Lightbulb DNA results are in!

We got the results this weekend and it's funny he's neither of the things we thought!

He's not Havanese at all! Which makes me sad because now I feel weird being in this forum. Ha.

The results say he's a mix of Bichon, Maltese, Miniature Poodle and Keeshond! The last one was a shocker!

Here's the certification we received.

Yeah, I can see all of those except the Keeshond! Luna is a bichon/poodle mix, so we're obviously a fan of that combination. She's a fantastic pet, wonderful temperament, we would get another just like her if we could be sure to do it without supporting puppy mills.

But of course, you know you have a great dog already. DNA testing does nothing to change that.

From my brief time of this forum, I think it is safe to say all are welcome as long as you love the canine member of your family, regardless of breed. Kipper is a great dog and loved, that's what matters!

Agreed.

Also, bichons and maltese are part of the same family as havanese, it's always possible he has havanese DNA but it was close enough to bichon and maltese that it fooled the test.

I don't care what the Kipster is, he is still mi amigo and I hope he sticks around on this Forum.

Yeah, I thought of that. But of course I told my husband that since we've been telling people we have a Havanese and even have a little silhouette portrait of one in our living room, we're gonna have to actually get one now!

Well, Bichons and Maltis are close relatives, and you are ALWAYS welcome here anyway!

Thank you Besides, where would I find a Maltichon/Poodle/Keeshond mix forum? Hahaha.

I still can't get over the Keeshond bit. The poodle was a a bit of a surprise but not too much; the hair on top of his head gets a little kinky and I've always said it looked poodle-like.
