What's most amazing reading this is that scientists have been studying this phenomenon since before the internet, a network that has likely accelerated the effects dramatically. Life online may allow us to connect more easily, but we also choose those with whom we connect thereby isolating ourselves. Fascinating stuff.

The girls and I would walk across the low dock to fish for crabs with bacon on a string. Red would be right there all the way splashing into the water with a big leap. The girls would have trouble fishing for the crabs because Red would not let them near the edge of the dock. Very rough, strong and dedicated. Great dog!
