Fun with DNA
By Astiles on September 22, 2010
We love competitions here at X PRIZE. The photo of this little guy, Gimli, was recently posted in the hall with the question: What two dominant breeds do you think he is?
The DNA test results were announced today, but I thought that I would run the same question by the GLXP community first before giving away the answer. What are the 2 dominant breeds in Gimli? Post in the comments below or @-reply @GLXP on Twitter by 5pm PDT -- I'll send a prize to the closest guess!
5pm and the DNA test results are IN...
Gimli is a dominantly a combination of Chihuahua and Parson Russell Terrier!
Congratulations to @MichaelA_Parker, who was the closest with a guess of Manchester Terrier/Chihuahua. And honorable mentions to everyone who guessed Chihuahua or a Terrier as one of the dominant breeds!
A collection of the guesses:
@hithah: Chihuahua/Mini Pinscher
@MichaelA_Parker: Manchester terrier/chihuahua
@Priesett: Toy Manchester terrier/"Black and Tan" Terrier/Whippet
@jimmic: Dingo/Bat (note: :P )
@tehWKD: Dachsund/Italian Greyhound
@bsbowens: Rat terrier/Mini Pinscher
@Ginavalence: Chihuahua/basset hound
Thanks to everyone that submitted a guess -- we'll try to do this again soon!
