Also, currently reading "Monkeyluv" by Robert Sapolsky and am seriously enjoying his scientific, yet readable, essays on the myth of genes as inescapable and somehow inextricable from environment. Sure, he's talking monkeys, but the same holds for canines...


I finally got around to checking out Redemption from the library (apologies to Winograd, but I'm kind of poor right now), and I was really surprised to see that spitz dogs were once demonized for being overly susceptible to rabies.

I don't know if it's comforting or terrifying to see that this silly crap has been around for so long, and has been used to target so many different types of dog.

But the more of them you pile up, the more ridiculous the current myths start to look.

PS: Most Pomeranians do have rabies, though. Fact!
