"But why, out of all of the animals that humans have domesticated, have dogs become so close to their owners? "
Can't view videos at work, but the answer is pretty darned simple: Both are hierarchical pack animals. A dog is perfectly happy with a human as pack leader. The most a cat, horse, or cow will do is to accept a human as another member of the same species, albeit a strange looking one.

The dogie whisperer is a joke. He is an OK trainer but his knowledge is limited to certain situations.
He has no knowledge of working dogs and how they react or are trained in working situations. As long as he is in central park talking to some over zealous PETA pet Nazi who baby talks and wipes their pits butt he is fine. Put him in the real world with military working dogs, coon hound, bear hounds, or cat hounds on the run and this guy will look like th idiot he is. A good working border collie would demonstrate their superior intelligence. I know several dogs who are smarter about people than he is about dogs.

Hi! First time post, long time lurker. Easier to start off in a topic I'm totally comfortable in, although I adore A Day In The Life of President Bush/Sanity Island.
Kenzie, a Wheaton Terrier, is looking to hook up with First Dog Barney in this adorable and clever video: My Date With Barney, The First Dog/YouTube.

all domesticated dogs living today are descended from just a few wild wolves that roamed Asia some 15,000 years ago.
Now really ...... just asking, but how in the world can that claim be proved?
Ridiculous if you ask me.

Video by "Wild Chronicles," airing on PBS, made possible by National Geographic Mission Programs and WWF and presented by WLIW New York
I am a little puzzled about this article. Is the 5-minute video "it"? Or is there a scheduled expanded version scheduled to be aired sometime on PBS stations as one of the "Wild Chronicles" - National Geographic hour programs?
My local PBS station in Sacramento, California does not seem to have a record of it.
