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.
We never did DNA on dog, but we think that he was chihuahua, rat terrier, corgi and part dachshund. The dachshund is what may have "done him in", his back was very bad.

We do know that he was "The worlds greatest dog" :lol: 8-) :D

Cool about your doggies !

Corgis tend to have bad backs too. Our son had a corgi who slipped a disc in his back. He managed to recover with only slight nerve damage to his legs, but that is often not the case. They are wonderful dogs, though: so smart and so funny.

You may be right about the corgi part, we had him operated on when he lost being able to walk, but he caught a UTI which caused strocks. :( :( :(

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.
