That's why I have cats.

Central Asia....isn't that where white people arose? Did stone age control freaks invent the dog? Tune in tomorrow!
Probably happened much longer ago than 100,000 years and more than one species of 'dog'. Why are these people so arrogant in their assessments when they do not have the complete facts.

additional information has revealed that the domesticated dog appeared at about the same time as the wok and the hibachi grill. Coincidence? I don't think do.

Thanks for posting this. It's one of my favorite scientific investigations. Dogs have been found to be entirely descended from one species Canis Lupus and mostly from subspecies chanco, the Chinese wolf. All new and old world dog fossils are of this old world species. New World evidence of dogs go back to the Pleistocene. This means humans colonized most of the world in the company of dogs.

Somewhere along the way, humans learned they could breed dogs for particular jobs. Mating two fast dogs produced young that were also fast. The same was true for dogs that could dig, herd animals, hunt or attack humans.
The various breeds look the way they do because sometime in the distant past humans wanted a dog for specific service to people, said Lynch.
Hmmmm. Early neanderthal geneticists. Who knew?
