This is BeAnne Duvet Soufflé Princess Shaznay du Mezzanine.
The light of my life.
We bought her from FreeAds in 2006 – she was 12 weeks when she came to us masquerading as a rottweiler.
We knew BeAnne would have a rough coat There were hints even at a very early age.
The fur appeared.
The attitude appeared.
And then more fur appeared.
BeAnne was sold to us as a Patterdale terrier with Gould and Nuttall lines, or something – I fail to remember but I was meant to be impressed so I nodded hopefully and looked vaguely intelligent at the time.
She is definitely a Patterdale terrier – which is a mix of working terriers.
Apparently her father is a certain Jack who is at Durham Kennels. Suffice it to say, neither exist according to my searching.
Anywho, I don’t care who BeAnne is, though I will admit to having an interest in the breeds involved that make up such a special little girl.
So, for my birthday, I was given a DNA kit. You take a mouth swab and send it off to be analysed.
Where to purchase – Amazon.co.uk
The first one failed – I was happily thinking all her royal blood had probably broken their computer!
So, you can perhaps imagine my surprise at the results!
So that’s a Russell Terrier, Yorkie with a hint of Border! A new breed – the exclusive, and highly sought after, Russellshire Terrier!
Mwahahahaha! Brilliant. I am thrilled. This explains everything! I am sorely tempted to go and look for a bow now, for the hair!
