Thanks for the article on Dog Genome Project - I found it very interesting. I was trying to figure out the interactive Genome wheel. It has the basenji closely related to the Azawakh and rat terrier but I’m still trying to figure out the first wheel which has the basenji listed w/ black/grey starting point. As far as the PBS Dog Tales video - it’s very interesting - it’s season 47 episode 2 - I highly recommend you watch the whole thing (54 minutes).

Finally someone with a backbone - article from Chris Durant - follow the link.
This is a very well written piece on the MV controversy. I can forgive people, but his actions (not only with the dogs) show that he has a very poor/evil outlook on some things. Perhaps he has a brain disorder such as borderline personality disorder, but that alone shouldn't be a reason to excuse his wicked ways. IMO, he was not held accountable long enough for his actions. I don't believe someone like him can be totally rehabilitated. I believe this is not the last time we will hear about MV in a negative way.
