What I learned: the neighbors’ dog is not the neighbors’ dog
Why it's important: the number of times I've put the dog back in their yard

The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris or Canis familiaris) is a member of genus Canis (canines) that forms part of the wolf-like canids, and is the most widely abundant carnivore. The dog and the extant gray wolf are sister taxa, with modern wolves not closely related to the wolves that were first domesticated, which implies that the direct ancestor of the dog is extinct. The dog was the first domesticated species and has been selectively bred over millennia for various behaviors, sensory capabilities, and physical attributes. – Wikipedia

Dogs – bred to be our best animal friend – Stanley Coren discusses results of the latest research into dogs’ brains and their abilities, including thoughts on how dogs became the way they are.

How one oddball dog saved Middle Island’s penguins – Allan Marsh is not your average chook farmer. He uses colourful language, has strong opinions and thinks if he can inspire just one person to challenge a bureaucrat, then he’s lived a good life. Swampy, as he likes to be called, and his old dog Oddball are also the inspiration for Shane Jacobson’s latest movie, Oddball.
What will a dog do for a tennis ball? – Would it, perhaps, do its bit to save the endangered marsupials of Australia? I mean, if it knew there was a tennis ball at the end of it?
We all know how to train a puppy. You say their name, you give them a treat. You call them, they come, you give them a treat. They sit when they’re told, you give them a treat. You do that for a few months, and you have a dog that knows simple commands. But a lot of us are guilty of failing to continue that process as our dogs mature. An ongoing program of training not only keeps your dog stimulated, but it can also help them keep up with you as your life changes. A little over a year ago, I bought a giant, lifted Land Rover. Lifting Wiley into it is a pain the ass, so in that year, I’ve taught him that “load up” means he should jump up into his designated seat. Now he knows that, and I get to cruise around with an awesome dog poking his head out the window of an awesome truck, without a sore back.
