    This is a native Georgia bulldog, a better mascot for a football team than the English monstrosity.

  • 09/24/13--07:54: Pug with a muzzle!
  •   Ignore the cartoon of the “heart on the nose.” (I lack this cuteness gene). This is a pug with a decent mug!

    I’ve heard two histories of the boxer dog. One of them is just as Megargee describes it– a dog like a dogue de Bordeaux that was bred down into a German boar catcher. I’ve even heard it suggested that the South African boerboel is actually almost entirely derived from the Brabanter bullenbeisser, which supposedly looked […]

    Source. I don’t know what it is, but in pit bulls and their derivatives, inbreeding is celebrated. An American bully is an offshoot of the pit bull, which has been specifically bred to be less aggressive and to have a body that makes them resemble Tasmanian devils. However, there are other breeders of “exotic” bullies […]

    The Norwegian lundehund is one of the most inbred dog breeds in the closed registry system, and I have questioned the wisdom of including this breed into a dog population management culture that celebrates blood purity over health and good science. Because of its peculiar adaptations for traversing rocky cliffs and squeezing down puffin burrows, […]

  • 11/20/13--09:37: Konrad Lorenz’s Krokodil
  • Today, there much talk about a flesh-eating drug called “Krokodil,” which is derived from the Russian* word for crocodile. There is quite a bit of paranoia about the drug spreading to the US, but it doesn’t seem likely at this time. However, every time I see a report about this drug, I instantly think of […]

    What I am about to suggest is something rather extreme. I wouldn’t have deliberately plagiarized Lenin in the title if I were to write something somewhat milquetoast and banal. But right now, there is a major welfare problem in the world of dogs that I don’t think can be solved with gentle suggestions and politically […]

    From the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch: A baby girl was killed by the family dogs yesterday morning while her father slept on the couch in their West Side condo, Columbus police said. Mia Gibson, who would have turned 3 months old this week, was pronounced dead at Nationwide Children’s Hospital at 7:45 a.m., after she was […]

    And here are photos of the winner of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in 2012, Ch. Palacegarden Malachy: The great “breed improvement” contests that have gone on for the past century have certainly done their magic. What was once a pretty hardy little dog is now a little lion trying to be a marmoset. […]

  • 02/04/14--19:03: Little Freddy
  • From Pietoro’s Historical Dog photobucket. An English toy spaniel. The British use a different term for this breed, but it’s the more exaggerated ancestor of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In the late nineteenth century and very early twentieth century, this was a very common breed among dog fanciers, especially women. While sporting gentlemen were […]

    I am not fan of journalism by press release. It’s not really “journalism” anyway. It is simply media relations, and media relations might as well be called spin. Spin is not really about the truth. It’s about advocacy, and it’s often about deception. There is so much of this in the world of journalism about […]

    Nara U. sent me this photo today.  I hope you are not eating when you look at this photo: This dog was bred by a Peruvian dog breeder (or more likely, a Peruvian dog dealer) named “Sharpei Juliuss,” who apparently has decided to push the defective and feverish sha-rpei phenotype as far as it will go.
