Dogs and Banjos

I never thought I’d be reading a debate about dog breeding on Slashdot, but aparently a new study about the origin of dogs has generated some interesting Slashdot posts like this one from R.Caley:

“Dog breeders have problems not because of the genetic base of all dogs, but
because they make money breeding dogs with their close relatives. The result is
the doggy equivalent of banjo players and European royals.”

Insightful and Funny :-)
