I've always been interested in animal behavior, particularly of primates, pachyderms, canines and of the various animals I've owned as pets. I find animal behavior absolutely fascinating and even when I was a child, I loved to read about it and when we go to the zoo, I could spend hours watching the primates and elephants. If I could, I'd love to go to Africa to study them in their natural habitat. That would be like Heaven to me.<quoted text>
Heh! Love this!
And it's informative :)
Canines are also fascinating simply because we've managed to create a domestic one and their behavior is complex. While they share similar behavioral traits with wild canids, they're also so very different. Besides, understanding canine behavior helps make for better trained dogs and that goes a long way in the show ring. ;o)
