For Dogs, It's 'Survival of the Cutest'

New research shows that how we value the "cuteness" of our pet dogs could influence a breed's survival, variation and overall evolutionary pattern.

Sad, but true...thank goodness that:
a- beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
b- all dogs have HUGE cuteness factor

As a matter of fact my husband picked our rescued shar-pei mix puppy (he's now 10) because he was the smallest and ugliest of the litter and he thought no one would pick him... (you see why I married the man, don't you? That pup turned into the most gorgeous head-turning dog - and the sweetest....

Well, I picked up a stray little Wire Terrier/Beagle Mutt out in the rain in the middle of the street, a big street and she turned out to be the fiercest, most loyal watchdog ever. Daisy Mae is in Animal Heaven now after 16 years with me and she was too cute, too. But at first she had issues as she was dumped at the firest preserve so I just knew what would happen if I took her to the shelter, because she hated kids till the day she died, so I believe she was abused. I still cry when I hear "our song". I love YOU more today ,than yesterday, but not as much as Tomorrow." I seen a show on Discovery Channel about Show dogs that veterinarians said were very deformed for the sake of show. I seen a German Shepard that looked like he had trouble walking. Well, I snuck off and gotta get back to work. LOL
