those who picked poodle and lhasa and shih tzu. I also thought bichon due to his puff hair at the top of his head. He is really a mix isn’t he?
Drum roll yet again…..
BERNIE’S BREED BY PERCENTAGE
Exciting news, the results are in! Here’s what makes Bernie so unique. Using the data generated from Bernie’s DNA, our sophisticated computer algorithm performed over 17 million calculations! What you see here is Bernie’s ancestry by percentage.
|Basset Hound||0.375||37.5% Basset Hound|
|Shih Tzu||0.25||25.0% Shih Tzu|
|Breed Group(s)||0.375||37.5% Breed Group(s) Terrier|
Here is her whole report if you are interested! Enjoy!
So who do I recommend? I like Wisdom for the interactive infomation regarding Bernie herself (ears, color etc.) but I dont think the breed trait is as accurate as Embark. Also Embark allows uploading of your dogs photo and the ability to chat with other dog owners with dogs closely related and so on. Embark has a lot of data gathering even after the results as well. Wisdom is fine but really not as robust as Embark. I don’t regret buying both kits though!
Again I think I am going to have to get a kit from Embark for Bernie in order to compare. Embark definitely got Ollie pretty correct I think (just shocked there is no King Charles or Spaniel but there is Cocker soooo)….I am still tempted on buying one for Gretchen as well. I may be a tiny bit obsessed with my dogs. Ha! I think Embark wins overall but Wisdom wasn’t horrible at all. So just pick the one that costs the least! Unless you are crazy like me!
I recommend doing this if you have a mixed breed you aren’t sure what it is. Or if you just want to get all geeky about your dogs no matter the breeds. Either works!!
I have a lesson with Remus tomorrow afternoon and then I am heading up to VA to see my dad on Friday. So not much horsey time after tomorrow! 😦 So sad. Though I think we have rain for the next 30 days or some such shit…so maybe not so sad!! Happy upcoming weekend to all! See you all when I return though I may get a quick blog post here and there in the next week. Have fun, behave and don’t call me for bail money (Emily this is for you especially hahahahha)
