THE QUESTION AS ALWAYS WITH THE JUST SO STORIES...:

The Origin of Dogs: Fido's cousins may be Eurasian wolves, but new findings complicate the details of domestication (Katherine Harmon, 8/20/09, Scientific American)

From precious pomeranians to mangy mutts, all domestic dogs (Canis familiaris) seem to be descended from the Eurasian gray wolf (Canis lupis). But what we still don't know is exactly when and where our best friends transformed from predators into partners.

...is: are they being funny intentionally or accidentally. The notion that dogs "transformed" rather than "were transformed" can't be taken seriously.
