Origin of Small Dogs Pinned Down - Yahoo! News
Anyone read that? Kind of interesting.
thats deifnatly interesting...
and makes some sense
though depist it all for me its still incredibly hard to belive that the chihuahua...comes from a wolf lol
even more so i have a hard time looking at my little nekkid man and thinking wolf LOL!
Interesting. But I wonder if small scavanger dogs did well in a certain place in a certain time because they require less food than a larger dog. When food is scarce, leftovers are scarce.
eh.... there's a few things I don't buy there.
First, I'm not on the whole "dogs are from wolves bandwagon." I more think they evolved from a common ancestor.
There are many different reasons why the grey wolf in the middle east may share a similiar gene.... so that doesn't mean that small dogs came from them...
hmm..that is quite interesting.
definitely some food for thought
IF what I read was correct both cats and dogs originated from the same creature.
Yeah, this popped out at me when I read the article too.
I'd be interested, though, to see if they can find the gene in any other canids.
