Dear Dogwise Customer,
Many of you were likely glued to your TV set last Sunday for the PBS special Dogs That Changed the World,
part of their Nature series. If you didn't catch it, you are in luck in that
there is another installment set for this coming Sunday evening April 29th and
there is a lot of information posted about the series on the PBS web site. Click here for more details.
The first installment focused on how dogs evolved from wolves, the leading theory
now being that this happened only 15,000 years ago because of because of the
daily interactions between wolves and humans as people began to live in
permanent settlements. Raymond Coppinger, author of Dogs:
A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior, and Evolution (which
has been a Dogwise top seller for many years) was interviewed extensively
on the program and is a leading proponent of this new theory. The second
installment set to air on April 29 will trace the incredible diversity of
domestic dog breeds that have evolved though the use of selective breeding.
Geneticist Peter Savolainen's research will be featured - Peter contributed
an article in the recently published The
Dog and Its Genome which we carry.
