My Dog: The Reuleaux Triangle of Genetic Disorders


Check out the Border Wars post on these three dwarf genetic disorders and the breed standards that demand them. It's really interesting.

As much as I find my Izzy a delightful little photogenic and lovable beast, next time, it's a real, full-size dog for me.

Well, for what they lack in biological soundness, they make up for in charisma, no?

Speaking of Reuleaux triangles, I was at an educational summer camp once where one of the demonstrations was a cart with Reuleaux triangle shaped wheels. It was mind blowing watching it move along the track.

The other cart had square wheels, but it had to move along a special road that was half circles.
