but anyways to give q-she somethn to ponder, here, maybe youd like to read this, q-she.. check this link http://www.biology-online.org/articles/ ... veals.html

to quote: Man's best friend, in this case a male poodle, is genetically more similar to humans than is the mouse, a more commonly used laboratory animal, according to researchers who have completed the first rough draft sequence of the genes of a dog.

they have not yet started sequencing the genes of cow... so no point of comparison for now... :)

no matter how silly it may seem to others just remember this famous chinese proverb:

He who asks is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask remains a fool forever

I don't think it was a silly questioon at all. In our bio book we've got relations trees of the species and it also says there that the dog is closer related to humans.

No question is silly. Questioning means learning. No question no learning. However, too much questions is annoying :lol:

I love joking, you all should know that ;)
