Another great example of a class perfect for a continuation in a DC College 500 series...

You'd certainly think people had a lot to do with present day genetic dog diseases because of this...

I spent 10 minutes trying to explain to a 13dog year old neighborhood boy that dogs don't descend from horses... Fail.

I LIKE THIS CLASS IT WAS VERY EDUCATIVE AND VERY INTERESTING FACTS THAT CAN HELP US UNDERSTAND THE LOYALTY THAT OUR DOGS HAVE FOR US HUMANS. IT IS SAD TO KNOW HOW IGNORANT PEOPLE ABUSE THIS BEAUTIFUL AND LOYAL CREATURES.
