Early man shared the spoils of his hunt with wild dogs, probably to alleviate the loneliness of the hunt. The dogs were quick to see the benefits of this relationship. They could flush the prey, but the man had weapons...perhaps only a sling and some stones, but the man had knives. He would field dress the kill in moments, and the dog received hairfree cuts of meat, without the work of tearing it apart with his jaws. It became a symbiotic relationship when, in the bitter cold of winter, the two huddled together, at night, sharing each other’s body warmth, until today the dog is considered man’s best friend.
