Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring—it was peace. Milan Kundera. Dog – Man’s best friend for 30000 years

Canine skulls discovered in two separate digs reveal historic relationship. The Altai (Russia) skull was particularly well preserved, and allowed researchers to measure its teeth, jaws and snout for evidence it was domesticated. That suggested the dogs had been kept for protection and companionship by our ancient ancestors – just as they are today.
According to recent DNA research, all dogs came from a single wolf-like ancestor. Meanwhile, the Altai finds may prove that isn’t so. Traditionally, we think of domestication as being cows, sheep and goats, things that produce food through meat or secondary agricultural products such as milk, cheese and wool and things like that.
However, humans have had different relationships with dogs, not necessarily providing products or meat. ‘They are probably providing protection, companionship and perhaps helping on the hunt. And it’s really interesting that this appears to have happened first out of all human relationships with animals.
