    Can Podengos and other dogs sense DNA?

    Maria jumped up on 12 Lithuanian women who were on holiday in the Cape Verdes. She had obviously counted them, because one was walking away and Maria followed her to complete her tally. Fortunately the women seemed to like dogs. Recently a Lithuanian in England delivered some logs and she jumped up him as well. He also liked dogs. The connection may be through Claire who was born in Broughty Ferry near Dundee in Scotland. The people on the east cost of Scotland were called Picts, by the Romans, because they painted themselves for battle. They defeated the Romans who never managed to occupy Scotland. They left behind no language, just jewels, ornaments, ruined burial sites and tools. They introduced oats and thus porridge, Scotland`s national breakfast dish. They are quite unlike the Celts, on the western side of Scotland, who came across from Ireland. DNA research suggests that the Picts must have sailed down the Baltic and across the North Sea. They are taller and slimmer than the Celts and most have narrow feet. They are closely related to the people who now live in the Baltic states of Lithuania and Latvia.

    Claire is unable to buy shoes that fit her feet in England and has usually bought them in Massachussets or Florida, where there are Baltic emigrants. Perhaps the DNA also determines smell and this is why Maria likes Baltic people.
