About a week ago, I adopted a puppy, who eventually came to be known as Kate.
She's likely a Spanador -- part Labrador Retriever, part Cocker Spaniel. As with all domesticated dogs, she's descended from the gray wolf, so she definitely has badass flowing through her veins.
I was a bit disappointed to learn that the common ancestor to all housecats is a wildcat that looks like a housecat, but with pointy ears -- the African Wildcat.
