Yaller Dog Two

This is really funny. The FReepers have a page up extolling the "yaller dog" or Carolina dog. I found the link through a breeder site who used the Bible and the Book of Mormon to begin his tracing of the history of the breed.

One of the commenter's actually referred to "Old Yeller", but none picked up that they were chatting about the "yaller dog" of Democratic fame.

Not too surprising. FReepers are just not that bright.

Although, amazingly, another posted this very interesting article from Science News, if you want to learn even more about "yaller" dogs and primitive dogs in general. Did you know that some geneticists are theorizing that dogs became domesticated 100,000 years ago?
