  1. That’s rather interesting….. (although the guy’s speech was so sped-up that I found it difficult to catch every word – it’s still early over here and my grey matter is probably not fully awake yet – AND outside somebody is mowing the grass with a HUGE powerful seater-lawnmower. He is wearing heavy ear protection pads!)
    Now can we PLEASE have the ‘same thing’ on dogs? I’m far more interested in their story of domestication 😉
