    A canine humerus recovered from Erralla cave in the Basque Country, Spain in 1985 has now been dated to between 17,410 and 17,096 years ago. And multiple lines of analysis confirm it's not from a wolf, but a dog: Canis familiaris. This means that old, cracked humerus represents the oldest dog bone to date. That's an incredible datapoint for contextualizing dog domestication, and opens up new discussions about the timeline and the nature of remains of "dog-like wolves" thought to be an intermediate stage between wolves and dogs. When and how dogs diverged from their wolf (Canis lupus) ancestors, and...

    The Supreme Court is going to the dogs. The high court on Monday said it would hear a dispute between Jack Daniel’s and a company that sells a parody dog toy that mimics the whiskey brand’s iconic bottle. Jack Daniel’s had asked the high court to hear its case against Arizona-based VIP Products, which manufactures the Bad Spaniels dog toy. The toy resembles the Jack Daniel’s bottle and label, though the wording is different. The parody label reads “The Old No. 2 on Your Tennessee Carpet,” while the original reads “Old No. 7 brand” and “Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey.” Other...

    A neighbor’s Mini Australian Sheppard was found filleted and skinned nearby the murder site of four University of Idaho students.

His little legs had fur and his little face had fur, but the rest of him was just skinned.” The pair are rightfully shaken up. They have lived in their house for 39 years and they will now start locking their doors for the first time. The Colbert’s...

    This old-timer has a libido bigger than his bank account.

Janet Bedin, 68, claims Vito Verni, 84, pulled an emotional bait-and-switch between the beginning of 2019 and end of 2021 “when they lived together as a couple” in the 5,000-square-foot Westchester manse, the suit says. Bedin is now suing Verni for $80 million, charging a laundry...
