RE: How many folks just want to gripe about EVs?

"UPDATE APRIL 23, 2022: based on .....a direct reply from Rivian Customer Service, it turns out that Rivian is NO LONGER claiming that their electric vehicles can be flat-towed behind a motorhome! As of now, they are indicating that Rivian EVs would need to be put on a flat-bed trailer to be towed behind another vehicle. BIG disappointment that we hope is corrected some day. But as of now, there do not appear to be ANY all-electric vehicles that are capable of being flat-towed, four wheels down. There ARE some HYBRID vehicles that are able to be flat-towed, but be sure to check with the manufacturer before assuming."Too bad it can't be towed behind a motor home charging it as it was pulled using the motors as generators when the motor home brakes were applied. While I may never own a EV I sure like the looks of the new Buick Electra and the new Lincoln car.

RE: New study on genetic origins of dogs

I don't think that is correct. Right now, the breeds most commonly identified as being the most closely related genetically to wolves are (not in order): Huskies Malamutes Chow Chows Akitas Shiba Inus Shih Tzus Llhasa Apsos Pekinese Samoyed Saluki Tibetan Terrier Basenji Afghan Hound Shar PeiJust recalling a chart the International Wolf Center in Ely had on the wall.

RE: New study on genetic origins of dogs

Experiments with the breeding of foxes has shown that wild animals can be more or less domesticated in a few generations. By selecting for the calmest animals, the least afraid of humans they can be pet quality animals in about 7 generations. The wide variety and number of dog breeds, is a testament to the power of breeding. Line breeding on purpose is fine. Spay and neuter pets unless you plan to improve the breeding of your pet's line. In-breeding is a slippery slope that brings out recessive genes, but al;so brings along with it things like deafness, blindness and bad hips and eyes.I remember seeing that. Was it in Russia? They selected the calmest pairs to breed and they also did a experiment with the most aggressive pairs as well. At Silver Rapids a local Grey Wolf would stop by for his dog biscuit of a evening. Last year I had a Black bear and her 2 cubs down the road from my trailer, got the boat air horn out and they took off for the woods.
