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

  2. Wyatt! I'm stumped! I kind of new how similar different breeds of puppies looked, but I am shocked at how hard it is to guesss the breed!

  3. Boxer=H
    Great Dane=E
    Shih Zu=C
    Swiss Shep=F

    Oh my gosh, dat was hard!


  4. Looks fun... getting our pad and paper to test our skills.

  5. Ok, It took me some time to find a pen and paper. The way I did it was the colour of the dog!!!
    can't wait to see the answers, see yea tomorrow

  6. That is really hard - Mom says they all look the same to her. We aren't even going to venture a guess. But we will be back to check the answers:)

  7. 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!

    Elyse (and Riley)

  8. 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!


  9. What cute puppy pics!
    I bet you got them all right!
    Thanks for the reminder about PBU, we need to send our puppy pics over there!

  10. nothing better than puppy breath

  11. OoH Mom said this is hard, dey all is so cute too!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  12. We've written down our guesses; but it was very hard. Whatever the breed, the babies are all adorable!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  13. We love Bark Magazine too...and we also only got two right :/

  14. That's a hard test!! The babies look so much alike when born...they are all so sweet!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  15. Thank you so much for the shout out!

    We never realized how much puppies look alike.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  16. 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.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  17. Wow! This is tough! Baby puppies do look very similar no matter what breed they are!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  18. What?????? Where is the dachshund??? No fair.

  19. Ok... so I'll quit Pouting and vote
    I think # 6 is one of dem Weiner Rammers. You got buns to go with that???

  20. Awwww the puppies are so cute! Our Mama has baby pictures of Lily and she will send them. But Trixie didn't meet our mama until she was a big dog already!

  21. Very interesting! I can't wait to see the answers tomorrow.

  22. And they all look like little guinea pigs!

  23. All the puppies are soooo adorable!
    I guess i know some of them... but it will be better to wait for your answers!
    Kisses and hugs

  24. 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

  25. 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.

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

  27. 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

  28. Phew..this is a tuffie paws one! We will have to have a thiink over our breakie.

    we definately know there isn't an airedale there. Thats about it so far! lol

  29. Yeah, these Airedales looked just like black slimeys.......could have been anything!

  30. 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.
