A Brief History of Dogs

David Howe tells us how wolves became domesticated dogs.

From TED:

Since their emergence over 200,000 years ago, modern humans have established communities all over the planet. But they didn’t do it alone. Whatever corner of the globe you find humans in today, you’re likely to find another species as well: dogs. So how did one of our oldest rivals, the wolf, evolve into man’s best friend? David Ian Howe traces the history of humanity’s first domesticated animal. [Directed by Cabong Studios, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Vadeco Schettini].

Meet five large men and the little dogs they love

Eric, Steve, Dax, Sean, and Nate are over six feet tall yet the dogs they chose and love barely reach their ankles.

In this short CBC documentary we see how much these little dogs mean to these men, and that size really doesn’t matter.

I have welcomed 4 different Labrador Retrievers into my life. Our personalities matched and I had always pictured myself having one. Circumstances recently lead to me adopting a Cairn Terrier. Skye may be small but she has a large personality and I don’t think she’s ever recognized herself in a mirror.  I now understand the appeal of smaller dogs.
