Why Do We Even Have Dogs?
Why Do We Even Have Dogs? Our dogs are many things in our lives. They’re our companions, best friends, watchdogs, second alarm clocks, and motivation to actually get out of bed. Each morning when we wake up to the various and intricate morning rituals our dog have, and we go about our day with these wonderful pups to love, we have to wonder, why do we even have dogs? They are lovable, but they haven't always been. As we all know, dogs were domesticated from wolves or another ancient and long-forgotten ancestor — it is almost impossible to connect a straight path from their wild ancestor …

The All American Boston Terrier
The All American Boston Terrier History isn’t always architecture, literature, or the finite things we see that remind us of a time before ours. History isn’t brick and mortar, or the words on a page that can sometimes show us a glimpse of the spirit of an age. But tactile things are static; their importance and context often eroded over the decades until someone steps in to remind us of their historical significance.
