In ancient egyptian dog is written as such : auau, uahr, uher...
None of those can pe pronounced backwards in the ancient translated egyption language so to speak although maybe in hieroglyphics, i have researched a
fair bit and not found any evidence!
Anubis is one of the most iconic gods of ancient Egypt. Anubis is the Greek version of his name, the ancient Egyptians knew him as Anpu (or Inpu).
Anubis was an extremely ancient deity whose name appears in the oldest mastabas of the Old Kingdom and the Pyramid Texts as a guardian and protector
of the dead. He was originally a god of the underworld, but became associated specifically with the embalming process and funeral rites. His name is
from the same root as the word for a royal child, "inpu". However, it is also closely related to the word "inp" which means "to decay", and one
versions of his name (Inp or Anp) more closely resembles that word.
Egyptians didn't worship Dogs, however, they DID worship cats.
During the classical age, there was no other aspect of Egyptian religion that elicited more derision from writers than the aspect of Egyptian animal
worship. Among the various cults established by the ancient Egyptians, it seems to many even today to be one of the most strange and mysterious. There
is evidence of animal cults that dates back to at least the fourth millennium BC in Egypt, including predynastic ritual burials of animals such as
gazelles, dogs, cattle, monkey and rams at sights such as Badari, Naqada, Maadi and Heliopolis. Erik Hornung notes that "the care with which these
animals were buried and provided with grave goods is evidence for a cult of sacred animals".
The words God and Dog are English so of course you could come up with this type of conclusion quite easily!
