Interesting. I was reading something the other day about whether dogs potentially were domesticated more than once. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-ne ... 180964101/

Yes... good article. Thanks. Here's another recent article about North American dogs that were buried ritualistically by native Americans pre contact with Europeans and being distinctly different dogs. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/scie ... ster-ctvt/
