python - How does the order of mixins affect derived classes?

Say, I have the following mixins that overlaps with each other by touching dispatch():

class FooMixin(object):
    def dispatch(self, *args, **kwargs):
        # perform check A
        ...
        return super(FooMixin, self).dispatch(*args, **kwargs)

class BarMixin(object):
    def dispatch(self, *args, **kwargs):
        # perform check B
        ...
        return super(FooMixin, self).dispatch(*args, **kwargs)

If I want my view to go through the order, check A -> check B, should my code be MyView(FooMixin, BarMixin, View) or MyView(BarMixin, FooMixin, View)?

And why do we always put View or its subclasses after mixins? (I have noticed this from reading the source code of the django generic views, but I don't know the rationale behind it, if any)
