Did you know that almost all breeds of dogs were bred with specific jobs in mind?
Yep, We humans have been trading our wares (excess food) for canine services (fetching..diving..sniffing) since we crawled out of the caves.
If you are curious as to the reason your Best Buddy behaves in certain ways, you might follow this blog down the trail to your buddy's ancestors.
Just let me say.... right now....at the start of the trail... that POMERANIANS were bred to be our companions.
Yes Sir-ee... Legend has it that the peoples of the far Northern regions kept the tiny puppies from their sled dogs and started to breed them down to a travel companion size. (Kind of like the ladies you see with the tiny dog in their purse?.) Well, except for the fact that they had to get under a bunch of furs with the little human babies and keep them warm as they traveled through terribly cold regions. If you have ever snuggled with a POM you know the amount of heat they can put out. Of course the smaller they bred them the handier they were and the more they rode around with the babies the friendlier they got. POMS just seem to know what is wanted from them. I think that they read our emotions even better than other dogs due to that close connection with us.
