Interesting Fact: The origin of the domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris or Canis familiaris) is not clear. Whole genome sequencing indicates that the dog, the gray wolf and the extinct Taymyr wolf diverged at around the same time 27,000–40,000 years ago.[7] These dates imply that the earliest dogs arose in the time of human hunter-gatherers and not agriculturists.[31] Modern dogs are more closely related to ancient wolf fossils that have been found in Europe than they are to modern gray wolves.[32] Nearly all dog breeds’ genetic closeness to the gray wolf are due to admixture,[31] except several Arctic dog breeds are close to the Taimyr wolf of North Asia due to admixture.

  1. Another interesting fact: Pit Bulls were once called Nanny Dogs because they were so great with children (Still are, I’ve got two pitt bulls that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world)

    • Wow, i didn’t know that, thank you very much for stopping by and sharing this interesting fact with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. It does make sense that the hunter gatherers first domesticated dogs as hunting assistants. Much later, when men started experimenting with agriculture, the cat came into its own. Sally

  3. Another interesting fact: Seen above as a dog toy is a Monkey’s Fist knot, used to weight a lead-line for throwing towards boats for docking.

    Made a tug-o’-war toy of them, once.
