Seems like everybody’s blogging about Cesar Millan.

The Agitator blogs on a disturbing number of recent cases where innocent dogs were shot by clueless thugs police officers.


Check out the Pet Cave, a combination bookcase and dog house from the most excellent Bookshelf blog.

BioNet reports that F.W. Albert of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology is working to find the genetic basis for tameness.  As he notes, it will be a “formidable challenge’.

The Extinction of Rabies? Addicted to Love?

    You guys know dogs better than I do, but do you really think a dog would use the Pet Cave?

    I can see every cat I’ve ever owned glomming onto it immediately (cushion for Lindsey, bare floor for the Queen of the Universe). IN fact, if the Queen of the Universe’s sister was still with us, I believe that any book I tried to place on the shelves would have unobtrusively fallen to the floor as she stretched out and turned around. (That cat could clear a coffee table — and make it look “accidental” like no other cat I’ve ever seen).

    I just don’t see Pepper using this — or even one of Terrierman’s dogs who would probably fit beautifully.

    If it was sized appropriately – and heated – Zip would love it.
