Fascinating! Excellent post Kevin.

What's up with all the dog posts? For a second I thought it was April 1st.

Dear Pacific:

Well, I could say the blog is going to the dogs, but the reality is that I find the genetics to be fascinating. These studies are being done in dogs because they have so many specific breeds characterized by distinctive, stable, heritable phenotypes. But if we get similar studies on mice, cats or other animals, I will probably write about those as well.

I also think it's a nice break from FOBs, PTO rules packages, KSR and the rest of what we write about. These stories were posted on consecutive days just because I came across the journal articles at the same time. (We could have posted the dog fur story last Thursday, for example.)

Thanks for asking. We will now return to our regular programming.

Hi Kevin, the above study report was really helpful for me. I appreciate the efforts you take here.

- Dr. Mathew J.
