Dogs are definitely 'man's best friend', but why?? How did dogs become our closest pet friends??

They’re in our homes,
they’re on the bed.
They’re mixed, or fixed, or purist bred.
They’re cute, they’re strong, and past widespread.
What lead to the cred of “man’s best friend”?

Canis Lupus Familiaris
Go back a hundred thousand years.

Life was danger, darkness, fears!
Hunting was the only way
for our tribe to survive the day.
This simple life was far from charming,
no one had invented farming!

Taymyr Wolves were standing by.
Dog’s ancestors were less shy.
Started living a bit closer,
ate the scraps we thought were grosser.

They’d bark if they heard predators,
our hunting skills got bet-ator!
So what if they shed-ator,
they’re so much fun to pet-ator!

Canis Lupus Familiaris

Maybe you’re still asking why
a human tribe would choose to try
domesticating fearsome wolves
instead of something dumb with hooves?

The answer is we learned much more
in proximity to this carnivore.
Started living in dens and chasing tracks,
techniques for hunting game in packs.
Life was hard, but the solution:
partners in our evolution!

Competing species to co-teachers,
now dogs are our closest creatures!
Recognizing facial features.

They guide the blind, alert for seizures
In airports for our safe-procedures
On the porch for the evening lounge and leisure
And Airbud! He packed those bleachers!

Canis Lupus Familiaris

Who got the sweeter deal, the dog or you?
Since they’re not the one that has to pick up all that...
