WDW NEWS & Canine Link of the Week
from WorkingDogWeb.com
June 6, 2004

Read this issue online at:
http://www.WorkingDogWeb.com/WDWNews-Online.htm

~~~~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of the most important developments in purebred dog genetics is the new discovery of "genetic fingerprints" for 85 popular breeds.  Researchers working on the dog genome found they could tell breeds apart genetically with an accuracy rate of some 99 percent.

Equally exciting is the discovery of 14 ancient breeds among the 85 that helps us understand the orgins of the domestic dog itself.  The new insights were published in the article “Genetic Structure of the Purebred Domestic Dog” in the journal Science, Volume 304, on May 21, 2004.

Questions on  dog genetics answered

Here is our own just-published article on the discovery of these 14 ancient breeds -- from the Chow Chow to the Basenji, the Pekingese to the Siberian Husky.  Because these ancient breeds have genetic markers similar to those of wolves, we also explore how owners and breeders may want to think about answering questions about their breeds. The article also shows the breeds that clustered in guarding, herding and hunting groups.   We also offer you a brand new Guide to Ancient Breeds that lets you explore their similarities and differences.  Check out coat colors!

Our TalkDogs discussion site continues to be active -- with dog owners asking about solving a young dog's diet problems, inquiring about activities with huskies -- and also asking what dog magazines you would recommend. Can you help with answers?  Thanks to the generous readers who are offering their suggestions.   Feel free to add your question or comment.  Start here:

Our popular Best Dog Free Stuff page has three new entries for your dogs and your kids, described below. Don't miss them!

Greyhound is Simply Fabulous!
DOG BEATS HORSE... ON UK TRACK

If you have wondered how fast dogs really are, then check out this story of the eight-year-old greyhound named Simply Fabulous taking on a six-year-old horse named Tiny Tim in a race over a course of two furlongs, or 400m, or about a quarter of a mile, at Kempton Park, Middlesex, in the UK.  Both the betting public and the jockey were pretty surprised at the result!
