A Dog's Life with Anna Webb
A Dog's Life with Anna Webb
Anna Webb, Mike Hanson
Dogs. They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves. Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary. She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal. It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive. Cover photo by @Gruffpawtraits

Dogor the Prehistoric Puppy
Dr Dave Stanton a Research Fellow at the Swedish Museum of Natural History joins Anna to chat about Dogor a prehistoric puppy discovered in Siberia. Dave worked with the Centre for Palaegenetics in Stockholm and dated Dogor as 18,000 years old. As the oldest dog-like creature found so perfectly preserved, could Dogor be the missing link between wolves and dogs? Are wolves dogs or are dogs wolves? When did we domesticate dogs, or did they domesticate us? Dogor as a unique specimen might just have some answers.
