The Past, Present and Future of Dogs

December 2, 2009 at 5:12 pm 3 comments

Because I’m still busy trying to catch up on stuff I haven’t been able to get done and get ahead on a few things in anticipation of another six months of recuperation and rehabilitation — there hasn’t been a lot of time to write thoughtful posts.  So here are a few interesting things I’d like to pass along:

For a look into the past, Ecce Canis, a wonderful essay by Justin Erik Halldor Smith on how our lives have been intertwined with dogs since prehistory, and what this means for both species.

A look into the present – as imagined back in 1974 – from Paleo-Future.

The future of politically correct relationships with pets exposed by Henry Makow in Bad Dog.

And just in case you came here looking for something a bit lighter – check out the emergency yodel button.

    From the way I hear a lot of ‘trainers’ talk today, that whole “politicaly correct relationships” thing is pretty much here, or at least a shadow of it.

    And what do you mean, you’re behind? ‘Tis the SEASON to be a behind, what with all the good citrus and wine available for the holidays! 😉

    I may whine – but I’m still up for fresh citrus and good wine :-}
