New Finding…Posted: March 18, 2010
Faye sent this interesting article…
A few years ago the Gompa dogs participated in a similar study done by Peter Savolainen of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. He makes some interesting observations regarding the above, if you read further into the article.
As I was reading this article, I recalled – vaguely (which is usual these days) – a similar mitochondrial DNA study done with humans. Those researchers made a great case for the origin of three ‘ Eves’. Africa. Middle East. Himalayas. It makes sense to me that domesticated dog would follow a similar path…scoundrels and users of mankind that they are! 🙂
Melissa took this photo of Nagpo. It’s one of my favorites. It captures her ‘ancientness’.
