A little post about dogs in Ancient Egypt.
According to this article dogs were companions to the King’s and some were even given names. Dogs clearly had an influence in Egyptian culture as can be seen in their God Anubis, who protects the dead on their journey into the afterlife. For this reason dog catacombs have been discovered containing mummified dogs.
Looking at these ancient cultures it can be easily seen that dogs have been an important part of human culture dating back many, many years. It indicates that they have been faithful nd loyal companions and for those reasons alone we should look after and respect them.
