Baby Pics

Bark Magazine, had a great article, in this winter's issue, on mapping the genetic relationships between physical traits in dogs.
All puppies from Chihuahuas to Great Danes look very similar at birth.
Test yourself,  match up the letter of the photo with the number/breed of dog.

  1. Okay I have had 4 out of the 8 of these dogs and I am not even close to sure of any of them...

    Obviously I want to say that G is the Weim because of the color but Neo Mastiffs are also that color and Great Danes come in that color too..So hmmm.

    Then the boxer and the mastiff could be the same color aslo.. Even though I have had 4 of these dogs, I have never had any these young so I am not sure at all.

    I will be very interested to see the answers tomorrow.

    1. Boxer- H
    2. Chi- A
    3. Dane- C
    4. Lab- E
    5. Mastiff- B
    6. Shih Tzu- F
    7 Swiss Shep- D
    8. Weim- G

  8. I think I figured most of them out. It was hard finding the Shih Tzu and I don't know what a Swiss Shepherd is... I may have been living under a rock but I didn't know about Bark Magazine. I'll have to look into it!

  9. Ha ha! What a cool idea! I think we know all of them but two. We're not sure what a Swiss Shepherd is, so we're off to Google that!

  17. Firstly, I just want to say that your 1st hike of the year looked pawsitively PAWSOME! I wish I coulda gone, too.

    And my mom already took this test when we got our Bark magazine so we won't cheat by pretending we don't know. It's kinda hard, though, huh? But I was pretty proud of her. She got all but a couple right. I, of course, got them ALL right.

  25. I need to go find my glasses. I can't tell any of them apart. Maybe I am just bitter because I don't have any baby pictures since I was 3 when I was adopted. No fair!

    Your pal, Pip

  26. The only thing I have to go by is color - I honestly cannot tell those puppies apart otherwise!

    The only one I'm even a little bit confident about is the Weimaraner... beyond that, I'm stumped.

  27. Just for the record Wyatt, greyhound pups look just like that. :o)))

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow! What an intriguing first visit to your blog! New born puppies do look so much alike; so do new born humans if they're not yours. That's why they put those low-jack thingies on them. [Well, that and the propensity of some people to steal things that don't belong to them.]

    Our guesses:

    1. Boxer - D
    2. Chihuahua - A
    3. Great Danes - B
    4. Lab - E
    5. Mastiff - H
    6. Shih Tzu - F
    7. Swiss Shepherd - C
    8. Weimaraner - G

  31. Every time Mom takes a basket of new Scottie puppies to our Vet to get their dewclaws removed, someone always asks her if they are Labs!! And we snicker....but we didn't do much better.
