    Thank you! I am not a big tv person, but this sounds good. Do you have an overview of the program?

    Thanks for the heads up on this program. It was very interesting. Cannot wait for Part II.

    The study of fox in Russia--the breeders wanted fox that were not aggressive and easier to work with. Their "test" was to put a gloved hand into the fox cage. Any fox that was not aggressive was used for breeding. The selection for non agressiveness resulted in a lot of other changes, notably the fur color. The changes happened within 10 years. It was interesting to see that the quest to change one trait impacted other traits and physical characteristics.

    What is the title of the Nat'l Geographic show?

    I thought National Geographic's show last night on dogs was more interesting.

    Good program...I watched it tonight...Looking forward to Part II also.
    My dog seemed to like it too...he was real intent when they showed the border collies and the huskies...but could have cared less when the wolves started howling. Odd.

    Very enjoyable enlightening show espesially the herding border collies doing their work bringing that flock across that fast moving creek! I knew better than to hope for any Sporting Dog work but it was cool none the less!

    I didn't see the show. Anybody tape it? (I know DVR is the thing now, but still..) Every now & then there are Border Collie demos around. Really incredible to watch.

    Peake-

    I bet Chris remembers the Border Collie that ran NAHRA. I remember talking to the owner once and she said some folks were not thrilled that she was running a non-retriever, but that dog did the work!

    I almost had a dog fight on my hands. Dyna was laying here watching it with her litter of 7 pups and really got upset when the Dobermans started running toward the camera. I thought she was going to become an attack dog as well.

    Dave, in the mid 90's a local cardiologist/business man placed a border collie with a pro I trained with. The dog liked birds and retrieving. I don't remember it in Started but I believe it had started passes and earned a trip to the regional in started. The wheels came off some in intermediate. It would work on a blind but not all that willingly and it's memory was somewhat suspect. Wide apart with few factors he seemed to have a memory, tight and/or factors was a different story. I don't know what the upper limits of this dog were as the cardiologist died in a boating accident and the family took it out of training. I'd suspect the dog could have done some NAHRA senior work. Given enough tests, I think it would have become an MHR. BTW, long swims were not this dogs forte.

    Greg Floyd might remember the dog better than I do.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
