I recently read Dog Is Love by Clyde D.L. Wynne PhD that was released this past fall. It made me flash on a couple disscusions recently on this site about breeds/brands. Very interesting book especially the lasts couple chapters on shelters & shelter dogs and purebreds & diseases. There is also a PBS show (can't remember what is was called) that touched on some of this book. The differences between dogs and wolves. The book talks about a genetic study about Wilson's syndrome & dogs friendlyness which was interesting. On the PBS show, the young lady with Wilson's syndrome has a huge doodle too!
Anybody else read this book or saw the show? If you haven't, I'd highly recommend it!
