hello,

I have a question regarding genetics.

I was watching the show "Medicine Ball" tonite and was wondering about
something.  Two dwarves had a child, and the father said that there was
a one-in-four chance of the child being non-dwarf.  But if the parents
are dwarves, does that not mean that they are both homozygous recessive?
wouldn't this mean that there is no chance of the child being a non-dwarf?

I'm only a sophmore in college, so I might just be undereducated on the
subject.

Very curious,
