Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. First we want to make sure you all have your paws crossed for our good friend Goose.

Crossed Paws for Goose

He is very sick and has spent this whole weekend at the vets.  Please visit Murphy & Stanley’s blog to see how you can help Goose and his Mom out.

Now on to our post for today. You all know that we are both of unknown heritage and every time someone asks our pawrents what kind of dogs we are they shrug their shoulders and say, “We don’t really know”. Well they decided to do something about that and ordered these things called  Wisdom Panel 2.0 from Amazon (there are other places that sell them too).

Of course mom made us pose with the boxes first.

I'm pretty smart already I don't understand why mom and dad think we need more wisdom.

Walter I'm a little nervous about this wisdom thing.

There isn’t much inside the box. Just some instructions with stickers and a couple of brushy things.

Next thing we know mom has lured us to the bedroom and one by one she tortures us with those brushy things.

Mom is pretty good at using a head lock. She stuck that brushy thing between our cheek and gum and had to rub it back and forth for a few seconds.

Millie's turn for the torture.

We each had to have this done with the two swabs that came with the kits. Okay if we have to tell the truth it really was nothing. Those brush thingys were very soft and we were done before we knew it.

The box the kits come in are very handy and have these two holes in them to put the swabs in. You let them dry for a few seconds and then put them back in the plastic sleeve they came in. You use the same blue box to seal it all up and put the mailing label on.

Mom had to be very careful not to mix up our kits. She put them in the mail and then she went online to the Wisdom Panel site to register our kits. You can keep track of the progress of your kits on their site. It took about two weeks for the kits to arrive at their facility (we think they were sent by pony express), then about two more weeks before we got our results.

So what do you think we learned about who we really are? You will have to wait another day or two to find out. We will say that there were a couple of surprises but there were some things about each of us that we had already guessed as well so stay tuned.
