A short poem by Aditya Sardana aka Adidarwinian in the honor of the eternal friendship between the man and his dog!!
“There are many relationships,
But, one that portrays the Perfect Companionship,
Exists between the man and his dog as the Eternal Friendship.”
Since the remote time, artists have drawn magnificent drawings and paintings depicting the man’s best friend, which is the dog. A timeless painting, the “Garden of Eden” by the famous Flemish painter Breughel / Brueghel, clearly depicts a dog lying complacently at the feet of Adam and Eve. There is full evidence to support the idea that in the earliest periods of human habitation of this planet, an ancient representative of our modern dog was befriended by the man. Dog was, still is, and will remain the very true animal companion of the man. The relationship between the dogs and human beings, at the primordial times that we are considering here, got its initial sturdiness by the virtue of the benefits delivered to both of them from the highly symbiotic nature of this relationship or companionship. Dog protected man from the wild animals, guarded his goats and sheep, and in return, the man gave him food, and bestowed upon his little companion a place to live. This semi-domestic friend of ours, in that ancient period, was probably like a surprisingly gentle jackal or a weak wolf. Eventually, our ancestors started trusting their new friend, cared for it, and entered into the everlasting passionate relationship.
