Doggone dogs make headlines

The head of Canine Science Collaboratory, Clive D.L. Wynne, says the origin of dogs was not as “man’s best friend.” Dogs could have actually started as mutant wolves that lived in the garabage like rats.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, State Patrol dogs in Ohio have forced drug smugglers to avoid crossing Ohio. The patrol trains its dogs to search for four scents: cocaine, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine.  

The FDA reports more than 3,600 dogs got sick after eating jerky pet treats over the past six years and 580 of those pets have died. The FDA wants owners to keep the leftover treats for a sample if a pet gets sick from eating such treats.

  1. Very interesting about the jerky! People should know about that so they don’t feed that to their furry friends. Also the first one about dogs originating in garbage cans and being mutant wolves was not something I had ever thought about before. Good info to have!
