It's BJ.  In my last post I mentioned mom having my DNA analyzed and forgot to tell you what it said.  The results were weird.  They give you the dominant breeds and the percentage in you and they give a write up of the characteristics of the breeds.

Now, take a look at me.  I'm 15" tall, 20 lbs,, and my coloring is cream and apricot.  The report said I am equal parts Bichon Frise, Cairn Terrier, and Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  (Ha)

I can see the Bichon: my face, my curly hair on my head.

Cairn Terrier

I can see the Carin: my coloring, and my terrier personality.
Chesapeake Bay Retriever

But a Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  They are big, tall, short haired dogs,

Okay, so somewhere in my gene pool is a taller dog because I am taller than a Bichon and Carin.  But come on, I can't be 33% CBR.  My bone structure is not that big and strong, the texture of my hair is soft and fluffy (when I'm brushed out).  I have a sweet little face and not at all like the retriever.  PLUS, I don't like swimming.  I would never go near water voluntarily.

Frankly, I think I'm part Bichon and part jack Russell.  And, Sweetness personified (VBP).  Mom agrees.


  1. This is so interesting, BJ! Personally, I think you're much better looking than those "model dogs."

  2. I'm with you BJ...Bichon and Cairn for sure, but Chessie? That's a tough one to believe...No matter, it's the sum of the parts that matters, and with you they add up to one sweet cute dog

    1. Thank you. You made me blush. xxxooo

  3. Doesn't matter what gene's you have, you look as beautiful as ever to me.

  4. I don't see the Chesapeake either. But the other two? Definitely. Actually, I'm with Soggibottom there.

  5. You could always travel dhl :-) Ah, your a little cutie... x x x
