The wait has ended! Tuesday the long awaited DNA test results came in the mail. But, before I spill the beans, I would like to share some of the breeds that some people thought might be in Cura's make-up. All of the guesses come from people who have frequent contact with Cura so they have quite a bit more to go on than just pictures. Unfortunately, there were no guesses from anyone who was only going by the pictures -- or maybe I should say fortunately, because you would have been at a SERIOUS disadvantage given the results of the tests.
Doberman Pincher was also put forward as a possibility -- you can't tell from the pictures, but Cura has a brown undertone to her Black fur -- especially on her legs (hey, and notice that the above shown Plott has a kind of Black and Tan coat -- how deliciously CELTIC is THAT!?). Another suggestion was a Boxer -- again with the whole Black and Tan motif combined with Cura's tendancy to use her front paws when playing/wrestling (no, she doesn't wrestle with me). Surprise, surprise -- neither of these were identified by the DNA test either!
SO WHAT IS CURA, you ask!? Well, as annoying as it may be, I have it on good authority of someone who has managed to have a successful blog that brevity is the key -- so, tune in later for Cura's ACTUAL results!
Luv to you -- official, unofficial and frequent, AND occasional visitors ALL!
Check back soon! You will be amazed at the way genetics can blend!
