History of dogs

In these days and age, dogs and human live so closely each other. Human provide food,shelter,love,health care,exercise for dogs, and dogs provide us comfort,protection, and companionship. I was curious to know when domestication of dogs has started.

According to about.com,the earliest dog remain (not wolf) archaeologist has found is from Oberkassel,Germany.It was buried with human remain.The remain dating back to 14,000 years. And dog history has been studied using mitochondrial DNA, which suggests that wolves and dogs split into different species around 100,000 years ago.

Interesting thing I have found through agreyhoundswish.org is that Egyptian tomb painting dating back to 2200BC had greyhound,suluki painting.

Dogs and human seem to have been companions each other for such a long time..
