Text “Animals at home: Dogs”
Nobody knows how the friendship between the man and the dog began:
Whether it came to the man by the smell of the food and the warmth of the fire,
Or the man brought the cub of wolf to his dwelling and tamed it. But nevertheless
, the dog is true friend and constant companion of a man for many thousand years. Skeletons and bones of dogs are found by archeologists at the places of excavations where prehistoric people lived. Ancient artists drew the pictures of the dogs on the rocks .In ancient Greece and Rome the dogs were so spread and valued so high that scientists and poets dedicated their poems and scientific works to them.
Of course ,dogs have not always been the ones we know nowadays. People began to create new breeds of dogs, using their natural qualities: a fine sense of smell, keen ear, strength and deftness. There are more than four hundred breeds of dogs now.
But the main quality of the dog is not in it’s working skills and tricks which it can be taught .The invaluable merit of the dog is in it’s unselfish love and devotion to the man. In many cities of the world there are monuments to the dogs-the the signs of memory and gratitude of the man to his four-legged friend.
