This is an interesting report on some new discoveries about dogs based on some new DNA research and some more understandable studies. Dogs seem to have a better sense of humans and what they want than chimps, for example. And--I hesitate--it just may well be the case that dogs have not evolved from wolves, although the study only implies this. The point is my dogs like me, even that willful SOB Irish Wolfhound I once had, but then, he was Irish. That island breeds some valiant creatures! I wonder what it would be like to have a Hungarian Komondor? Oh, well, never mind. Jonah Goldberg at NRO brought this article to my attention.
