    dog was destined for, so as long as a dog could do its job well, its parentage or purity was of no concern. Because of this, gene transfer between breeds in a particular region was common, keeping bloodlines fresh and preventing genetic stagnation. Many of our now-standardized breeds originated as a practical blend of two older breeds. After years of subsequent pairings, these mixtures began to solidify as a separate, distinct member of the canine family. With the emergence of new breeds, and the popularity of previously established breeds, dog enthusiasts in the mid 19th century needed a way to standardize the expectations judges were to consider at dog shows, which were beginning to gain traction among the upper class. In order to clearly govern these rules, in Birmingham, England, in the year 1859, the first dog show society was formed. In 1873, The Kennel Club was formed, also in Birmingham. Since the first kennel club was formed, numerous others have appeared, and all have had a hand in developing breed standards as we see them today.

My parents both had post-graduate degrees – in fact my father, like Heathcliff Huxtable, was a good-humored physician. Just like the Huxtables, we were a nuclear family of seven: two cis-gendered married parents with five spirited children…

  • Synthesis Of The Truman Show

    Like The Matrix, Inception, or The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley, The Truman show causes people to question their own existence in ways that can only be understood through liberal use of therapists and commercial sex workers.
