JAB Canid E&C Center  Helping canids help themselves by healing humans! https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/11/17842410/pet-tame-foxes-domestication-dogs-genetics

We are half way thru the week and that is definitely something to sing about!! Singsongalongs Nicky R and Stumpy do Singing you their Wednesday song (pretty sure it’s the same song as every morning... but I don’t have a trained ear).
.
Nicky and Stumpy are New Guinea Singing dogs, and are considered a primitive dog- possibly the most primitive dog alive today. They are closely related to the AU Dingo. .
All we know is that these boys are pure love and magic. For anyone that meets them, they quickly realize how special they are and how friendly! We worked pretty darn hard at socializing these boys (and their siblings) during their socialization window... and it shows! Did you see the cameo of Nicky in the YouTube documentary?? If you haven’t seen the documentary featuring our center, experts Drs Clive Wynne and Anna Kukekova - please check it out on The Verge Science! .

Everybody needs a little Ishy Squishy to get them through Monday!! .
Ishy is a US tame fox owned by Amy and Dave Bassett. She is called a marble fox and is not one of the Russian domesticated foxes... she is their American girl!! All full of American sass!!! Her BFF is Boris, yes- Russians and Americans CAN be best friends!! She is absolutely adorable, but doesn’t like new people as much as the Russians... but that doesn’t make us love her any less! .
We are booked up until Nov 10th for our private encounters at the center in San Diego. .
We will be interviewing volunteers to help during the encounters. If interested and can commit to one day a month, please complete a volunteer application on our website. .
We are also looking for volunteers to help with construction, landscaping, social media, marketing and fundraising.
Dm or email if interested and responsible. Foxes@siberiancupcakes.com .
And become part of our Canid pack! .

Foxy Friday Factoid 5

Did you know that most species of foxes have vertically slit pupils and there is a very good reason for it ? Foxes are real survivors. One of the reasons for this is they are well adapted to be successful in a variety of conditions. It has been known for quite some time that foxes have vertically slit pupils but the reason for it was not known. Scientists have recently shed some light on this topic. It turns out the the ratio on the widest opening to the narrowest opening of the pupil can be far greater with a slit pupil than a round pupil. For instance the pupil area of a fox can change by a factor of 135 whereas the round pupil in a human can only change by a factor of 15. This gives the fox the ability to see well in varied light conditions. Another advantage this pupil shape gives foxes is the ability to focus on and determine the distance to prey at very short distances. Since foxes are ambush predators this is a useful ability. Foxes are truly poetry in motion on every level.

Foxy Friday Factoid 4

Did you know there is a canid living in South America that is the only species of its genus? It is called the Maned wolf but it is not actually a wolf. It is more closely related to foxes but it is not a true fox. These canids are mostly found in the tall grassland in Brazil and some surrounding countries. The urine of the Maned wolf actually smells like marijuana which has caused authorities looking for users of the prohibited substance to instead find a Maned wolf, no doubt to their surprise. Unfortunately, the Maned wolf is endangered due to habitat destruction as well as being killed by ranchers believing they will harm their cattle and sheep. This is a false belief as their prey sources a generally much smaller. We believe the Maned wolf deserves to live both as a species and as individuals. Do you agree?

Today we are meeting with Professor Joshua Paul from Tokyo University and talking about the cuteness!!! Has domestication made animals cuter?? What effect does cuteness have on our desire to engage/bond with animals and others.? .
I’m sure it will be a very fascinating meeting, as the topic is certainly absolutely adorbs! .

Libby Belle “Our American Girl” Party photos!! .
We had such a great time introducing some of our local friends, volunteers, and supporters to Libby Belle. She fit perfectly in the arms of many and brought a smile to everyone’s face!! As many of you know, we rescued little Liberty Belle from our friends at Keepers of the Bond, a non-profit rescue based in Ohio. Libby was one of 5 in her litter and we welcomed this little girl into our Canid pack! Two of the baby foxes went to @wildspiritwolfsanctuary - an amazing sanctuary in New Mexico, and one went to a local sanctuary in Ohio. One very special girl, Abby, is staying with the folks at Keepers. .
Little Libby is a US captive bred fox and not one of our Russian domesticated foxes (Belyaev foxes). Although she isn’t a domesticated fox, she is starting to learn some Russian 🤣😂. We are hoping between her intense socialization and being raised with the Russian foxes, that she will be able to participate in our programs. It’s okay if she isn’t- we will still love her and she will always be a part of our pack!! .
Fall in love with Little Liberty Belle, our American Girl 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

We became to busy with our in vivo Libby Belle Party, I forgot to go live!! I’m not the best at hosting parties and social media (which is why I still have my day job)... I will have to delegate the going live or the party hosting, so we can spend time sharing the Ambassadors and the love!!! .
We have an exciting week ahead of us!! We are meeting up with Professor Joshua Dale, who specializes in the new field of cute studies. He is a professor in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Tokyo Gakugei University.
We are very excited to share our very adorable Ambassadors with him and assist him with his research!! .
If you are interested in collaborating with our center, please let us know!! .
