    I thought I would share this as I found it today and cannot believe my eyes! I am also posting the story with it, or part of the story.

    Anyone know what kind of dog this is?
    In 1922, this was what a pure bred Boston Terrier looked like. Filmed at a dog show 90 years ago in the Netherlands, this Boston Terrier looks significantly different than his modern relatives do today. If this dog managed to time travel to the future, and landed on Main Street, USA in 2012, our bet is that he would be called a “pit bull†mix. And depending on what part of the country he landed in, that label just might cost him his life.

    We wonder what this dog would think about being judged solely on his looks – not for a dog show, like what’s happening here – but for his suitability as a family pet, his temperament, his future behaviors, and more. When will policy makers learn that we couldn’t tell a thing about a dog’s behavior based only on his looks in 1922 and we still can’t accurately evaluate a dog based solely on physical appearance almost 100 years later?

    when the boston was created the EBT was still widely matched and so some of the early bostons also found their way into the box.
