"Who's your daddy?"

Are any of you pups out there tormented by this question?

Do you wonder whether your old man was the German Shepherd dropping off the milk, or maybe the Golden Retriever delivering the mail, or could he have been a former Westminster Dog Show winner?

If only there were a way to tell what blood flows through your veins.

Well, mutts, you need to wait no more. Mars Veterinary has a new product called the Wisdom Panel MX, it's a DNA test for mixed breeds.

Every Dog Has A Tale:
That's why Mars Veterinary created Wisdom PanelTM MX Mixed-Breed Analysis, the gold standard in mixed-breed genetic identification for dogs.

Over 38 million people own a mixed-breed dog. One simple dog DNA test at your veterinarian's office reveals the untold story of its ancestry.

Separate FACT From FICTION:

With Wisdom Panel MX, mixed-breed dogs will receive the most reliable DNA breed test available.

* Blood-based sampling, scientifically proven to provide the highest quality DNA analysis
* Detecting 157 different AKC breeds (incl. 4 Foundation Breeds) and counting
* Proprietary algorithm providing 90% accuracy
* Backed by a decade of peer-reviewed veterinarian science research on dog genetics
* Detailed report illustrating your dog's heritage,
revealing breed traits and characteristics

Lisa and I have long wondered what breeds flow through Bo's and Copper's body. Sure we tell everybody we know what breeds we think' they are, but truth be told, we're not 100% certain. Now we have a chance to know.

The process is simple enough. Order the Wisdom Panel MX test and you'll receive a package with a vial and a postage paid box to return it in. You will need your vet to pull a sample of blood from your favorite mixed breed and then you send it in.

When we received our package, we just waited until their regularly scheduled appointment (last week) to have their blood drawn. Now it's just a waiting game for the results to come back.

What a cool product, right? Well, Mars Veterinary is going to give our awesome Dogster members a chance to win a free kit. In fact, three kits will be given away, and it's simple to win.

See the pictures associated with this post? Tell us in the comments area what breeds you think make up that adorable dog (yes it's the same dog in all three pix). The three Dogsters who guess correctly, or come closest, will win a kit. If there are any ties I will choose the winner at random from the correct entries.

I think this would be a fabulous gift to give to the dog lover in your life for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or even Festivus.

In case you don't win, the great folks from Mars Veterinary are offering up a discount only for Dogster members. If you order before Christmas you'll receive a $10 discount by entering promo DOGSTER10.

Contest starts today and runs through Monday, December 8th.

It's simple and fun...guess away!!
