When they say Dog is a Mans Best Friend, they aren't kidding. Archaeologist have found the dog with the oldest domestic DNA.
Many cultures explain the way dogs came to be man's best friend. One religion says that man one day went looking for fruit to eat, as man hadn't yet learned to hunt. The man c…ouldn't find any fruit because of the big floods, so went looking for items to hunt the animals of the forest with. The man couldn't catch the birds, the monkeys and the wild cats very well, so hunted fish. He caught so many. The God got angry because all the fish were nearly gone. God decided to turn some fish into dogs to help Man kill all the animals to keep them even. While the man returned to catch fish, the dog had caught a monkey at his feet and gave it to the man. The scientific way dogs were the first domestic animal because they were great at hunting and had great noses to smell with. The cave men found dogs and saw they caught well, so tried to tame dogs to hunt for the cave men. Since the dogs where very wild back then, it took a while. A least one cave man kept a dog as a pet and handed down the idea from generation to generation, and look what's happened now!
