OK, via Occam's razor, the simplest explanation for convergent evolution is that evolution is constrained by laws down similar paths.  Postulating that random mutations coupled with natural selection can produce the same happy accident numerous times is a much more complicated explanation.

No it isn't. See, I can produce unevidenced assertions just as well as you can.

Perhaps you would like to tell us what these laws are and how they specify the paths. The only way I can imagine you see it is that somewhere in the cells of primitive wolves, hyaenas and marsupial wolves (presumably in all of the cells, unless it somehow gets restricted to the eggs and/or sperm) there is a little instruction saying 'Your descendents shall become ever more dog-like'. I can't imagine how this is stored or implemented. Could you please elucidate?

All sweeping statements are wrong.
