Charlie was not happy that my boyfriend took our other dog to work with him today. We had a chat about it... he was inconsolable.

Whew!! LOL. Sounds like both of you had a full day. BTW, he's adorable. Does he have some spaniel in him?


u/bag-o-frogs 14d ago

no clue!! we guess he is mostly border collie based on personality and size & stuff but other than that we dont know


u/Jet_Threat_ 14d ago

Definitely part lab or golden retriever!! (Most lab and Golden mixes are black. Often with a white star on chest). He reminds me of my family’s Lab/Golden/Newfie mix!


u/bag-o-frogs 14d ago

I think you're probably right! those combos are what we've been suggested the most since we got him, but ya just never know


u/Jet_Threat_ 14d ago

Ever thought about doing a DNA test to find out? Embark is the best, followed by Wisdom Panel. Once you order it, you could always post his pics over at r/DoggyDNA for people to guess, then update us with his results! He seems like a great dog, I love him already!


u/bag-o-frogs 14d ago

thank you, maybe we'll try those!! we haven't bothered cuz we just know he is a very good boy and that's what matters most :')

Those DNA companies will let you know if he’s a good boy. It’s very strange — there’s never been a bad boy in the history of DNA technology. Very mysterious.


u/Jet_Threat_ 13d ago

Y’know, I never noticed that before. Very mysterious indeed. Although, I found this boy on Embark. Is he still considered a good boy?

Good wild boy!

My favorite game when going to the dog park! Guessing the mixes in a dog. And I love learning about dogs I am not familiar with. Good times.


u/Jet_Threat_ 13d ago

Same! Are you a member of r/DoggyDNA? That sub is how I got so good at guessing in real life. I’ll just casually walk by people who have a dog and ask “Rottweiler Husky mix?” and usually they’re pretty surprised (but proud of their pup at the same time) and say “yeah!” It’s really fun. Except one time I asked if a dog was a chow chow mix and the owner seemed pretty miffed and replied “he’s a Eurasier” and I was like “oh sorry wow he’s beautiful!” But in the back of my mind I was thinking don’t Eurasiers have chow in them? so I wasn’t fully wrong
