2: Dog and human civilization

The earliest domesticated animals as human beings, dogs are associated with the existence and evolution of human civilization are inextricably linked. For it, people not only with beautiful works of art to be praise, but also view them as the most faithful guardian of the zodiac is an important one. Dog in the eyes of the Chinese people always have a high status. This is evident from archaeological finds unearthed in China’s growing can be seen. In October 2002, archaeologists discovered in Luoyang city center shocked the world of the Zhou driving six East chariot pits.

Although it is not pet the dogs, but owners of hunting dogs, along with the owner of the car was before the horse, all-powerful, won in hunting, no credit has elbow grease, how to eventually become the sacrificial lambs? Perhaps the people at that time, let the beloved dogs for their sacrificial victims, is the highest honor to a dog.
