Calling Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr! — Bentley’s DNA Results

Monday Morning: A Bird’s and Dog’s Eye View

Bentley: Hey Leo, guess what? I’m not a Maltipoo at all!

Leo: A what?

Bentley: A Maltipoo, remember? A mixture of a Poodle and a Maltese. I had my DNA tested and I’m something else altogether.

Leo: Well, what are you, then?

Bentley: I’m 76.1% Poodle, 19.9% Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and 4% Cocker Spaniel.

Leo: What does that make you?

Bentley: A Cavapoo!

Leo: Sounds like a mix of Poodle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. But what about the 4% Cocker Spaniel?

Bentley: Hmmmm, dunno. Maybe you need more than 4% to qualify?

Leo: I suppose because you’re now descended from a king, I’ll have to treat you royally.

Bentley: Nonsense. I’m still the same old Bentley. Well, young Leo. Why not get your DNA done?

Leo: No need. I’m perfectly content being a macaw.
