      NEXT ON NOVA: "DOGS AND MORE DOGS"

      http://www.pbs.org/nova/dogs/

      Broadcast: February 3, 2004
      (NOVA airs Tuesdays on PBS at 8 p.m. Check your local listings as
      dates and times may vary.)

      From the huskies of the frozen North to the basenjis of the Congo
      River basin and the golden retrievers in America's backyards, dogs
      have carved a niche for themselves in every human society. How did
      this unique relationship develop? What can the latest breakthroughs
      in genetics tell us about the secrets of dog origins and breeding?
      And can dog sociologists and psychiatrists unravel the puzzling,
      lovable, and often maddening quirks of dog behavior? Despite such
      variation, all domestic dogs, as well as their common ancestor, the
      gray wolf, have virtually identical genes. How can science explain
      the incredible diversity of breeds? In "Dogs," NOVA launches an
      entertaining and affectionate search for the secrets of dog
      variation and behavior.

      Here's what you'll find online:

      Inquiry and Article

      A Potpourri of Pooches
      How come dogs, alone among Earth's species, come in so many
      shapes and sizes?

      The Truth About Dogs
      In this excerpt from his book, Stephen Budiansky explains why
      he feels dogs have got us exactly where they want us.

      Slide Show and Interactive

      Working Dogs
      Sniffing out termites, aiding search-and-rescue missions,
      locating land mines -- the tasks dogs perform are remarkably
      diverse.

      Dogs Around the World
      Match 14 dogs to the environment they were bred for, from the
      rugged mountains of Argentina to the Australian outback.

      Also, Links and Books, a video preview of the program, the program
      transcript, and a teacher's guide.
