Looking up National speech pathology week, one of google's sponsored links caught boynton's eye. Image resources for language teachers (and speech pathologists) provides a sample of flashcards on offer. As a blogging aid, boynton will now illustrate the latest chapter in the sorry saga of walking a blue heeler through the suburbs as if she's a domesticated animal.
The revelation this is not a domestic dog led boynton to look up Konrad Lorenz and wolves. This is a good review of Man meets Dog.
Lorenz propounds the thesis, which has been debated hotly, that some dogs are descended from jackals and some predominantly from wolves intermingled with the blood of jackals.
