Dogs on TV!

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/dog/wallpaper2_small.jpg

Last night I watched this show on Nature called Dogs Who Changed the World. Number of interviews with me? ZERO? Obviously a fraud. But the second half is on tonight so we'll see what they have to say about me. It has some interesting stuff like an interview with this Swedish dude who thinks all dogs originated in East Asia (no wonder I have so many friends in Singapore and Malaysia!) And the lame humans needed us to populate arctic areas. And to domesticate other animals like sheeps and goats. So we pretty much have kept the human race going. Wait--is that a good thing?

Here's a cool map where you can see where the oldest dog breeds are from. There's no corgador but that's because the map is the oldest breeds, not the ALL TIME GREATEST.

Um, where are the pugs?!? We are like, so old, so where are we?

I can't believe they would overlook both the corgador and the pug, Wally. I don't think these people are very reputable ;)

About the domestication of wolves: My Dad's theory is that we dogs were pretty smart and figured out that it was better to have humans search for our food and treat us nice than have to live out in the cold and worry where the next meal was coming from. He always looks at us and says "You guys are very good at what you do!!

Wally, as for the cake at the wedding -- your fantasy was right on. There were three cakes -- one at the rehearsal dinner the night before and two at the wedding. The second one at the wedding was chocolate, though, so not good for our kind.

We're not among the ancient breeds either, but here we are!!!

There's no Chinese Crested on there either - but then again, it wasn't the Most Masculine Dogs map, you know....
