I don't know much about when humans evolved enough to have dogs as companions.....but I can't help believe that having dogs as companions almost had
to coinside with the evolution of humans. Think about it...humans do not have the smell or hearing abilities of animals..not even close. Those are
abilities that would be needed to ascertain predaters nearby. Who could provide us with such an advantage? Dogs, that's who! We love the same social
groups, companionship, warmth and protection we get from each other. I'm sure we humans now are no different than we were thousands of years ago of
our love of dogs and our dependence of them.
Makes me think of the faithful dog at the navy Seal's funeral recently...
