Earliest Known Images of Dogs Reveal Origins of Their Bond With Humans

“We both got really excited when we realized we might have the oldest depiction of leashes, and that images may give us a lot of information on dog domestication and the use of dogs in complex dog-assisted hunting strategies.”
The dogs depicted appear similar to the modern day Canaan dog. http://www.inverse.com/article/38541-oldest-images-dogs-archeology

Neat!

My mother and I took the dog (Australian Silky Terrier) on a walk to the local Catholic church/school parking lot, in front of it was a manager, and joining the three wisemen, Joseph and a sheep, etc, were three photo cutouts of coyote (they're God's creatures too, so why not).  I am sure some prankster put them out.  But anyways, I was surprised when the dog reacted to the two dimensional cutout of the coyotes.  growling and put off by the cutouts.  I always thought dogs didn't pay attention to two-dimensional stuff, and tv, so forth.

I have a Terrier/American Pit Bull cross. She watches TV most of the night, and if she sees a strange animal, runs up to the TV, barking and making a fuss.

Just goes to show that science isn't always up to date on some matters.

But isn't it strange than, in many respects, dogs have developed more of the better characteristics than some humans?
