Creators of Living Art – The Art of Breeding Dogs

08

Have you been to an art museum recently? Think back to what you saw – works of art in varying sizes, styles, shapes, and media. A close perusal of the program revealed information about some of the artists, while other artists in the program weren’t recognized at all. Walking around, a patron with a discerning eye could see the work of true artists, whether they were listed in the program or not.

The Same Discriminating Tastes as a Starving Hyena

07

We all know dogs that are happy to eat a lot of things that would never pass our lips–grass, pig ears, cow leg bones, rawhide, to name just a few. There are also dogs, like Bo, my current Chesapeake, who is so picky that only kibble that costs half the national debt per bag topped with homemade chicken loaf – that’s nearly as costly to prepare – is satisfactory.

Our Ever-Changing World – Advances in Canine Science

06

Chances are, you and I share one very important gene. A team of European scientists studied 35,035 human twin pairs to understand if human genetics influence the desire to own a dog.

Sandyland Kennels – The Labrador at Its Finest

04

This sport has always existed in a paradoxical universe. Although it’s never been immune to the frenetic influences of social expectations, that proximity has never dictated its evolution. Nothing illustrates this better than the bizarrely indefinable role of women in the sport.

“Rescue” Dogs and “Breeders” – A PR Nightmare

02

So one day last week, requiring a few minutes in the dog free zone (and don’t pretend this is news to you) I stepped into the corner bar. It’s nice. The only place where my total information gap about major league sports serves me well.

The Big E – Experts or Critics?

07

When and how did we all become experts? Why do we feel compelled to even be one? More importantly, what makes us an expert? Who decides that someone actually is one?

Table Talk July 10, 2019

SMOnlineTableTalk1-500x524-342x358

I spent my first 4th of July weekend home in years! While I missed the California folks that I normally see on this weekend, it was quite nice to spend the weekend at home. I think, every once in awhile, we all need to try to spend a holiday weekend at home with our families [...]

Clusters and Gasoline – Where Are We Now?

01

The things we do for dog shows! Like scores of other kids in dog show families, at 4AM, on government assigned mornings, I waited in very long lines…

The Changing Face of the Iditarod

20

Possibly the greatest thing about dogs is their infinite adaptability. Our rainbow spectrum of breeds is the ultimate testament to that. But even within those parameters, they demonstrate remarkable flexibility. Chihuahuas in Siberia, what’s the problem? Great Danes in studio apartments, well that one’s practically a modern-life stereotype.

Send In The Clowns – Epic Tales About Canines

19

Not long ago, several of us were sitting around talking about dogs. Dog people in general like to do this and people who hunt with their dogs are especially prone to telling epic tales about their canine partners in much the same way, I suspect, as the ancient Greeks and Romans used to sit around telling stories about their great warriors.
