    I just purchased and received the Nature- Dogs that changed the world. Part one "the rise of the Dog" and part two "dogs by design"

    It has a whole section on it. Shows how quickly the changes came about and it talks about how quickly the dog could have evolved.

    It is a great DVD, I got it form Amazon UK. The cheapest place to get DVD's

    How amazing is it! I saw it on a show called 'The Secret Life of Dogs' a few weeks ago, I think on ABC or SBS? It was brilliant, the show was all about the relationship between humans and dogs and how it developed, and how dogs are the only animals that can recognise emotion on human faces etc. So, so interesting.

    Thanks for posting the clip CD, I'll be able to actually point people to something now, instead of just gushing and describing it, haha. And newfsie, are the Nature-Dogs ones BBC too? If so, it might be that I saw a reduced, TV version of one of them, in which case I'll definitely go out and buy them.

    Strangely enough, I actually have started writing a series about the Belyaev's fox experiment on my blog. If you are interested, here is a link: Some Thoughts About Dogs

    There is also links to papers I have read/done research through, so that might be of interest, too.

    I'd love you to link others. Glad you found it of interest.

    I am working on the next parts now (I think there'll be 4 parts on the fox experiment itself). It's been very worthwhile reading for myself, and it's been in the works for weeks, so it's very satisfying to finally produce posts on the Belyaev's fox experiment. It's been a process!
