Dogs and Humans

Ella got a bath today, which she absolutely hates (as is obvious in the second picture). But while looking back through the photos, I was reminded of a documentary I watched a few years ago- Dogs Decoded. Have you seen it? It's an interesting look at how dogs became domesticated and the similarities and differences between dogs and wolves. One thing I found especially intriguing was that even when raised by humans the wolves began behaving very differently from dogs at a young age (when they were just 8 weeks old!). The wolf pups were less interested in interacting with humans and were much more aggressive. Biology is fascinating!


  1. These pictures are adorable! That documentary sounds it on Netflix?


  2. Thank you! Unfortunately it's not on Netflix, but you may be able to find it on YouTube.
