Who’s yo daddy? {GIVEAWAY}

April 14, 2012

I don’t normally post on the weekends…but I’m too excited not to share a little fun we’ve got going on for you all.
Get ready for a CONTEST – my first blog GIVEAWAY! Keep reading….

We’ve gone all Jerry Springer up in here! Jerry! Jerry!Jerry!

C’mon, you know you’ve all seen at least a few minutes of that disaster of a show…at least on a sick day when nothing else is on?!

We’ve got a sweet baby girl, but no baby mama or baby daddy for her..this Mutt of ours calls for an episode of Jerry’sΒ  Paternity Tests Revealed…..

but apparently they don’t do pets…so we turned to the scientists at Wisdom Panel: Canine Genetic Analysis for our answers.

Nick recently turned 27 and as an obvious gift from a loving wife, I got him a pet DNA test – we’ve always joked about doing the test, but was never really something we justified buying randomly…so it was a perfect birthday gift.

I wasn’t totally convinced so I called two different vets to confirm that this test was legit, and they agreed, and it was actually the brand that they both used for their tests as well. I found the test on Amazon for about $30 cheaper – gotta love amazon! The kit arrived in the mail, we swabbed Moxies cheeks for 15 seconds with 2 different giant Q-tips and mailed them back in a pre-paid DNA mail kit Ryan Braun style (too soon?).

Two weeks later…..and we have results! DRUMROLL Please……

PSYCHE! No Way! I’m going to make you guess! Here is the fun part. I see you checking out the blog in numbers, but I would LOVE to hear from the real YOU! Seriously, I love getting comments, questions and feedback! Any questions? What do you want to see more of on the blog? I would love to know!

Moxie’s heritage was traced back to her grandparents breeds, and I want you to guess what she’s made up of! A little melting pot in our house! Can you guess the top 3 breeds?

Here is a clue…her top three are somewhere in this chart of different dogs.

For a chance to win a $30 Crate and Barrel Gift Card…all you have to do is guess Moxies breed! Who doesn’t love a little Crate and Barrel!

In the comment section below..give me a shout-out with the top three breeds you think she is! That simple folks! Winner will be announced on Monday.

Embrace your inner Cesar Millan, and good luck! Have a great weekend everyone.

    This is awesome – I didn’t know you could even do this. I’ve gotta guess Vizsla, Foxhound, and German Shorthaired Pointer. Great looking dog guys!

    Labrador Retriever
    Foxhound (I was highly tempted to say beagle due to the ears, but my instinct is going with the hound!)

    I love all the DYI yourself tutorials. Can we say new mercury glass making queen over here?

    After changing my answer a million times….i think I have it: It is….wait for it…
    Vizsla, Pitbull, Foxhound

    Dre’s best guess is: Vizsla, Pitbull, German Shorthaired Pointer

    He really wanted to say Moxie was a Dachshund, but I wouldn’t let him. He better not be right!!! πŸ™‚

    I love your creative ideas!!!

    Lab, Pit Bull, and Fox Hound… If I’m right, I’m going right to whitefish bay village hall to complain about the pit bull problem over on shoreland… Haha

  14. April 15, 2012 9:51 am

    my guesses: Viszla, Foxhound, Beagle.

    Foxhound, lab and beagle πŸ™‚
    I stalk you to the max because I love all of your ideas, but I need HELP! So I am trying to ween the hubby off of our “White Sox/Baseball” themed office into something more appropriate for the both of us since I will be going back to school. I want to do something more naturesque (tried incorporating his lovely studies of water bugs), but how do I make a small apartment second bedroom easy to use for two folks going back to school, and on a budget???

    I don’t think my original reply went through, and I don’t want to miss out on this giveaway, so don’t mind if this is a double response!

    Moxie is Viszla, pit and lab! Goooooo Viszlas!

    Hey Katie! This is so fun! I love it! We have a Weimaraner at our house which is cousins with the Vizsla which I think is the number one breed of your little one! Then Pitbull and my third guess is a Beagle (that third one was a tough one)!
    1. Vizsla
    3. Beagle
    So fun! I love your blog (so looking forward to buying our first house so I can use all your awesome ideas)!

  19. April 15, 2012 9:27 pm

    Technology finally caught up to me up here in the woods…I’ve said this from day one and must stand firm with the breeds of my fur-niece
    “Congrats Chocolate Lab, Pittbull, Vizsla…you ARE the father!”

    Is Dexter next?
