  1. I'd seen that before - the five Goldens in ghost costumes is funny.
    God made a dog all right. And everything else...

    1. not really. If dogs were created by anyone it was by man.

      Dogs are a domesticated animal, and all domesticated animals were derived from an wild ancestor in the dog's case the gray wolf. This process is done through artificial selection of random mutations (better known as breeding) over a long period of time.

    2. Have you read about the research to domesticate foxes. Sad that they're even doing it, but the findings found them much more quickly domesticated than wolves.

    5. I've read a bit about the works of a Russian scientist named Dmitry Konstantinovich Belyaev a few years ago.

      I'm not sure if the foxes had a higher mutation rate (figured they'd be about the same), but unlike wolves when they evolved into dogs, Belyaev knew what he was doing and spent his whole career to tame the fox down to its dna.

  2. And then God wanted to teach his wide eyed children humility. So God made a cat. :-D

  6. Oh Dogs who fart and don't even move after you place your nose under your shirt since the foul stench of death is so unbearable. They look at you and you know they are thinking..."What??" This is great! Do cats fart?

  7. That's a plus on the cat side of the ledger. It's not quite so aromatic:)
