Imagine a world where raccoons were domesticated instead of wolves and we got the raccoon equivalent of a dog

Note that this was done in a relatively short time with foxes, see the Domesticated Silver Fox en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic

They had to kill a lot of foxes to "evolve" them in such a short period of time though..

@cwebber select is probably the right word. Also i think that was a biology project that slipped past the soviet union ideology police by being a fox farm.

@cwebber I share your concern in the subsequent replies, but I did want to mention a racoon pet, with their fingers and our desire to put everything in human clothes, well, that makes the most adorable anime character! ^_^
