But when did man get his best friend, and why.
That person for me is my best friend Katrina.
THE relationship between people and dogs is unique. Among domesticated animals, only dogs are capable of performing such a wide variety of roles for humans: herding sheep, sniffing out drugs or explosives and being our beloved companions. It is hard to be precise about when the friendship began, but a reasonable guess is that it has been going strong for more than 20,000 years. In the Chauvet cave in the Ardèche region of France, which contains the earliest known cave paintings, there is a 50-metre trail of footprints made by a boy of about ten alongside those of a large canid that appears to be part-wolf, part-dog. The footprints, which have been dated by soot deposited from the torch the child was carrying, are estimated to be about 26,000 years old.
In my case, I have known my best friend for my entire life.
According to that, we can make no other conclusion, but admitting that dogs are man’s best friends. And due to that, we have much to learn from them in our human relationships. No matter how passionately you search for truth, you can’t be sure in things you try to believe. Meanwhile dogs prove their honesty with no words. Sometimes even it seems to us, that they understand us better than anyone else, and although they can’t speak in turn, they always support us with their faithful eyes, putting their heads on our knees and probably trying to assure us that everything will be okay.
