    I know some people who did it with surprising results. At that time - maybe a year and a half ago - I think it was $60. It's not important enough to me to spend that kind of money.

    I like the Judge Judy (maybe it was the People's Court?) case where a lady bought an advertised "teacup chihuahua" for a bunch of money, and the dog ended up be like 20 lbs! She paid the $ to get the DNA and the dog had NO chihuahua in him at all. Needless to say, she got all her $ back including the cost of the DNA test.

    I've thought about doing it for both my dogs. Quincy is a Rottie, but a rescue. Sometimes I wonder if he's a purebred or not, because he doesn't have the typical blocky conformation. He's tall and sinewy (good word, huh? ;D ) Or if he's a purebred, he's way off type.

    Millie has definite Border Collie, but she's solid black. She has black on her tongue, so I wonder if some ChowChow in there (even though other breeds can have black tongues)

    As far as the money, I've pissed away more than that on stupider stuff. :laugh:

    I guess even if I was put in the situation where the dog I got, was supposed to be something different, I'd be way too attached to return it. So no, I wouldn't do it. Then again, I don't show my dogs or anything like that.

    I've seen kits for around 30 or 40...I sure wouldn't spend 100!
