Canines have been in the forefront of history and tradition, workin' side by side with humans for nearly 14,000 years.

"Often the dogs were buried with their owners, Morey notes. The oldest known dog, dating to about 14,000 years ago in Germany, was buried with two people. In Kentucky, at Indian Knoll, more than half of the dog burials from around 5,000 years ago were with people. And at Ashkelon, in Israel, about 1,000 dogs were buried next to a human cemetery more than 2,000 years ago.

"And these weren't casual burials, Morey notes. "At Ashkelon, each corpse was carefully placed in its own grave, with the dogs buried on their sides and their tails arranged to curl at the feet."

We've been your partners through thick and thin; hunted for your food and hauled your wagons; rescued the injured, comforted the sick, and listened to your problems for longer than your current shrink—all for nothin' more than the chance to be your companion.

We've been the stars of classic literature, stage, and screen, from A Dog of Flanders to Rin Tin Tin to Lassie to Old Yeller to Benji to Beethoven to Hubble.

Now it's time for you to help us step up to the forefront of the new media—the bloggers. For too long certain other animals have been allowed to spread their influence across the internet. Dog bloggers—not pussyfooters—should be leadin' the way through the 21st century; blazin' a trail for our pups and grandpups; showin' any youngster they can do it. It's time for you humans to cast your 3 votes for real equality and diversity; to vote for the future of canines on the internet.

Don't let her be left behind…
