Call it "Roots: The K9 Conundrum" (apologies to Alex Hailey): I'm very excited to learn about my mysterious mixed-breed dog's ancestry. Yesterday, we got one step closer to that goal.

Last week,my vetcollected a blood sample and sent it off to the lab.

Below is the email I received yesterday from Mars Veterinary, which is running the Wisdom PanelProfessional test on Magnus the mutt. Wisdom Panel Pro is the state-of-the-art genetics test that detects 225+ breeds, types, and varieties and claims to have a 90 percent accuracy rate.

Asyou'll see, the lettergraciously informs me that my dog's blood sample arrived at their laboratory and I can expect the results of their analysiswithin3weeks. Can't hardly wait!
