Boil order still in effect for northern Cape County So now we are back to Who (really did) Let the Dogs out? woof woof woof woof? If dogs and man hung out 40,000 years ago then man was only a few brain cells above his companion with his clubs and hair pants. I believe animals crave human affection so I am not surprised however I can’t help but wonder what the role of the dog was in those days. Probably mostly in hunting as they can be today but also as guards. so now that I have worked it all out – nothing has really changed!
