Hoomans did the dirty deed. Dogs are far to hoomane to have invented baths.

Great article! But I think that I am still trying to 'civilize' my humans. If that's possible...

That is an interesting article! We reckon we dogs contribute a great deal to domesticating the human.
After all we have ensured routine and order in their lives!!!

Very interesting indeed (and how nice to find some like-minded friends of a scientific bent). Well of course it's quite obvious that humans couldn't have got where they are today without us, although I must say that the corn/human co-evution idea does seem just a bit far fetched....

Very interesting. I'm leaning towards the 50/50 theory- so may things the leggeds can't do without us (blogging for one) How's about your two detective mini me's do some detective work on the theory?

Wiry wags n kissies Eric xxxx

There is no question. Dogs have it over humans without a doubt.

Oh, I've been much more successful in training Mom than she has been in training me! Ha! (You'll notice how many posts are on MY blog versus hers...)

Speaking of which, Mom just started writing again on her blog and saw your Dogmom's great comment. Many thanks!

Your pal,
