Things have changed a lot. If I was to say “I can get someone to deliver me whatever I want to eat” about 12000 years ago, they would literally die of laughter. But there is one thing that has been pretty similar if we go through this long 12000 year time period. It’s related to our good boys, the dogs! I know you guys just got more excited after that word.
We all love dogs so much and they have been hard at work to support us as well, assisting us in our work. The dog was the first-ever animal to be domesticated and that happened almost 12,000 years ago. Back then dogs were used to assist their owners in hunting and stuff similar to that. Things are pretty same now, only the nature of the assistance has changed quite a lot. Dogs now help police officers, doctors, their owners to find something they lose every time and so much more. Let’s just say there’s a little more wholesomeness and cuteness associated with dogs helping out humans. They really put in all the effort and the satisfaction from their owners is what makes them happier and motivated. After all, that’s what dogs want; love, trust, acceptance, and affection.
