Fittest dog ever?

As part of a series on animals thriving in human-dominated landscapes (think crows or raccoons in the northern hemisphere, and dogs pretty much everywhere), I had to do another on dogs because this is the smartest / best-trained one ever.

Humans and dogs go way back, and a new study suggests that several of our genes and dogs' genes have evolved in parallel, perhaps due to living in crowded conditions that would favor survival and reproduction of dogs that were more docile, cute, and affectionate. And probably smart as well, as you can see here:

This dog is super fit in more ways than one. We were happy when our dogs would sit or stay for a few seconds! Jumping on cue was out of the question.

  1. Great to end up going to your weblog once more, it has been a very long time for me. Pleasantly this article I've been sat tight for so long. I will require this post to add up to my task in the school, and it has identical subject together with your review. Much appreciated, great offer. 토토사이트추천
