The older two are half chihuahua, but are not small. They got slightly shorter ears and slightly longer legs from that side of their family, but otherwise look like longhaired dachshunds.

The youngest is half Eskimo spitz. She looks like a golden fox.
OOOOh I need to see pictures of the youngest, she sounds so cute !

And so pleased re your news re your eyesight, what an incredible relief for you !

I had my DNA tested before 23 and Me. I have not checked the new results they notified me of. But I did pat myself on the back-- LOL-- because I had found relatives everywhere they said my bloodline came from. I also knew about all but 2 of the "new relatives" they connected me with. I didn't have all the details. I was glad to get those, but I knew their parents or children, ie, where they belonged on my tree. But I had been doing research over 50 years.

I'm glad you felt they were accurate. I am very leery ....."Congrats, you are Danish and Japanese !" It just feels as you are paying they want to make you as exotic as possible.

Rinty, this is the youngest dog. Sunlight is making her colors less rich, but she's creamy on the front, gold on the back. She is aptly named Marigold, although not after the baby in Downton Abbey. :)

Thanks for the good wishes about my eyesight. It was such a relief to get a smile out of the doctor!
