Middleburg Mystique: A Peek Inside the Gates of Middleburg, Virginia (Capital Hometown Guides)
"Middleburg Mystique" reveals the charm of this village of 650 residents and the surrounding swath of horse farms just 50 miles west of Washington, D.C. Through the years, there have been scandalous stories of divorce - when actor Robert Duvall’s wife ran off with the poolman - and murders among the rich such as when arms heiress Susan Cummings shot her Argentinean polo-playing lover. It is a community that will gladly gossip about your misdeeds then turn around and protect you as if you were family. It is also a town that has captivated many well-known personalities from the Kennedys, Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Wagner, and Oliver North - all of whom have called Middleburg home. A peek behind the grand stone entrances of massive estates with names such as "The Meadows" or "Heathfield" that belong to families such as the Firestones, Mellons, and Marriotts and along dirt roads named "Frogtown" and "Sally Mill", where you will find that, yes, there must be something in that well water.

Dog From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the domestic dog. For other uses, see Dog (disambiguation). Domestic dog Fossil range: Late Pleistocene – Recent A Labrador Retriever Conservation status Domesticated Scientific classification Kingdom:Animalia Subkingdom:Eumetazoa Phylum:Chordata Subphylum:Vertebrata Class:Mammalia Subclass:Theria Order:Carnivora Suborder:Caniformia Family:Canidae Subfamily:Caninae Tribe:Canini Genus:Canis Species:C. lupus Subspecies:C. l. familiaris Trinomial name Canis lupus familiaris Synonyms Canis familiaris Canis familiaris domesticus The dog (Canis lupus familiaris, pronounced /?ke?.nis ?lu?p?s f??m?li??ris/, nicknamed: Man's Best Friend) is a domesticated subspecies of the Gray Wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. The term is used for both feral and pet varieties. The domestic dog has been one of the most widely kept working and companion animals in human history. Amongst canine enthusiasts, the word "dog" may also mean the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word "bitch" (the female of the species). The dog quickly became ubiquitous across culture in all parts of the world, and was extremely valuable to early human settlements. For instance, it is believed that the successful emigration across the Bering Strait might not have been possible without sled dogs. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, protection, and, more recently, assisting handicapped individuals. Currently, there are estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world. Over the 15,000 year span that the dog had been domesticated, it diverged into only a handful of landraces, groups of similar animals whose morphology and behavior have been shaped by environmental factors and functional roles. As the modern understanding of genetics developed, humans began to intentionally breed dogs for a wide range of specific traits. Through this process, the dog has developed into hundreds of varied breeds, and shows more behavioral and morphological variation than any other land mammal. For example, height measured to the withers ranges from a few inches in the Chihuahua to a few feet in the Irish Wolfhound; color varies from white through grays (usually called "blue'") to black, and browns from light (tan) to dark ("red" or "chocolate") in a wide variation of patterns; coats can be short or long, coarse-haired to wool-like, straight, curly, or smooth. It is common for most breeds to shed this coat, but non-shedding breeds are also popular.

The term is sometimes used to refer to a wider range of species: it can be used to refer to any mammal belonging to the family Canidae, which includes wolves, foxes, jackals, and coyotes; it can be used to refer to the subfamily of Caninae, or the genus Canis, also often called the "true dogs". Some members of the family have "dog" in their common names, such as the Raccoon Dog and the African Wild Dog. A few animals have "dog" in their common names but are not canids, such as the prairie dog and the dog fish. The English word dog comes from Middle English dogge, from Old English docga, a "powerful dog breed". The term may derive from Proto-Germanic *dukkon, represented in Old English finger-docce ("finger-muscle"). The word also shows the familiar petname diminutive -ga also seen in frogga "frog", picga "pig", stagga "stag", wicga "beetle, worm", among others. Due to the archaic structure of the word, the term dog may ultimately derive from the earliest layer of Proto-Indo-European vocabulary, reflecting the role of the dog as the earliest domesticated animal. Dog ousted traditional English hound by the 16th century, before which time it had the meaning of "dog" rather than modern "hunting dog", as in other Germanic languages – it is cognate to German Hund, Dutch hond, common Scandinavian hund, and Icelandic hundur. Hound itself is derived from the Proto-Indo-European *kwon- "dog", found in Welsh ci (plural cwn), Latin canis, Greek kyon, Lithuanian suo, just to name a few. In breeding circles, a male canine is referred to as a dog, while a female is called a bitch. A group of offspring is a litter. The father of a litter is called the sire, and the mother is called the dam. Offspring are generally called pups or puppies until they are about a year old. The process of birth is whelping.

Adventures of Sea Rabbits (Part 3): Seara (Coney Island Sea Rabbit) and Stripes (Coney Island Tiger-striped Sea Rabbit). This website features two species of sea rabbits, which have been taken care of by Takeshi Yamada. They are – Coney Island Sea Rabbit (Monafluffchus americanus) called “Seara” and Coney Island Tiger-striped Sea Rabbit (Monafluffchus konjinicus) called “Stripes”. The photographs and videos featured in this website chronicle adventures of Coney Island sea rabbits and the world as seen by them. This article also documented efforts of Takeshi Yamada for bringing back the nearly extinct sea rabbits to Coney Island in the City of New York and beyond. (“Coney Island: literally means “Wild Rabbit Island” named by Dutch when they colonized the island in the 17th century.) Yamada produced a series of public lectures, workshops, original public live interactive fine art performances and fine art exhibitions about sea rabbits at a variety of occasions and institutions in the City of New York and beyond. Yamada is an internationally active educator, book author, wildlife conservationist and high profile artist, who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. The sea rabbit is closely related to the common sea dog and sea lion. A large population of sea rabbits used to live in North Eastern shores of the United States, especially in the shores of Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York. The word “Coney” of “Coney Island” means “wild rabbit” in Dutch. The “wild rabbit” was originally referred to this beach-dwelling swimming rabbit-like animal by the early Dutch explores when they colonized this area (the larger area was called New Amsterdam – today’s New York) Sea rabbits were also referred mermaid rabbit, merrabbit, rabbit fish or seal rabbit in the early natural history documents. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sea Rabbit Other Common Names: Coney Island Sea Rabbit, Beach Rabbit, Seal Rabbit, mer-rabbit Latin Name: Monafluffchus americanus Origin: Coney Island area of Brooklyn, New York, USA Date: 1609 AD Size: 33x7x8 inch (84x18x20 cm) Description of the specimen: In the early 17th century’s European fur craze drove the fleet of Dutch ships to the eastern costal area of America. Then Holland was the center of the world just like the Italy was in the previous century. New York City was once called New Amsterdam when Dutch merchants landed and established colonies. Among them, Henry Hudson is probably the most recognized individual in the history of New York City today. “This small island is inhabited by two major creatures which we do not have in our homeland. The one creature is a large arthropod made of three body segments: the frontal segment resembles a horseshoe, the middle segment resembles a spiny crab and its tail resembles a sharp sword. Although they gather beaches here in great numbers, they are not edible due to their extremely offensive odor. Another creature which is abundant here, has the head of wild rabbit. This animal of great swimming ability has frontal legs resemble the webbed feet of a duck. The bottom half of the body resembles that of a seal. This docile rabbit of the sea is easy to catch as it does not fear people. The larger male sea rabbits control harems of 20 to 25 females. The meat of the sea rabbit is very tender and tasty.” This is what Hadson wrote in his personal journal in 1609 about the horseshoe crab and the sea rabbit in today’s Coney Island area of Brooklyn, New York. Sadly, just like the Dodo bird and the Thylacine, the sea rabbit was driven to extinction by the European settlers’ greed. When Dutch merchants and traders arrived here, sea rabbits were one of the first animals they hunted down to bring their furs to homeland to satisfy the fur craze of the time. To increase the shipment volume of furs of sea rabbit and beavers from New Amsterdam, Dutch merchants also started using wampum (beads made of special clam shells) as the first official currency of this country. At the North Eastern shores of the United States, two species of sea rabbits were commonly found. They are Coney Island Sea Rabbit (Monafluffchus americanus) and Coney Island Tiger-striped Sea Rabbit (Monafluffchus konjinicus). Sadly, due to their over harvesting in the previous centuries, their conservation status became “Extinct in the Wild” (ET) in the Red List Endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Currently, these sea rabbits are only found at breeding centers at selected zoos and universities such as Coney Island Aquarium and Coney Island University in Brooklyn, New York. The one shown in this photograph was named "Seara" and has been cared by Dr. Takeshi Yamada at Coney Island University. The sea rabbit is one of the families of the Pinniped order. Pinnipeds (from Latin penna = flat and pes/pedis = foot) are sea-mammals: they are homeothermic (i.e having high and regulated inner
