Dog Days

It has been my view that dogs are often stupid despite some natural intelligence, but the reason why may have been locked into the genes from ancient times.

Science has changed my mind because wolves are brighter than dogs it seems according to an article in Science Daily.

My theory now is that as dogs descended from wolves and then became domesticated they were made stupid by long term close contact with humans.

So don't blame the dogs.
