Dog Breeds

“This piece is all about changing fashions in dog breeds,” Admin says, “but I’ve been thinking about breeding in general, and how – going back maybe ten thousand years – humans selected individual dogs who liked us. So we’ve sort of bred these friends.”

“And how about the dogs?” says Spence. “I think it’s worked the other way, too.”

“Dogs selecting humans who liked them?”

“Exactly. A human who had a good relationship with a dog would be more likely to survive to breeding age.”

“Dogs being good at finding game? And sounding the alarm at night when a predator is near? Maybe we should write a scientific paper.”

“That sounds like not fun.”

Welcome Katie & Tika, leapers extraordinaire.

    Good morning all. Going to go read the article.

    Good Morning All!

    Rebecca, in case you did not see my posting of early this morning, please check your SDD when able.

    Good morning all.

    We feel sorry for the author of that article. We see all those breeds around here. We can name at least two each of them that we see on a regular basis.

    We also saw a funny one yesterday. We parked next to a giant, fancy club-cab pickup, all the bells and whistles, glossy black and tinted windows. When we got out, we could see a little Chihuahua curled up in her snuggy nest, and a sparkly collar on her neck. Just then a very tall and muscular young man in a black leather jacket came along and unlocked the truck door. We had to ask about the little dog – her name was “FiFi” and he was as happy to see her as she was to see him. We love that.

    Meanwhile, we are reading a book where the private eye has an Irish Wolfhound. We think it is pretty obvious that the author has never met a full grown Wolfy. She talks about two adults sitting in the front seat of a car with the Wolfhound stretched out sleeping between them. Not unless they were driving a double wide trailer! (Where was their editor??)

    We hear you, T & G. Barb read a Nicholas Sparks book a few years ago with one error after another about a situation with a litter of pups. Sparks said he had always had dogs, but you could tell he had never had a pregnant dog or whelped a litter of pups. We thought the same thing – where was his editor or resource person. Gah!

    Good morning! It is snowing beautifully here!!!! Although it is a wet snow, so we are now indoors drying out a bit. Mom can’t even tell if there are hunters around because she says her visibility is not good i this snow. What? Also: she says those hunters are bad and mean. Get out! We are hunters, and we aren’t mean, and most of us are not bad either.
    She is now telling us to tell T&G that her very fav breed is the Irish Wolfhound. What?????

    Good Morning!

    We here are reading a wonderful book called “Unsaid”. Very compelling picture of one of our kind on the cover. The author, Neil Abramson is from Westchester, NY…our good friend Wose’s neck of the woods. Must warn you though a box of tissues is best kept nearby.

    Golinka: We don’t envy you the rushing to get ready for the big shew one day earlier than expected (darn that guy who made the error) On top of it the washer breaks! The good news is you bought a new one. The bad news…it won’t be delivered until next week.

    Time for my breakfast!

    Howlers – our Mama loves Wolfhounds too and has always dreamed of having one. We say, why dream of a Mercedes when you already own a Porsche?

    At least OFA knows his way around a dog.

    It’s snowing here too. Ick.

    10:03 am on November 27th, 2012

    We think the vet who wrote that article makes a good point. While each of us probably know a member or two of each of those breeds, it is true that they are nowhere near as popular as they once were. We don’t have any of them on this here blog, do we?
    And here’s another thing: we don’t see all that many of our kind around, except in shelters unfortunately. Yet, there are a lot of us on this here blog. Of course, Snowbella adds to the count considerably, if we can lump all huskies together, rather than just count those of us who speak Russian.

    Mommy was cyber shopping yesterday. Bargains galore! But when she got to Saks website everything slowed to a crawl and then it crashed. We wonder how many others couldn’t handle the load.

  11. OleyHowlers
    10:07 am on November 27th, 2012

    T&G, we asked Mom why she loves IWs. Get this: she says she loves that for those big dudes, every day is a bad hair day! 🙂

    Good morning everyone. Are you all busy this a.m.? The blog seems to have stopped.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    It isn’t snowing here.

    The breeds the vet mentioned in that article…we don’t see them at the vet or dog park.
    My fellow Sibers make a good point…Huskies outnumber everyone else on this blog…coming in second are the Newfs.

  15. Melanie
    11:43 am on November 27th, 2012

    Yes, the Pack is second but they try harder. Try to do what though? This morning they empty the kitchen trash. When I got home from the acupuncturist, they were so excited that one lamp, the phone and the table they were on got flipped over because of two tails.

    Good morning all!

    Good morning. Mom had snow tires put on the car this morning and then hit Target; she’s still laughing. Tidy Cat has Limited Edition Winter Pine “seasonal blend” cat litter for sale. Yes, she bought one because it’s the same price as my regular litter, and she needed more litter, but…Seasonal Blend?

    Dad asked for a copy Les Mis so she stopped at B&N. Somehow neither of them read it in school. I doubt he’ll finish it before the movie comes out. She picked up a copy of Heart of a Killer, which you guys liked.

    Mom’s grandparents had a wonderful collie when she was little. Holly let mom curl up beside her to nap. Her fur was silky soft.

    T&G – we drove under the shadow of a heron on the way home. We’re claiming a good omen for your show and gramps’ glasses and new washing machine and anything else.

    Looking forward to the auction Friday.

    12:00 pm on November 27th, 2012

    For those of you on Facebook, (I can’t get it to come up here) especially those with huskies, look on Zoë’s page. Made me laugh!

    12:07 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Remember the DDonut man? Well, “It’s time to be a momager.” makes me think of him. BBL

  19. OleyHowlers
    12:17 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Bluecat, glad those snow tires helped your mom hit the Target.
    Seasonal cat litter??? We like Buddy’s gourmet blend.

    Speaking of movies, we heard that Daniel Day Lewis is excellent in Lincoln.
    Also, wondering if any of you are planning to see Anna Karenina? It looks good.

  20. OleyHowlers
    12:21 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Why, Melanie, that a good ole Howlfest! Easy to start; neigh on impossible to stop! And btw, when Mom played it, The Hot One joined in. She is still yakking/talking/howling.

  21. dawson
    12:43 pm on November 27th, 2012

    I love seeing many different breeds of dogs walking around the lakes in Minneapolis – Wookie’s relatives are numerous but there are a surprising number of SiberH’s and even a few brave Pugs. I have always loved those Irish Setters.

    I have to get to work at Checkpoint Central. I see I have a couple promising e-mails.

  22. Barb & Maggie
    12:48 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Barb says she wants to see Lincoln. Also a couple of comedies that are coming out for the holidays. Not going to see Les Miz. French history never interested Barb like English and Early American history.

    Barb checked into collie rescue before she decided on an English Shepherd ( which are not English, but an American breed). When she read the descriptions on PetFinder, many of them had been “debarked”. She couldn’t believe they would do that to so many dogs! Awful! But does that mean they “have a free use of their voice”?

    We really liked Heart of a Killer, but if memory serves, it was not part of the Andy Carpenter series, which we love.

    🙂 Checkpoint Update 🙂

    The Anchorage Checkpoint is fully funded! WhoooHooooo! Congratulations to Rose and the Professor.
    Thanks to the Smoochers, Masquers, Mollypop’s Mom, Sammie & Amalia, BearSpiritDog, Rio, Dawson, Wookie, Bluecat and all the Plunderers and Lurkers for making this possible.

    BlueCat – thanks for the good omen. We are really and truly ready for something to go smoothly.

    Still snowing. Still ick. ( sorry to those of you who love this stuff)

    Movies. We haven’t been to a movie theater since “Smoke Signals” came out. And the previous movie we saw in a theater was “True Lies”. Tell ya that we don’t get out much?

  25. Rose
    1:28 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Ahem…I would just like to say on behlaf of the Prof and myself, you guys are the greatest! You have completely humbled the Prof and I by sponsoring a checkpoint in our name. It is a true honor to know such caring, generous two and four-leggeds like youse guys. sniff.

    You really mean a lot!

  26. Masquers
    2:10 pm on November 27th, 2012

    3:06 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Remember the expression “curiosity killed the kat, but satisfaction brought it back”? The suspense is killing me.

  36. bluecat
    3:17 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Howlers & Barb – Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Fields are both excellent in Lincoln. Most of the cast is very good and you’ll see many familiar faces. We recommend it.

  37. bluecat
    3:18 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Yikes. Rio KNOWS???

  38. OleyHowlers

  40. Rose
    3:25 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Aww, Masquers….

    Hopefully, youse guys will be able to see the Prof, CHobbit, and me on the big screen. The Prof isn’t a great big guy either. When he lies, he’s 5’7″.

    There will be some howling going on! I will definitely keep my pockets zipped around Lefty, and Rio, JR will get head bumps and tummies from me.

    RIO! YOU KNOW?!? (whispering) please tell me, pretty please my very best pug friend

  41. OleyHowlers
    3:26 pm on November 27th, 2012

  42. Rose
    3:26 pm on November 27th, 2012

    We might have to pull his tail straight to get the 411 from the pug.

  43. OleyHowlers
    3:28 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Grab that pug and make him squeal!

  44. Melanie
    3:37 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Hmm, but does he know the Top Secret item?

    I’m willing to really up the stakes if he does. I would, of course, check with the Giants to make sure he really does know . .

    4:05 pm on November 27th, 2012

  55. Siber-H
    4:07 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Could the top secret item be a new thriller about baseball from PA?

  56. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:14 pm on November 27th, 2012

    SiberH!…What a great idea for a book. Especially one written by the Charming Mr. Abrahams…snort!

  57. SnowBella

  65. SnowBella
    4:59 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Rio: Checked and responded. Maybe we could hide you in briefcase handcuffed to AJs wrist. We will have to poke air holes in it first. Quick like a bunny! I think they’re getting closer!

  66. dawson
    5:01 pm on November 27th, 2012

  87. SnowBella
    8:23 pm on November 27th, 2012

    Right, correct, c’est vrai. The top secret item will not be revealed until the auction opens. Now, if YSAS and Rio meet up in Rio’s backyard that might be a different story.

    Funded! Full funded? You honor us. Thank you. I love my Giant.

    Staff went to the post office yesterday and mailed packages to Melanie and BStover. Tomorrow she will mail a package to Linda the Lurker.

    I told the postal lady I wanted the least expensive way to track the packages. I just tried to track them and I can’t do it. I got ‘delivery confirmation’ so I guess I will know when they are delivered but nothing else. Sob. Good luck guys.

    Linda the Lurker I will see what I can do with your package to track it. sniff. Damn city post office. I had to wait 20 minutes to do it too. They don’t make me wait in my little town in North Dakota. Of course they are dropping our hours to TWO HOURS A DAY. huh. So that is the down side. My neighbors who both work never get to the local post office at all. Sniff.

    My oh my – we are so glad that we are busier than a traffic cop at a bumper car rally – that way we don’t even have time to fret about the secret item. The way time is speeding by, we will be at Friday night in about 6 more minutes.

    Only one more full day before we have to leave for the show. And we have soooooooo many things to do.

    But if Basil and Sage stay still long enough, we will ask them to send a hypnotising eye photo to Rio and try to get the truth out of that little pug.
