The results from Georgie’s DNA-test have come back and they’re both just what we thought, and not at all what we expected! It turns out there’s neither collie nor terrier in our little gremlin, but rather a whole bunch of sighthounds and one unidentifiable doggo 🐾 His great-grandparents are five Whippets, two Greyhounds, and, finally, that one mystery dog who’s a mix of breeds belonging to the sighthound group or the Middle Eastern and African group. As you probably know, that group in turn contains several sighthounds, but also the Basenji and the Rhodesian Ridgeback - though those are probably less likely 🐕 That means that for all intents and purposes, Georgie isn’t a lurcher at all, but a smol longdog. So perhaps the fluffiness of his coat is due to an Irish Wolfhound way back in that family tree, or maybe even an Afghan Hound? 🧐And while we did expect to find plenty of Whippies among his ancestors, the lack of any collie or terrier was a huge surprise! 🤯 What do you think of the results? Are you as surprised as we are?
Heeellllooooo Friday!! 🎉♥️🐾
Phoebe update - she is doing so great, she is incredibly smart and it’s so fun to watch her problem solve. She thoroughly enjoys sleeping with Odin, playing with toys, going on walks, relaxing with the pack in the backyard, and being my constant shadow.
Though she trusts and is very comfortable around me she is still very skittish towards men, and sometimes you see her click into scared defensive mode but she is learning to trust them and gaining confidence along the way. I am so proud of how far she has come, and am excited for where our journey will take us. Happy Friday my friends!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! ♥️🐾

My heart, my boy, I've decided not to race with Baxter again this weekend. He's cool about it 'cause he has a very casual approach to canicross, he can absolutely smash it in a race but does he really want to? I'm not so sure. I think we will still try some more shorter double dog events next season but his performance at Pembrey is actually a great high for him to finish this season on 🤩
