Monday Mischief: Sleepover & DNA Test Results Mischief

We're back from our vacation and blogging break! (Pics of vaca coming on Wednesday!) But before we went away, we had a sleepover guest - Reggie!

It was his first time spending the night, and there were a couple of mischief moments, like when he stole Rita's usual spot on the sofa!
"Hee hee! I stole Rita's spot!"
Then later he let her have her spot back, and I thought we were all having a lovely cuddle... but Rita felt otherwise.
"I saw you cuddling him, Momma!"

There was also some plant mischief, when a game of chase took out some succulents. Hurdling plants ain't easy when you're stubby! (They ran that route many times!)

Then there was more mischief when I was trying to photograph the poor mangled succulents, as both pups had to photobomb the shot.
First Reg photobombed, then Rita. Finally I got a dog-free shot!
There was also some more mischief in the mornings, since he likes to get up SO much earlier than we do! But all things considered, it was a fun visit and we look forward to having him come stay with us again! (And I'm sure that will provide more fodder for future Monday Mischief posts!)

In Other Mischief...The Results Are In!
While we were away we got the results of Rita's Wisdom Panel 2.0 DNA test back. We had guessed either some sort of shepherd-beagle-terrier mix, or a true Heinz 57.

Well, she's not just a Heinz 57.

Of her 8 great-grandpawrents, half were Heinz 57s. The report said her other great-grandpawrents were two main breeds, and then the muttliness in her comes from a mix of 5 other potential breeds, each with varying degrees of possibility.

So... here's the mischief. Only 2 of our 3 guesses were right! But I'm not going to let you know the breeds until next week. Wanna try and guess which 2 we had right, and/or guess one of the other breeds we never would have thought of?? Leave your guess in the comments and check back in next week for the results!

Thanks to Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Alfie’s Blog, and My Brown Newfies for hosting Monday Mischief!


  1. The first night we have a guest sleepover is always rough as they don't know our routine, but if they stay for a few days, they start doing what we do. If Reggie comes for more sleepovers and if he can spend a few nights he will do better. He will probably remember the routine too.

  2. Reggie is so adorable! Jeffie is just glad that he is so young and that he and Rita are cousins :-) Ooooh... can hardly wait to find out Rita's test results! I still think she's part GSD. Is their a Chihuahua in her line? A Xolo? Just thinking "Mexican."

  3. I can see the Shepherd/Beagle. I'm really not sure on anything else though. The poor plant mischief reminds me of my weekend. I was out weeding and Laika decided to help by snapping my Blueberry bush in half for me.... Maybe Rita has some Spaniel in her.. I really don't know, can't wait to see the results.

  4. Yikes, that is some mischief! BOL! Way to go!!! Can't wait to find out the results!

  5. Boy that look on Ritas face. Did you wither away? LOL

  6. Mischief abounds over there! The look on Rita's face in that one photo is priceless! You were really in trouble for cuddling another dog.

  7. I'm so excited to find out the results!!

  8. I have proven terrible at these DNA guessing things but welcome back and give my love to the ever adorable Reggie the Fluff!

  9. LOL that was some mischief. No one is allowed to sit my chair. That is one place I don't share. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. Uh-oh. You didn't tell me about the succulents. I know Reggie had fun because it took him two days to rest up and get back to any mischief at our house. He can't wait to see Rita -- it's been too long..

  11. I also see the Shepherd. And some kind of hound. Perhaps Beagle. Maybe a coonhound of sorts.

    Looking forward to hearing the results.

  12. I would guess Shepherd for sure but that stink eye she's giving Reggie says Terrier to me. Love Dolly

  13. Oh we would eat those plants for sure, and dig out all the dirt.

  14. oh rats, I want to know now what she is! Glad Reggie did well on his first sleep over.

  15. Just like kids....acting up when they're together, and being jealous of Mom's attention! It looks like it was fun for all, in spite of the casualties!

    Oh I came over here quickly because I wanted to see those DNA results....can't believe you're making us wait! :) It definitely has to be shepherd - beagle, right? I'm going to guess one of the others is Labrador Retriever.

  16. Two heads make more mischief than one! Sounds like they had a fun time though.

  17. I'm going out on a limb and saying...cocker spaniel...only because I don't think there can possibly be any in her ;)

  18. I'm so sucky at this. I'm going with the GSD/beagle as two of the breeds.


We love comments - even just a smiley face or a LOL will make my day. (Yes, my days are pretty easily made.)
