… and he’s a real mix. How real? Here’s the breakdown:
28% Miniature Schnauzer
16% Miniature Poodle
10% Pembroke Welsh Corgi
9% American Eskimo Dog
8% Bichon Frise
5% Chow Chow
4% Catahoula Leopard Dog
4% Rat Terrier
We don’t need a DNA test to tell us that our recently rescued pup Figgis Zlotsky Janairo is a fun and loving member of our family, but we did one anyway in case it can help tell us more about what to expect from our now-9-month-old.
We’re waiting on the results. We’re thinking he could be a Papillon-Chihuahua mix.
What do you think?
We rescued Vesta when she was 7 years old in 2009. She never liked having her photograph taken (she often ducked her head or walked away when a camera came out), so this is a rare portrait of her sitting calmly. We named her Vesta, the Roman goddess of hearth, home and family, for she was the warm center of our home life. Though we most often called her “Vesta,” and we didn’t correct people when they called her “Vespa,” we also called her “Vester,” “Vestela,” “Vesta-girl,” “Wag-a-muffin,” “Good girl,” “Little One,” “Wagster,” and many more. And though these words can’t say enough, she was a good dog, a close companion, and loving friend.
This was taken by the stepson.
Anyway, ZZ died a few months shy of his 19th birthday, about six months after the photo of him was taken.
I’ve just been thinking about the little guy today and missing him.
