DID I DO THAAAAT?

When I got home the other day, I was welcomed by a yard full of shredded cardboard. I was concerned that a neighbor's package had been left in my yard by accident, but then it dawned on me what it was. It was my barely recognizable DNA test kits:(


They were delivered so quick that I didn't think of it. Kaya and Norman are usually really good about being left home alone, but after 3 days of pouring rain and shortened outings(plus I ran out of knuckle bones to keep them occupied), their instincts took over their good-dog manners and they went to town on the delicious new multi-layered pieces of cardboard. Luckily, I did find one of the kits under the stairs unharmed, but the first was only remnants of its former self:(


So...I contacted Amazon who told me to contact the marketplace seller who told me to contact the post office who told me "too bad" basically. Then I contacted Wisdom Panel directly, told them what happened and they were so nice and sent me a replacement right away for free!


So whether or not my dogs were trying to tell me something about not wanting to find out their origins is just too bad. I am going to no matter what! I found the new box safe and sound in my mailbox today so now all I have to do it send them off!


On a side note...does anyone else's dog like to sit half on one step and half on another?

  1. Is anyone grounded from their chewing fun? I'm curious to find out what their backgrounds are too!

    1. No, but I like to tell them how bad they are and see how fast their tails wag.

  2. uh oh! I know what it's like to look at something and wonder what it used to be. My deaf girl ate a scented candle (think large sized tea light) the other day. It took me a while to figure it out as she was mouthing the remaining foil.

    One of my boys, Forest, sits on the stairs like that! The big exuberant blind puppy Breeze has done it a couple of times but she is usually too busy to sit for long.

    How long till you get the results back?

    1. It's amazing what dogs eat! But mine stick to cardboard, wood and plastic occasionally.

      I haven't sent them off yet, I need to wake up early and swab them before their mouths get contaminated. Then it will take 1 to 2 weeks I think!

  3. They were hoping if they shredded the test you might just think they were human...

    1. Maybe they are some sort of dog-human-cat hybrid.

  4. LOL! They both look semi-bad about what they did. Gosh, I wonder what their DNA contains that they don't want you to know about! ;)

  6. Oh dear! How nice of Wisdom Panel to send you a new one!

    My mom's first dog, Peach, used to sit on the stairs like that too -- that picture really made mom smile because it reminded her so much of Peach :)
