This should help settle the other day"s Cat v. Dogs debate...A program from NOVA. Lengthy, but essential viewing.

Worth an hour for anyone wth dogs. I`m still stunned that they managed to get from a pretty much wild fox to a more or less domesticated animal in three generations.

I show this video to my students when I`m talking about genetics and evolution. They really like it.

@CynicalGamer-- They later explained that dogs were a huge boost for our hunter/gatherer societies, and that they made us vastly more efficient in killing game. This boost allowed us the breathing room to advance our civilization in terms of farming technology, and eventually helped produce a sedentary lifestyle.

Dogs can be summed up by, "It`s BACON!"

Ok, they lost me at "without dog domestication, civilization just would not have been possible."

Please tell me he extrapolates on this insane comment and explains it without using shock and awe to grab our attention.

Saw this on Netflix last night and decided to post it here. I thought it was fascinating that dogs have learned to read human faces and emotions, and to respond to our gestures.

I`ll watch it but there`s no debate. IAB is an official DOG LOVER`S WEBSITE! Cats, can see your way out!!!

Speaking of cats, is PMARREN banned for life or temporary?

I watched this documentary on netflix. It was absolutely fascinating. It`s interesting to see where our pets come from and how they affect us. I would recomend this documentary to any dog lover.
