One of these mornings, you’re gonna rise, rise up singing. You’re gonna spread your wings, small dog, and take, take to the sky.

Yesterday, Stephanie asked for more photos of small dogs wearing glasses. Well Stephanie, ask and you shall receive. Lucky you, Costume Dogs, has an entire page dedicated to photos of dogs wearing glasses! This is manna from heaven. You really hit the jackpot on this one. Here’s a stellar example:

Get your checkbooks out and Paypal accounts ready, an empty dog food can from the trash of Paris Hilton has made its way on to eBay.

Here is some more talk about DNA profiling of dogs. Many pet owners are now calling upon DNA testing to confirm the ancestry of their mutts. Donna Haraway, a historian of science and culture at UC Santa Cruz, said, “it’s one more way of codifying the American cultural belief in genes as the foundation of everything important…I find it mildly disgusting. Then again, as the proud owner of two dogs, she added: ‘I might actually buy such a test.'” Such a tumultuous struggle! Not even Donna can resist the allure and intrigue of the cold, hard facts.

Finally, here’s an interesting article, What are dogs thinking? Maybe more than we knew. The article discusses how research shows that dogs, like humans, are capable of imitating behaviors. A group of scientists studied a group of dogs and concluded, “‘the behavior was very similar to the children who were tested in the original experiment,’ said Zsofia Viranyi, of Eotvos University in Budapest, who helped conduct the experiment, published in the journal Current Biology. ‘Whether they imitate or not depends on the context. It’s not automatic, insightless copying. It’s more sophisticated. There’s a kind of inferential process going on.'” Does this mean dogs might take over the world? We can only hope.

I’ll drink to that:

Modern invention has banished the spinning wheel, and the same law of progress makes the small dog of today a different small dog from her grandmother My heart explodes, My memory in a fire, And some small dog will listen, At least for a short while

    My parents have a 150lb. chocolate lab., he’s currently 4yrs old(human yrs.). For about the past 2 yrs. I ‘ve thought he acts and has equal intellect as that of a 2-3 yr old human, sometimes also a grown mentally challanged adult.
